Thanks man....For years I was running a 7620 or 2 and thought it was time for a change....I love my JP but I may be buying another 7620 in the next year.....they just all do different things, very well.....

The 5150 50 watter is a beast....First time in 15 years I havnt needed an overdrive pedal...so much gain and chunk and sustain on the red channel...the blue channel on this is also amazing as well......The rg520qs sounds great on it....

I've spent most of my time with my RG7620 as well. And just got myself a Peavey Triple XXX.

Sounds great but I really want to get myself one of those "Hi-Fi" tones. Like an ENGL Powerball or something.

Though I'm solving my guitar GAS by modding the fu*k out of my RG7620

I love the powerball and especially the MarkV but Im a home player and dont play out so the 5153 50 watter is perfect for me.....It still surprises me everyday that I dont need an od pedal for my 7 string. It picks up everything and is so clear. I can play Fear Factory/Dream Theater/Trivium covers with just the amp and the crunchlab in my JP and its heavy and tight as hell. Could be the Alder body and ebony board (Not sure where the mahgonay tone block come in to play yet but im still playing around)....

A really good 7620 with upgrades is better than a lot of newer 7's out today imo....My old 7620 had an evo 7 and it was freaking great...you should throw some pics of yours up....7620's are eye candy to me...cant get enough of lookin at them.....

Definitely agree with this. Great guitars, and they smoke 80% of what's out there. They tend to go around 400-600 used and that's a great price for an MiJ RG7.

The only production 7 I like more is that JP7 you picked up

Py36 could you say somthing about the neck of the Jp compared to the RG520 even tho it might not say so much as the jp7 is bigger/wider then the jp6 i was thinking of.
I suspect the jp6 neck is smaller then the wizard you got on the RG520.

Sure,

The JPXI-7 has a 20 inch radi, and you can feel it. It feels amazingly flatter than an original wizard (I thought before I tried the feel from 16 to 20 would be negligable but its there...). The stainless steel frets are spoiling the hell out of me as well.

The width feels almost the same as my old 7620, just a bit different....The back of the neck is assymetrical so I cant even compare it to anything else, its very new to me. The XI, and 12 are completely different from every other JP due to these specs. When the nut has some sauce in it the trem is the biggest surpise. It stays in tune very well. Gilmourish use, warbles and even flutters will not throw it out of tune at all. Dive bombs after a few times will but thats to be expected.

The biggest difference is the tone. Again its hard to compare to but between the Alder body, Mahogany tone block, Ebony board and Mahogany neck its got amazing tone. You just cant get a bad sound out of it. It has a tight neck pocket, the construction is as you would expect from an EBMM.

Saying that, the 520 has an original wizard spec neck and it feels better than the '90 RG750 I used to own, its very nice for bunch of different reasons.

No point in posting pics of mine. It's not eye candy yet . But in the future, it'll be blindingly white, matching headstock, abalone checkmark inlay and D-Sonic/LIquifire pickups (tone removed). Thankfully, the electronics are done. So it sounds better than it looks
