MGR/Kris Schleiermacher (ForeverSilent004)'s review"Ibanez RG7420"

Ibanez RG7420 [2000-2002]
well for my 16th bday i got some cash and put it towards a new guitar... the ibanez rg7420. this is the same model as dino cazarez uses from fear factory, and head and munky of korn. it really is an amazing guitar. i had only played 6 strings, so at first the wider neck was a lil akward, that changed quick though with practice. the pickups are powerful, neck is really slim, body is pretty light, and the black pearl finish is really sweet. i got it for 600 (new) with the uv1000 case at a local shop, alto music in middletown, ny. www.altomusic.com

the neck is slim and fast making the transition from a 6 to 7 real easy.

the ONLY thing i dont like is the bridge. its a licenced floyd rose. when changing strings, you have to cut off the ball on the string and secure the string by a lil block in the bridge. strings can come out if you dont tighten it enough, but you dont want to strip the screw. you just have to bea real causcious, and have more time to fool with it.

the body is made of basswood, so its pretty light and its real nice to hold. its real sturdy and makes you feel powerful.

ibanez: the greatest 7 string maker today! get one!

MGR/RampanT's review"Ibanez RG-7420 7-String"

Ibanez RG7420 [2000-2002]
I bought the Ibanez rg-7420 7 string guitar from Allan’s Music Melbourne, but had it sent from Adelaide. The Price of the guitar was originally $1599 but I got it at a price of $1199, I bought the guitar because a 6 string wasn’t enough, being in a band that plays Metallica covers but also our own brand of Metal that cannot be replicated on a six string.

The Ibanez 7-string is a beast of a guitar, It was surprisingly easy to change over from a six string to a seven string, It's Black Pearl (metallic) colour looks awesome in the light and doesn’t attract finger prints like a solid black colour does, Its Floyd Rose Tremolo setup is perfect for a low profile bridge, The tuning I use is standard six string tuning but instead of having the low string as (B) I have it tuned to an (A) leaving the fine tuner for the low (A) almost unwound so if needed I can tune it back to (B) by just winding it back up again. The thin wizard style neck makes for smooth playability and comfort and looks cool with the two different kinds of wood at the back. I use a (D.O.D) Death Metal Distortion Pedal, Boss digital delay pedal and a Dime Bag C.F.H along with a GA-100 Ashton Amp and Quad Box and this guitar sounds absolutely "MASSIVE".
I also like the fact that “Dino” from Fear Factory, and both “Munkey” and “Head” from Korn have used this guitar in past recordings.


The V7 and V8 Pickups are great pickups for the Ibanez 7-string but I may have to replace them with the Di-Marzio evolution 7 pickups, this is not a necessity just a personal preference.

The quality of the rg7420 is immaculate and a top class guitar for the price, but there are just two things that demean this product and that is its input connection and also a faulty volume control. It has a newer style of input being that it has a weaker spring that holds the lead in, thus making the lead fall out continuously, so I modified it by replacing the old connection with a Mic input connection. With the volume control, it tends to crackle through the amp when it's turned on low but Im sure these are rare problems going by the quality of Ibanez products.

This guitar I would recommend to any one who likes detuned guitars but still likes playing old riffs such as the likes of Metallica, Pantera, ACDC, etc. because there is no need for tuning your guitar down and getting a lesser sound quality. This guitar suits any genre of music really, from the likes of Metal musicians to jazz and funk etc.; the rg7420 covers a wide range of music and is the perfect guitar for anyone.

Another minor fault is in the volume control, it tends to crackle through the amp when it's turned on low.

Tophe2014's review

Ibanez RG7420 [2000-2002]
Made in Japan
7 strings came with V7/V8 pickup
3 pieces neck with bubunga strip
24 ftres XL
Lo TRS 2 Tremolo

UTILIZATION

Easy to play for a 7 string guitar

SOUNDS

The stock sound lack treblle, and bottom end, and also output. You need to change the Pick up to enjoy it.
There is no premium wood also, so you can go for Seymour Duncan or EMG. It will transform this guitar radically.

OVERALL OPINION

It is a OK guitar.
