I'm going to try to ask this question without being overly offensive...
Does it matter to any of you whose sig models you are supporting?
I know Vai fans are probably more likely to lean towards Jems and Universes compared with the average guitar player, and Satch fans naturally gravitate toward JS
But how about when its the other way around? No offense to Korn fans and I don't want to start a flame war, but they do absolutely nothing for me musically or otherwise. I don't like the music, respect the playing, or like the way they seem to carry themselves. I know many of you do, and I respect your right to do so. Ice Cream.
I am strictly a 7 string player at this point. I cannot imagine myself buying a 6 in the near future, and Ibanez has just retired the 7620. There is still a decent selection of 7s to be had, but I'm afraid that its going to be for 7s soon as it is now for leftys. Take what you can get and hope for some nice models every now and then. So when Ibanez introduces a new 7, I take notice...
Anyway, I'm curious to see how I react to the K-7. How easy will it be to get past my feelings on Korn? Much easier if it doesn't actually say Korn on it I would guess, but I don't know.
Superficial, I know. Sue me.
Are there many Vai haters here that are still Jem/Universe fanatics?
