Going through my pics from the tour, I found these. Steve playing my hardtail:

I remember this was during soundcheck in San Diego. Steve wanted to write a new song based on the 7 string.

Thought I'd share.

My question is what does Steve think of the more strat like design you have going with that hardtail? Ive never really had the chance to use a good seven string with a single coil in the neck position. My pos just has the three way switch. I guess I could put a coil tap in but I hate the pickups anyways.

As a prior owner of a 7620 wired with a three way and a coil tap (AN/TZ7's, too)... a neck single coil sounds PHENOMINAL on that low B. Hell, across the entire fretboard, but I got my start on a strat, so I've always liked that sound. :lol:

Good to see Steve with a 7 again, he's really moved away from them in the wake of Korn...

Hopefully Vai writes a song or two for the 7 string and they release a RI UVMC for the 20th ann.
That ain't a bad idea. I think the 7-string folks would fight tooth-and-nail to get an order in for a 20th anniversary swirl done in the RI album cover's colors.

I purchased an RG7621 that I'm customizing (slowly, but it's getting there). The whole idea was inspired by Dave's 7-string strat and the fact that in 15 years, I've never owned a hardtail guitar. I'd love to see some new life breathed into the 7-string guitars. Despite the support they seem to have from players on the Internet, I just don't think the market is there... which is why the UV has stagnated for the past six or seven years... and why we don't see a hell of a lot of variety in the current lineup.

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread.
