Looking for my first seven string guitar

Hey guys I know this has been asked a lot but I am wondering what would be the best seven string out there at the moment

without killing my wallet

I was looking at a RG1527 but the blue it comes in doesnt appeal to me

I looked at some j customs and they are too pricey for me

I like to have a seven string with tremelo bridge and I nice upper access area

max spending would be 1000 euros

Re: Looking for my first seven string guitar

Have you thought of finding one of the RG1527s in black pearl? There might be a few around. I've played one, nice enough.

Re: Looking for my first seven string guitar

GAK are doing Pearl Black here in the UK, might be worth a look.

Try that new s-series 7, I wish Ibanez would give up on the whole black thing though

I ordered it but they dont have it in black anymore

Are you sure the black is in production anymore?

And in reply to the s series 7 string, I dont find the body that comfortable

The black is not in production. Hasn't been for 2-3 years or so.

Re: Looking for my first seven string guitar

My first was the RG7620VK and it is an awesome guitar. You might want to look into one of those. I just recently got rid of my Universe because it didn't play or sound any better than my 7620.

Re: Looking for my first seven string guitar

are there any production 7 strings that come on black and have a tremolo?

Re: Looking for my first seven string guitar

A guy on e-Bay was trying to sell a black RG1527 until yesterday when it didn't meet the reserve and the auction ended. I asked him what the price was and he said £330. No case, though. The guitar is mint.

Re: Looking for my first seven string guitar

I'd go with a 7620 until you decide whether or not the 7 is for you.

Re: Looking for my first seven string guitar

are 7620s still in production because I cant be bothered trying to get a second hand one

Last time I got a second hand guitar it wasnt playable and I was scammed my money

So I definitely dont want to do that
