Got myself another 7 string finally, decided to splash a little and bought this beauty from a dude in Italy.



















Specs:

Siggery Deimos 7
Hand built in England by Marty Siggery

Body : Ash
Top : Walnut
Neck : 7 piece Bubinga, Wenge and Purpleheart
Fretboard : Ebony
Scale : 25.5" - 27"
Tuning pegs : Gotoh
Bridge : Siggery Custom
Pickups: SD Blackouts AHB1 Phase 2

Pickups and tuners were added by the previous owner. Great job, nice and tidy.

Have had her roughly a week now, and I am in love. I haven't played much to be honest as the previous owner has fitted bass strings... my hands are used to something a little more....floppy (inb4 gay) but the unplugged sound is big, boomy, great attack and really resonant.

Plugged into the Booger 6262, its immense. Really great tight lows, no mud and a pronounced mid range. Treble is lacking clarity but that may be the pickups (will probably replace with BKs) or may just need an a little more tweaking.

Fanned frets take (for me at least) absolutely no getting used to, very easy transition. Quality of the fretwork here probably helps. Excellent all round.

The build quality and attention to detail is superb. Finish all round is natural satin wax, feels very good to the touch but im told is tough enough to withstand a fair amount of abuse (not that she'll be getting any serious abuse, I'm no woman beater).

Headstock is a bit of a Blackmachine rip-off, but really, its a great design (looks a little like a Parker and a BM had a bastard love child) and it looks superb with the body matching walnut veneer.

Comparing it to my old 7621, its thinner and lighter but sound wise, a big improvement. Very happy

Very nice. I remember someone on BassChat had a 5-string Siggery bass, he was a bit of a cunt, but it was a nice bass. Enjoy

I would also like to know this... haha. I've never had enough luck to be able to try out a fanned fret guitar for myself, unfortunately.

Its hard to explain but it feels very natural. Ill get a better idea when I've restrung it and had it setup properly (action is a little high and the neck bow is too severe at the moment).

But yeah, feels good

You get multiple scale lengths on the same guitar. So the low B and E strings are longer than the high E.

The 27" scale length here is basically where baritone guitars start = makes for epic low end.

The idea is that you get different scale lengths across the strings, so for the lower strings you can have higher tension and keep the rhythms tight and the higher strings don't end up with the brittle tone and ease of bending that comes with the shorter scales.

I've also heard people say that it's slightly ergonomically better since the change in angle of the frets follows the naturally changing position of the hand up and down the neck.

Thats its pretty much, all about scale lengths.

Hard to say if its more ergonomic really at this point, hands are still used to standard frets but it feels good, so maybe
