I was looking recently at one of Stephen Carpenters signature ESP's and i came across 2 of his 7 string models. One was standard 25.5" scale and the other has a 27" scale. I've considered getting one of the extended scale ones because although i enjoy the standard B tuning, sometimes i like to experiment and go lower. My questions are: 1. Is the extra length on the neck going to take a lot to get used to? 2. Is the string tension going to be too much?(I doubt it, i play zakk wydle's .70's in B) and 3. When i play it, can i also make it sound the same as a normal scale 7 string or should i just get the 25.5" one? Any help with these questions will be greatly appreciated.
