    Damn these are heavily discounted. Really good quality for the money. Thanks for the heads up!
    I had the 8 string guitar but with a Green Quilt Veneer.

    Do I need an 8? No. Is it worth it at that price?


    ...Perhaps

    This might be a good way for me to get into a longer scale 7...mine are all 25.5.

    I wish this was around when I got my first 7 string.I had to get the model with the floyd rose and EMG 707s secondhand,and even then I paid more than what you can get here.I'd rather have the Sentient/Nazgul set over the 707s any day.

    One thing I always thought was strange was 7 strings with 26.5”+ scale neck length. I always felt the point of a 7 string was the have the same exact feel of a 6 string fretboard, without having to down/re tune. I don’t mind 26.5” because like a 7 string, it isnt much difference than a 6....but what does that extra inch afford? If this is rudimentary forgive my naïveté.

    Personally, I don’t think 26.5 gets you anything drop a and above At lower tunings it’s supposed to sound better as well as intonate and play better with thinner strings.
