    I was wondering what kind of interest there would be in a PRS SE 7 string guitar. There hasn't been any talks of one but I figured I'd ask some of you guys and maybe I can nudge someone here at PRS in the right direction. Thanks guys :hbang:

    I'd definitely look into one if it hit stores.

    Isn't the Torero supposed to be the platform for a future PRS 7 string?

    No. We didnt make the Torero to be an intended platform for a future 7. The Torero was just it's own thing. There haven't been any conversations about using the Torero as a starting point for a 7 string.

    A single-cut seven would be pretty cool, and certainly unique in face of all the super-strat sevens there already is.

    So long as it still looks like a regular PRS, then yes, certainly! There was some USA custom PRS 7 posted on here a little while ago that looked great, except that the headstock was created by the guy in the custom shop that was tripping on acid.

    I had a PRS SE custom 22 and really liked it, for being an import I was incredibly impressed by the attention to detail. The thing played like butter and was incredibly resonant. Mainly got rid of it only cause it was a 6, and I had a difficult time staying in tune with the trem and lower tunings.
    I'd be highly interested in a PRS SE 24, though I really am not fond of the wraparound tail. That would be a dealbreaker for me. String through or tailpiece TOM, or vintage style trem would be fine; fixed hardtail would be awesome IMO. Keep the market price around $700 or better and it's a sale.

    Also, what heel are you using now?

    I would love a 7 String SE model. I would love both double and single cut versons, and actually I would by most if they would do a semi hollow SE model.

    PRS C24 7 would be the greatest guitar ever made. I'd absolutely buy an SE 7 as soon as I possibly could if PRS were to start making them.

    This. Just kinda indifferent on this one. If an SE model is made though, they should add a C24-7 to the standard lineup for a reasonable up-charge.

    The SEs, for me, are just waaay too pedestrian to warrant a lot excitement...

    Not trying to put a golden-shower over anyones parade - Just IMO :lol::realmad::lol:

    ^Totally understand... they're a different feel than the typical superstrat, and different sound as well. It wouldn't be a main player of mine but i could have alot of fun with it, imagining a bluesy, heavy radio rock or something. I don't think it would necessarily be marketed to metal players/shredders as much? IMO.

    I'd get excited over an arch/carved top C24 se7most definitely... but I don't think that's going to happen.

    While I would love to own a real PRS, at this point in time I would only be able to swing an SE model.

    I love the SEs. For under a grand, they are really well built and great sounding. If PRS did an SE C24-7 then I would get it no question. If they did a USA model I'd kill people until I had sold enough of their organs on the black market to buy one.

    Apparently Paul said at NAMM in response to being asked about a PRS 7 'Not this year, but soon'. I should hope so, the new PRS models seem a bit more adventurous and many people have pined in threads like this for a 7, I should imagine it will happen soon.

    I am in as long as it doesn't have a TOM and/or has the option of a wilkinson/strat style trem.

    This


    Imagine this in a 7 form.
