Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar Black

 
Simple no fuss controls and design, this affordable 7-string is a no-brainer addition to any guitarists regimen. Play some chunky low end riffs and you'll know immediately just why you must have 7. Two humbucking pickups power this sonic behemoth.

Magnificent Seven! featured

Sound I have been looking at the RG7321 for a few years now. On a quick trip to the music store today I noticed a new one with the new Gibraltar Standard bridge and decided to play it. It's now home on a guitar stand after a long day of playing.

The most shocking part of this guitar is that the stock pickups actually sound pretty good! Ibanez must be listening to us since there's basically a consensus that the old INF humbuckers suck. The new AH17 and AH27 pickups actually sound clearer. They do lack a bit of definition in the midrange with heavy picking but overall they're probably the best stock pickup I've heard on an Indonesian Ibanez.

The new Gibraltar makes this black beauty sustain NICELY! I own an RG7620 and wanted a fixed bridge with similar seven string growl with the advantages of a fixed bridge. Out of the box, the updated 7321 sounds good!


Action, Fit, & Finish It's a Wizard 2 and a seven string to boot so the neck feels a bit thicker. I think the 7602 was actually a tad thicker but the Wizard 2's 400mm radius and the binding makes this neck feel a bit boxier. It's still a sweet neck. I dig the 5-piece maple and walnut construction.

The new Gibraltar Standard feels MUCH better on the right hand than the Gotoh style fixed bridge. In the black finish it looks like the bridge is plastic. This made me a bit wary to buy but it looks to be made of metal. Time will tell how it lasts. I think it'll hold up nice.

The sliding trus rod cover is a great idea! Such a simple, yet very handy, idea!
The finish is black. It doesn't look like a great paint job but, hey, this is a $400 instrument. As much as I've railed against black in the past I may leave the aesthetics of this guitar as-is.


Reliability & Durability Being a fixed bridge and having put it through its paces a bit, I think I could rely on this guitar live.
As far as durability, time will tell.


Customer Support Haven't dealt with them on this particular model.


Liked about it 1. It's a fixed bridge 7 string. It growls! Even with the stock pickups!
2. It's light and comfortable.
3. It's an RG!


Didn't like It would be nice if they made a mahogany version of this guitar. Other color options would be nice too but black is pretty nice and fits this instrument.

If You Want a 7, Go Here First featured

Sound Nobody does the 7 better. Ibanez took the flag when they got in the market with their intro line to 7's. The sound is that which gives you a broad spectrum of tones and possibilities to familiarize you with the world of the plethura available. Huge low end and screaming highs give you the ability to mimic or create your own vinue. Only kick back is the pups could use an upgrade but are far above other entry level pups. Easily adjustable to your own preferences.


Action, Fit, & Finish Although I entered the Ibanez world via 7421, this is the revamped of the same guitar, with hardly and difference in construction and no difference in quality. This one, as all of my IB'z came straight outta the box ready to go straight on stage. You cannot compare with the intial factory setup and sound. Mine even came perfect pitch and strings pre-stretched. If you can find that without paying for it by custom shop or 1 off when it comes to that initial quality, let me know...seriously. Finish...perfect. Absolutely flawless (though black, not a single issue).


Reliability & Durability Still going strong 10 years into it and played daily. My most heavily played guitar and still no hardware or structure issues. It's an Ibanez. Enough said. If you buy one, chances are you will buy another...and another...


Customer Support Never had to contact them. Though through the vine I have heard anybody from Dealers on up the chain are very helpful. Especially Rich Harris @ ibanezrules.com


Liked about it Gave me the fever of the 7. It came as a fad and has stood strong through the years as a true tool of creation. If you want to make a statement, I believe it states something stronger now given it's history. Will not consider parting with mine. This guitar will be re-born as a project to keep and progress as I do. Tonality is still just as good today (yes,even with stock pups, etc.)


Didn't like This guitar was sent from above to me, nothing to dislike.

Good for first seven.

Sound Factory pickups were muddy and not very articulate. The body didn't resonate at all, which was a bit weird. No matter how hard I hit the strings I couldn't feel anything.. When i tapped the body, there was a sound like tapping a cardboard box. Not good. Maybe it was just bad individual. Anyway, I put on some SD blackout's seven string models and it didn't do much. It sounded nothing like one would expect, but I blame only this one guitar. Every other have resonated and thus sounded much better.


Liked about it Looks. Superstrat, 7 strings, black with rosewood.. What could possibly go wrong?

Playability. It was a nice player after all, neck was comfy and so on. Fret ends were nice.

It did fit quite well on my lap. After all, I like ibanez-shapes.

The price wasn't bad at all.


Didn't like wood quality on this particular guitar. It plainly sucked.

25,5" scale.. It works quite well, but I like schecter's 26,5 better.

Factory pups. Well, they were going to change anyway, so doesn't really matter.

Reliable Workhorse

Sound I owned a 7321 when they first hit the streets. It was a cherry fudge color or something like that. Really pretty paint job. I used this guitar on stage for almost 5 years gigging every weekend. I never broke a string, it always was ready to go! I even acted like an idiot one night and tried to twirl the thing around my neck. I had forgetting my strap-locks that night and my 7321 went flying off me and landed headstock-first to the carpeted ground of the stage. I thought for sure it was a gonner!! I picked it up and the guitar sustained no damage, not a paint chip, nothing. . . and was still in bloody tune. That's a Workhorse. . . and I learned my lesson that night. No bad guitar behavior after that night. one time lucky, so they say.


Action, Fit, & Finish It wasn't bad for the price of the guitar. The neck was fast. Paint looked good. Hardware was tough.


Reliability & Durability As stated above. Workhorse. If I needed another one I wouldn't hesitate to get one.


Customer Support I have not ever had to deal with Ibanez support.


Liked about it Cheap price, reliability for sure.


Didn't like The pickups were only so-so sounding. Could for sure use an upgrade to get them best sound out of it.

Great axe for anyone who want to try a Seven!

Sound Variety of sounds with the 2 hums and the 5-way switch. Pickups are great for stock pickups, sound great with high gain. I use this through my Marshall MG10KK practice amp, and sounds awesome on clean and high and low gain overdrive. This is great if you play metal and like low bassy riffs, especially tuned in ADGCFad (1 step down), instead of standard BEADGbe.


Action, Fit, & Finish Set-up was pretty good, just had to tweak string height just a tad. Everything else was just perfect.


Reliability & Durability Reliability? This axe is very durable, I dropped it and bumped it around in the past 10 months ive owned it, only to get small dents, but the finish still intact. I would definitely bring it to a gig with no backup.


Customer Support Never had to call cusomer support with this axe, nor any other of my Ibanez axes


Liked about it Neck is slim, wide and flat. The 5 pc. Maple/Walnut 24 fret neck with white binding just looks like it came off a higher-end axe. Nice pickups. Fixed bridge stays well tuned. 5-way switch offers many other tones.


Didn't like Low B string gets in the way sometimes. Only 1 finish option: Black. Low B goes out of tune quicker than the standard strings.
