Doesn't look bad at all. But I'm keeping my RG7321.

Re: Apex 2 pics !

I quite like it but you can see the lower build quality on it.The way the flat heel sticks out way further than it should and the neck fit etc.
Although you can't see it in these pics that Apex inlay sucks a bit too.

Think i'd be tempted to try the S7320 for the little bit extra it is.

I agree with JTM, you can see the cheap build quality a mile off. And that fretboard looks really dry...

Wouldn't mind picking one up on the second-hand market in a year or so.

Those pictures look really washed-out... I hope that's why they fb appears dry.

Re: Apex 2 pics !

Oh didn't you guys get the memo? Ibanez has decided to make shallow neck pockets.That way the fretboard sits a mile above the body. It's a new thing.

Featured exclusivley on newer, select, Ibanez guitars. :P

What a bunch of tards.

^ Lol, yes I do recall that particular memo, and the steam that emanated from my ears as a result.

I do like the color. I'd rather have the double locking trem, myself.

Agreed.

It looks poorly made/constructed just from the pics. I can almost imagine what it would feel like when you pick it up too. I'm sure they could play quite nicely with a setup and adjusting bits here and there.

I dunno. A great idea on paper, and the whole design looks nice. The MII thing really is downer. Even if the price is great.
