Ibanez AF 207 7 string jazzer-24.7"scale??
Being *the owner of a Herbie Mann CD, I'll respond. :-)
Ibanez did the scale length to give the feel of a 6 in a 7 package. *Good idea, on paper. *If I'm not mistaken, the guitar came tuned BEADGBE...from the factory. *With that tuning, it'd feel quite normal. *Dropping to A...yikes....fughetaboutit. LOL
Maybe they could offer it in two different scale lenghts? *24.75" and 25.5". * Just an idea.
In the meantime, you *could* have the bridge re-set at 25.5 by a trusted luthier. *Just a thought....
BTW- nice ride!
