Anyone played one of these?? Prior to the recent changes I had planned on buying a NT-7 (25.5" Scale), now I see that they've changed some cosmetics (Which I like) and made it a baritone scale (27"). So I'm wondering if this is going to make the guitar a lot more difficult to play for solos or what? Or is it not a huge difference? Also will finding strings be a pain in the rear?
It seems that the Stephen Carpenter signatures for a long time have been baritone 7's, so if you've owned one of those you can likely weigh in...
It doesn't take too long to get used to the longer distance between frets. I think it makes it easier to play more cleanly up high because of the greater spacing but I don't play so much so it might not help someone who practices all the time as much.
I have an nt-7 and it is the best playing most comfortable 7 string I have ever played so that being said I think the nt-7b should be about the same other than the longer scale It also has the thinner 45mm nut and I really love that about my nt-7 so for low tunings the nt-7b should be quit sweet
