While it's highly unlikely that a forum thread will change a business model, maybe if enough people repeat the same brand or model we can slowly convince some guitar manufacturers out there to release at least a short run of 7 stringers (don't hold your breath). I would love to see G&L release a 7 string Commanche and/or Asat. I wish Tom Anderson would consider making a 7 string with a Tele shape. A 7 string Dean Cadillac would have tons of cool factor. PRS should release a core 7 string (the SE model is great, but a U.S. made core would be a work of art). Who/what else should consider extended range guitarists?
