Switching back to 6

Does anyone here perfer 6 over 7 strings? call me nuts but i rarely play the 7th string. and i have quite small hands (my pinky is mini) and i cant use it most of the time. but when i play 6 strings its just feels better. anyone here have that same thing, or am i a mini pinky freak? anyways i was strongly thinking of getting a KH 602 or Kh2 i would perfer they KH2 just due to the fact that it is ESP rather then Ltd but the only thing is i love ibanez trems. is the orignal Rose any good?

Thanks for your time

I like both
I've been playing my 6 more than the 7 lately, but in a week it may be different!
the original roses are ok, a bit too stiff to me anyways

It's good and will hold it's tune, it just lacks the feel of the Edge imho... glen

Yeah, I started a thread on here about switching from 7s back to 6s. However, I've become a hypocrite by NOW switching from 6s to 8-strings!

Oh well...

i play 7's almost exclusively now, and have done since the arrival 3 years ago of my first RG7620, Since then, My LP has been neglected and 6 string projects never get finished

I guess everyones milage is differant, but i love the option, and feel of the necks, I for one am definately more at home on ANY 7 compared to a 6

I use 7 for a couple of pieces, but find myself preferring 6, especially after over 25 years of 6 strings. Maybe it would be the other way around, had I started with 7?
