Lower notes while keeping the higher notes and a more consistent tuning(BEADGbe is alot less confusing than CGDAEG or BEDGbe or somesuch)

3 octave runs in 1 position. heres a quote from another site i visit and they interviewed Rusty Cooley.

Rusty Cooley: ... For the most part extended range says it all. You can cover more octaves with minimal fretboard movement. For example on a six string guitar to do a three octave run say in G major you have to go from the six string third fret all the way to the first string fifteenth fret. On a seven string you can do it from the seventh string eighth fret staying in one position then when you get to the first string you move your pinky a half step to hit the third octave, so basically a position and a half step verses three to fifteen.

The 3 octave run in one position is something I never thought I would use, but now use it regularly. It gives you that much more versatility without changing positions drastically. Also, it can add some beef to 1st position chords for some added chug.

One added bonus, my hands feel huge when I grab a 6 string after playing/practicing on my 7 for a while.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

more strings means more of a sonic range. Gives you something different.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
