Seven String Advice

Im thinking more and more about buying a 7 string but was wondering about a few things before i decided to dive in.

Basically, i've been looking at an RG7420, 7620 and the 1527, mainly because i cant get comfortable on a guitar without a floyd now, no idea why, i just miss it alot when i play a fixed bridge.

Are there any big issues with any of the guitars listed and whats the difference between then 1527 and the other 2.

Im under the impression the 7420 was a cheaper MIK version of the 7620, what bridge does it have?

Anyone have an recommendations?

Re: Seven String Advice

The 7420 is the less expensive version of the 7620 and has the lo-trs7 bridge.

I've not seen a 1527 in person, so I can't tell you all the differences between it and a 7620.

I would recommend a 7620.

Re: Seven String Advice

www.ibanez.com should state each models bridge and pick up models. Though I'm sure I read somewhere the official site isn't too accurate on the specs.

A lot of 7 strings feel like a guitar for a giant person with giant hands. If you solo a lot, I would recommend an Ibanez S7420fm, the guitar shreds man, I've owned two, and it has the original wizard neck with the s body style so it's thin and comfortable.

Re: Seven String Advice

i had the 7620 and the 7420.plays the same,i think the same neck and body(pickups/trem cavety is different okey?)7620 trem is perfect!lo pro edge bridge do ihave to say more?the pickups of the 7620 are much better!go for that one.wait and save mony for the 7620.the other is the cheap one and they save money on the most important things.but play hear and feel those guitars if you can!

Re: Seven String Advice

The 7620 and 7420 are the same but for the pickups and bridge as briantx mentioned. Exact same necks and bodies from the same plant. The 7620 has the New 7's and the Lo-Pro7 bridge, the 7420 has the Ibanez pickups and TRS-7 bridge. I'd go with the 7620, or a 1527.

If you swap the pickups of the 1527, you get a REALLY great guitar
