I wrote earlier this year about the four 7-string guitars I wouldn’t mind owning. I’m yet to get a 7-string guitar and of course want one. With an impending trip to the USA on the cards, I thought I’d look at the most affordable 7-string options I could find that I could then bring back with me. Amazingly, I found five top-name guitars all under $200USD.
A seven string Les Paul certainly isn’t new (Epiphone have the Matt Heafy model already), but a seven string Gibson Les Paul is new. Not only is it new, it’s black and it’s beautiful. This is most likely going to be the most impressive new guitar I see this year. This appeals to me greatly. It’s not just the seven stringed awesomeness that appeals to me though. This guitar comes pre-loaded with Seymour Duncan pickups (the awesome ’59 and JB combo). This guitar is simply screaming perfection for my likes, tastes and needs.… Gibson Les Paul 7 string

Those lists—have-nots and wants—are massive. There are so many options to consider when looking at different guitars.

They’re all six string guitars (until a string breaks). So I’ve been looking into seven string guitars.
There are so many to choose from and many of them are damn affordable. Care to see which models I like the most? Yes? Well read on. Or just look at the picture at the end of this article. Either way … … 7 string guitars—what would you choose?
