I know the thread is ancient (2006) but it's one of the few topics about these particular guitars. A friend of mine has an Aria LP copy and he loves it but I never knew they made 7 strings, especially in a Strat body. If you were in the chat a little later last night you would know I've currently got GAS for a 7 string Strat and the only option seems to be either :
Searching for a used Squier VII
Waiting for Agile Custom Shop (there was talk of a Strat VII but nothing happened )
It's only for $100 and I'm currently looking for something a little classier than my RG7321 - hence why it's for sale. Not to mention for you Jake fans, it's got the infamous reverse angled single coils
Anyone ever get to play one of these or have feedback on them? I know its not the greatest place for info but the reviews on HC say it's pretty good, bullshit maybe?
Warmoth won't do a 7-string Strat last I checked
