The handle is really nice, it is thinner than competitors to 7 strings. One can easily move on and enter the lower strings without dislocating the wrist, which is not true for all Ibanez 7-string ... For cons, the wood is not as good on the peavey and the handle is not as "fluid", it says the handle is very nice and respect the game
The access to treble is good, by the shape of the guitar, but since there are only 21 frets, all the solos are not possible. (Forget the idea of playing solos Misteur Vai, or even metallica ..) The guitar has a good balance but is a little heavier than what it suggests when the track on a stand. Its shape does not Blaisse forearm and fastening the strap are sure: it is a guitar that can move well without being afraid.
Quickly found its mark on the side of sound, but some are disoriented by the 7emme rope. It takes a little time for acclimatization.
A 7-string, stockings done to play serious ... and styles that we play serious y'en not thirty six. Either you are a virtuoso slap bass line during the execution of a solo (it's not my case), and there I recommend another guitar ... more accurate and with better Luter, or you want to send more air into the amp. This guitar is made for naked neo (Korn, Deftones .. and other American friends) or the large death-thrash like Slayer, Meshuggah, Textures, Strapping Young Lad ... I used to play death / thrash bizaroïde texture, it suits me well since I changed the bridge pickup.
I have an amp Hughes & Kettner Attax 100 combo (with the old blue marmoset around!) And three effects (in order guitar -> amp: Rocktron Metal Planet [extreme distortion, but versatile!], Guyatone MD3 [is a delay], and the ibanez CF7 chorus / flanger).
Before changing pickups, the sound was very blues (attention, my amp is not typed metal, yes, but I tested it on anything that is [even a mesa dual rectifier] and the sound is bluesy) with notes in the mediums resortent frankly, its a very fat (in a good way) and even elegant in the first six strings. But when we play on 7emme is the drama ... drool and low notes become vague, not to mention the decline in volume.Mais is perfect for work in his room, and even repeated by too much against it to record a rough demo "audible and understandable" . The clean sounds are average, but with a proper amp and a chorus that sounds good.
on the other hand, with 2 DiMarzio blaze in the bridge that sends thunder. The distos are balanced, we put a lot or little gain. Low cavernous but are no longer present and accurate. The Luter of the guitar should not be bad because the microphone is expressed very plain. I put 6 because, with the microphones of origin, 7emme morffle rope a little.
I have this guitar for 6 years, three with a DiMarzio in the bridge in place of the original microphone. This is a guitar that is for the beginner big sound, but can be as deuxiemme guitar. I say that while this is my first guitar ... But I do not regret it, it was clear to me that this would serve as a scratching play Meshuggah (at least until the album Chaosphere) and Company. If this is your case: go for it! It is cheap for a 7-string, well made, almost better than the ibanez. Of course it sounds less (although, once customized with a DiMarzio ... or even something else). As against the model with floyd is horrible! they do not want the agreement and acts floyd reverb has its own ...
It's a good guitar to start, if I began the guitar I do it again this choice. In its original config, I put 8 for a beginner's big sound is perfect. But for someone to confirm it is 6, as a good scratch to have fun playing the heavy, but not more, to mons to inflate the device with a microphone more accurate.
