My Hellraiser isn't neck heavy at all. Actually it's quite the opposite. So not all, no

Try using a leather strap.

Mwoit - It sounds super futuristic. Like, that's how tone and metal music will be in 2020!

Not all 7 strings are neck heavy, but the Xiphos range in general including the 6-stringers are known to be heavy neck divers.

Mmmh, I have tried a Xiphos before and liked the feel of the neck... I don't remember if the neck felt really heavy though since the action was very, very high, but anyways, not all 7 strings are neck heavy, don't worry 'bout that.

Also, MWOIT!! great song you uploaded there.

I wish I could upload some of my work, but I have no drums, no bass, no drummer, no bassist... aw shit... I would record guitar and put GP drums and bass, but it would sound real shitty. Any tips guys?

It seems to be an issue with the strap button locations on that guitar: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f18/i...blem-88957.html

7420s are not worth anywhere near that much, even in mint condition. I got mine for £100 from the bay, used. (that was like $450 dollars at the time)

Oo

Ok then, I WON'T buy that. Didn't what they are worth. Those guys didn't seem alright anyways. Many bad critics.
