The biggest name in 7-string guitar-making is Ibanez, and it is the Ibanez brand that has fuelled the sound of Nu-Metal around the world. Like most Ibanez models, the 7-string range is well made with high quality finishes, and they deliver a distinctive, fat sound. They are also priced to give great value for money.
In recent years, a strong competitor to Ibanez has emerged in the shape of Harley Benton. These have rapidly become best-sellers, and have attracted excellent reviews. Other 7-string builders of note include Cort, and well-known names such as Squire, ESP and Epiphone. Given their heritage as luthiers, all these are worth considering.
