NGD: RG2077XL

The times for good deals are not over. I got this one for insanely $560.
With DiMarzio Blaze custom at bridge position, It looks untouched but it's probably just nicely replaced. Blaze middle and New 7 at neck.
For those who don't know what it is. A 2003 prestige baritone 7 string, 27" scale. Basswood body. I turn around the neck pickup so position 2 is with the coil towards the neck along with the middle single. My favorite clean sound. I wasn't too happy about the New 7 neck pickup when I had a 7620, but with the split with a single coil I actually came to love it.




Pairs well with it's sister, the RG970XL.

Congratulations!!!

That's a rare beast and one that I always think Ibanez should have brought back when 'djent' was on the rise!

$560?!!? Oh man!

Still waiting for Ibanez to release another 27" scale 7 string. Enough of this 26.5" crap!

That's definitely the deal of 2016 so far. Those are rad, and $560 is ridiculous!

The seller listed it as a 1527. He didn't know what he had.

Yeah, that happens ALL the time. I can't tell you how many sellers I've had to message sellers to tell them they've got the wrong specs, or the wrong model completely.

We can also use that to our advantage

Re: NGD: RG2077XL

Nice score, those things are great guitars. The longer scale made legato in the lower registers a little tricky, but felt pretty comfy higher up on the neck.

Fantastic score. A rare Ibby for sure and an absolute steal at that money:
