7 string acoustic model

A new 7 string acoustic would be awesome. i would buy it. especially if it had like a 26/26.5 inch scale or EVEN BETTER a multi-scale 25 on the high end to 27 on the low. Maybe slightly wider string space since this would lead itself to a fingerstyle guitar rather than a strummer.

I know, i know.. they'd probably only sell a tiny number of them, but with a reasonably priced instrument like that released.. could probably pick up a lot of the Don Ross/Andy Mckee/etc style players who don't have $6000-$15000 OR MORE for a handbuilt acoustic. If it were a multi-scale and even cost $1500-$2500, i'd buy it so long as it played well. No licensing fees on fanned frets anymore from what i remember.

The AJ307 was not out very long, but long before i was interested in acoustic... Was it not received well during it's production years?

I would definitely buy a 7-string acoustic (if it's within a decent price range)

lots of custom builders do. ibanez and dean used to make production models, but i don't think anyone else has.
