Try for a universe. They'll do everything you need. Failing that there's some nice 7 string RGs out there. Just gotta do some looking around. You'll find something.

Re: picking a 7 string

the 7620 is pretty beaten, how much do they cost these days anyway?

im planning to put on d-sonic and air norton on them.

Re: picking a 7 string

7620's are probably the best 7 you can get for the price with a trem...

Other than a Schecter Hellraiser, if you dont like trems, they are great too

If you aren't getting it tho, tell me where this one is because I might consider it, even if its beaten up, thats even better for me =]

Re: picking a 7 string

One of my mates has a Schecter hellraiser 7 string, it comes standard with a Duncan 59 and JB set. I've heard him gig with it and a H&K warp 7 combo, must admit its a really really sweet sounding guitar ^^ Never played it myself, but it certainly has the tone to satisfy my soul

If you get a 7620 and set it up really well you'll have an awesome 7 string.
They really are great guitars!
