Amazed by playability of 1999 S7420

Earlier this year I bought a used 1999 MIJ S7420 7 string saber with flame maple top. these were the so called 'limited' run sold at guitar center with wave inlays.

I just have to say that this guitar has one of the most comfortable 7 string necks. Also with a 0.56 gauge B string - still sounds clear and tight even for a 25.5" scale length which blew me away.

Is this the pinacle of 7 string necks as it blows my jcustom out of the water? Or are there similar guitars out there with just as comfortable 7 string necks?

I'm actually tempted to buy another one. Thats how much I love this guitar neck

Not really surprised... my 2000 RG7620 is unbelievably good, better than the JP7s and Universes I've tried when I was in the market for a 7, and playability is on par with my J Custom.

Have fun man!

thanks for that! I think Ibanez was at its best in the late 90's - early 2000's. I wish they could bring those neck designs back again.
