Ibanez UV70p vs Ibanez RGIF7

Hi guys/gals... have a quick question, I have had a UV70p now for a couple of years and it is a great guitar. But after seeing the RGIF7 (fanned fret) 7 string, all I can say is I am in love! hahah... I have had someone offer to trade the RGIF for my UV70p, they are both in great shape.

my question is... would you trade???
Pros/cons?

thanx!

Sure why not? neither of both guitars are rare or anything, their value is kinda the same, if you loved the RGIF7 and don't use the floating trem, go for it, you can always trade it, sell it or get another UV.

True about the trem.. I dont use it often enough. However here in Canada the uv70 is priced about 400$ more new. But used they go between 1000-1200. I am a bit worried about the active pickups though. I have never used guitars with them.

Re: Ibanez UV70p vs Ibanez RGIF7

I would probably make the trade too. The FF RGIF7 is a pretty cool looking guitar. The only thing I DON'T like about the FF is that it uses EMG 808's. I've only heard the 808's once, but they were super bland and sterile sounding. Another problem is that you can't change them out without making the guitar look like crap.

The good thing is Seymour Duncan do make a range of their passive pickups in an EMG style active mount housing, so you aren't so restricted on your pickup choices if you wished to change them.

Won't he still be stuck using an 8-string spaced pickup?


I just looked at SD to see what they had. Seems like a pretty healthy variety for 8-stringers.

What about Bareknuckle Pick ups in soap bar size? they should fit right in no?
