Cool Guitar I Found
I was at my local guitar store and I found a very cool guitar. It is a soprano 7-string which means that the 7th string is a High A instead of a Low B. (A over high E) Anyways I think it is custom made by a brand I don't remember. It has a short scale which is cool too. I just wanted to share because I didn't know guitars like this were around. The asking price is $800 so I will have to talk to someone about it to get more info. Just thought I would share.

Cool, although the fact that it has a high A is not that special. You can string 'em anyway you want, and in fact Vai suggested trying it in his 7 string instruction booklet (included with the original Universes)

Actually, Fender made a seven string Strat for Alex Gregory in the mid eighties strung with a high A so Alex could play violin pieces in the correct register...

I have always tuned my 7 strings with higher strings, not with low B's. Kevan will tell you how messed up it is. haha Anyway I have been playing 7 strings since 92/93 and I tune CGCFADG. Just my 2 cents. Thanks
