I played this guitar over the weekend. I was looking for a 7 string. I looked at it and thought it might be a good thing for the price....it wasn't. 1st off, 7 strings are good. 8+ and your pushing it a little too much. Might as well play bass if you want to go that low. It was impractical for me. The low end was too muddy and lacked any real clarity. I'm not a fan. The neck was a good size. Thin and easily playable. I'm a bass player so it was a good transition for my big hands. I instead just got a thicker gauge of strings and set my LTD 330 6 string to B-B. Saved myself some dough, and got the sound I was looking for. I'm not a solo guitarist so I won't miss that high E string.
I got this a month ago. Its a right handed guitar the LH can be misleading. Grab some ernie-ballz 8's, until dr comes out with a 8 set. I replaced mine day one. E-E stays in tune, F# needs tweeking before and after a set. Tuners are decent. Neck is thin, and fast. I play bass and the neck is thin simular to my guitar players RGA8, but shorter. Throw some heavier strings adjust the saddle to extend the scale and jam. I played some of the other manufacturers 6 strings "Damien/ Omen" and their necks are like Baseball bats.. I got this one for a great price and it plays well.
