    short by comparison,

    * The dean is FAR rc7g front (custom shop usa)
    Schecter hellraiser C7 * the fact that the best ibanez Moitiers for the price! Great Value ....

    I board the impression that it is lighter than the previous set of K7.
    Mine is still fairly new and I board has just begun to settle the way I like it already sounds better than my old K7.
    In any case if the amp is up this config is good, neither too much nor too little.

    SOUNDS

    I play mostly metal on a rack and Mesa is perfect.
    In my compound which I prefer is the clean sound is very deep (remaining crystalline) thanks to the tuning between autre.Mais serious it is very promising disto, I find it more accurate than my old K7.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for only one week but already I board an old model K7.
    This is exactly the same pattern of change outside of vibrato etc ... it does not make the same feeling, but I think it is a winner over the old. (But close)
    What I like is that the main config that does the right thing and not 15 buttons which uses jamais.D the other hand it uses really very good performance of my amp and gives a very good sound directly. (can be harder on an amp entry level)
    I board already played on many of the 7-string and so far it's my favorite (well ahead of the Universe in any case and I tried almost a 10aine ais)
    The value price is right for this quality.
    I board buy that for a second second K7 7-string And because I like the finisher and I do not see anything ravi.Je a fault it is precisely my expectations and my tastes.

    UTILIZATION

    Inspiration is deeply stratode (or even superstratode): pitch, body shape with bevels ergonomic ACCS ais acute due to the deep cut sides, ...
    Rsultat: comfort including the handle off yet (7 strings).
    The weight? Trs content.
    The only difficulty getting used to the game 7-string.
    The U bar (whammy bar U-shaped with two anchor points on the block vibrato) is more useful anecdotal, but it's part of the exclusivity of the MODEL. Excellent agreement with the edge pro tremolo.
    In two words: ergonomic trs.

    SOUNDS

    Korn is a signature guitar, so its a heavy trs, trs atmosphre a serious and somber music trs. Not for the pop ballad. Adding that the two guitarists of Korn branch (there are only Munky, Head both sides in a mystical DLIR) in a head Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier! The trs trs heavy!
    So what about small amps in our living room? The low output pickups make the sound of an amp dcevant modest power and inquitant characters sound of Korn are absent. But connecting an amp pluttpchu lamps (I possde a combo Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb 50 Watt single correct and a Marshall 100 watt combo JVM410) things back to normal .. . and the guitar is fully expressed: powerful bass register, its heavy and oppressive.
    Note: 1 potentiomtre volume, no potentiomtre of Tone. Therefore little versatility.
    Total: 7 / 10 because you have to plug it into an amp "high gain" to find high quality sound we were looking into buying it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - Pros: the quality of manufacturing and exemplary finish, the exclusivity of the MODEL (table, inlay, 7 strings), ergonomics;
    - Cons: Requires a high end amp "high gain" to express themselves fully, not versatile.
    Total: I will 7 / 10. I love this guitar but its use is restricted trs. In troisime choice (or more) for fans of Korn (if you prfrez Slipknot, go for the Ibanez 7-string team of Seven EMG: sounds sharper but colder).

    UTILIZATION

    7-string guitar.
    However the handle is super enjoyable, it takes a little getting used to and then think even more that it is a 7-string.
    Very easy to play.
    Access in acute trs is good. except maybe on the 7th rope unless you have large fingers.
    Guitar trs balanced. It's weight, but not too heavy.
    Its a matter is complicated a bit!
    You need to have good stuff ... Indeed, the microphones do not have an output level of extraordinary ... So for the big distortion c fairly difficult to be mostly on amp not top top.
    But it delivers good sound, well balanced and even qd powerful, low trs sound well, too acute. Really beautiful sound!
    The only big problem is the output level microphones ...

    I wanted to highlight the presence of a tremolo floyd.
    It is super efficient and do not scratch Disagree, only problem, rgler vibrato takes a long time ...

    SOUNDS

    Ben is suitable styles of music, it fits! biensur a scratch in the signature Korn and more you say it's not for the bagpipes!
    So at first we sent the big sound! but the ease of play and versatility of microphones used to address a lot of other things ...

    ben I play have no effect on an all-tube engl ritchie blackmore couple has a baffle celestion V30 engl.

    then branch on this type of amp and scratches that ben sent! to compensate for the low output pickups. Large distortion of good! greasy but remain prcises.
    The sound is full, round and defined.
    As I clean hearts! kills in a crunch!

    Then I test on a mashall, not for the metal ... ben pfffffff is not the same! the guitar is not as punchy! we feel the weakness of microphones ... and avoids the metal and palm mutes. Too bad!

    I love everything about my Engl!
    ben marshall on all but the saturation is not saturated enough.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Ben and I had it for a Journe ... but I jou many times I can say that was 6 months that I play!
    She looks deadly! the texture of the body is a beautiful Russianness!
    the bending of the handle is beautiful too trs.
    This is a guitar that is very easy to play and that fits all styles of music!

    You just have the hardware adquate it!
    Before trying this guitar I had the opportunity to try Mayones 7-string guitars are excellent but the handling was more dlicate t for me. That's why I turned to the Apex 1. I'm not. Maybe in a more or less near future I'll change the pickups but for now there's no harm!

    The ratio quality price is a bit lev.
    Before buying it I had six months of testing so I had enough perspective to the acqurir, yes I do it again this choice hh!

    I use it in ADGCFAD tuning.
    I find it hard to adjust the floyd, and I would have preferred a neck-through.

    UTILIZATION

    One can find in this guitar the characteristics of Ibanez prestige namely a handle very nice, comfortable and quite slippery.

    Access to acute is easy even for the last rope to the little that is not too small fingers. This guitar offers a good compromise in terms of weight fairly light and well balanced, however, has a mahogany body and maple neck. I was pleasantly surprised by playing the first time.

    Access to acute is easy even for the last rope to the little that is not too small fingers. This guitar offers a good compromise in terms of weight fairly light and well balanced, however, has a mahogany body and maple neck. I was pleasantly surprised by playing the first time.

    To the sound is a bit trickier, I initially tested this on a Fender guitar hybrid, great for the clean sound, bluesy or jazzy, it was a joke ... The sound was obviously devoid of power, and mediocre.

    I then tested on an engl fireball with a mesa cab V30, and I make sure I understood what it was that his powerful, precise, and thick.
    The pickups are low output, it requires us to not play on anything like material (the base is still a signature of Munky, I think that not playing on low gain amp, or on marshall MGDFX 50). I find this regrettable.
    However, with proper equipment, it really butchered.

    One volume knob, personally this is what I prefer, after it removes some potential for some lesser being ... A three position switch complete the sound settings.
    It is noted that these two elements are at hand, convenient for quick changes.
    To access the floyd must, as always screwed a plate on the back of the guitar. That's when the one that realizes the accuracy of the floyd, but also of its very high sensitivity setting too careful.
    It should be noted that it is not necessary to cut the balls to change the strings (useful when one has forgotten his cutter in concert).

    Very good performance tuning.
    Good grip, even if it takes some time to adapt to regain its bearings from the six strings.

    SOUNDS

    This guitar is rather predestined to use metal, even if it is doing in other areas (I am not able to give too much mediocrity in my opinion having regard to the latter), I think she can s to escape, but it is far from what can come out a guitar of this price in 6 strings (other than for the metal).
    In the metal I find really amazing. She can really lend itself to a lot of style. The wood provides a deep sound, rich bass without a well-rounded record 'boiled', the treble is crystalline, without being aggressive (note: it is not a strato either), and subsain is guaranteed (although provided Failure by the microphones).
    Namely I tested with a Hellraiser with EMG 85 / 7, to return to the same saturation level with the apex of I mount the volume pot to see gain of 2 3.

    However, these pickups are in my taste much more interesting: the sound is already warm, they respect the nuances of fine games. The PM is very clean for the little that is not 100% low pre-amplification. In terms of sounds, it always depends on the hit, but you can really play anything.

    I play on a Peavey 5150 II coupled to an H & K V30, mostly the Post-Core, a little math core, and some death core, in all these styles they ring of hell. Can be found by far the sounds to Meshuggah, the Front, Suicide Silence, Texture, (without of course have the same ^ ^).

    Try it on a big config, to really understand its value and performance.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year or so, and I think not at all to change.
    This guitar sounds really good if you have the stuff that follows behind.
    I regret that it is equipped with a Floyd, because I think what is very boring for little.
    I've tested a K-7, a Universe, a Jackson (€ to 1000 model equipped with an EMG 85 / 7) and a Schecter Hellraiser 7 and the K APEX1 are very close, but a little APEX1 best in terms of weight, and precision of sound (if you like fiddling). The Universe is excellent but a bit more for a game for finer and more free style.
    THE Schecter is monstrous but it was not what sound I wanted.

    The jackson was far below.
    I find the correct value for money is remake that choice, because I'm not over, however.
    I think it will suit people who want to buy a 7 string, of good quality, which has quite a good compromise.
