    Then what would make it different from a Dellinger 7? 27 frets?

    Interesting, no one is b*tching about the 24.75" scale on an Angelus HGS where it goes to A or lower.
    The only thing that has to be "adjusted" is the bridge to be HGS type for the intonation and then you will have no issues with the shorter scale.

    There are many of us who would love to have a short scale 7 string.
    If you change the scale to longer one, then it ain't no Horus anymore but a TAT Special (bolt-on) which makes no sense

    Bang on the money. I'm more than happy for a shorter scale 7stringer. Love the short scale on the horus!

    *or on a Horus HGS....

    The point is, the B tuning for Horus already exists in production for this scale, so it would make no difference putting up a high E string to it. If the HGS Hori with this tuning is loved by so many, the 7 Hori would be loved by even more.
