Re: GiO 7's ?????
IIRC, it doesn't have a hardtail bridge, but rather a strat-style bridge unlike the 7321. I've followed a few of them on the 'bay and was tempted pick one up, if not just out of curiosity. Problem is, plan to change out the pickups- that's the problem with entry-level 7's. If the pickups are too muddy (which most cheap ones are, even on 6's), you'll get no definition on the 7th string and the guitar will probably take one-way trip to the closet.
I recommend that you check out the 7-string market in general on the 'bay. I picked up a Schecter Avenger Plus 7 for $150, which is pretty close to the going rate for the GIO's. I also bought up a pair of cheap Blazes from someone else, threw 'em in, and it's an awesome guitar. If you keep your eyes open, similar opportunities will open up.
