+1 SYL

I cringe when people think 8 string players are trying to replace bass guitars.

On a separate note, I need SYL albums in my collection...

Might be buying a Heafy LP7 in a couple of weeks, obviously I won't buy if I try it and don't like it!

Would buy the Chapman but I can't try that AND I'm not a massive fan of Chappers either

My Jackson JS22-7 should be arriving soon, after a 2 month wait. Likely going to tune it to a variant of drop C.
I'll see how the stock pups turn out..but if they aren't especially good, what passive set would you recommend for playing prog metal/djent type stuff to core' metal?

Read up that quite a few people like Nazguls in bridge & something like a sentient in neck. Then again, maybe they weren't using basswood guitars so the Nazgul could be a wrong choice.

I would assume GCGCFAD most likely. Others are possible of course, but that's the most likely in my experience.

Depends how you want to work it. Another low string would most logically be a G#, A# is another logical one, you could double the low C# (did simlar for a recording session once), you could also double the high Eb (I believe Steph from Deftones does that for older material these days)... there are certainly other options as well.

nope you're totally wrong. A pretty weird tuning for a 7.. but either of these 3

C G C F G A D (drop C with a half step G string in between F & A)

C G C F G C G# (variant on above mentioned tuning)

C G C F A D B# (Drop C with extra high string. Unlikely to use this tuning, too uninteresting )

Means in a cover situation the guitar will be useless, but from messing around with my 6 in C G C F G C, I like it quite a lot. The top variant is quite nice also for easily getting dischords as well.
