Stores are in a tough spot. It’s expensive to stock inventory that won’t turn, but the function of a store is local distribution. The minute the sales guy says, “we don’t stock it, but I can order it for you,” I leave and order it myself.

Also people misuse the guitars at GC. The worse I heard at the local GC store was a customer that caused multiple MusicMan guitars to drop and get scratched. Then he went on and purchased one of them for half-price.

I got a really nice EBMM Steve Morse Y2D for close to half price for someone had scratched the fretboard in on place -- does not bother me at all as gigging guitars get scratched anyway. But how to make any profit in such situations is challenging.

I must say that fanned frets have caught my interest. That and 7 strings? Yes please.

I think that's most shopper's M.O. when going to Guitar Center. For me, they never seem to have what I want anyway. I've always got to order regardless.

Ladies and gentelmen, the Ormsby RC One:



My intro to 7 and 8 string multi-scale opened up a whole new tonal landscape for me and had a huge impact on what I write and the way I write it. Have you given Kiesel a look? Semi-custom shop out of esondido. They seem to be a bit polarizing, but all my builds turned out virtually flawless.

I have looked at the Kiesels, and was considering having one built until Solar introduced their line.

If you're entertaining the idea of an 8-string, Tosin Abasi's guitar company Abasi Concepts might be worth a look.

They release instruments in batches and seem to sell out quickly.

So I'm curious, how exactly does one form chords on a seven and eight string guitar? Do you just tune it to allow it?

I haven't played either seven or eight stringed guitars but Tosin has a good breakdown of his approach to tuning and chord forms here: https://www.musicradar.com/tuition/g...-guitar-618895

Hooli-Iíve never laid hands on a Solar, but the folks I know who have all say that They love em. Gotta hand it to Ola, turned a goofy YouTube deal into a seriously viable enterprise.

TZ- Careful with the Abasi stuff. If you can lay your hands on a Grover built USA instrument, great. But the spotty quality on Japanese(and now Indo I think?) builds scares me off. And that whole Falbo debacle...ugh. Canít recommend his Fishman sig pups enough though. I sent a set to Kiesel with the wiring diagram I wanted for my ZM8 build and I just love em!

Korn- without geeking out on theory and only speaking to chord shapes...on a 7 the 7th string is a b which has the same relationship to an E as an E has to an A. So in some ways itís not so different from a 6 relationship wise. Same with drop A tuning on 7 being similar to drop D on a 6.
On an 8 itís again similar because the relationship of F# 8th string to the B 7th string is the same as the B to the E.
So if you play an Emaj ďshapeĒ on an 8 you get F#maj, and on a 7 you get Bmaj

As far as little tricks for tuning 7ís, hereís a fun one: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=g5YXlRg9FE0


Or better yet, ignore my nonsense and just read The link TZ provided.

I've read that getting acclimated to a fan fret axe is actually pretty intuitive. Now, chording and bending on a fretboard outfitted with true temperment frets... Umm...
