Ibanez Xiphos XPT700

yeah, exactley, i woudlnt mind a seven string but, im not sure whether its worth paying more for it

Seven strings give you much more versatility, and you can create massive, crazy jazz chords or extremely chunky metal riffs.

I say 7.

[Disclaimer: Those were just two examples, I knwo you can use any guitar for any style]

Get the 707, the XPT700 has an Edge III, which is Ibanez's lowest quality trem.
