Really though the history of the modern 7 string electric guitar begins in the 80s with Steve Vai. Vai’s signature Ibanez Universe guitar, the UV7, was the first mass produced 7 string electric guitar. It would go on to define the genre and was played by the likes of John Petrucci and Korn.

Since then, 7 string guitars have been a staple of modern metal music, a variety of brands have released 7 string guitars, including Schecter, Ibanez and Jackson. The low, beefy tones being a perfect match for bone shaking distortion sounds and skull crushing riffs. Popular signature 7 string guitars are Matt Heafy’s Epiphone Prophecy, Mark Holcomb’s PRS SVN, Misha Mansoor’s Jackson HT7 and Keith Merrow’s KM-7.
