It's tuned B E A D G b e.

The low B adds an additional fourth below the low E. You could also string it E A D G b e a, which just adds an additional fourth above the high e.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

so what is you guys's opinion on them are they a waste of money or not, are they just more confusing, because it seems to me having an extra string gives it more versatility, what do you think?

i think it has more versatility, and eliminates droptuning for the most part. my same view for five string bass.
#7
does it elminate drop tuning though because now when you play strings if you used the lowest string, now you basically have to skip over the original 6th bottom e string which would make it more difficult to play right?

Yeah you cant palm mute like metallica style easily. Plus i think theyre not useful to me since most songs i play dont use 7 except korn but playing their songs are way too easy and boring. But you can get use to it though, and i heard after u do get use to it, the 6 strings will be like toys to you....

i use 7 strings alot in jazz and just rock, it does add a whole new octave that adds wonders to solos and chords, its great for jazz im not much of a metal head anymore but unearth and nevermore seem to be doing a good job with them

It's something that you have to get used to, but once you get used to it, you will never want a 6 string anymore/
