Talking

Man...I love a good THREESOME!!




Yep...





Ibanez Apex 1 Customs. My wife bought me my first one, and I've loved them ever since! They are noticeably different from the K7, which I also had a pair of. The K7 was a lot more like a 7620 in terms of the neck, where the Apex has a bit more "dish" to it - slightly more round. It sounds just a bit "deeper" too - the K7's were a tad more bright & raw.

Anyway, due for a group pic update, so enjoy!

This is not helping my itch for a seven string.
Which is bad because 6 strings is too much for me.

Anyone tell you you cause gasssssssssssssssss.

Really curious about those Apex's. I've always wanted to play one and have come close to grabbing one off the 'bay a few times. I like that finish a lot too.

The finish is definitely cool. The neck is a little different - more like the Prestige lines than RG, in that I've always thought the Prestige necks seemed a little more burly by comparison.

I was wondering about that... as well as the necks on the K7's. I had read a K7 review somewhere and the neck was described as "feeling a bit thicker" than other Ibby 7-string necks, but I've never played one to confirm.

I'd describe the maple neck on my 2011 RG1527M as "a bit beefier" than other 7-string Ibby necks I've played... so I wonder if the Apex has the same neck profile as the later 1527's.

I've always said that if I buy another Ibby 7, it will be an Apex or K7. I love the idea of a mahogany RG.

The K7 & Apex necks are different. The K7 to my hands, was almost the same as an RG7620. I really liked the K7. A lot. But I'm very fond of the Apex too, to the point that I almost prefer it.
