...and I'm really happy I did, pretty much ignored my 6 stringers. Just wanted to say hello and I hope to learn about all aspects of guitar, from playing them to working on them, and I want to learn about quality hardware, parts and new innovations that come around. I bought the Jackson JS22-7, entry level I think it is real quality for the money. I'm happy with everything about it for a 1st 7 string. Only thing I'd like to do is get better tuners and I'm hoping for a suggestion of a place to find a Schaller 3x4 set. Any suggestions of any type of locking tuners would be great and thanks. Glad to find a nice site like this.
