I'm thinking about getting this really nice 7 string Agile, I can either get the 27" or the 25.5" but I don't have any experience with 27" guitars, help me out!
The baritone scale keeps really nice tension on the strings (I use 10-59 d'addario set, standard tuning), but it makes some stretches pretty hard..
ahh I see, I was thinking that I could use the super light 8 string set without using the high E so that I could tune down to drop G.
Obviously, if you have any way to play a 27" before ordering, that'd be optimal to see how you like it. Most people I know use the 25.5" and that's generally safer if you've never played the larger scale.
I'd go for the 27" for sure, I can't imagine trying to play my 7 string as a 25.5" scale, especially when it's tuned to like Drop F# sometimes.
