I was wondering if a 7 string guitar sounds different from a 6string guitar. I'm not sure if body size and bracing are the same, I suppose not quite. Does that lead to a different general sound?
Imagine you'd string a 7 string guitar with only 6strings (you'd have a very comfortable string spacing with an appropiate nut and saddle btw ) to eliminate resonance and subtle overtones of the additional string - would there be a perceptible difference in sound?
Maybe because of the extra weight, mass, size, whatever, the guitar responses "slower".. I don't know.
