So I'm considering diving into the world of the seven string...

I'm looking for a cheap, but decent 7-string to get me into the world.

I'm looking for a relatively slim neck (damn my short fingers... The rest of me's fine though, honest... I'l prove it!!!) and don't want any kind of floyd/trem. To much of a pain in the arse...

So, any recommendations are greatly appreciated

Either a 7321 or if you can be bothered to wait/look a 2nd hand 7621.

Basically your best bet is to scour ebay for a cheap, used Ibanez. I can't remember the exact model numbers but really as long as it's what you're looking for and it's in decent condition you can't really go wrong.

Failing that, look at the lower end new Ibanez range they're currently doing and look at the low end Schecters. Realistically if you want something cheap your only options in the UK are Ibby and Schecter.

You can usually pick up there japan ones for less then a new 7321 as well if you're patient and scour about ebay. I picked mine up for like a little over 300 quid i think?

I just bought a Schecter Omen seven string. Comes in more colors than black and was only $350.00 USD. I plan on eventually changing PU's but everything on the guitar is really solid.

It's pretty thin. Better than my LP for sure. It's not a wizard neck by any means but it's comfortable.

Nowhere near as big as people sometimes make them out to be. My friend has a couple of Schecter 7s and tbh I like them quite a bit, not quite as much as my Ibanez's but that's just my taste.

Really the only real option is to hunt one down for yourself and see how you like them.

Finding somewhere round here with the Schecter (or any sevens for that matter) is near enough impossible without an hour and a half bus journey
