A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Music Store...(NGD!)

If you have seen my soon to be ngd, then you are aware that I have a RG3250 in DY on the way from rich @ ibanez rules. I was going to sell my current guitar to a friend of mine who's a music merchant. Well, I was on my way out of the music store, cash in hand, when I spy a RG7420 on the wall for 50 dollars more than what I got for my peavey. I take it off the wall and play it. It was the first 7 string I've ever played, and I fell in love. A few negotiating moments later, I walked out guitar in hand. Well, can't blame me for wanting two ibanez, can ya? Pics to follow.

Here's my collection of electrics. My camera is finicky, and i'm not the best photographer, but enjoy anyway!

I think people unfairly dismiss the RG7420 as low quality. I think it's a solid workhorse. The construction on my RG7420 was top notch---great neck and fretwork, good tone once I put in Dimarzio pickups. The trem is not as smooth as an Edge, though, and the saddles are a bit soft, but it gets the job done. The Lo-TRS trem is made in Japan, by the way.

Oh, and nice collection!

Thanks! Yeah, I'm thinking of getting some work done on the 7 string, maybe a Floyd Trem, mod it to look like a UV7PWH, one of my fav UVs.

Nice score. Cool guitar that. The RG3250 is killer looking as well.

Nice find man with no cash out of pocket I assume??

I'm a fan of the 7420 myself. It's a solid guitar in it's original form and a great base for modding. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!!

BTW..... I like the PWH idea.

Re: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Music Store...(NGD!)

I have an MIJ RG470 with the Japanese Lo-TRS and it's a solid trem. It stays in tune just as well as any of my Edge equipped RG's. The only complaint I could make is that it's a little bit stiffer feeling than an Edge.

Changing it out for anything other than an Edge has never even crossed my mind, a Floyd or a Gotoh wouldn't be much of an upgrade IMHO...

Wow, I remember those Traveling Wilburys guitars in an 80's JC Penney catalogue.

Hah, yeah its display only. I found it used for 50 bucks, figured it'd look good on my wall. I'm a fan of the band, anyway

Now it's one of those internet gems that I otherwise had totally forgotten about. I was about 10 or 12 then and I had never heard of them, but was amazed to know that so many famous rockers were in a group together with changing members, which was a new and strange concept to me like when I found out VH was named after its guitarist rather than front man. There was a red super strat in the catalogue that I wanted so bad, but I ended getting a charvette locally.

Anyway, thanks for letting me reminisce, congrats on the new ibby!

Nice Ibbys! Had a 7420 myself a while ago with an Evo in the bridge and a Air Norton in the neck, loved it! Miss that one...wasn't that a good idea to sell it back then but well, congrats on yours!!
