doesn't it make you wonder why no folk artist has ever wanted one of these? I looked on youtube for this model and found only metalheads stroking their cocks. It really makes me sad that 7 strings are looked at as metal guitars. I mean, that low B would be perfect as a route note while finger picking away and I can only Imagine the fucked up tunings I would be able to come up with.

Basslabs L-Bow bass. I don't like or dislike the look (but I love the look of my current Godin A5), but the look doesn't matter; I love the sound! I had a chance to try one out once, about six months ago, and now I'm desperately saving up with my minimum wage job to get the roughly $5000 money to get one!

That signature Les Paul is pretty classy, the rest, not so much.

If I ever get my hands on a Rickenbacker 4003, tears of joy will stream down my face.

Just got a Takamine EG-334C series electric acoustic guitar, does anyone here know anything about them? It plays very well, the fingerboard has great action, and I got it at a great price! far less than half the cost of a new one.

I have a Simon & Patrick Woodland Folk Cedar with soundhole pick-up, an Ibanez PF 105S NT, a Yamaha G-225 (mid 70's), and a Washburn electric.

I'm pretty happy with my options right now, but in the future if I might want a nice Takamine, or maybe a Guild. Dunno though... I'll see. An old strat would be nice too. And I'll admit, I've always wanted to see what a 7-string is like. It'd be kind of cool to have that extra bass string... so I could have it tuned CEADGBE or something like that. But hose are expensive, and it'd probably cost more to fix and stuff being that it's kind of a 'specialty' guitar. You'd need special pieces and all.

edit: Plus, I've got bass hands anyways... so being able to wrap the thumb around for the bass notes on the C, or B or whatever it's tuned to would make for some pretty sweet sounds. Finger picking, or even just playing away on the regular 6 strings and thrwoing the occasional thumb to the bass for a cool walking bassline with whatever riff or chords you're playing.

I have always wanted to try downtuning the lowest 3 string a step or two and leaving the others in standard. I figure it would almost sound piano like with separate bass and soprano parts.

this is a common misconception. there are plenty of relatively cheap 7 strings out there. you can get Jay Turser 7s in the same range an epiphone les paul or a mexican strat if not cheaper.

personally i didn't like 7 strings the few times i tried it - and i'm a person who had absolutely no issues going from 4 to 5 strings on bass - but adding that extra string to a guitar just made the whole thing feel wrong in my hands. more power to anyone who digs playing them though, don't ever have to worry about me ripping them off or giving their instruments belt rash.

@RezZ - similar to the idea of downtuning half the strings and leaving the other in standard - have you ever looked into 10 string guitars? i think BC Rich started them with the Rich Bitch back in the day. the two lowest strings are left like normal then the 4 higher strings are doubled.
