7 String advice please

So i'm thinking of getting a 7 string, and i'd like the advice of the experts on here as to what models to look for and which ones to avoid.
Basically, i'm looking for an Ibanez, NOT a Universe, as i want just a 2 humbucker pickup config, and i want it to have a locking trem.
So,
Which models are high quality?

Which models are suck quality?

Thanks!

I have an S7320... great value for money, fantastic mahogany tone and the ZR tremolo rules.

Re: 7 String advice please

try and find a cheap second hand 7620 or econd hand rg with pickups modified

I dont understand why Ibanez doesnt put better pickups on a prestige guitar

I am gonna change my bridge pickup on my rg1527 soon, its so disappointing when playing with a non versatile pickup

I heard the schecter C1-7 with seymour duncans is sweet

Definitely a great guitar, but the stock pickups are muddy. I was lucky enough to get mine for about $500 with the pickup upgrades. I have a DiMarzio Blaze in the neck and a D-Sonic in the bridge. It's just wonderful and I love it.

S7320 is good as well.

I have a 7620 (Royal Blue) with a BK Miracle man in the Bridge and a duncan Jazz in the neck and it sounds night and day from what it did with the stock pickups in there.
I had my tech strip the finish off of the back of the neck and oil it for me and now it's much easier to play.

7620 and 1527 are god choices. Also if you like the UV just not the middle pickup just get a pickguard model UV such as the UVBK and just replace the pickguard and get rid of the middle pickup.

"Worst" is not the right word to describe. Cheapest, rather - the RG7321 is a fantastic guitar for the price.

Agreed. I quite like my 7321. Sure, it's no Prestige, but it actually feels pretty good. Some of the hardware is a bit lacking...notably, the bridge pup leaves a bit to be desired (though I have no problem with the neck pup), and the stock tuners aren't very good, but it's probably the best-value "low-end" axe I've ever bought.
