I just had the thought that i might wanna try out a 7-string for versatility and more playability. Is there like a good cheapie that i should try out next time that im at guitar center. Cheapie=200-500$ (500 might actually be pushing it a bit)

Dont care what company. im open to anything

ibanez RG7321?
i think thats what they are called

they arent too expensive, 5 way pickup selector so theres a wide range of tones there
the pickups arent too great though

Ibanez RG7621 if you want a flat mount
Ibanez RG7620 if you want a guitar with a trem

They both can be found on sites like Ebay for the price you listed.

I honestly can't think of a better quality 7 for that price.

No,they don't.Too many people on this forum associate low price with bad quality.The two Ibanez models I suggested are great guitars,and the 7321 is a solid workhorse 7 string and can be greatly improved with a pickup swap.

I'm amazed at how many people overlooked this.

I got my RG7620 used for $380.

Specs:
Dimarzio New 7 pups, H-H config
Lo-Pro 7 bridge
Wizard-7 neck
5 way switch
1 volume, 1 tone
I believe the tuners are Gotoh
Made in Japan in the Fujigen factory

Don't think you can get much better than that for just under 400 bucks.

However, if you're in it just to try a 7 + you know how to tweak guitars (set-up, re-solder, fret dress, etc.), there are some amazing used 7s out there.

For example, Squier has various 7s (fixed and LFR) that are pretty amazing for what they go for ... $150 to 200+. Played through a Peavey JSX or aHughes & Kettner TriAmp MK II, I can get some brootal tones and djent. Through a Fender Hotrod, amazing cleans and jazz.

As mentioned the RG 7321 (MIK or MII) is a nice Bang for the $$$, specially used.

Then there's the older Schecter C-7 specially if you're more comfortable with beefier neck profiles ala Gibson '50s neck ... not as thick, but thick enough and wider.

Don't forget your local CraigsList if you're in the US.

those deans are actually very nice. They look totally different in person though. They are a dark flat black, you can't see the grain.
