Couldn't agree more I love the UV777BK, it really is a great guitar and you can pick a good condition used one for a pretty reasonable price I have three 7's, the UV, RG8527 and a Leviathan. The UV *just* beats the 8527 for playability. Plus imo it's just one of the best looking guitars I've ever seen

Re: The rise of the seven string

I've been a 6-string player for about 13 years, never really thought about 7-strings... I never even bother to try alternate tunings on my guitars anyway. I don't play the kind of music that needs to 'go low'.

But I loved that ZR tremolo on the new S series... I think the S series are beautiful guitars anyway. So I decided to try the 7-string version, because that'd give me something unique, rather than yet another "humbucker guitar with tremolo". I just like the superfat sound that the guitar gives me, and it turned out quite easy to play. So I got the S7320.

I still don't use the B-string a whole lot, I mostly play it as a 6-string, but it's one of my favourites.

All I know is that I truly miss my S 7420. It was a very comfortable and great sounding guitar. I will own another one someday.

Re: The rise of the seven string

If you check out Scam Ash's Ibanez 7 & 8 string section on their website you come up with the following models.
RG1527, RG7321, UV777, Xiphos 7, RG2228, Apex 1, Apex 2, and S7320.
I'd say that's a good selection of 7's.
I never played an RG1527, but it looks like a 7620 with a Prestige neck. I'm not sure how the specs match up but the RG7620 is a solid instrument!
UV's are nice but IMO they need a new version or another color choice.
RG7321 is a sweet instrument too, especially for the price.
Apex 2 looks pretty cool too, though I have yet to try one.

Eh, I'm just a little bored. It's cosmetically one of the nicest UV's, and I've really dug the ones I've played. It's just, after what, 15 years...? It'd be cool to see a new finish.

There was a foreign 2008 Ibanez page someone linked up where it appears they accidently set up the new UV page with the Jem7V specs, and all of sevenstring.org collectively flipped their shyte when we saw the "Body: Alder" bit. THAT I would buy in a heartbeat.
