This is my first seven string. But I have taken an incredible liking to the guitar. The neck feels full in my hand. It's not too wide where I feel like I break my wrist to reach the low string. And it's not so thin where it feels like there's nothing there. The hardware is decent. The 26.5 inch scale length works well with the low string, but the high 6 tend to feel overly stiff. Making vibrato on the low E uncomfortable (for me anyway.). The pickups are muddy when you've got the thing on full bore. I like to roll off the volume and tone knob a touch to clear it up a little bit. I like that the tone knob is out of the way. I really like the compound radius fret board. This thing is a tank. The transition to 7 string guitars felt seamless with this guy. I'd buy him again.
