Round one, FIGHT!

Anyways, here we go.
Dean RC7

+ Insane upper fret access
+ Huge frets
+ Kickass decal and inlays
+ Awesome neck joint
+ Rusty Cooley plays it
- EMGs -- I'm not real big on active pickups. I don't like their tone.
- Made by Dean, who I'm not a big fan of.
- HH configuration, not as good as HSH
- No tone knobs

Vigier Excalibur 7 String

+ Vigier gives insane customer service
+ Zero fret
+ Carbon strip instead of truss rod
+ 2 piece body
+ Awesome quality control
+ Shawn Lane and Bumblefoot play Vigiers, Buckethead plays a Vigier bass.
+ It's rather obscure, good for the coolness factor
+ HSH Dimarzio pickups
- Less upper fret access
- Colors and inlays are meh

EDIT: Changed Vigier link to the actual Vigier Excalibur 7 String page.

Is that even a question? Vigier, by far.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

they're both cool guitars, but completely different. what are you going for? the vigier will be useless for most music.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

**** that i think that rc7 is ****ing sweet. i'm not even a dean fan. you talk 7's you're speaking my language.

best ones out there are the ibanez uv777 (but it's overpriced by far), the rg1527, schecter c7fr (the new jeff loomis sig), c7 hellraiser, and the carvin dc727/747, in no particular order. but i'm definately gonna have to get my hands on both that rc7 and the vigier.

Isn't the Vigier also twice as much to buy? It should be better (and it is).
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

Aw man I don't like when people don't read. It has a non locking tremolo meaning a strat kind of trem.

VIGIER> dean

Vigier actually has a Floyd Rose that's modified to pivot on ball bearings instead of knives thus increasing tuning stability and the parts virtually will NEVER wear out. Vigier for the win. I've played many Deans and Ibanez I actually own an Ibanez at the moment and Vigier will be my next buy. Shawn Lane Master Signature to be exact. They can do ANYTHING. Kickass stock pickups, tremolo, locking tuners, excellent quality, etc. The best part about Vigier is the 10/90 neck which is a carbon strip instead of a truss rod which ALSO increases tuning stability. ALSO because of this carbon strip the neck is perfectly straight and no tuning or gauge of string affects it's playability not to mention Vigier is very well known for having QUITE LITERALLY the LOWEST action a guitar could possibly have without fret buzz which btw they do the courtesy of doing for any buyer (full professional setup by trained luthiers). Dean's are an average shred guitar. Vigier is a guitar with endless possibilities. For a musician such as myself with small hands playing legato is extremely difficult with this guitar it makes playing IN GENERAL easier. The only thing you may not like is the flat neck. It's COMPLETELY flat which also contributes to the ability for such low action but if you can get used to it it's hands down the most innovative guitar available. I'd highly recommend buying one before they go big(GER). Shawn Lane Master Signatures run about $2,990 shipping and all to the US.

No need to revive a 2 year old thread though.

Damn, I hate when that happens. It's when I always want to put in my $.02.

I was going to say the Dean if you shred. Nothing the Vigier offers is remotely near the super cutaway body, ultra thin neck, extra jumbo frets. The Dean is built for speed. Not to mention they're about $2800 as well.

The only reason the dean has a liscensed floyd rose is because it's a low profile trem, which flolyd rose doesnt make for 7 strings. However, the carbon trussrod sounds like a godsend

He basically says that in every guitar related thread, and thinks that Deans are the best guitars ever bar none.
