Hey people. My name's David, from Sydney Australia, and a 7 string addict. Cool to see a dedicated website for these awesome instruments. Thread title says it all. Personally, Morbid Angel inspired me to check out 7 strings with tracks like God of Emptiness and Where the Slime Live. These songs are some of the heaviest ever recorded and when I heard them I thought to myself this is something i need to investigate! The first 7 string I played was a crappy Ibanez AX that was cool but didnt impress me that much: the neck was far from comfortable and the sound wasnt great either. I was still interested though. Soon after, I picked up an ESP LTD 7, and immediately I knew that I had to have one. Since then I've been utterly hooked. Most 6 strings feel like toys to me. No going back!
