Cool story brah?

But seriously?

7 string les paul?

I think it's a fake to be honest, but I'm not sure.

Epiphone made some 7 string Les Pauls for a short while in the 90's I think. I've never played any myself, so I don't know much about them.

Seriously, keep that stuff out of EG. And it isn't funny in the first place.

It might be. Epiphone does make limited runs of models every once in a while. I don't know much about them unfortunately.

I thought he was getting a 7 String Explorer? Either way it should be sweet.

And is that guitar pretty much just an LP Gothic, with the extra string? It looks..weird.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

They're real. They're just hard to come by is all. They just weren't around for a long time. You might be able to find a couple on ebay or something like that. I would recommend Ibanez for 7 strings, though.
#15
Yeah Epi made them but you need to try it out first. I played one at a small shop in NH not too long ago and the neck was like playing a tree trunk. I have to admit I don't really play 7 string and I am comparing it to my Schecter Avenger that has a nice neck.

Fuck off, i don't wanna here this pit shit in the real forums.

Damn, I clicked hoping i would see an LP standard color scheme. Am I the only one that thinks if they made a 7-String Cherry Sunburst LP with a Flamed top it would be one of the sexiest sevens ever?

this is absolutely, 100% correct.

I've seen quite alot of epi 7 strings on ebay not the exact same colour like, I think some where sunburst... but yeah they don't seem to go for too much from what I can remember. I'd want to try it out first like.
(and yes they looked pretty damn real)

yeah hes already got that...


but he also said he was 'working on a les paul sig' on twitter to one of the guys in the trivium thread

but i doubt that means his own signature guitar, I'm guessing it means a 7

i guess standards are pretty low for gibson sigs these days, making him a 7 string explorer is one thing but giving him a sig is stupid, considering that he hasnt really hit a considerable milestone in his career.

But back on topic, i played a second hand one and it was lovely for a 7 string, thick neck and the shape holds it back abit higher up on the neck, but with a proper set up it would have been really nice

yeah....i said i don't know whether that means he's getting his own sig, and that i assume it just means a custom les paul.

but i do completely agree, he shouldn't be getting a Gibson signature guitar yet
