Need Help Identifying 1999 Ibanez 7 String

Hey gents,

Found a Ibby 7 string that by all accounts appears to be a 99 RG7420 in black pearl. Two humbuckers, with the more squared pickup tabs, and looks to have a lo-trs trem. The thing that's befuddling me is that the fretboard is blank, with no inlays of any kind. The serial number dates it to '99, but I've checked the catalogs for '98-'00 and looked around on the net, but can't find any example of an Ibanez 7 string with a blank board (outside the 2077xl which is ruled out here by the p'ups and trem). Anyone have any ideas? Factory one off, mistake, etc.? Or was there actually a model somewhere like this?

kind of sounds like someone did some parts swapping and frankenstein'd something together. have you taken the neck off to check what the pocket stamp says (if there is even one)?

Any pics? I'm wondering if the inlays were covered with a sticker that resemble the rest of the fretboard.

Just a couple of not-so-great ones the guy sent me from his phone, but there doesn't look to be anything amiss with the fretboard. Really just looks like a 7420 with no markers, but you know how it is, if you've never seen it, you have to know.

I couldn't find any pics in the US catalogs that show it without fretmarkers. Maybe it's in one of the European or Japanese catalogs?

I considered that as well, but no luck there. Either way, it's ultimately still a 7420, so nothing incredibly interesting. The guy's far from an Ibanez junkie and says he was told it was a limited run, so I guess it's as simple as that. I just thought I'd seen pretty much every Ibanez under the sun ...ah well, learn something new every day I guess.

I was first thinking RG7620 but the Lo-TRS 7 rule that out. So probably a 7420 as the boy from Plainfield, Illinois says then. Strange with the blank board anyway.
