    I have 3 different 7 Strings, love them all. 2005 Schecter Hellraiser C7 (26,5"), Ibanez RG2077XL (27"), Agile Interceptor Pro 727 (Neckthrough 27"). Newer model Schecters are pretty good, but not as good as the old ones. I prefer 27" to 26,5" scale, yes that half inch does make a difference. I'd say your best bet in getting a 27" 7 String would be Rondomusic/Agile, build quality is pretty damn good for the money.

    Thank you for your opinions! You're too kind.
    Nice guitar over there!! Too pretty!!


    I guess I will not sell my 6 string guitar by now...


    In terms of sound do your Aguile sound better than your Hellraiser?
    Cheers!!

    Love my Schecter Blackjack 7! I kept tuning 6's lower and lower until I hit B-standard, and then I realized I might as well get a 7-string since it'd be the same thing with a high E

    I liked my 7 string Ibanez. Just had no use for the extra string in the end so I sold it to get something else (Can't remember what).

    I think the biggest issue was that I was the only one in my band with a 7-string guitar so we couldn't really put it to use there.
