What is your opinion of this product?
Ordered this guitar because I'm a big fan of Trivium, Les Pauls, and wanted to get more into playing a 7-string. I've played other seven-strings that were more economy-priced than this one and was way more satisfied with those guitars than this one. The first issue is the scale length. I generally play tuned down a half step, and given that Trivium plays that tuning and specifically on this guitar, I figured the standard scale length wouldn't be an issue; I was wrong. Just dropped a half-step turned this guitar into a muddy mess, even after setting it up and making adjustments for the lesser tension. The guitar barely holds up for standard 7-string tuning. The hardware felt extremely cheap, especially the tuners. The tuners on my Epi LP Custom Pro are more substantial and sturdy feeling than on this guitar, and it was 200 bucks cheaper than this. The Epiphone strap locks that are included ruined and stripped out the bottom strap peg. Overall, I am wholly dissatisfied with this guitar.
