Hatsubai's review"Cooler looking than the RB"

Ibanez RG1527
Ibanez has pretty much always been the leader in the seven string world. My first seven string experience was a bit woeful, but given how much I like Ibanez, I decided to give it another go. This guitar is pretty much the same as the later model 7620s with the major difference being the 5 piece neck on the 1527 and Edge Pro vs Lo Pro. The body is still a basswood body, and the fretboard is still a rosewood fretboard. Just like the 7620, the 1527 comes in an HH configuration.

UTILIZATION

One of the best things about Ibanez is the ability to get super low action and easy access to the higher frets. The all access neck joint and cut out lower horn make it feel almost as if there's no neck joint at all. Everything on my guitar was put together nice, but the electronics were the weak point. The stock pickups are pretty bland, and the stock switch is somewhat low quality. The pots aren't terrible, but there are better ones out there.

SOUNDS

Given how bland the stock pickups sound, I immediately replaced them with an Air Norton 7 and Evo 7. The guitar really came alive then. The Evo 7 keeps everything nice and tight, and the Air Norton 7 gives a wonderful lead tone. I replaced the standard 5 way switch with a 3 way that has the inner coils split to give me that John Petrucci style setup. LIke most of my guitars, I disconnected the tone knob as I rarely use them. If you dislike basswood guitars, you'll probably dislike this. It has that typical basswood midrange going on, and some people hate that. I think basswood sounds awesome for lead tones as everything seems to stay smooth and fairly linear.

OVERALL OPINION

Those looking for a seven string should just skip on the budget trash and seriously check out the Ibanez guitars. The thinner neck makes it easier to get used to the low B, and the MIJ Prestige factory's fretwork usually cranks out consistently good quality fretwork. I have no problems getting ~1/32'' @ the 12th fret.

Djo63's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good 7 strings"

Ibanez RG1527
It is a model in Prestige Ibanez made in Japan with a Floyd Rose Ibanez Edge Pro 7. There are 24 frets and 2 double and V77 V87 brand Ibanez.
There is a 5-way switch and a volume + tone.

UTILIZATION

The neck is deemed to be flat (even with a string of added IF ^ ^).
Ibanez sleeves are quick to play but there is a time of adjustment on it. The guitar is well proportioned and access to acute is very easy.
In terms of sound, I would say it is correct. Try it on a lamp to see what the microphones are worth.
The use of Floyd is simple but you must know how it works.

SOUNDS

This guitar is versatile with microphones but is still metal type (SI requires serious ^ ^)
The sound is not as defined as the DiMarzio / Seymour or even EMG but Ibanez has put microphones in good qualities.
After having tried a Laney LC30, Marshall JVM we notice that the pickups are ok.

OVERALL OPINION

I use for almost six months it is always a feast for the ears when the SI comes into action. A small downside to the definition of sound with the original pickups but, I repeat, it is correct.

The neck is really nice, fine and fast (No soucy for shredders).
To have found OCCAZ at a price more than interesting I do not susi annoyed at all the shovel.

A counselor and / or to try!

Shad-xt-'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez RG1527
The description is already been given

UTILIZATION

I use it for playing speed metal thrash death
I give myself a lower tone so | the | re | Floor | do | F | the | re |
Had swelled the rope of .056 was .011 to put the hyper floyd use Extremely stable
the rest I could not fault this guitar is very versatile even with the use that I made

SOUNDS

Rate sono I asseiller a universe with DiMarzio Blaze II 2006 and it sounds fucking better than pick up the original 1527 that n'on done nothing wrong but upgrate possible in the future: /

OVERALL OPINION

J'aurrait still really nice if the choice to do for a 7-string I n'esiterai not 33ms;)

warlockman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez RG1527
Japanese guitar
24 jumbo frets, humbucker Ibanez splitable
Floyd rose type bridge (edge ​​pro 7)
One volume knob and Tone with a 5-way switch
Ultra-Channel 7 5units saddle and wenge
Basswood body
Black Paint Glitter Silver

UTILIZATION

I find the handle very pleasant (at the same time I played a Warlock before) and although it is a 7-string, which implies a wider neck, there is very fine. Ibanez handle anything!
Access to treble is fairly easy but I am more used to run through so it's a little harder but not too much
This guitar is shaped strata, like it or not, and very important is not so heavy that ca
We get the sound you desire a relatively easy provided you have an amp that makes sense also

SOUNDS

I play all styles so I find it very versatile
I play with a marshall 100dfx and the sound is very well structured it does when you start a pure distortion of the sound is very well defined one can have crystal clear sound and a fat knob in a movement that is very pleasant. In addition to the posibilit split the pickups were even more Large selection of his

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using 2semaines bought new in Paris, I tried other models of 7-string before taking it because it's the only one who is looked upon as high-end possess a floyd. The report qualitprix is ​​extra, I do it again this choice in a heartbeat
So if you hesitate with other instruments I highly recommend it

Leulapin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez RG1527
Japanese guitar, 24 frets, two humbuckers, floyd rose, Volume / Tone neck ibanez prestige.

Does everything said by others, CHARACTERISTICS are good considering the price.

UTILIZATION

Handle jumbo frets and enjoyable plutt end guitar that can balance a little play in any position prs.

Violin and electronic sound, able to go on the road without problem.

SOUNDS

Sound cold and acute nazillards the "ibanez". From classic to the brand for the heat and the snoring will require looking at gibson plutt

Fits well for the trs mtal, versatile and relatively comfortable on other styles, the clean sounds are crystal clear and also prcis.

Mesa boogie triple plays and pod.

Since I bought a Vigier Excalibur, the sound is twice as good but the price is three times the lev. The more it is a good instrument for its price.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since 2004, I like his overall balance, flexibility and quality-General for the instrument. In recent months she serves as backup if ptag guitar string.

What I like least is the lack of sustain li largely floyd rose and locking the strings at the top of sleeve. Also the lack of rumble in the mediums that is typical of Ibanez and makes the game a little smoother (no need to attack the strings) to less drafts of strings far too important to play fluid (like pulling 68 If in the grave).

I had one before 1077XL, less flexible but better for downtune, not the same type of instrument.

Excellent quality price, in this range ibanez plutt is unbeatable on the seven strings of quality not too expensive. There are plenty of good opportunities as the seven strings are a bit out of fashion.

Looking back I do it again this choice Whereas for much better off guitar maker you have to buy a music man or pettrucci Vigier Excalibur and the price then Exceeds 3000

For someone who has the resources you need to type directly in this high-end 'industry' as if it really even better than the Ibanez 1527.

rehal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez RG1527
-Japan
-24 Frets
-Floyd Rose tremolo
5-way switch-
Trs-round dish

UTILIZATION

Channel trs enjoyable for a 7-string
Access in acute-trs good too
Trs-good ergonomics (can be a bit heavy)
Small-BMOL for paint is easily damaged, the slightest shock will paint a CLAT
yes, we get a good sound quickly trs.

SOUNDS

I used it first for the mtal and now I do everything with it has a range of sounds rglages trs wide (Tone 5-way switch that allows micro spliter)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 7 years (guitar bought in 2000, having already had a few guitars, I do not think this one Spar me one day, I would do without this choice problem.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez RG1527
So a few useful details:
slimline handle. (But broad, since 7-string)
a 5-way switch that allows the microphone splitter
Otherwise all is said.

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice but it lacks the polish that still remains the best of me.
Very good ACCET to treble the heel box appears at the 18th, but for the 24 or 23rd it is still harder.
It is not so heavy as that.
Ergonomics, must love the shape.
And yes we get the right sound easy.

SOUNDS

I use it for metal. I had some problems at first because the strings had a weak tyrant, but now that I have a 10-59 badly it sounds better. I just take the 1:30 into the store to change the strings and replace the floyd ...

The floyd is very precise and very good, it is pretty well shot, there's way to have a wide variety of sounds in the clear (as there is a 5-way switch and one tone knob very precise, it was a very, very wide range of sounds).

distortion in this lacks a bit of character but it's not so bad.

Treble give really good.

OVERALL OPINION

I play it for 6 months.
I do not have much experience in the world of 7 string guitar or floyd ... (And yes we can not know everything)
I think I would choose maybe a viper 407 in place ... must see ... The vibrato causing problems to change the strings, but hey that's me who loves less. if you like vibrato, you'll love.

Korneo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez RG1527
Made in Japan.
24 Frets, micro Ibanez V77 V87 in neck and Ibanez in easel.
Edge Pro 7 tremolo.
1 volume, 1 Tone slecteur 5 positions.
Channel U type prestige, rosewood fingerboard.
Basswood body.

UTILIZATION

Trs enjoyable round for a 7 string that a larger millimtre a treble at K-7 o Ibanez UV 777 from home.
Despite this Access in acute is very easy, a good guitar for all shredeurs herb prfrant the 7-string. Channel trs fast and enjoyable to touch and sight.
RG typically forms with sharp horns trs, body not too grazing.
A wide strap is prfrable because bte PSE infrieure weight but still that of a Les Paul (Word connaiseur).
Acute and mdium but serious enough prcis all of the same rough enough unless you have a strong rope to pull a standard tuning. Personally I am in Mount 11-54 over a 58 Si and the sound is clean trs.

SOUNDS

Personally I play a lot of Korn and trs well be my requirements despite the lack of micro DiMarzio. It should play well for trs all types of music.
I play it for 1 year 1 / 2 of a BER Mtal religious Line 6 amp Roland Cube 15, I find it shuffled its great thanks, it should have done my style music. I test on a triple rectified Mesa / Boogie and I can tell you that the sound is just incredible.
I RULES leaving my pedals Mdiums 12 and I put the bass and treble bottom.
Submitted punch and treble is also, I find no other rglage that I like as much. Cot's clear, put the slecteur in the middle you get a sound close to the non-saturated guitar in "Master of Puppetz" by Metallica.
I do dtest no sound on this guitar, even if I am not a fan of frenzied solos, I think it is pretty good in this area.
Rectification on 13/12/2006: APRS weeks of intensive work to raise my level solo, I find the treble too loud and quite ugly, I think after a change of micro (Seymour Duncan TB6 7-string 7-string + SH6) all fall into place.

OVERALL OPINION

As I said dja I use it for 1 1 / 2 years and I love it.
The particular feature I like most is to have the look in parallle with sound.
What I like least is the painting which, although pretty trs in black finish paillets'caille immediately and trs is fragile. The slightest touch causes a hole in painting. It unfortunately does not sell more black since 2005.
I regret that there is the head of the WRITING "Prestige" and not "V" significant brand.
Before buying it I tried a Peavey TR7, a Conklin 7-string and a Squier. They are a great level infrieure this Ibanez.
The report qualitprix is ​​acceptable, I just wish that for 700 is not put the "V" on the head and a painting worthy of the name itself.
APRS all this time I think in this price range, I n'achterait any other guitar. For the most demanding, I advise chang micro EMGs for type o DiMarzios Tone Zone or Evolution.

Hypnosis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez RG1527
"I test this guitar in music store on the corner, made in Japan.

-24 Frets finally all the tricks of the regular guitar, no change from the beginning.

Pink Floyd-trs friendly if not extremely enjoyable!

UTILIZATION

The guitar as a whole is enjoyable trs, a pearl! For the price it is frankly a great investment, no problem for Access in acute form the Ibanez is very well, I do not like these type flying V guitar for inconfortabilit in sitting position, I play a lot sitting, so it's a form trs fits my type of game

SOUNDS

Diffrent the modulations of sound with the switch is more than enough, its pretty hot in clean and well stocked with crunch!
Biensr you need a good amp with, but even on a low end amp it sounds dj thousand times better than the storm or the stagg.
I played on Laney amps (head pramp lamp 120 watts, 250 watts speaker pan shot). The only thing to say to her, it is good dj trs original invoice but a Tone Zone and Air Norton I guess it should be more than great!

OVERALL OPINION

Trs good value qualitprix
Color varnishes beautiful!
I have tried many other models of Ibanez, but also PRS, Jackson, Lag, Cort, Gibson, G & L. ..
