The 7 string guitar was invented to fulfill a desire for additional musical range lacking in the six string version of the instrument. They have existed and been in use for over 150 years. The most popular tuning for the 7 string guitar is B, E, A, D, G, B & e. This is the tuning used on most electric and acoustic 7 string guitars. There are also flamenco sets that utilize two D strings. As with any guitar, it is possible to tune a 7 string guitar to a wide variety of tunings. Some people use a low C or A instead of a B. Others opt to use a high A string, usually a .008 gauge instead of the low B. However one chooses to tune it, the 7 string guitar offers more sonic range than a regular six string guitar.

Although a 7 string guitar is capable of much more low end than a standard six string guitar, it is important to remember when experimenting with alternate tunings and string sizes that it is still a guitar, albeit with one more string. It is not advisable, and in most cases is actually quite impossible, to put an electric bass string on a 7 string guitar. Most 7 string guitar strings come packaged as sets with a low B ranging from .054 to .060. Anything much larger than a .060 is unlikely to fit into the tuning machine. It is also possible to damage the nut of an instrument by trying to string it with strings of too large a gauge.
