7 string version of new 24 fret 'S'

The new 24 fret Sabers are fantastic and i personally would love to be able to buy a seven string version.

I sure would get me one. I was thinking of getting a S7320, but 22 frets just doesn't seem right for a guitar like that.

I agree, I want another 7, and 24 fret, 7 string 'S' would be perfect

I have an S7320, but surely would trade it in if there was a 24-fret version.

Well It looks like Ibanez listened regarding 24 fret sabers... maybe a 7-string version will appear this summer or next winter NAMM. I'd sure like a 7-string, 24 fret S with an Edge Zero.

Re: 7 string version of new 24 fret 'S'

Why would you prefer the Edge Zero over the ZR?

If E-Gen is the Saber Jem, then this would be the Saber Universe

Actually, I just want a floating trem with the functionality to block it built in.

Re: 7 string version of new 24 fret 'S'

The Edge-Zero doesn't actually block though, does it?
As far as I know it has the same ZPS stabilization system as the ZR tremolo, which gives you a more stable 'zero-point', but not to the point where you can actually change the tuning.
It's not that hard to adjust the tremolo for a new tuning with the thumbscrew at the back though.

So as far as I know, the only difference between the ZR and the EZ is the ball-bearings vs knife edges. In which case I wonder why people would prefer one over the other.
In fact, I wonder why Ibanez made the EZ in the first place. I always thought that the main issue with knife edges was that they could get dull and mess up the stability of the tremolo... Ball bearings don't have that problem, so shouldn't they be the better choice?

That makes me sad, I want a Floyd with a built-in tremol-no :/

I personally prefer knife edges because that way you can put the strings on the guitar with the ball ends on the tuners and keep using the same string as long as it's good for ya even if it breaks . It's an easy fix, but you can't really do that if your ball end is in the ball bearers.

Uhh, don't you mean the locking saddles instead of ball bearings?
Both the ZR and the EZ have locking saddles.
Knife edge or ball bearing is purely about how the bridge pivots, not about how you attach the strings to the bridge.
