fcckkk.

I'm thinking of getting a Carvin. Are 7-strings worth it?

It depends if you'd like a seventh string! They're quite fun to mess around with, but I don't play/know enough music that utilises one to make the purchase of one viable. If you do, however, definitely go for it (and Carvins are sexy!).

Metica - Yeah that's the thing. I know it's gonna be super fun to mess with. Maybe write some heavy riffs and what not! I just feel like I'd be limited to the heavier riffs.

I'm thinking though maybe it could open up some chord shapes for clean stuff though I don't know artists that put that to use enough so I'd have ideas and what not. NEED MOAR MUSIC


Sean - 8-strings!!!!!!!! Ffff. Maybe I am just GAS-ing

I'd love some extra strings. I like the beefier bass notes. Makes me go all like this: :x

Sometimes I feel like I'd just be stuck playing heavier stuff, then I try to arrange a piano piece and wish I had more stings.

I know how you feel. Also with higher notes. I was arranging this piano piece and I needed a high F -_- I just tuned my guitar to EADGBF but frig

YES. Tremel-no that thing and it's amazing.

My friend Jonathan got one of the first 7 string suhrs produced. It is pretty much a Guthrie Govan 7 string model...amazing resonance for a 7 string. Acoustically loud as hell, and clear as day.


7 strings are worth it if you plan on writing some heavy music, or plan to take your jazz voicings to the next level. Periphery and AAL make amazing use of 7 strings.

I got to play an Ibanez Universe,and that thing just feels weird!

And also confirmed that I don't need a seven string!

I don't feel like Carvin 7 strings are all that great honestly. They do feel really good, but unless you're going to shell out extra cash for some bareknuckle 7s, I wouldn't go for it, switching pickups on the thing will be a bitch since they insist on using smaller sized carvin pickups.

There are many Ibanez and Schecter 7s that feel really good and are under the 1,000 mark. And if you can afford it...the 7 string JP sounds amazing

Oh man I don't have cash for that. I don't think I have cash for any guitar actually. Seems we're on a tight budget this May/April. I dunno what to get, actually.
