I was the one who talked to munky and I never said Korn is playin gthe guitars I just said they are putting them out. You're right korn makes noises and effects and it'd be kinda pointless for them to use a tremless guitar. however he said the only way to cheapen the guitar was to loose the custom trem and the mahogany body.
another note Ibanez supposedly stoped production, or is very soon of 7 strings all together except the K7 and the ones they custom build for artists. this is due to no demand for 7's anymore, probably because of the introduction of baritones. I didn't hear that from Munky, but another big name Ibanez user told me a couple weeks ago. Also pointing out that Ibanez has started making 8 string guitars, they only made 3 so far all custom shop for 2 different bands. they took 2 bridges and put them together to make them he said.
