I've been contemplating this for awhile now, and I've decided to start using 5 strings instead of 4. So now, since we use 7 string guitars, the low B will match that, and I won't have to tune down at all, and I'll have the option to go higher also. No shxt. I'm a freak But anyways, I was thinking of getting a Spector...I've heard they're good for metal/hardcore. Opinions?
