Couldn't tell you that, but I can say if you set up the intonation properly (which needs to done each time you re-tune, same as adjusting the truss rod) you probably won't have too many issues.

I found this particular guitar on gumtree, and it looks like a good buy to me.

That's an excellent buy. The only thing is, I'd still replace the pickups. Those stock pickups are mid output, I'd say. But you'd have more cash to both replace the pickups and save up for other stuff!

Why people make such a threads, 7 string and 6 string is same guitar expect with one Bottom string, both guitars are same. Only thing matters is SCALE , 25,5 or 27 if u want more tension...

I've asked them about it, and whether i'd be able to get a courier service to bring it to me, seeing as it's so far away from me (I live in the south of England). Would it be a bad idea to buy blind? I mean from the pictures it looks in good nick.
and while the pickups should be replaced, after this, the peavey is next on my list, so pickups can wait.

Scale length is everything, man...

It's what makes a 7 string possible. It's why we can have baritone guitars and bass guitars.

Well, do they have a return policy?

I have bought loads of stuff (including guitars and amps) off eBay. I highly doubt it wouldn't work.

May do? I'm not sure. Waiting on a reply from them at the moment.
And I expect this is trustable, from the picture of the guitar, and description, it seems the owner would be a reliable seller, considering they have a few expensive looking amps and other guitars on the wall.
