I've been looking to purchase a 7-string for quite some time. Ibanez has been making them longer than anyone. I have owned several Ibanez models in the past and always very pleased with them. I was actually looking for a Universe but just couldn't justify paying that kind of money just for the "extras" it has. After several weeks of searching I finally found what I needed on Ebay. I purchased from LM Music in Chatanooga, TN for around $550. What a deal!
I actually like my purchase more than I expected. Needed a guitar that could do it all...not a whole arsenal of guitars cluttering up my small home...Needed a 7-string...couldn't pay much money...The transition from 6 to 7-string was very easy. The 7-string neck actually feels more comfortable to play. I tried several different brands of 7-strings but felt most comfortable with the Ibanez line. The Dimarzio pickups sound incredible. The wiring and choices of different sounds allows me to get just about any sound imaginable...EXACTLY what I was looking for. Wasn't really positive about the VK finish, but when I opened that case up for the first time I threw all doubts aside. Pictures don't do it justice.
None better! I've owned them all at one time or another...Les Pauls, Strats, Teles, Jacksons, Hamers, BC Richs...None comes close to the Ibanez.
Exactly what I was looking for. Transition from 6 to 7 string was painless. Sold all my 6 strings. This is the only guitar I own now. It does averything I need it to.
Made in japan, Floyd, 5-position and 2 humbuckers. I've customized with a crunch and a Lab7 LiquiFire and a 3 position selector ... 1 volume knob and tone 1potard ... Extra thin flat neck and ibanez known in 24 cases with
Super soft and comfortable handle, light weight and rather form and allows a secure and easy access to acute. Sends sound base. But I have desired configuration has petrucci and we feel a radical change c is accurate even if it spits with much more open sound than original.
Style rock, metal so perfect. Used on line 6 spider valve hd 100 hd 500 pod and custom. Necessarily mine sounds quickly petrucci has a few notes (j on the other hand not have his hands ) the clean and crunch is excellent and accurate joining!
First new guitar with a quality / price excellent time € 800 al ...
J Jackson hesitated with Kelly in 6 or 7 string ibanez in ... And being influenced by many bands playing 7-string al time (korn, fear factory, dream theater) I made this choice I would do with a little Kelly with lol!

Chris Martins's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in Japan. Channel two octaves, two double (changed as soon as possible for a tone zone and air norton 7 7) which compltement opened the guitar sound a little too smooth with dimarzios home. The lo-pro edge into the agreement without flinching, the five positions are really varied and the handle is played alone with a super low action when properly rgl and without a frieze in all directions. ..
Lgre for a 7-string, Access in acute and very easy control of the total. But it's not a Les Paul, it does not play for you and you have to move things with your guitar playing. But once it is made, difficult to return anything
The five sounds are trs typical of the brand ... trs soft crystalline and split trs dynamic prcis in duplicate on saturations. Crunches are the same soft or aggressive depending on your games and hardware. It is not necessary, and allows all with his own voice.
In three years I had more and more difficult to ask it to play my other guitars (including a custom Warmoth, a Start, a Les Paul, another Ibanez 6-string (570 climbs Dimarzios) .. .). The 7th string is really a gift when seeking encoreplus versatility and expressiveness. The ratio Q / P is even better now that prices have dropped a little and the violin is at the top. Today I do not play on it and it is on all the tracks in BMD of my group and our new album due out late 2004.
- Made in Japan 99
- 7 strings
- Floyd-like Lo-Pro Edge 7 bridge
- 24 frets
- Basswood body
- DiMarzio (Humbucker) handle
- DiMarzio (humbucker) bridge
- Color: Galaxy Black
The handle is enjoyable but trs trs Obviously because of the large 7-string.
Access in acute is very simple, probably as simple as a strat-type guitar.
The shape resembles that of a stratum with sharp edges.
This gives excellent sound quality as the ds serious pr play power chords, treble that ds, pr arpge play.
The sound of the RG7-620 are exactly the style of music I play (metal, neo-metal ...). The sounds of power chords are powerful trs (Dimarzio forces) and the clean sounds (treble particulirement ds) st crystal trs.
The sound chgent normment depending on whether one places the 'pickup' of such (s) or that (s) mic (s).
This is probably the best 7-string guitar that exists today. This does not mean it has no rival srieuses (formerly of Jackson 7-string MODELS US).
We must be careful cepdt avt to buy a guitar such as:
- Everybody is not comfortable with 7 strings ds fingers
- Even if it is quite polivalente, we can not all play.
- Must be accustomed with the SETTING THE floyd
Avt to buy it, I tried the RG7-320, the 420 and Jackson 7-string. Suffice to say right away that The models 320 and 420 do not st trs good quality. Has the difficulty of the Ibanez dpartager of Jackson.
I certainly do it again if no choice of nv MODEL RG7 (high end) did not go out.
