The 7620 and the 1527, are in essence very similar guitars, if a little time apart.
I believe the 7620 in it's hayday, sold for a few hundred dollars list price more than the 1527 does now,
Don't let this decive you however, the 1527 is an exceptionally well priced guitar.
I think the one thing letting it down, are the pickups, but like allen said, these are easilly changed, and dimarzio make exceptional pickups.
The neck on these baby's feels nicer to, thanks to the prestige treatment.
what confuses me however, is weather or not the rest of the guitar is classed as "prestige"
A few years ago, only a few guitars had the prestige insignia on them, and this was usualy refering to the neck only, not the whole guitar, then recently ibanez revamped it's line, and introduced many guitars to the prestige line. It was around about this time the 7620 went out of the window
What I'd like to know, and if anyone can answer I'd be aprecheitive lol, is weather or not the new prestige guitars like the 1527, are classed as all Prestige, body and all?
