7 String Questions
I've recently become interested in owning an Ibanez 7 string.
I went and played one today at my local music store (RGD Axion label one) and was thoroughly thrown off by the low B. It felt like I was picking up a guitar for the first time, I felt so bad on it haha.
My questions are:
1. Scale length. I believe the RGD I played today was a 26.5" length. I didn't even notice it at the time but it felt fine. Is it important to have a longer scale 7 string? I only intend to use one mostly in B standard and perhaps drop A occasionally.
2. Looking for ideally a MIJ 7 string with maple fretboard and a hardtail (open to floating ones) bridge. Anyone point me in the direction of some potential model numbers?
