Should i get this 7 string guitar for my first elctric guitar?
I found someone who wants to sell it at a low price and I heard that the Omen-6 is a very good guitar for a beginner but is it easy for a beginner to handle the extra string in the omen-7?

It's very hard to find the exact model of a guitar in a guitar store where i live in.. so I can't find the omen-6 in a reasonable price here.

Iv'e been playing a classical guitar for 6 months so maybe the wide neck of a 7 string would'nt be hard to get used to. Also I listen to bands like Meshuggah and Dream Theater that use 7 strings so the seventh string would be usefull to me.

What do you say?

If you are already acquainted with guitar, I think it'd be alright.

if you're really sure you need the 7th string then sure why not. thought the omen 6 is a good ax aswell, and itd probably be easier for a beginner.. but as i said why not.

If you are new to guitar I say go with the Omen 6, its a great guitar!

Maybe i'll just remove the seventh string and make it a six string guitar and when i'll feel more comfortable with the guitar i'll add the seventh string. would it be any different than an Omen-6? Would the neck be just as fast as the Omen-6? (without putting my thumb over the neck of course..)

Nah, you fuck up the intonation, the neck straightness, everything. If you have truely been studieing classical guitar (not just playing, I mean learning the technique, pieces, etc) then the seventh string with only offer more range of notes and voicing options.

Actually, RG7321's neck is at the width of a standard classical so maybe for someone who is used to a classical guitar it would'nt seem too fat. I cant find whats the width of the omen-7 neck though...

Can someone please explain how to measure a neck scale and what exactly does it's scale means? The scale of an rg321 (6-string) neck is 25.5" and the scale of an rg7321 (7-string) is the same so i'm confused...

Scale is the distance between the nut and the saddles.

id say get a 7 string really cool things you can do with them if you learn your scales not a big fan of the omens personally but i hate basswood, but for a begginer guitar itll be fine
