Exclamation Xiphos 7 stringers, opinions wanted

Hey guys, i know we all love the goofy lookin xiphos(right), and we all love necrophagist(whatever), haha, well i do anyway.

But who here wants to see a xiphos 7 stringer on the market?

If they're gonna try to market 7 stringers to crazy metal heads and death metal-ers, dont you think the xiphos would be the way to go? I mean sure the RG1527 is awesome and i plan on getting one, but 7321's just arents cuttin it and they dont make 7620's anymore(which they need to bring back by the way) all in all the xiphos seems like it would be a killer 7 string model

Please state your opinions on this.

A 7-string Xiphos would be pretty cool.

Re: Xiphos 7 stringers, opinions wanted

im not a fan (almost wrote phan :P) of that chameleon finish on it, and id wish it wasnt a neck-through, but rather a set-thru neck (set neck with extra deep neck pocket)...

other than that, im game... as long as its fixed bridge! :P

id love to have an iceman-destroyer mix 7 string too, that would be schweet!

A 7-string iceman would be tits! I really dig my iceman and i'd like it even more if it had an edge trem, or better yet an edge trem and an extra string!!

Re: Xiphos 7 stringers, opinions wanted

I dunno, the 7 string market seems pretty small recently and i dont see alot of 6 string xiphos kicking about, i think 7 string ones would be in even smaller numbers.

That being said, they mite be popular with 7 string players who are after something other than a super strat shape.

Re: Xiphos 7 stringers, opinions wanted

my other guitar player would buy one in a heartbeat. he is the one on christoperwoods site getting the destroyer body made. we are gutting an rg7620 to make it happen. he has already expressed interest in the 6 string version, but since the only gigging he does is with the 7 strings...that is more priority. he already has a custom explorer, so the xiphos is definitely a possiblity.

Re: Xiphos 7 stringers, opinions wanted

i played the 6 string version and it was pretty comfy , and suprisingly light . i think a 7 string version would be sweet ...... i'd like to see it with a ZR trem too , that would be cool .

More sevenstrings is always nice, but there are more important options on the agenda than the Xiphos 7. We've yet to have an RGT7...
