NGD!!! J Custom 7 String content!!!

No, it's not the RG8527... But it IS a J-Custom, and it has 7 strings...

I tried that (8527) at the shop, and honestly, it sort of underwhelmed me after trying this one instead. Not sure if this is sold out of Japan, but I picked it up there in Shinjuku last week, and this was awesome.

Here are some pics:

Yes, there ARE 7 strings:


Tree Of Life in 7 string guise:


And here it is... an RRG8BX. I think that stands for Black onyx? Complete with EMG 707s and a nice light 2 piece ASH body...



Faux binding... nicely done...


Here's the cert:


And here's a nice little case candy I didn't know about:


Straplocks, Springs and a set-up tool??? Wow!!!

Honestly, I was surprised to like the EMGs compared to the 8527... The guitar sounded lively, and sweet even! just very articulate, and piano-like. I might go for the 707tws so I can do the split thingie... Dunno yet... Probabably just want to play around with it a bit more first...

I'll see if I can get a shot this weekend with my JPX7!

Sweet!
I had an 8527 that came to me with emgs in it and surprisingly , it sounded great.
Give them a chance before yanking them you may be surprised (and I am by no means an EMG fan)

Re: NGD!!! J Custom 7 String content!!!

Wow! Great find! That looks like a custom and very limited RRG run! Probably 1 of 5 or 6 of them.....

Envious and jealous right now! Ash body! Nice!

How much did you get it for?

Well done!

Yes they did... That's why I went for this instead of the 8527.

I do like them. I'd just want the same thing, but splittable... that required the 707tw instead of the usual 707...

I did get it from Rock Inn. They had 2 pieces in stock at that store. Maybe I should've bought both? Dammit!

Re: NGD!!! J Custom 7 String content!!!

As long as they came with them, then I'm fine

Routing a J.Custom for EMG's is a sin in my book. And I'm not even religious! But if it came like that from Ibanez, then It's not a sin, just stupid

Lol, I agree with this. I had an opportunity to snatch a 1527 Prestige with OHSC at a local store for only 700$. Not sure why I turned it down except for the fact it had some EMGs put in it :/ .
[OT]On the other hand, I still may have wanted to snatch it. But if I got that, I wouldn't have my 520QS, so, I guess I have no real regrets. [/OT]

Fantastic score!!!!

Ah... To each his own. I'm not an EMG lover, but I was looking for a guitar with EMGs specifically, in 7 strings. But the schecters were horrible. This one was really nice. I have other guitars that have passive pups. This is the only EMG guitar I have and I love it!

Re: NGD!!! J Custom 7 String content!!!

That is a beautiful pair of guitars you have! I've had a couple of BFRs in the past as well.

Nicely done!
