Pretty, but it's a 25" scale.
I have always wanted to try a 7 string with a JB7, 'cause a lot of people seem to like it.
So maybe I should pay 1850$ to try the JB7
Nice guitars! I really like the GG7 on the Ormsby site.
Looks like an ESP headstock. I hate that headstock.
That is a sweet top. OFR-7, too.
Bolt on! The only one thing, which is kills everything, that they want to do -
Bolt on kills everything. )) Worthless efforts...
Needs chrome instaed of gold and a neck pickup.
Tell that to Eric Johnson ;p
Looks sweet, I wish I had $3200 right now.
That is nice. The body reminds me alot of a Jackson.
Why should I? ;-) Many people plays on bolt-on neck. It doesn't means that bolt-on necks is better, than neck-thru.
p.s. After all, there is big difference between Eric's Layla, and let's say - shred
Could you be thinking of Eric Clapton?
Quite possibly, ben. And skyclad, it also doesn't mean that bolt-on is worse.
The only dealbreaker, for me, is the 25" scale. A seven NEEDS to be 25.5 or longer, IMO, unless you're tuning it up and not down.
I actually prefer bolt-ons - they're alledgedly a little brighter and snappier, and while I have no idea if this is true, it's what I'm used to, I find them comfortable, and I certianly have no problems with notes not sustaining long enough...
I think, if anything, we can take from this conversation that no one guitar is right for EVERYONE. It doesn't work for me because the scale's way too short for what I feel a seven should be, and it doesn't work for you because it's not neck thru. Clearly, the scale doesn't bother you, and clearly, the bolt on neck doesn't phase me in the least - we happen to agree, but for two totally different reasons.
I think 25" might be interesting, although I've never been as fond of the overtones of that scale as the two most popular ones (25.5" and 24.75") - which is probably why I'm not much of a PRS fan.
