If I were to get a 7-string...

I'm not quite sure what I should get. I've found three that I like: a Schecter C-7 Custom (of course), an ESP LTD H-1000FR and one of the new Jackson SLAT 7s. I like all of these options, but they're a little too ordinary-looking for me. What I'd really like is something that has everything these other guitars have, in some other shape, preferably a V, for less than $1000. Any ideas?

Schecter Loomis JLV-7. slightly over $1000 but it fulfills your requirements. if you liked the C7, the workings of this guitar aren't much different. you can get it with or without a floyd rose, too.

Priced at about $900



If that's more your style... that's $500

Used Ibanez 7621/0 depending on your preference for fixed/floyd bridge.

Much better quality than those guitars you listed.

You could also go Carvin: http://www.carvinguitars.com/customshop/sevenstring.php

Yes, I know, not a very exciting body shape. However, you get Carvin quality and they're customizable (within a certain range of options). It wouldn't just be your Carvin 7, it would be YOUR Carvin 7.

They're both sweet guitars! (@Danny, Wesbanez) Why would you want a 7? What bands do you play?

Maybe he just wants a 7 to expand is range? It's not a matter of what bands he plays :P

Thank you jeleopard for stating the obvious for those who might not know. Anyway, I've noticed a few suggestions that fit my criteria, but I do need to say 2 things: 1) I'd rather not have a signature model, and 2) a Floyd Rose us REQUIRED. Keep the ideas coming!

The Schecter I recommended does also come with a Floyd. http://www.schecterguitars.com/Prod...al-Edition.aspx

But really dude, I'd get a Carvin. They're amazing. They're more like Fender Strats than superstrats, but hey...

I have the Jackson and won't recommend that tremolo. The guitar is neck through and sounds really sweet. Looks like Ibanez Xyphos might be a way to go.

I actually went to the Carvin website and customized a DC727 that came to be around $1700. I can get everything I put on it for much cheaper than that. And jeleopard, I've seen the Schecter you've suggested before, and the only reason I haven't gotten that over everything else is because I despise Blackouts.

I think the Jackson's winning me over, but even still, keep the suggestions coming!

I can't say I am impressed with Carvin, went to their company store in California (I think it was Sacramento) and played all the guitar models they had on there and the craftmanship wasn't really that good and their pickups were just not doing it for me. I decided not go get one at that point and went with Jackson.

they are way more than 1 thousand bucks, but if you save for one, you wont regret it....

But realisticly, Carvin guitars are very nice
