today i sold my Universe, and i plan to buy an ibanez rg7321 cuz i dont want a tremolo 7 string guitar soon, and then change the fretboard with an ebony or purple heart or, some of your recommendation, with an inlay on the 12 fret, install emg's emg 81-7 and 707.
And maybe put an inlay on the body, similar to the pyramid inlay on the universe.
What do you think and reccomend?

yes im looking for an rg7621 or 7421, but i live in mexico, the only place those guitar are found is on evil bay, and shipping goes around $150 so price increase a lot.

But taking an rg7321 with a good luthier, maybe could change the guitar, with a nice fretboard and some mods like i mentioned, but im looking for some opinions on fretboard woods, the luthier is going to charge me $1500 Mexican pesos or $140 us, for the fretboard change and inlay, and some $100us for the body.

The rg7321 is a $400us guitar, plus $140 for fretboard change, plus another $100 for the body inlay pickup cavity and install and repaiting, plus $200 for the emg's, makes it a $840us customized guitar.

yeah i agree too, but shipping cost is a lot, like $150 bucks
today i received an email from the place i bought the pickups, and they told me that if can receive the stuff on the US, cuz they have to pay customs, and they can add to my credit the shipping cost i paid, but i live in Mexico, i told them that before i bought anything, and asked shipping costs and shipping time. but i was never warned about this.
Ill keep looking for a guitar, if you know about one tell me.

Best Regards

JN
