Official 7 string+ ERG thread - The Seven String Legion (pt.2)

So guys after 25,000+ posts and near 50,000 views...i decided the old thread could deserve an archive.
Welcome to..

The UG Seven String + ERG Legion pt.II

...the only official 7 string + ERG thread on UG
Members and their 7(s):

Godofshred and Humm_De_humm:



Bowen:



Absent Mind:


Ippon:



MORE TO COME!


About the legion:
- A dedicated group of 7 string* players who discuss, play and live for extended range guitars. From 7 string standard scale, to anything you can imagine...you're welcome.

Legion? Who?

-We've been here for over 3 years now...get used to it!

Ok, so who is in charge?
-We are family...there IS order but it is there to recognise members who are putting outstanding contribution in their well deserved place. See the names below? Listen to them, PM them with questions..send them cookies and give them foot rubs. Thats why they are on the list and thats why I trust them to give you what you need to know. But remember there is not always a right or a wrong, often enough just opinions.

Ranks can and DO change on a frequent basis.
(in descending order of position, all members of the same position are equal. Highlighted members are of Mod/site maintenance status)



Founding Field Marshalls:
Godofshred (V)
Humm_de_Humm (V)


Field Marshalls
Absent Mind (V)
Ippon (V)

Bowen (V)

Field Marshals in training
littlemurph7976 (V)
Zaphod_Beeblebr (V)


Generals

Lieutenants

admbwr

How do i join the list?
Easily..show outstanding contribution to the thread. Ask and you may receive...a slap. We call you..dont ask for a rank.

Sign me up sarge!
Great! just post
Got a 7 string? Even better! Make sure you link or put a recognition of the legion in your sig and your off

the legion bitch?
yes....the legion bitch. a surprise rank given..if your the bitch you must work hard and approve your rank as a member. Often..bitches work hard...but get a higher ranking

(N) = Newbie
(V) = Veteran

Regards,
Godofshred
Seven String Legion Founder.

I bottled getting an Agile 7 string at the start of the year because I thought it would be somewhat pointless when I'm still playing through a Line 6 Spider 2. Did I make the right call or would it still have sounded ok even through such a basic amp?

It wouldn't have sounded fantastic, but for practicing playing a 7, I see no problem. I gig through a Cube 60 with 7s. I'll be honest, it's not the best sound, but I can't afford to upgrade, and it does do the job.

It would have sounded like any other guitar through a spider but know this: it's never the wrong time to get a 7 string

I feel I should upgrade my amp first though, which is going to be hard given how I don't think I could GIVE away my current gear!
How are the new Agiles? Still highly rated?

Generally, yes, everyone who has one still thinks they're brilliant, especially now they've worked the production and QC issues out of the newest models.

Bringing discussion over about the PRS SE 7, I feel it could either be a nice guitar, or a terrible one. The price tag I can't even speculate on, but it'd probably be pretty high for a Korean made guitar.
I think they'd actually have a 25.5" scale as they did with the SE Torrero. PRS are becoming much more acquainted with different scale sizes lately, even on their SE line (Torrero - 25.5", Mike Mushok Baritone - 28").
I think the PRS crowd could really jump on sevenstring models. I'm a part of that crowd, and I'd definitely be all over one.
In other news, I played an RGA7 for the first time the other day. I didn't have enough time to try it with an amp, but I wasn't too much a fan of the neck. It felt unfinished, not anything like any Ibanez 7 I've played. I don't know if I'd jump on one, even with a pup swap. I guess I'm very old school with how I choose guitars - if it doesn't play well without an amp, I don't even plug it in.
