Either quit your band, persuade them to use 6's, tune your guitar down or buy a 7

i might buy the loomis sig without playing it... not sure though.

also its my idea to use 7's and the other thing is would a guitar be safe in a HSC overseas ( with all other packaging OFC)

I'd go for the RG7321 or a Shecter BlackJack C7. They'll be longer than you've been used to (26.5 scale necks instead of 25.5) but they'll have the same necks as the guitars you own already. The BlackJack's set neck means it'll have really good tone and easy accessibility high up.
Since they have fixed bridges, changing strings won't be a nightmare, as it'll be with a Floyd. If you need a Floyd though, then yeah, get a S7321, RG1527, or that Jeff Loomis.

Being in bristol the only good music stores are Sound control (pricey as hell) Rikkaxxe (Limited stock) and drum bank guitar (Limited stock again) so there not much choice sadly. And ordering in guitars from sound control takes the piss.

TRY a friends 7, see how he likes 7 strings, then order one of his own. Maybe buy the same one, one of his friends has.

You know you don't have to get one right?

Just tune yours down, make sure they are tuned the same. Add some variety to your music.

7strings take about 20 minutes to get used to when you just sit down and play one. don't be afraid to buy one! i wouldn't go for the gusto if in the end you decide you don't like them, an ibanez RG321 or a schecter omen 7 are good affordable 7 strings to get into the testing grounds.. if you decide you REALLY like em, you could always sell it for a higher end one since it sounds like there's a shortage of 7's in your area.

and why is your band gettign into 7's anyway? are they going to use all that range or just so they can tune to B? if its so they can tune low, pick up a pack of strings gauged 13-56 and drop it to be. or a# whatever

So your band mates are getting into 7's, don't own one, live near you, so they haven't played on either? What?
