Im looking for a guitar

Hey guys,
Right now i have this year's rg1527.
And im looking to buy a new guitar, but i have some very specfic details im looking for.
they are:
7 strings
Baritone
Trem or no trem is fine
Reverse headstock
Body and neck bindings (around headstock too)
Matching headstock
HH prefered, but HSH or SSH is fine
Anypickups, but Airnorton/Blaze would be nice
Would be great if it was a neck-through
Anywood for body, Maple or Rosewood for fretbaord would be nice

If you guys can direct me to something with most of those specs, or a neck and body i can put together, it would be very helpful.
Right now im looking in the Jemsite 7string dircetory, but if you guys can find somthing first it'd be great.

thx

Considering those specs. i would recommend a Schecter C-7 Hellraiser or a LTD SC-607B. You could also take a look at the 7 string V offered by KXK Guitars or check out warmoth since they have 28+ inch necks for 7s. Good luck!

thx man
Ithink ill have to be a custom job. I dont think i can find all that in 1 guitar, maybe 2.
i guess i forgot to mention that the 7strings, baritone, reverse headstock and bindings(some kind of white color) are most important.

The Ibanez RG1077XL has all you want, except the reverse headstock. I've got one, it's a great guitar. Even the stock pickups (DiMarzio New 7's) are pretty good.

They're not new though, Ibanez stopped making them in 2001 (I think). It's not too hard to find one second-hand though.

Maybe a LACS Dino? I'd get a UV. No reverse headstock though. How about an S 7420? Good luck!

Re: Im looking for a guitar

It sounds like your after a custom-made jobbie. You will be very hard pushed to get anything that matches your spec 100%, apart from if you get a guitar custom built. No production model out there is like it.

You have your spec. So it sounds like a custom is needed.

Re: Im looking for a guitar

Warmouth do baritone necks but they don't seem to have a reverse headstock option on any seven string necks. Shame really since they'd be great on a lefty...

I sent them a few emails on the subject but they say they sell very few 7 strings and aren't realyl bothered about putting any effort in to expand that. Shame.
