Merry Axemas to me

I was very fortunate to receive this seven string guitar for Christmas:



Quote:
Wizard-7 Prestige neck
3pc. Maple Neck Material
Basswood Body
24/Jumbo frets
Rosewood Finger Board
Edge Pro 7 bridge
IBZ V7-7 (H) Neck PU
IBZ V8-7 (H) Bridge PU
Pearl Dot Inlay
PC : Hardware Color

Basswood Body

Basswood is a comparatively lightweight wood, which makes it very comfortable for extended playing. With a good balance of highs and lows, basswood is right in between alder and mahogany in sound character.

24/Jumbo frets

Jumbo frets offer easy playing for leads and chording.

Rosewood Finger Board
Rosewood offers a strong, bright sound and an attractive appearance with a long grain.

It sure is different playing a 7 vs 6 string guitar. I didn't realize how much I used the low E string as a reference point for chord shapes.

*Sighs* I love guys who play the guitar!! LOL

I've always wanted to learn how to play, but I don't think I'm that coordinated. I just stick with my singing...LOL

Sweet Shan! I love Ibanez guitars. My Ibanez is closing in on 15 years old, and I still wouldn't trade it for anything...

Very nice. I feel Ibanez is the HJC of guitars - right price and high quality - most bang for your buck - everything else is overpriced or junk. That is a sweet looking axe. I am selling my Ibanez - great guitar but it is right handed - I am going to opt for a left handed and try to learn that way to see if it improves my playing.

What's the difference, all you're going to do is bash them on the stage at the end of your show anyway...why buy good ones?!?
