Actually, I've tried the Squire Stagemaster 7 FR. *It's a Strat shaped body, no pickguard, vol, tone, 3-way switch, two hum's, reverse headstock, locking nut, 24-fret, and Floyd-Rose. *I loved it! *And at a cool $500 Canadian, it's a great bargain for a decent sounding and feeling guitar. *I'm aware it's no UV or even RG, but it's a good 7-string anyways. *It's very nice. *They also had a Fat Strat 7, which also didn't look to bad. *I say try out anything before you buy it. *If you like the sound and feel, go for it, and screw anyone who says you "should've waited for a UV" or something like that. *That's my motto, as long as you like it, it doesn't matter if it's a $10 Walmart guitar or a top of the line, blah, blah, blah, it's still good.
(edited to change 5-way switching to 3-way. *I checked the site and saw I screwed up. lol :loco: And to add the following)
And another thing I like about Fender/Squire instruments, especially the Strats, they are extremely upgradable. *I added a DiMarzio Super Distortion to my Squire Strat recently without any routing required. *
