Xiphos 7 string. WHEN?

Want to order one. New here, just got a RTG6EXFX yesterday. Glad to have an Ibanez again. Any idea when the 7 will be available and recommend me a dealer that I can order from and don't say GC, Music 123, or musicians enemy. I'd prefer some place that is actually going to look at it and inspect it prior to shipping it to me.

Thanks, Kevin

Eh, never liked the Xiphos, still don't. Plus... they only put an Edge III in the 6 string... it was never meant to be pro. It would have gone farther with better hardware and craftsmanship.

The bridge on this thing looks awfull on the wrist...

That bridge is ugly as hell - but it does look like it might be a very functional bridge.
