    If it's like Jason from FFDP who had that retarded 7-string with the fingerboard allowing only 6-string fretting from like the 7th or 9th fret up, I'll pass, thank you. :lol:

    Hahahaha! Had forgotten about that glorious thing. No, man - he had an aberration designed to "facilitate soloing", in which the neck was simply shaved to be like that of a 6-string, leaving the 7th just hanging there. That one is amazing: "designed to facilitate vibrato and prevent fretting-out", they said. :rofl:

    There was a video of it, but it was removed after the massive amount of mockery it attracted. A shame - it had fantastic entertainment value! :lol:

    Using ancient lute terminology, he's obviously referring to a 15 string with 7 of them being octave pairs, and one single bass string. Hence 7.5 string.

    I can't wait!

    Yeah, it was posted here a while back and yeah, just reading that thread was rather painful.

    I like the idea of a new Apex Munky sig. Let's hope it doesn't turn out like that though.

    or have all the treble strings have octave pairs so it'll be like the 9 string to the 6 string, but it'll be a 10 string

    It's almost as pointless as Munky having a 7 string, to start with. It's not like Korn plays more than 10 different notes in their songs anyways.

    Here we go again.

    You couldn't possibly want a 7 string for any reason other playing them all at once. </sarcasm>

    And just in case: no I am not a fan of Korn.

    You know Munky does have 2 sig guitars so maybe by saying 7 1/2 he's referring to one of those two being updated? That would make sense.

    That would be dumb because the string would never reach the pick-up.
