    my Carvin 7-string has a really wide string spacing throughout the whole neck, and I'm not used to those things. which manufacturers have 7-strings with a narrow spacing?

    thanks

    Well, I prefer the wider spacing-it's the one thing I couldn't stand on my 6 strings. I don't have big hands.

    I believe most seven strings have wide spacing at the nut. To get a narrow spacing, I think you'd have to go custom or Warmoth has narrow spacing as an option on thier seven string necks.

    i meant standard spacing, not narrow spacing...... like an ESP Horizon string spacing plus the extra 7... do Ibanez RG series have Gibson-type spacing or a wider spacing?

    What's the measurement on the Carvin? Both my Ibanez RG7421 and Schecter 007 Blackjack measure 1 5/8" from the center of the low B to the center of the high E (NOT the nut width, the total nut width is 1 7/8", just the string spacing at it's widest).
