Hey guys, i was looking at guitars kinda planning out what im going to buy. I think after i get my new pc, im going to buy a 7 string. I had kinda planned out what i wanted to buy (Ibanez RGD7421) but then i got serious GAS for a white 7 string after a long time of watching Ola Englund playing his white solar 6 + 7. Are there any white 7 strings for under £500, used or new with a scale length larger than 25.5"? I think id rather have the longer scale since id be in drop g# alot and maybe lower. Thanks

Schecter makes some guitars answering to that description, definitely check them out although they may end up being a little out of your price range. I can't think of anything else though.

I know the Agile Hornet 7 comes in white, and the same with the Ghost (that's what they call the Explorer shape, right?) but not sure about their more 'normal' shapes - I wouldn't be surprised if they do too, though. That's probably as close as you'll get to a great guitar for that price, at least fitting what you're looking for.

They have matching headstocks, too.
I don't know about you, but for me a white guitar just looks like crap if the headstock's black.

I believe this is the guitar you're referring to? £650, so I think it's a bit steep considering that a higher quality MIJ used Ibanez (for example) will go for under that, but not everyone likes Ibanez so it's worth looking into and if you get along with Jackson guitars it might be a good option for you.

No I mean over here in the UK we get fucked on prices. Not quite as hard as Australia but it's definitely not even.

That exact guitar costs around £750 new over here.
