Comments about Jackson SLATXMG3-7 String Electric Guitar:
Let me begin with nice things by saying that this guitar plays amazingly. The neck is super comfortable and the frets are accessible. The extended scale gives the seventh string good tension compared to the other strings. One thing to note is that 9's will feel like 10's, 10's will feel like 11's, and so on because of the extended scale, but that's not a bad thing. Just be aware when you string this thing up that the strings will feel heavier, and adjust. On top of that, the EMG 707s are a solid set of pickups, although they are not the best in the world when you put them up against a set of Seymours or Bare Knuckles or something nicer like that. All my complaining about active pickups aside (because it really is just a personal preference), the only problem with the guitar is the bridge. The threading in the saddles will strip, and you are going to have to get them replaced every six months or so. Regular FR Special saddles don't fit this bridge, so you're going to have to special order them. It can be costly if you're having someone else do your repairs. Other than that, though, this is a great guitar, and I would highly suggest you get it if you're looking for a good mid-range seven string.
