Im looking for a seven string, for those lowww tunings i love oh so much.
I play mainly metal. Anything from metallica to canninbal corpse to suicide silence and job for a cowboy. Im not really picky, but i want 24 frets, with a 25 1/2 scale. Good pickups (EMG, Blackouts, Dimarzio 7 strings) are always welcome. Budget isnt really an issue, as i am willing to save, but id rather it not be above a grand.
Floyd, or hardtail, doesnt matter either way.
Any suggestions?

I've said this before, I wouldn't touch a schecter with a ten foot pole. I don't care how glossy that 8 string of theirs is I would get a galaxy black RG 2228 by Ibanez, and if I was desperate for something unique I'd go bang on the custom shops door.

I have a Prestige 6 that is similar to this one, the body is carved a bit different but I've been looking into getting one of these

Looking for something unique get a model like this http://cgi.ebay.com/IBANEZ-XPT707FXGCM-GREY-CHAMELEON-7-STRING-NOS-NEW_W0QQitemZ270370946655QQcmdZViewItemQQptZGuitar?hash=item3ef35d3e5f&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1205|293%3A1|294%3A50

Get something Mahogany body wise, the basswood is tolerable at best. I've tried an RG 7321, for it's price and the fact it was made in Korea it was a pretty damn good guitar. Since budget's not an issue though look for something really unique and tricked out that's MIJ!


EDIT: I'll let you steal my idea, of course I'm sure others have thought of this and it was this forum that I first saw this guitar

Get one of those suckers through the Ibanez Custom shop, good god... That's a goal to achieve in itself!
