Hey guys,

First off, Merry Christmas to all

Well, i've been browsing through the local Perth music shops and have found Billy Hyde (Aussie chain music store), are having a sale tomorrow (Boxing Day).

I've got about $1500 AUSTRALIAN to bust out towards a new 7 guitar. I listen to Meshuggah, Lamb of God, Dream Theater, Trivium, Steve Vai, Metallica, etc.

I'm currently running a squier fat strat through a peavey vypyr 75.

I'm looking for a 7 string guitar with 24 frets, with humbuckers.

I've got 2 guitars on my list atm.

its definitely ballsy as hell for metal, that's just about all i play. and the neck is real easy to adjust to on the low end, but it gets a little bit thick towards the higher frets. other than that though, its incredibly easy to play

Is the neck, neck heavy when you play standing bro? Also, how much does all that mahogany weigh ?

EDIT
How do JB/59's sound through a Peavey Vypyr?
