Just recently put 68 52 42 30 17 13 10 (D'Addario) on my Schecter for Open C. That's fun.

Also tuned my AW-7 with 70 56 46 36 26w 17 13 (La Bella) up to B standard for a little while because I wanted to see what would happen. Back to A standard. They survived, but it was crazy ****ing tight. 68 seems to be common for B on baritones. I believe that is stock on the Ibanez Iron Label 28", that Fender Tele baritone (maybe) and the now discontinued Mushok (maybe, lot of maybes in parentheses going on here).

They're not going anywhere.



Still trying to figure this one and wouldn't mind swapping it for the SCT-607B.

Dat Iceman tho. IC700 right?

That is one hell of a collection of Soldanos. The SLO100 is basically my dream amp. Definitely getting that as my next head.

Not in the market for one yet. Can't say I'd mind the combo though.

I'm really starting to dig the **** out of the Schecter KM-7. The fretboard width was a smidge wide at first, and resulted in a lot of miscues, but it's starting to feel and play awesome now. Very clear and articulate.

Missed having passives

Some guys find it hard to go back to a 6 string because a 7 just feels so natural and comfortable for them.

I wonder how the neck compares to my Loomis...

I'm guessing some of you guys here might be able to answer this question, maybe - mainly I just want to know about playing songs on a 7 string that were written on a 6 string.. I'm guessing it's not too much an issue besides adjusting chords for songs in drop D?

I write and play with a 6 string currently and have been wanting to get another with an FR, but lately I've been wanting a 7 string so I think I just want to kill 2 birds with one stone and get a 7 string FR.

Probably going to go with an Agile Interceptor Pro with SD Blackouts I think. I've always wanted the green but they have the flat black on sale for $150 less right now

Edit: Should've looked at their second page.. I could go for the black flame with maple fretboard for $500. Does anyone know the word on the Cepheus pick ups? From a couple quick searches I get the impression they're acceptable but not great. Will probably switch out to passives someday regardless of what guitar I end up getting anyway though.

Yeah, transposing to 7 isn't terribly difficult. I still find it easier personally to write and play in drop tunings.

The Cepheus pickups are basically supposed to be Lundgren M6/7/8 clones in both looks and sound, same magnets and very close on the DC resistance (source from Meshuggah's guitar tech ) They are pretty good for stock pickups, but not spectacular in any regard.

^agreed about the cepheus pickups. I actually really liked them in my old 8 string intrepid but the ones that came in my 7 string AL are a bit dark and fuzzy. the bridge pup sounds OK in my swirly warmoth 7 but im definitely going to replace it with something clearer.
