Tap into the full technical potential of the RGD7521PB 7-string, the ultimate metal machine. The RGD7521PB takes your playing to a whole new level of sharp, angular intensity. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in ”normal” guitars. To optimize for the rich, desirable thickness of tone that down-tuning produces, we extended the neck by one inch to a 26.5” scale. Longer-than standard yet not overly long. The neck is still considered a ”fast” neck for speed soloing. Extra-deep cutaways grant comfortable access to the necks highest notes.
