That long scale SG has an elongated body to help with the neck dive.

You know what would be really sweet? Having a beautiful bird inlaid around the first fret, taking a majestic dump with airborne droppings around the 5th, 7th, 9th frets and so on, with a graceful impact around the 22nd-24th.

Huh, didn't notice, I guess that puts it back in to normal SG territory

so that would make the whole guitar like 6 ft long then? it does look pretty sexy in white though, and damn that's a thin body. pretty much at this point, if I get anything with any sort of an extended scale, it might as well have at least 7 strings.

+1 to the 7 string deal. I'm so comfortable with it now. It's like "Why not?" Especially when you consider that there are so many now.

...and there will only be more and more 7 and 8 strings.

I haven't tried anything beyond 26.5...

Looks about normal SG size to me, at least from the pics... Not sure I agree about the keeping to 7s for a longer scale though, there's one song on the album that I think would be better played on a longer scale 6 string. In fact I've been looking about for one a little and can't seem to find any, and that made me sad.

It should be pointed out that I'm neither of the people in the video

heya fellas, gots a newb ass string question for yall. strung up a 25.5" guitar with ernie ball 12-56s for drop B. the damned 3rd string is a 24p and feels and sounds odd. ive tried going with a 28w and it was too tight. does anyone else have this problem and have you found a solution? im thinking maybe a 22p or 22w/24w?

Sounds like a 24w would be about right I think, it kind of depends what feels odd about the 24p; if the tension is good but it's something else then 24w is definitely the way to go.

its hard to explain, it feels like it sounds bad because its too tight. the 1st and 2nd strings sound nice and lively and musical, and this one is kind of dull. almost honkey sounding, if that makes any sense ive always wondered if a wound of the same gauge is supposed to have the same tension? guess ill just have to start experimenting.

sometimes I wonder if string manufacturers actually test their gauges before they sell their strings. take the GHS 11-70 set. 11-14-18-36-52-70. maybe im just really odd in my preferences, but theres no way that set of 6 would ever feel good to me. if im tuned to where 4-6 feel great, 1-3 are gonna be slack. if 1-3 were good, 4-6 would be stupid tight. stick a 26 in there and you have a great 7 set, but as is, I think its terrible

That...just.... Well, I suppose someone has a good use for it.

I'm still trying to build a good set for my AW-7. Probably gonna go back down on the gauges. Thicker isn't always better.

that's true. I plan on keeping my warmoth 7 strung up with something like 10-60 at the heaviest. and once that happens, my agile will likely be strung up with like 13-80 and tuned F-Bb I ordered a ferrule for the warmoth because one magically fell out and disappeared right before it got sent back to me. neck is attached. also ordered a barrel jack, so when that shizz gets here, the guitar will actually be complete and playable

Me and my Loomis reporting in for duty

Got to love the versatility of the extra string

I have a relevant question (that probably gets asked a lot)... Right now the guitar is tuned at drop G# with a 60. It's kinda buzzy acoustically but not when plugged in. What troubles me is that when I fret a note especially at the first frets, if I fret hard enough the note goes sharp. If I string it with even higher gauge will that trouble be solved?
#13537
yep, should solve that problem. I've been using a 74 for drop G on a guitar with a 27" scale, which is only 1/2" longer than your loomis, and that feels pretty good to me. id say try a 68-70? depends on exactly how tight you prefer your strings. may just have to experiment a bit too.

That's the case anyway, especially with jumbo frets. Bigger strings will help but really you shouldn't be fretting hard enough for that to happen anyway

Using a 70 for Drop G on my 25.5". It's kind of a setup nightmare with this particular guitar. It's hell trying to get that string balanced out with the rest of the guitar and having it be playable on every string and fret. I'm considering going back down on the gauges and just sticking with ADGCFAD. I really like D standard tuning. I'll save anything lower for longer scales on future guitars.

Having said that, it's preference. Experiment around and find the strings that do what you need. Experimenting can be fun. You really don't know what you'll like till you try it.

Thanks guys! Seems like I ll have to experiment..

What worries me though is if higher gauges will cause trouble with the floyd. Will a 74 even fit?!?!?

Right now I like the tension I am getting on every string but the 7th. It could get a bit tighter for my tastes. I m getting the sharp problem right now cause of how slack it is. It's just easy to press a bit more right now.
#13541
Hey there guys
It seems that the Ibanez RGD7421 wasn't available and the store was just showing it in the online store for some reason. But, I have found 2 other 7 strings that I am quite interested in purchasing. There's a Jackson JS32-7Q and the Ibanez RGIR27E. After doing some research, I think the Ibanez is much better, but I was just wondering if it's worth the price difference. It's around 19,000 rupees more (around 305 dollars). Does that price difference just go into the EMG pickups and the Edge 2 tremolo system, or is it much better quality wise as well? If anyone could help me here it'd be extremely appreciated

Thanks in advance
#13542
I'd take the RGIR27, they're pretty good guitars and about $305 is a pretty good price by my reckoning.

Oh, sorry, my post seems to have caused a bit of confusion. The RGIR27E is $305 more than the Jackson. The RGIR27E (the price) is around $800 and the Jackson is around $500. But yeah, I decided to go with the Ibanez. Firstly, since the store's selling it for the same price as it is in the US, while the Jackson is $100 more than in the US (it's around $399 there, and they're selling it for around $500). Secondly, because it seems a lot better.

Ah, my derp, didn't read that word apparently

Personally still think the RG is a better choice anyway but then I'm not a massive fan of Jacksons; the ones I've played haven't felt right to me.

Hey guys, it's been a long time since I posted in here. How are we all doing?

I've been having a serious think lately and I'm thinking about selling off some of my stuff. Namely, my Carvin and my Blackstar head. I'm not 100% yet, but I'm thinking if I do sell them, I'd like them to go to a good home, maybe someone from in here would be interested in them?

I sold it a while ago but it was solid man.


The specs are unbeatable for the money:

Earvana compensated nut
REAL hipshot bridge, no cheap stuff like on Agiles
Brand name pickups (i would replace the blackouts)
Locking tuners
etc...


The only thing I would do is satin-ize the neck with some sandpaper and also switch out pickups. I cant really think of an 8 i would rather own.

Im still trying to find a C7 Hellraiser FR

#13557
Hey guys, I'm about to get my second 7 string and needed a few opinions before I get my money together and make the purchase. My options that I've found in my price range are a Schecter Hellraiser C7, an LTD Ec 407 and a Schecter Damien Platinum series. I've played all of them and they feel pretty similar and sound good, I just need to know if any of them have negatives down the line that I should know about. Thanks fellas!
#13559
only negatives really would be a low resale value. I personally don't like the Damien series from schecter. played a few hellraisers but never owned one. they seem to be on par with LTDs and will have a slightly thicker neck than that EC. that schecter has a scale 1" longer than the EC which may or may not make a difference if you are planning to tune down lower, and it also includes coil splittable EMGs.
