The RG7321 is designed to be an affordable alternative to the higher-end 7 string guitars out there. This axe was created to ensure that anyone could get into playing an extended range guitar, and the results are promising. Due to the price, one could expect that there are no fancy frills, but there are some nice touches - the rosewood fingerboard is bound, for instance, and the neck is a 5 piece design of maple and walnut. Much of the guitar's sustain capabilities are due to the Gibraltar Standard 7 bridge, which is a substantial bridge design, and it has no sharp edges or corners, making palm muting very comfortable.


This guitar sounds nice for the price! The pickups are a touch on the muddy side, but they still offer some good warmth and power. With that low B string, the guitar rumbles the whole stage! This obviously is designed with hard rock and metal in mind, and it does that very well.


This is a good entry-level 7. If budget is a big consideration when choosing a 7-string guitar, this is a great idea. It is just inexpensive enough to be in reach for most, and yet a good enough quality to offer a real playing experience. I wouldn't try to get any 7-string that is cheaper than this one, as the lowest end 7s have awful fretwork for most of the companies out there.
