I've been playing 7 string for almost a year now. I tune to drop A flat and find it near impossible to set up any 7 string I've used without getting annoying fret buzz on the low B through D strings. I also like to shred which is really tough when the action is 3mm off of the fret board. I just got an Ibanez RGD 7321 which has a 26.5 inch scale and I'm running string gauges 64-11 out of necessity because i pick really hard. I do know what I'm doing when it comes to setting up guitars but I'm at a loss with every 7 I've used. Is this a common problem with 7 strings? Any advice would be much appreciated.
