Extended Scale Guitars -- Help


Well hello.


I am looking for an extended scale guitar (i.e: 26.5"-27"; 6 or 7 string)


I was looking at the Agile 627 & 727 models, but they use a 1 5/8" & 1 7/8" nut widths, and that will be too narrow for my sausage fingers


Throw me some models, regardless of brand, that have extended scale lengths (preferably 6 strings).

I know of the:

-Ibanez RGD320 (quality?)
-Ibanez RGD2120Z (price )
-LTD VB-400
-LTD MHB-400

I think you see the obvious ones, but Schecter makes a few, I don't remember exact names, but the baritone moniker is what they are labeling them.

Music Man has two baritones if you want a higher end one. The John Petrucci BFR Baritone is an extended scale (baritone) 6 string guitar that has a trem and peizos, along with standard electronics. That is about as high end as I have seen, and they are harder to find.

EBMM JPM baritone, but of course the price is going to get you there.

there's also the Schecter Hellcat, but that's 30"(same as some basses)

EDIT: Ibanez had a Japan-only run of 27" scale RG's a while ago, I believe it's called the RG-X series, but I'm not sure.(I've been GASsing for one since I heard of them)

RE-EDIT: Nevermind, the specific model name was the RG1077XL, and it's a 7-string(still 27", though).

RE-RE-EDIT: the 6 string version of the RG1077XL is the RG970XL, and they're both prestige models. I saw an RG970XL with mods and 3 scratches/bumps going for $1000 shipped on SS.org, so I'd assume a stock one in mint condition would go for $1600, and possibly a bit more for the 7.

ALSO:PRS's Mike Mushok Signature model(Or you can find a used one of his old Ibanez sig), both are 28"

Re: Extended Scale Guitars -- Help


the 1077XL [Lo-Pro] and 2077XL [Edge Pro] are 27" 7 strings while the 970XL is a 27" 6 string.
the latter is 'harder' to find but they're around...
