Kazu, I sincerely recommend you the 7-string guitars by Munhoz. I have two outstanding 7 string guitars made by him (actually, the first one he built with his father when he was alive).

 

Their price is fair and cheaper than other builders of the same or even inferior quality. He takes around 6 months to build each guitar.

 

This is his website, where you can find his email. He also speaks english

Kazu, I recommend you to talk and try a Robert O'Brien guitar. Check his job out on http://www.obrienguitars.com/

 

I once played a 7-string guitar the he built and it is an awesome instrument, very confortable and with a great tone. He learned a lot from Antonio Tessarin, he is friend of Euclides Marques and Luizinho 7 Cordas (great brazilian guitarists, Luizinho is the master of this era) and surely got lots of information from them about this instrument.

 

I just don't know about his price, but I imagine that it's something about what you have to spend.

Hi Vinivius

 

I know O brien guitars for a while now. I have never played one. But to be honest I do not like the sound from videos. Of course it does not mean a thing. I will definitely take a closer look if you like them.

Munhoz is also a good bet, it was the guitar Yamandu used in his first two CDs, if I'm not mistaken.

 

I have a 7-string guitar made by Antonio Tessarin, the one I used in the most recent videos I posted in this section, but I'm no professional player and no sound engineer, either. :)
