I always thought so. The routings are different. I know that.
oh cool! ok, since that they're identical, let say i have an RG with pickguard, an a cavity underneath.Drew said:identical.
I think you're biggest problem would be that you would have to move the trem post anchors to fit the wider trem (ie, remove them, fill the holes and re-drill which could be awkward). If it were a six string fixed bridge model body then I think it would be easy to rout the body for a 7 string neck, pickups and trem. The body shapes are pretty much identical - I've had an RG7 body sat on top of an RG6 body and they are the same apart from a slight change in shape around the edges of the neck pocket - not enough to worry about IMO.aj_foes said:oh cool! ok, since that they're identical, let say i have an RG with pickguard, an a cavity underneath.
if i do some routings on the neck pocket, to fit a 7-string neck, and also routings for the 7-string floyd-rose bridge, plus a new pickguard that fits 7-string humbuckers and singlecoil, ...then i'll have a 7 string, right?
but, considering the cost and time involved, i just might buy a new one LOL!
it's just me, n all this ridiculous ideas of mine
just get a 7, then u can just ignore the low B when its not needed!!SidewinderINC said:you could do that i guess
ive always wondered something quite similar.. but the other way round.
ok, i'm buying a £550 Prestige 6 string RG, but i also want a 7 string guitar...
could i spend that £550 on a 7 String Prestige RG (or add a little more if necesarry) and then if i feel like playing just a 6 string remove the low B ?
or would that mess with the trem?
sorry for hijack
