Which Seven String...

So after I'm able to upgrade my amp, I'm probably going to be looking at getting my first seven string guitar. I've been leaning more towards an Ibanez or an Agile, as they seem to have some pretty decent models that aren't super expensive. That being said, I figured I'd go ahead and ask you guys.

Budget: around $500, could possibly go higher if the deal was good enough. Very willing to used.

Sound: I would mainly be using it for extreme metal and power metal, but versatility is still something that's preferred if I can have the best of both worlds.

Location: Orlando and Daytona Beach are the two closest major cities.

Preferences: Active pups (or at least good passives), Floyd Rose. I like tacky over-the-top body shapes, too, but that's secondary to everything else.

Current gear: PRS SE Paul Allender, Peavey PXD 23

I haven't decided yet, but I'm leaning towards a 6505.

Righto.

The RG7620 would be incredibly solid choice, though they're a liiiiittle difficult to come across. They pop up on Ebay every so often (there's one for $699+shipping up right now...) with prices from 500-800.

If you really want a Floyd seven, and don't want to wait much for a perfect deal, get an Agile. Or an Ibanez RG7320
