I made a "Recommend me a guitar." thread a few months ago and bought the JACKSON DKMG in february. I wasn't satisfied with it tuning down to Drop A/Standard A, so: Now I'm on the market for a new guitar, this time a 7-string. I'm also going to buy a 5-string bass. Recommend me a 7-string (at least 26.5") guitar, tops 2000$. Bridges doesn't matter, the most important thing is the sound. I've been looking at: IBANEZ RGD2127Z ESP LTD SC-607B I will try them in a couple of days and but I would like some other alternatives if I don't like them. I'm thinking of putting in Lundgren M7, at least in the bridge - is it nice in the neck aswell? As for the bass, I don't really know what I am looking for - I know I want a 5-string that is 35". Price around 500$. My current bass is a Cort Action Bass (cheap 4-string 34"), I love the (string)sound but the lowend is a bit wobbly, the sustain and the action is not optimal. If you have a DI of either a recommended 7-string guitar or 5-string bass, please post it!
