Alrighty, I would like to own a 7 string, I always sort of have, and I never got around to actually being serious about getting one, but the time has come.
For starters, I would like it to be an Ibanez, I just love everything Ibanez, and I know that I would be getting a great 7, if it was coming from them.
As for the music Im looking to play with this, well Dream Theater is number one, thats the big reason why im getting a 7(and low riffing of course
: ). And I would like to have a nice guitar to be able to use for other tunings, another reason why I dont want a floyd.
My price range is I guess around the $400 range, I dont wana spend allot of money on it, you know. Right now im looking at the RG7321, seeing as its relitivly(sp?) cheap, and ive played it a few times already. The neck was great, like always(it is an Ibanez afterall
). The 7 string feel took a little time to get used too, but after a few minutes, it felt great. The pickups on it were meh, not the best, but they can be changed, which I would do anyway.
Im not neccisarrily looking for one with a floyd, cause if I were my only option would basically be a 1527 or a UV, both of which are highly out of price range. I might be able to find a used MIJ RG7 though, if I look around. Any suggestions on those? Im really not up to date on the older Ibanez 7 strings, so could someone help me with info on those?
So what are your guys' opions on the 7321(Including a pup change down the road)?
Any other suggestions are always welcome.
