I have been torn about what kind of guitar I would like to get.
Actually, I don't have a very good idea of what I want at all other than something that will last me a long while and play music that I want it to.

I was just thinking, what if I got a 7 stringer?
I can't think of any bands that I listen to that use a 7 string guitar. Aside from the john petrucci solo album now that I think about it.

I had tossed the idea of getting one around inmy head but I think it would be like if I got a floyd. I would have it but I would only use it once every month or so.

So I suppose my question is should I just get a good guitar that has the 6 strings I would normailly use or should I try for something new?
What is the point of having a 7th string anyway?

I think I'll look through the 7 string legion thread.
totally posted this in the wrong section. Can a mod move this to electric guitar?
Go to a store and play every guitar that catches your eye. That is the fastest and most effective way to find out what you do and don't like in a guitar.
Spin 'round carousel when your horse isn't screwed in.
