    Looks like one of the guitarists of Pro-Pain is rocking one too! Oddly enough, their other guitarist is rocking an Ibanez ARZ307, which I also own...cool to see two of "my" guitars onstage! :lol:

    nice!
    For me, the reason I have an SE-7 is because its the most comfortable 7-string I've played (largely due to scale length I don't need to stretch my fingers as much to chord near the nut).
    Of course its greatest strength is also its greatest weakness (lack of tension, especially for downtuning).

    I dont know about that, I think it handles down tuning pretty good. Haven't tried below G# though.

    My comment was more or less just saying that with the smaller scale length you need thicker strings to achieve a particularly desired tension, and, as such, you also have to deal with the side-effects of thicker strings. This for some is fine, for others, thicker strings are less favorable (either due to feel or tone).

    EDIT: Ultimately, its all down to player preference.
