THIS IS MADDENING!!!!!!!

I went to GC today to check out a 6505+ head, and I loved it, so I'm planning on getting it A.S.A.P, but I was also there to play an Ibanez Xiphos 7 stringer. They didnt have one. *I had brought my 6 string along to play through the amp btw* but they did have another Ibanez. It was also a seven string, and after playing several different 7 string guitars...MY SIX STRING FEELS TOO SMALL! It doesnt feel the same!

More to the point, I cant remember the damn name of this guitar....it's priced around 400$...but that's all I can remember

Any help? both on the guitar, and the getting used to just 6 strings again

ew, you don't want that guitar.

Don't worry you'll get used to your guitar neck again o.O

Ibanez? 400 bucks?

^Joe Satch used a 7 in a couple of songs, if you're so biased against them.

Yup! That'd be the one! What d'ya think of it anyway? I cant find an Ibanez Xiphos in ANY shop anywhere near me, so I thought I'd get that and make a few adjustments, such as a pup replacement, maybe a different bridge, new wiring, and so on.

Just give it a few days and you'll get used to it. I play bass occasionally and then the guitar feels tiny in comparison, but it's just something to get used to.

I didn't play a Xiphos 7, but I've played a few RG7321s, some felt like crap, some played great (like most cheaper guitars) but if you're gonna do alot of mods to it, might as well consider higher priced guitars (Schecter C-7 with Duncan Designed Actives for example).

I dig my Xiphos for sure, plays much nicer than an RG7321, but their necks are similar, but again, they aren't the same. That's for sure.
I'd recommend the Xiphos to anybody who wants a 7-string, it might be a bit too much at first for a first 7 string, but I regret nothing after buying mine.

Well the thing is I would LOVE to try one out, but I cant find one and I've heard so many good things about them, and to the guy who suggested a Schecter, I dont like the feel of those. =/
