So I have recently been getting more and more into metal music lately. I've been playing guitar for about a year and a half and I have a Fender Strat and a Gibson Les Paul. It's extremely irritating tuning to B and such so I thought, 'Hmm how bout a 7 string?'. I'm not looking for anything expensive or amazing. Just fine would suit me well. So I decided to ask whether I should get a Dean Vendetta 7-String for $179.99 or save up another 100 - 200 bucks.

Here's a link to Amazon:

Post any suggestions.

I've heard bad things about low end deans, so I'd say save the extra 100-200 dollars and buy a nicer guitar. Also look used, you'll get a nicer guitar for less money.

i've never played their 7 strings, but if they're anything like their 6 string guitars (i've only played four les paul coppies, and one schecter looking one), then they'll be some of the best guitars for the money. they just put so much bang for the buck in what they do.

I agree with this. Tenor (standard) guitars don't have the proper fret spacing for the low B string.
92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you are part of the 8% who still listen to real music, copy and paste this

GENERATION 10: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.

which is why 7 strings are generally 27.5 inch scale... a standard baritone is 28 inch scale if i remember correctly. the difference is too minimal to justify your argument. the only thing i would say is try both. some find an extra string awkward.
