I'm wanting a 7 string to play some different stuff when I don't need the 8th string. I like everything about the Holcomb SE except the pattern wide neck (I'm also not a huge fan of Ibby necks, so no get a used Prestige). The SLS C7 I had wasn't bad, but the neck was a bit thinner than I would have liked.

Also, GASing for a PRS McCarty 594 Singlecut but not wanting to pay new prices (and finding a used one to physically try is tough).

Maybe try some Jackson and ESP 7s? Their necks are typically a bit more girth-y than Ibanez and the Schecter SLS neck, which are super thin. ESP especially is nice and thin, but has a roundness to it that’s not fatiguing in any way.

I really didn't need to see this in my usual pawn haunting grounds right now... :yum:

GASsing for this one currently:

... but I can't really justify buying one in any way, since I mostly play sitting down and mostly 6-strings at the moment :lol: If I get my band going again though, I might consider it again. We've been on a hiatus since the pandemic started.

@p0ke i totally feel you!
my old band was inactive since the start of the pandemic and in april we just recorded our last song and split after that. so now i'm lucky and might join a local band that plays 7-strings so i'm kinda GASsing for some more extreme shapes like a V (or anything else) with 7 strings.
That Jackson Rhoads X looks pretty sick!

Really gasing for one of those white LTD H31000FR’s. Does anyone have experience with the Floyd rose 1000se?

Those are gorgeous in white with the gold hardware! You must grab one haha

1000 is functionally the same as an OFR. Knife edges not quite as durable but if you're playing multiple guitars realistically it will last for years. Mine will hitch at a point about 15 cents flat after dive, but easily remedied with a quick pullup. Neither is as good as a Gotoh 1996T though ;)

Same but for the old gloss black RR7 import with passives that I can't find anywhere now 😭

Before I order a Death Kelly body, anyone have experience with KNE?

KNE does good work, both of my MJT strats are build with his bodies and the 2 Charvel'ish builds I have in process are also bodies from KNE. I actually have another strat body that should be here next week, just trying to decide if I want to do the build at MJT or GMW.
