Tommorrow I am going to Guitar center to try out a couple guitars so i have a better idea of what i wanna save up for. I play metal, love emgs, love low tuning(preferably Drop B), distortion, rosewood fretboards, etc.
There are 4 guitars i plan on trying out,

Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser FR
BC Rich Deluxe Jr V
Ibanez S7320

Are there any other guitars i should try out?
I have a budget of 850 and a big fan of Ibanez.

Also dont flame me for liking Drop B or EMGs, ive gotten alot of immaturity from people about my tuning

Edit: Links, vids, soundclips are optional but kickass!

ooh, sorry, forgot about that

I was thinking that maybe a 7-String is a good investment because then i have some low sounds to explore with without awkwardly tuning to Drop B. My strings usually snap when i tune back up to Standard or drop D.

I like the S. Problem is, with the ZR trem I don't think you'll be able to downtune to drop A or something if you wanted to. A 7 is definitely the best way for you to go though, look at the Schecter Hellraiser 7, Demon 7 and Damien 7.

If you want to go Ibanez, (which I strongly recommend) the S7320 is a great guitar. The RG7321 with a pickup change is also pretty damn good for the money. Also, if you can, get a used Japanese made RG.

Tremolo models-

RG7420
RG7620

The fixed bridge models are just the same, but with a 1 at the end instead of a 0.

+1, except for the RG7420, it's the 7 string version of the RG4X0 series...
And the S has the same pickups as the RG7321, it's just that body thickness (and cavities) and type of wood make the guitars sound different.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that... I believe the S is mahogany and the RG is basswood. Also the S only has 22 frets.

Personally, I'd get the 7321. I'm not a big trem person and only 22 frets would annoy me. But thats just me... ask the 7 string legion and maybe PM hmmm_de_hum, I'm pretty sure he has an S7320.

Can you give me some prices on the guitars you recommended?
Im having net trouble because of a damn storm.
And whats the best out of the Schecter 7 Strings? Can you tell me some of the differences between them?
I also kinda dislike Schecter necks while i love Ibanez necks, but for me its all about the sound.
Where is this mysterious 7 String legion?
Will you forgive me for giving you enough questions to suffocate a small child?

These are off Musicians friend (I'm English, so I'm not sure about US guitar sites, sorry)-

1. Ibanez RG7321- $400

* Wizard II-7
* 5pc. Maple/ walnut neck material
* Basswood body
* 24/jumbo frets
* Bound rosewood finger board
* Fixed 7 bridge
* IBZ INF3 humbucker neck pu
* IBZ INF4 humbucker bridge pu
* Pearl dot inlay

2. Ibanez S7320- $700

* Ibanez ZR 7-string tremolo bridge
* Maple/walnut 5-ply neck
* Ibanez AH for 7-string humbucker pickups
* 22 Frets
* Mahogany Body
* Pearl dot Inlays
* Rosewood Fretboard

Schecter 7s-

The best out of those I mentioned is probably the C7 Hellraiser-$700-750

* Set-neck construction with ultra-access cutaway
* 26.5" scale
* Mahogany body
* Mahogany neck
* Rosewood fingerboard
* 24 X-jumbo frets
* Gothic cross position markers
* EMG 707TW pickups
* Push/pull knob for single- coil
* Volume/volume/tone controls
* 3-way pickup switch
* Thru-body TonePros bridge
* Abalone binding on Black Cherry & White, Gray Pearl Binding on Black
* Grover tuners
* Gloss black finish

You can compare the specs... its probably better for the money than the S but Schecter have a lot thicker necks. They're not unplayable, but for me personally, they aren't really that comfortable. I love Ibby necks.

The 7 string legion is a thread consisting of all the 7 stringers on the site, they'll answer your question probably better than I do! My brother has a 7321 though, so I know what I'm on about to a certain extent.

And no worries man, happy to help


EDIT- 7 string legion

EDIT2- Its 2:00 am here, so I'm going to bed. If you need any more help, I'll be after my lesson tomorrow.
