Need a 7-string

I'm looking for a 7-string, I'd like to stick with an Ibanez, unless anyone has any better suggestions.

The GC by me just got in a 7-string, I think it's an RG470 7-string. Any opinions on it? The pickups are most likely stock, but I can install new pickups anyway.

As for an Ibanez 7-string, I wouldn't want to go lower than a 470.

+1 on a RG 7621 or 7620.

Re: Need a 7-string

I'll check it out. The RG470BK is $285. Preaty cheap, worth picking up, right?

Re: Need a 7-string

470bk is just a 6 stringer. I thought you are looking for a 7?

Re: Need a 7-string

I keep searching for the 470 7-string too, I know of one other person who has one (on Satch's forum), other than that, I can't find any info on it? I'm looking into the 7621 though.

Re: Need a 7-string

There is no 470 7-string. You're probably referring to the RG7420 or the RG7620.

Re: Need a 7-string

^I've already heard that a few times, lol, and was agreeing until I came across someone on Satch's forum that plays 470's, including a 7-string 470. I sent him a message, I'm just waiting for him to get back to me with more info on it.

I'm checking the 470 out tomorrow at GC. I'm pretty sure on the phone the guy said it was MIJ. The 7321 and 7420 are made in Korea and have fixed bridges, this 7-string 470 has a Lo-TRS trem and apparently MIJ. Like I said, I'll be the judge of it tomorrow. Anything I should look for to hopefully figure out what it is if it isn't a 7-string 470? If it is MIJ, it should be stamped on t he back of the headstock, right?

Re: Need a 7-string

Is it an RG or an S? It could be one of those funky S-7's with SSH-configuration.

Nope, it's an RG - H/S/H config.

Re: Need a 7-string

There s no RG7 that has the HSH except the ...RGXL...or something (the limited edition one).

The 7420 I think they made in Japan... but 7321 is Korea for sure, you can just check over the e Bay too. (The GC don't carry much of 7s, I think, may be some used ones there, never know).

Re: Need a 7-string

I found out that it is the RG7420 with similar specs. as the RG470. It is made in Japan.

Re: Need a 7-string

Anyone know where I can find pics of the Ibanez RG 7-Strings (front, back, and back of the neck). It's hard to tell apart the RG7's that are all black, very similar specs, and have fixed bridges. I need some way to differentiate between them when I see them.
