Thing is with the bad economy gonig on here I will most likely not be able to get a Oni Custom Guitar, but I'm still gonna see if thing get better on that and maybe I'll get it... depends on if I can get a good job this summer and gather alot of money. But hey, I am gonna explore all possibilities so...:


I've heard of a few companies that make 7-string lefties but I'm still trying to find more, so I can see what my options are.

I've heard of these so far:
ESP
Ibanez (1 Guitar I think... )
Schecter
Agile (RondoMusic)


I'm looking for something around $800-$1400 USD.

I would prefer a floyd rose tremolo but it isn't really a must if it is a good guitar and stays well in tune. But I would prefer it.
I like Ebony fretboards, I've not ever tried Maple so I still need to check it out how it feels and such. But yeah, can you guys help me finding new companies making good lefty 7+ string guitars.

Also I play alot of Symphonic, Prog, Power, Heavy Metal and also like to use clean parts in between.

Any suggestions for what guitars I should look at?

I think you've covered most of the companies that make guitars to those specs.

The Schecters' are awesome... no 8-string plusses though...

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

I have a Schecter C-7 Hellraiser and love it to bits. The tone is lovely (probably due to the EMG 707-TWs on it) and sounds great clean and distorted. It has a slightly longer scale length than most guitars, 25.5" i believe, but that really helps when playing up high; much less cramped. Mine is a hard tail, so i dont know what the trem would be like, but either way, i think its a brilliant guitar, much better than any ibanez or esp or anything ive ever played tbh. I play a lot of Dream Theater, Symphony X and Nevermore type stuff, just in case you were wondering. Hope this helps

Cool, although the rosewood fretboard is kinda keeping me away from that guitar. I believe it is the only thing I worry about. If there is a way to keep the fretboard from going all dry and uncomfortble to play, my worries are gone. I want the fretboard to be smooth and comfortble to play...

Oh, yeah, this guitar is solid as a tank right? I need something that will last me well and not go all AWOL on me.
