Even though most seven-string guitar models basically just add an extra string to the traditional six-string format, many guitarists find the seven-string as foreign and awkward as a nuclear-powered Mongolian yak bazooka. 

Ergonomics is a key factor of any good seven-string guitar design, particularly for more technical players seeking an instrument that can expand their performance capabilities.
