Well, as i remember, you've got the evo in the neck and the paf in the bridge- Why not switch them? The 7-string Evo is really intended for bridge, and the PAF i hear is better in the neck than the bridge. Just a thought... (I think i remember seeing you post this somewhere...)

Ooops...Paf7 is in the neck already, a bit bland sounding really....

Anyway,I might as well show her off







It's not my room btw, far too clean , I love it too much

Why didn't anyone buy these?

why weren't they pushed harder?

It didn't fail because of quality issues I can tell you. The more Iplay it,the more I realise it's aninjustice it got discontinued...

It's solvedmy GAS for a while

Those pics look VERY familiar, I'm gonna sue your ass for reproducing them without permission though. Best gimme one of your Universes before my solicitor calls

I'm glad the wiring fix wasn't too complex, look forward to seeing and hearing the guitar at Jemfest.

DON'T SCRATCH IT!!!!

I'll trey not to scratch it , going to be doing the rest of the rewiring this evening, onto getting the electronics fully working

It's already had a new hole drilled in it, something I'd advise anyone else to do as well. ie: routing the piezo braided wire differently so it doesn't run along the strings

And then set her up as well

beautiful, dude.... darker and with a much more pronounced grain than mine, it appears... How's that evo sound in the bridge? i think the TZ in mine just doesn't have enough high end clarity, and i'm about to trade for an evo, but i'm just wondering what i'm getting into.

The evo is very clear. The only thing I have to contrast it to is the blazeII in my UV. Basically the blazeII is a rawer pick up than the evo. The evo is clear, defined and tight. Not as much gain as the 6string evolution, but still enough, also not quite as much trebliness to it, which I prefer as the evo6 is a bit too bright, but this may also be due to the difference in wood (evo6->jem(basswood), evo7(mahogony)). Not bad, Not sure I completely like it, but maybe because my setup is still geared towards the UV's...

It's nice, I quite like the evo7 in some ways although I am not too sure...

I think its awful when a well made instrument is discontinued, I always have get the impression that "The Bar" has been lowered. Every one suffers as a result.
But I do have a question for you all. Putting aside things like nostalgia, the credibility added by having some very well made Signature models, and brand loyalty.
Do you think that Ibanez is in danger of pricing it self out of the market?

Well after reading this thread and thinking about it I think I am going to try to snatch the first RG 2027 I see on the used market. I have a real problem with Floyds but maybe if I just spend more time tinkering with them I will understand how they work better. If Ibanez were to reissue any guitars, this would be my first choice.

Hey guys... i know for sure RG2027XVV is still available here in Italy by Ibanez distributor Mogar Music (www.mogarmusic.it). In fact i just ordered mine and in a few days it's going to be in my hands! I can't wait. I never tried it, but i fell in love with it immediately when i saw the catalog back in 2001. All the good talking about it has obviously contributed to by 'obsession' hehe=)

If you want to buy one here and need information, please contact me via email or ICQ.

See ya all, bye!

The 2027 has the best 7string neck i've ever played: what a sweet profile. Now THAT's what i call a seemless transition from 6 to 7!!
It's also damn easy (I found) to get killer lead tones with it, even with the stockers. But I cant say as good for the low B riffing part. I should have listened to Drew before getting mine lol! actually, it goes like: one day i find a riff sound that suits me in the exact moment. Then, the day after, I cant stand it anymore: too midrangey, too loose, blah! I'm gonna try different bridge pickups hoping it will help. If not, it will just have to go...

stealth

Just get the Sustainiac Stealth Plus then you have your sustainiac and a Humbucking pickup all in one.

If I divorce myself from the happy emotion brought on by the swirl on my UV77MC, my 2027 is my favorite guitar for many reasons. i agree with jay about the wood. The piezos are novel and the overall tone is better to my ears.

I consider myself lucky. I have one of the first off the production line. I own the 2027 that was on display at NAMM the year they came out. Since I never sell my guitars, re-sale value is a mute point. i just think its special.
