This is my first post on the forum!
I have asked the same question on sevenstring.org forum although it applies to both places and I hope to get more opinions if you dont mind.
I have recently found myself playing more metal and I would like to get a guitar for lower tunings or perhaps a 7 string.
At the moment I am using my PRS cu24 in a variety of tunings, mainly drop C, drop B and drop A (ala 'the safety fire' : standard tuning with the low E string tuned to A), but I dont like constantly changing strings and tunings on that guitar and I would like to get something else dedicated to this.
I am really enjoying the different intervals between strings that these tunings create, so initially I was thinking of getting another 6 string (I had my eyes on an Ibanez RGR08) but now I am contemplating getting a 7 string also for the extended range and versatility.
I know it is a bit of "apples and oranges" kinda question but since I have never owned a 7-string I am looking for some guidance as to why I should or shouldn't consider one given what I am trying to achieve...
Any help/suggestions are appreciated
PS: getting both a 7 and 6 string is out of the question right now...
solution = buy an eight string!
