7 string Ibby Recommendation?

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a 7 string Ibby for me. I'm looking for something with a TOM bridge and at least a 27" scale neck, as I'd like to drop the guitar down a whole step to A standard.

Also, I'd like to keep the price around +/- $500.

Thanks.

You're not going to get any 7 string Ibanez with those specs.

Re: 7 string Ibby Recommendation?

If the TOM is a bigger requirement than the scale length, then try the APEX 2.
If it's not a huge deal and any fixed bridge will do, try the RGD7421. It has a 26.5" scale.
And if you feel like bumping your price range to about $1000, you can try and find an RG1077XL. It does have a trem though.

Or you can try and find an RG7421XL with has a 27" scale and a flat mount fixed bridge. And you can't beat that MIJ quality! They go for about $500-$600 but are pretty rare.

Closest I can think of to those specs is a Schecter C7 of sorts - Blackjack or Hellraiser, probably. 26.5", TOM bridge, two humbuckers. Clearly, it's not an Ibanez, but they're nice guitars.
