A bassist from a band I used to be in has one of the Groove Tools 6 string bass guitars and he loves it. It sounds good too, but that might be a combination of his rig/guitar.

Anyhow that's a bass not a guitar though...

The bassplayer in the band of a friend of mine has an endorsement... I believe he's got a nine string bass or something...Serious quality as far as I know...

I have played a Conklin 7 string guitar, the Groove Tools one and I think they are pretty good for the price. They seem to be really comfortable to play and they sound pretty good too. I've seen them on ebay for $300 to $400. I would pay that for one in a heartbeat.

Hi, i tried one when they first came out like a year and a half ago, they seemed pretty nice, but i didn't like the non locking trem and ended up getting a 7620 when they were at 450 at AMS, they used to be like 600 bucks new so if u find one cheaper it would be a pretty good buy, especially at ebay, i've also seen a few of them got for 300.
