Join the club lol, I've been wanting one of those for ages.

They actually Made a 7 string S a few years ago, but it was the old S trem, and only 22 frets, I hear they play well, and sell cheap on ebay.

Add me on the list..

Take the stupid Korn K7 off the market and put a s7 on. I really wonder how well those k7's actually sell. The same one has been on the shelf at Sam ash for a year now...

i think if it had have been released when Korn was in the prime of their popularity, the K-7 would have been much more popular. I just hope that the poor sales of the K-7 wont deter Ibanez from making more 7 string production lines.

i say, drop the k-7, and do an S-Series 7 string 24fret, and an anniversary UV77MC series!!! ha ha!

i have to disagree. you get much sweeter neck pickup tone on a 22-fret axe, since the neck pickup is closer to the two-octave harmonic at the 24th fret position.

you can also find the old 540S7 from 1991. it had the Lo Pro Edge, but they only made ~450 of them.

Ibanez hasn't even made a 24-fret S-series 6-string, so i wouldn't get your hopes up. Extending the neck would make it necessary to deepen the cutaways, which would throw off the visual and physical balance of the guitar.

What if you extended it the other way? Making it an extended scale-length as well as adding a couple frets.

I think you'd still end up making the guitar too neck-heavy.

This isn't necessarily true. Some people prefer the sound of 24 fretters. Myself included.

The "two octave harmonic position at the 24th fret" isn't a great argument... as soon as you fret a note, the whole theory goes out the window.

A better way to describe the tonal difference of the neck position pickup is that as you move the pickup further away from the bridge, the string's excursion from its rest position is greater. This generates greater energy as the string moves through the pickup's magnetic field. There are probably also more detectable overtones closer to the middle of the string, giving you a richer sound.
