8-string guitars are Tosin Abasi’s primary instruments, but he’s no stranger to 7-string guitars, and the idea of the Ionizer 7™ came up soon after the Ionizer 8™ left the drawing board. The Ionizer 7™ Neck Model has warm lows and clear highs, and performs like a classic single-coil in split mode.
The Ionizer 7™ isn't simply the 7-string version of the Ionizer 8™. The highs are a little brighter and the lows are a little deeper, to bring out the specific frequency response of the 7-string. Like the Ionizer 8™, the single-coil sound is as important as the series humbucking sound, and the split mode is clear and open, with highs that are bright but not thin.
