So after selling a Loomis 4 years ago, I am again in a band with sevenstring material. I've stayed with those guys for almost a year now, so I believe it's about time to be able to properly cover what tracks use a seven in them. I've been prowling the local used market the last 2 months, and literally everything sevenstring related is overcosted, cheap and "badly" used instruments (there is even a dude selling a washburn for 350, siting a thread here as reference, where the OP says he bought it for 100$ ). There is just one RG1527z (stock) in players condition going for 480 right now. So I've started checking potential new targets. Thomann is blowing out the SE 247 at 550, and I was eyeing the Jackson SCX7 as well at 685. I don't really need a trem on a seven (already got 2). I didn't really gel with the Loomis 26,5' scale. The SE needs hardware upgrades iirc, whereas the Jackson ships with nazgul-sentient pus. Can I do much better than those 2 in the 600-800 budget bracket? Am I stupid to miss the used RG1527z?
