People are preferring the longer scales because the low string can get really really floppy in drop tunings.

^ That.

If you're just doing standard, 25.5 is fine.

just keep in mind that some people take it to the extreme (IMO) and swear by nothing shorter than 30" for the low low stuff. I lean towards thicker strings and shorter scale length as its very uncomfortable for my wrist to play on 28"+. plus, its weird doing bends on longer scales. throws me off

I built a Vader and added it to my cart to get an idea of the cost. There is a 25.5" option and I think it is even free.



Confirmed. Available for the Vader 6 and Vader 7.

I still think the Vader is ugly. It's like all the worst parts of a steinberger and a RG put together to me. If I really needed another 7 I'd actually consider the Les Paul 7 string or an Agile AL custom.

That body and finish is killer. Does it wear away like the M8M and M80M? I want a guitar like that.

I kind of wish I hadn't ordered my swirly warmoth that took 3 years to get to me, but im just gonna make the best of it
