the 7321 does not have dimarzios and the warlock doesn't have EMG's.....
for most of the guitars we've mentioned, you're probably gonna want to buy after-market pickups...
You could easily put Dimarzios into the Warlock, but after further inspection on http://www.bcrich.com/platpro.asp , it has a licensed floyd rose....that's bad news, especially for the price you're paying for the guitar. if you want a double-locking trem, pay the extra money for the RG1527, their trems are great

I'd still go with the Washburn though, for 200$-free shipping you can't lose.....since you're gonna probably pay 100-150$ on pickups, the max total is 350 for a new 7 string guitar with good pickups. that's a steal

Stay away from the RG7321, its a pos.

And the RG1527 is a ripoff consideirng you can get a RG7620 for less.

And do i even need to say anything about the Washburn...

Well, no shit, atif. I meant that I was going to end up putting those in.

And I have a Licensed Floyd Rose in my axe now. Came with it. It can be a pain in the arse, but it stays in tune. And no other pickup would make as good of a fit with a warlock as EMG 81 and 85s.

Korean... Poor qualit control. Shitty woods use, most likely horrible fret jobs.

Crap bridges.

Just shit.

and Dissection shut up.

No pickup is perfect in ANY guitar.

First you say Dimarzio and Ibanez are the best together, now you say EMG's are the best for warlocks

thx

I'll have to agree with BLS. Stay away from the 7321!

For a while i was planning on buying a 7-string, cause i loved the low kickass growl. I also liked the RG, so the choice would have been pretty obvious, considering that i wasn't gonna pay more than about 600 for the guitar. And so I went to test the 7321 manymany times, and everytime I was disappointed. Okay, it looks nice, and it says Ibanez on the headstock, but it it's one of those cheap-crap-models. FIrst off, the pickups are horrible. I just couldn't stand them. I just kept switching from bridge to neck position, and no difference. .Period. But you can always get new ones...

Second, it felt so cheap. Basicly it's like those cheap BC Riches, more about the looks than quality. Like dear BLS said, the Korean built is crappy, the woods don't work, the neck blows big time, and yes, the fret work is depressing.

Too bad, I really liked this guitar before I tried it. So I bought a Esp/Ltd Kirk Hammett Signature (KH-202) (KICKS ASS!! ) , thicker strings and dropped the tuning. I love it! But seriously I can't think of any way to make this ibanez a good guitar, sorry... I'd suggest that put some more money on the line and go for some Prestige RG7 (haven't tried them myself, though...)

^you don't make any sense. you say the LTD kh202 is kickass

a korean made, basswood body with emg-hz's and a crap floyd. sorry man, there goes your right to speak. well at least it's a KIRK HAMMET guitar!!

You probably NEVER played Ibanez prestiges or customs, or even Ibanez's that where pre '95. or you'de know they do bring out quality stuff, and their older stuff was even better (American Master customs, J-customs, etc.)

Yet you recommend going for a prestige RG7, but you haven't tried them.



Anyways, most good guitars are way over 600 bucks. or you're getting used or a less well known brand like for instance a ran, charvel or a kramer.

Oh, and if no-one knows the story of Charvel, Jackson used to be their extreme division, and Charvel the high-end part, Jackson got bigger then charvel and bough up Charvel, old Charvel's kick serious ass.

But. Back to Ibanez, ofcourse the low end models are crap, you're not paying much for them so save up some cash if you want something semi-decent.

The 370dx is Korean made, and it is fine. So lick ass, BLS.

Yeah, def, most Ibanez models under $350 are utter crap. I got lucky with this 370, though. Plays great, and sounds great.

BLS, you also have a thing against EMG, so I don't listen to your banter about them. Dimarzio p/u's were designed for Ibanez. K THNX.

where is your evidence of this? Dimarzios were made since 1972, i think i heard that hard rock bands in the 70's put Super Distortions in their Les Pauls. Ibanez started getting big in the 80s, before they were just as known as a company that made japanese knock-offs.

Basically what BLS and i are trying to convince to you is that you can put any brand of pickups you like in any brand of guitar you like, it won't make a difference.
oh well.

Agreed, kinda.

the plus is that they're lightweight and pretty fast. but they're no RG's...

the S prestiges have wonderfull necks though, but they kinda lack sustain, 1200 bucks for a flimsy guitar with a bad trem. hm.... no?
