My Iron Label 7 String

So now i have this 7 string i bought on a whim. Im not really into 7 strings at all but again as a kid i thought i wanted one but when i finally had the chance to play i found myself just completely stumped by the extra string... oh well... so i saw a youtube video of a guy playing this very model and playing clean of all things and i thought "wow that sounds beautiful. Maybe its time..." then they went to explain that Ibanez would no longer produce that model in the gloss black but were going to the all satin finishes. After that i felt i should get one but only if i can find a glossy model. I always wanted a black guitar with it being fully bound in white and thats what this Iron Label was. So i found one on ebay in great shape for right around $400. Cha-ching! Sold. It was completely stock with EMGs 7 string version of the 81/85 combo. It sounds good like any other Ibanez 7 string with quality pickups and plays like an ibanez. As far as playability goes, im not really the one to rate it as I suck anyway and suck even worse with the extra string. Heard someone say just ignore the extra string. Play it like a 6 string until you need the extra string amd you'll get used to it soon enough. So thats what i do with the caveat that i play it like a 6 string tuned to either B Std or Drop A and pretty much ignore the high E string...

So if there were anything i would change about this guitar it would be the addition of some sort of fingerboard inlays. My favorite is the sharktooth inlays. So i found these decals and slapped them on here. I know thats kinda of lame but i need something on the fingerboard to help me out. So thats why they look kinda funny. They dont interfere with playing so I'll leave them on until i figure something else out.
