Why not save up just a tad more and get the Ibanez RG7321.

It might take a little while longer to get it, but you'll thank yourself later. The RG7321 will last you for ages and will most certainly blow both guitars you mentioned out of the water.

both guitars are bad, I would get a schetcher, they are pretty cheap, and I like there sound and playability more then either of the other 2. But if you REALLY must have a 7 string get the dean..

Also maybe you should just save up, and in the mean time get some heavier strings on a 6 string, and tune it down to B.

err i need to go further than b i mean like A but schecters are pretty affordable

Besides, a tuned down six string just doesn't have the same feel, options or range a seven string has.

Also, I believe Washburn have a cheap seven string model, which is apparently quite nice.

Washburns don't suck, in fact when it comes to six stringers they have guitars like the Nuno Bettencourt signatures and the X 50 pro.


Just do as much research as you can, also I wouldn't be surprised if Agile has a seven string.

Really, that's going to be a problem with many seven strings.

Most stores don't stock them because the demand is too low and, like with regular guitars, the ones that are worth it, are more expensive, especially in the lower price range.

Also, most companies have a starting price when it comes to their seven string models.

I undestand you're GAS'ing for a seven string right now, but saving up those few quid more will turn out to be a really good decision.

It's better to save up a little more, than it is to buy a piece of crap now and replacing or selling it in the near future.

It is possible to write new material on a six string; many artist have been doing it for years.

Also, a seven string might give you a creative boost, but getting one just because it may inspire you isn't a good idea. Yes, they're great for getting new ideas, but it's not just the guitar.

For now, I suggest just using your six strings, because there's nothing as annoying as a low quality, bad sounding, guitar.

The trick is to take those 50 songs, and combine the riffs into about 15-25 much stronger songs.

By not stringing a riff out for a few minutes, but using it only a few times during a song, you'll get much stronger material.

Also, like mentioned above, a seven string doesn't automatically mean cool new songs.

yes, you can put any humbuckers designed for 7 strings in any guitar with 7 string humbuckers already installed.. But really, if you can only write two songs on a six string, how is a 7 going to help? Read up some theory and give yourself a crash course in composition. Or learn new techniques. Learning one relatively simple new technique can give more inspiration than a new guitar, and when you do the sums, its a bit cheaper as well.
