Hello! I'm going to trade my Charvel for one of the three guitars listed below (sorry for russian language there)

FENDER HEARTFIELD TALON I '91 I think its ugly
or
ESP TRADITIONAL STRATOCASTER '84
or
IBANEZ RG7620 '99

As to the genre, I try to play everything from blues (SRV, Robert Johnson) to bands like Dream Theater, Celtic Frost etc. (30% clean stuff, 40% overdriven, 30% SUPER HEAVY METAL)

Help!

P.S.: Their prices are identical, but which guitar is considered more valuable than others?

I say get the Ibanez. Dream Theater uses 7 strings on some of their songs.
Gear:
Shecter Omen 6 with Seymour Duncan SH-6
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Fender Frontman 25r (crappy)
MXR CAE WAH
Digitech HardWire TL-2 Metal Distortion (Makes the amp sound not shitty)

Is it easy to use 6-string techniques on 7-string guitar?

It's the same thing. If your in standard with a 7 string, It's b standard with a high e or or standard with a low b

I've never really had a problem switching from a 6 to a 7. The extra string is confusing for maybe 20 minutes. Nothing so drastic it's impossible to switch because of.

Definitely wait for other people opinions though to see what they have to say

If you actually know what you're doing on a 6 string adding an extra string doesn't complicate anything at all.

Get the 7 string.

Go for the 7 man. That one is in absolutely amazing condition. I'm with the other guys. For a few minute I was like wtf, but it's normal now. It's alot more versatile than a 6. It's not like you have to use the 7th string all the time either. I'd say get the 7, if you don't like it, you could probably sell it for more than you got it for anyway. (How much is your Charvel worth?)

I bought my Charvel new for 1000 USD (yeah I know you cen get it for 700 or less in the USA, but in russia 1000 bucks for a new US-made guitar is nothing)

28000 RUR = 1000 USD now
When I bought my Charvel, 1000 USD was 30000 RUR

PS : just found out that UG was founded by a russian student lol!!!
