Final verdict on the RG1527

hi there folks great forum u guys have .Anyways i bought an ESP F 207 (7 string ltd)about a year back im pretty happy with it but i always knew that tho the guitar looks good ,it wudnt play too well.So now ive decided to invest in a 7 string which has much better playability.I searched quite a bit with only the following results:
Schecter omen 7
ibanez AX 7
Ibanez Rg 7321
Ibanez Rg1527
universe
K7

now i cant afford to pay more than 600$.Im really confused wat to do,i dont care about looks i just want a good solid guitar with great playability.Is the Rg 1527 really a good guitar and wat advantages does it have over the Rg7321 (playability wise).I also noticed that the strings on my F 207(Esp/ltd) always felt kinda ummm how shud i put it... kinda FLOPPY so i was wondering if thats the problem with my guitar or are all 7 string guitars like that.Thanks so much ... all ure opinions mean a lot btw i live all the way in pakistan so i cant test any guitar before buying it ,ill just order it thru the net. thanks

I bought an RG1527 a couple of weeks ago and I really like it. The neck is amazing! For the extra $200 above the 7321, you get a better quality neck, an Edge Pro 7 (vs EP II 7). If you're going to use the whammy at all, the better trem is certainly worth it. I already had a Jackson DR7 and the 1527 blows it away!

If your B string is floppy, you can always try a heavier gauge.

The 7321 has a fixed bridge....AFAIK there's no EPII 7.

Dude, would it kill you to type with a 4th grade grammar level? Seriously, it's annoying.

Oops, my bad!

I never played a 7620 to do a comparison, but the 1527 neck feels REALLY comfortable ('cause I think the 6 string Wizard necks are too thin). I was worried that the 1527 neck would be too thin, but it's perfect for me.

Schecter has a new extended scale 7-string out, called the C-7 Blackjack. A longer scale would help with the "floppy" issue, and the guitar retails for... tada! About $600. Check out musician's friend for C-7 Blackjack.

Plus, it comes stock with Seymour Duncans.

I've got a pretty decent close-up shot of my 1527. If anyone will host it, I'll be glad to put it up.
