"The 7-String Stigma"
I don't own a 7-string, but would love to, and have tried one. *I love em! *For me, the extra string just adds a lot. *I agree, that a UV built to the same specs as EVO would be really cool. *I don't understand the whole anti-7-string thing either. *I think the reason most people have for hating 7-stings is that they hate Korn. *But they don't realize it can be used in so many different ways. *For those of you that have seen the For The Love Of God video, he does this fast run starting on the low B string and moving up to the highest, it really adds a neat effect. *And, just as a side note, Korn started using 7-strings BECAUSE of Steve Vai. *Munky (one of the guitarists) was a big Vai fan and when he saw the 7-strings he decided to use them in his own way to make some "really heavy assed music". *I personally like Korn's music, simply because they're one of the few bands out there doing something different. *I have even seen Korn using a UV777BK live on stage. *So don't dis em too much. lol
