So, I walk into Guitar Center today, and whamm-o, I see this puppy:

I had to have it. It was $249 WITH a case. So, I don't know anything about it now, I'm doing research, but I figure that it is at least a decent deal. It's definitely a 'players' guitar, but that is fine with me, I intend to play it.

What tuning should I put it in? I am in a cover band, so I'm curious, what main stream stuff can I do with this thing. I know the Korn & Limp Bizquick use 7's but are their other groups I should check out (just the main stream radio rock stuff)?

Looks like an RG7420MC. Not sure if that is a good price though. With the tuning you could probably just keep it in standard with the low b and get a whammy pedal to pitch the notes up or down as needed. Hope this helped!

Where the pickups are mounted the holes were routed 'square' shaped, made to accomadate the japanese made v7 v8's in the 742X's. If it were a 7620 it'd have the more triangular shaped ones, made to accomodate dimarzio New 7's.
Or, you could just look at the bridge. ;)

Damn, you all are right, the 7420. Still 250 bucks with a case, I'm happy. I've been playing it for a couple days now, it feels good, and sounds solid. It needed a good cleaning though when I brought it home.
