7 string questions
Hey all, im considering buying a 7 string. Not sure which one yet, but im sure most people here will encourage me towards a Universe or a J custom!
Anyway, I had two questions. The first....
1. On a 7 string, does the wider neck have an effect on your speed? I remember a comment by a forumite here saying that when they switch from their 7 string to their 6 string, playing the 6 string feel a lot easier. I am interested in the extra range of a 7 string, but if it is going to impede my playing, then i am not too sure about whether to get one.
2. Does string gauge affect speed? I am not only referring to the low B on a 7 string, but to general strings in general. Some string brands have higher tension and some lower, different gauges have different feels but i wondered whether a heavier or a lighter gauge was easier to pick quickly on? Or am I just being stupid and it makes no difference? I would go out and try all those string brands but im saving for this new guitar and i dont want to waste it on loads of string packs, i bareley ever change strings anyway.
