So I'm gonna have about 15 bills to drop on a real metal axe hear in a few months. If you've followed my drunken rants, you'll know my rents got plowed into by some drunken jackass and they're about to get paid an ass ton of money, and rightfully so. They owe me money and told me they'd pay me once the settlement happened. That's cool with me, cuz I don't need the money, and they're already more than generous.
Anyways, (I should stop using that "word"). I want to buy an awesome axe and I'm at a loss. My carvin dc135t has the perfect neck for me, but LP's have the perfect tone. I'm considering a cs6 with some blackouts, but I dunno. I have a light touch and generally play lighter strings. My LP's are setup with 10's for standard tuning and 13's for drop c. My dc135 needs some 10s with heavy bottoms to pull off a drop c tuning along with the tremol-no. I also have a dc727 that is setup with 11's and I believe a 57 b string, which is way too floppy for my tastes.
So, I'd rather have a 7 string hardtail, but what should I look for? I'd love to have a Loomis HT, but they're really ugly, imo. I dunno what to look for outside the custom build world.
My only hold up here is that I wanna get an awesome amp, but I'm not in a band and I'll be living in an apt with a giant dog. Considering what the breed is, I'd rather keep a low pro, instead of a halfstack that would undoubtedly wake up the kids next door. If I do get a band going, I'll likely get a rehearsal space to jam at, but for now, that's not too likely.
