So I'm in the market for my first 7 string and have narrowed it down to these two guitars. They are both very thin and mean looking guitars and both come with EMG 707s. Have any of you had personal experience with either one that could help me make the decision? My last 4 guitar purchases have been Ibanez so I'm looking to change things up but that being said, I absolutely love Ibanez necks. I like the finish, headstock, inlays, and neck thru on the jackson. The kill switch is a nice feature on the Ibby and I know I will like the neck. Also will the 26.5 scale of the jackson be really noticeably different than the 25.5 on the Ibanez?
I doubt you'll really notice the difference in scale that much, I never had any issues moving between the different ones I've had (24.75, 25.5, 26.5 and 27 all at once).
