i am currently debating which type of 7 string guitar i should buy. lookin for something with a standard strat shape and kick ass tone. other nice features would be a markless fret board or a fixed bridge. anyone got any good suggestions?

Exactly, what is your budget, and what style of music do you intend to play with it?

I'd say if you're wanting the strat shape, and a ticker neck, Schecter, but if you want a thin neck Ibanez. What's your budget? Then we can start giving you model names to check out.

Oh man, if You play Unearth Metalcore type stuff, the S7320 is the ideal choice, they use S-series 7's for all of their stuff (Buz does play some UV's and customs though) but they use S series as their primary guitar.

Ibanez and schecter make amazing 7 strings. I prefer Schecter's because i like the feel of them better.

From ibanez i would look into the S620EXQM, UV777, S7320 or the RG 1570 in 7 string.

As from Schecter theres the Blackjack ATX, Hellraiser, 007.

If you are playing Unearth type stuff definitely go for the Ibanez S7320.

Ken and Buz use EMG 707 humbuckers if you wanna swap the pu's to get closer to their tone.

you could always get the Ibanez 1527, or whatever guitar Chris Broderick uses.
