When I first ordered my S 7420, I had never played a 7420. Just 7620's.
I had a feeling of hope that it was going to be Japanese made. I was right and I was happy. I think the guitar is well made aside from the TRS that well, it's not so bad I guess. A friend of mine who has an S 7420 also says they might be worth a little something because of the rarity. Who know's.
It's definately a great 7-string. I love that bubinga stripe down the neck too and surprisingly the neck is in between my 7620 and UV as far as smootheness in the finish. Not glossy but not nearly bare.

Re: 7420/7620 necks

The TRS is fine if you're not a Vai-esque divebomber. If you're a casual trem user, a TRS-equipped machine is fine... but if you abuse the tremolo, the TRS is not for you. I have an S470 with the 6-string Lo-TRS. It's fine, but it obviously can't handle the abuse my LPE/EdgePro equipped guitars can. I've heard many times that the OFR is a direct replacement for the TRS system, but I haven't tried it myself nor do I know of its stability once you perform the upgrade.

The 7420 I played was a great entry level guitar, but if I were looking long term, I'd go after a 7620 or UV. Those are professional-grade instruments with top-shelf hardware designed for stability when properly cared for.

Actually that sounds good. OFR replacing the TRS. I might have to look into that.

I have a 99 RG7620 and it has the one piece neck with no bubinga stripe. My RG1077XL has a bubinga stripe
