    Hey everyone, I recently had to get rid of my beautiful Ibanez S7420 Flame Top w/ an H-S-H configuration for new EMG 707's for my UV7, which leaves me heartbroken. :cry: But, after doing some looking around, I found the ESP SC-7. 8) It's a neck-thru-body, with a rosewood fretboard, EMG...

    Well, the other day I walked into my guitar dealer, I looked around and didnt see ANY 7 string guitars. So I asked the shop assistant if they had any around or if they were getting any in. The reply was: "No we don't get any 7 strings in unless theyre ordered, there isnt really many people out...

    Hello all! I am new to this forum and just wanted to share my story and recent project. I have been an Ibanez owner for 11 years. I bought my first and only Ibanez, a Lazer-Blue RG565, in 1992. This was the guitar I learned how to play on and grew to love. Over the years I eventually...

    I'm in the market to buy my first 7 string, and I'm having a hard time deciding what to get. I would prefer somthing under $1000, but I could possibly go over. I've been looking at the RG1527, the UV777, and the Carvin DC727. I've played a few Ibanez 7 strings, and I know I like the way they...

    Is there anything special that you have to do when you install emg 707's on a guitar apart from routing and changing to a 3-way selector switch. Also how much would it cost to have them installed? Does anyone here have a preferance over the emg 707's? After listening to rusty cooley im hooked on...

    I have a question about amp models on my Flextone II, mainly, how to get certain sounds out of what I have. For example, Metallica's tones on St. Anger (especially "Invisible Kid", and I think they use Diezels and Mesa/Boogie Dual/Triple Rectifiers) and Deftones new album (I know Stef uses a...

    In the NAMM discussion on one of the other forums, they say there are no more XL 7 strings being offered. That's sad news. I was hoping to see more of them and I was certainly willing to buy another if it was even close to a configuration that I liked. It may be a good business decision, but...

    I'm seriously considering buying a new RG2127 or a used 2027. I have to admit that the Vintage Violin finish looks alot better than the Deep Black finish. I really wanted this guitar because of the piezo pickups, but I can't seem to find any soundclips of it. Can someone please post or send me...

    I think it would be good to know everyone´s preferences, so why don´t we make a short list of our dreamed guitars?(you know, your 5-10 fav ones). Even an explanation of why would be a guide for others. Please, don´t say 5 different models of the same one... :wink: (you know which one i mean)...
