Which 7 string?
I thought I'd throw myself on the collective knowledge of Jemsite.
I'm looking to pick up a 7 string guitar. I have played an Ibanez 7 before, it's been a loooooong time, but I've owned several Ibanez guitars and recently picked up an RG550 20th, which I'm falling in love with all over again.
So I notice that there's a bunch of different models to choose from as far as Ibanez goes, but specs only tell you so much.
What would y'all suggest as a "first" 7 string? I don't mind shelling out for a higher-priced guitar, but as always cost is a bit of a concern.
I'm also a HUGE fan of maple fingerboards. I notice that other than one lonely Universe, there's not a lot of maple boards on 7s.
