Okey, as it is I mostly use my ESP Horizon FR-II guitar and my Spider Valve212 Tube Amp. I also have a Tanglewood acoustic and a Starter Strat-looking "Encore" Electric guitar which I don't use as much now.

Okey, so I am thinking about 7-string or 8-string guitars for a lefty

I noticed a few guitars at Schecter. I don't know a thing about these guitars they make so I dunno if they are good or not.

I also noticed there is a ESP Horizon NT-7, a seven string horizon ESP.


Now I dunno where to look for these kind of guitars... What I would be really happy with is an guitar with neck-thru body and a Floyd rose system and Ebony fretboard would be fantastic. So can you guys suggest me some 7-string or 8-string guitars like that and are avavible for lefty guitar palyers?

Schecter make lefty versions of almost all their models, so definitely check them out. I own one and I like it a lot.

Schecter makes a hellraise 7 string, though I know it does not have a ebony fret board, and I'm not sure if the 7 string comes with a floyd. Secondly Schecter has a jeff loomis sig edition which is a 7 string, floyd rose but it has a maple fret board.

Lastly I don't know if I would spend 400 bucks on an Agile

As for ESP I have several and love them, though it would be tough to find a lefty unless you wanna buy standard series for about 1750

you'll almost certainly need to get it on the net... most shops dont stock that many lefty guitars, let alone lefty 7 and/or 8 string guitars.. but you could always go hendrix style? a freind of a freind apparently did that with his ibanez S7320

All the suggestion looks good. I looked a few time at the Hellraiser C-7 FR (Seems they have a Floyd Rose). The only thing that discourages me about it, is the fact I have never tried a schecter (as there is no dealer for them in my country ) and the fretboard, I am not sure about that fretboard... Anyone know if it is possible to have them make one with a Ebony fretboard?
The fretboard it already has looks like the fretboard on my first electric which isn't as good as the Ebony on my ESP Horizon.

I personally haven't tried Maple fretboards... would anyone say the better or worse than Ebony? (I do notice some of the shredders that influence me use Maple... Like Jeff Loomis and Michael Romeo).


I have nothing against ESP Standards... I am more against going for a LTD guitar. I personally love the ESP Horizon FR-II. Any suggestions on ESPs is good.


Also, are these Agiles any good? I haven't heard of them before.

What country are you in? Because for Agiles you'll have to pay the import taxes and you can not try them out because rondo music is the only place to get them. Also about the fret board, no type of wood is better than the other, you can get high quality rosewood, ebony, or maple, or low quality of each of those woods. So don't just base a decision off the fret board on your first guitar.

Okay, since you mention about the wood... I guess I gotta go check that Schecter guitars out better...

It's kinda bad not being able to try out guitars... I mean, I tried the ESP Horizon out before I ordered a lefty and I tried a right handed version of it.

One question about Agile and Schecters, do you know if they are willing to build a guitar based on a previous concept they have and edit some things in it?

What about playin a right hand guitar, you guys get finger strength advantage.

anyways on topic schecter does make lefty guitars


Getting a right handed guitar would be a serious waste of money for me... I have a very, very expensive lefty and I have been palying as a lefty for 3 years.


But since we talk custom shops... any good custom guitar shops that aren't to expensive but still really good?
ESP is way to expensive
