    I sold my pierced SG a couple of years back - you really aren't missing much, pretty crap tbh. Regardless, I remember seeing it when I was about 13 and thinking it was the coolest thing ever.

    Yeah, I wanted one as a kid. None of those guitars mentioned I'd personally use (besides the ML and maybe the Halberd). They're just collector objects that are significant to me in some way.

    What I WOULD do, however, is get MLs based on the specs of those collector pieces as playable tributes that I would actually use

    I've got my 2, rather 1 so far and 1 on the way, but I'd love to get an ESP Arrow 7 sometime. Definitely would like a KKW7 since it's the weirdest 7 I know of with a Kahler. There's no A7FRS variants to pick up, I wasn't a huge fan of the ocean burst quilt top of the one I had. Probably a Kelly 7 if they exist too, preferably Kahler but I'd take a floyd. Pics-----

    Ibanez DCM100. Can't seem to find one, and when I do I can't justify the price they are usually asking. And a Hot pink Warlock to match my Pink Warlock bass.

    Not too many Kelly 7s out there but there are a few

    Here's my favorite:

    And one I used to own that had an Edge because Floyd 7s didn't exist at the time it was made. It wasn't a great guitar (amazing quality, but it was a bolt on since the body was solid quilt, which also led to atrocious upper fret access) but I'd buy it back in a second just for nostalgia since I was the original owner:

    No idea how rare it actually is, and I've never actually looked for one, but I've never seen one for sale anywhere.

    Don't buy from eBay. The reason you see multiple listings for the same guitar is that the eBay listings are made by re-sellers who don't actually own the guitar. They buy it from the store in Japan when you win the bid and charge you a substantial fee.


    The one you were looking at on eBay is sold by QSIC, a store in Japan. Here's the actual digimart listing from the store that has the guitar.

    I found a much nicer Edwards E-HR 115D at Hardoff, a Japanese second hand store.

    They exist, but are definitely few and far between. Apart from the custom shop that sporadically made a few over the years, I've seen a few old Jackson Stars production models float around the used market way back.

    Parker fly 7 string. Saw one on reverb a few years back that was ruined from an emg install gone wrong. Wanted $1500 for it…. I think about that guitar alot

    Those are cool for sure and I have seen them around but any guitar I'm gonna keep is gonna have a trem, idk why but I started with a floyd and I've never paid for a guitar without one. I will admit, those have great tops though and I'm not one for tops.

    Could always put a kahler on it after the fact.

    Love these and the Y2K V. Only thing that puts me off them is that knob position. I prefer them behind the bridge. The guitar looks so damn good in silver.
