Okay everyone, I have a couple questions that I have had on my mind about my 7 string. I am fresh to the 7 string buzz, and hope that you all can help me out.

1. Will EMG HZ7-A pickups fit in an ESP LTD M-17?

2. Will baritone strings co-exist with a 25.5" scale? If so, where can i get them?

3. What is a good 7 string brand that i can get for less that $1,000 U.s.?

Thanks Guys!
I'm no expert, so don't quote me on anything. That being said:

1. As long as the guitar doesn't have a tremolo, and the pickups aren't spaced for a tremolo, they should fit.

2. The main differences between baritone strings and regular guitar strings are that baritone strings are thicker, and have a longer scale length. I assume you intend to try them on you M-17. If so, ESP uses the same string gauges for seven string guitars and baritone guitars, so they should fit.

3. My answer would be either ESP or Ibanez.

Hope this helps.

baritone strings on a 25.5 will still be flappy as all hell, I would go with a longer scale
