Psh. 7 Strings are for nu-metal bastards..hehe. Just playing with ya. But you do realize thats mainly the market for a lot of companies, nu-metal kiddies who want to be just like Korn or Limp Shitzit.

Best bang for your buck:

Ibanez 1527. You can pick one up brand new for about 700 bucks. It's got an Edge Pro Bridge, which in my opinion are great bridges, and personally don't think they take away from tone, I think they add to it.

If you're not happy with the stock pick-ups, throw some EMG 707s in there. If I weren't so busy with all of the other guitars and guitar projects I have going on now, this is exactly what I'd do for my next 7 string (which I probably will do in a few months).

A UV is gonna cost you, but it is a great 7 string. A J Custom 8127 is a super bad ass 7, but it's gonna cost you also, and trying to find one will be next to impossible. That in my opinion is probably the best 7 string out there right now, aside from anything custom shop, which is really gonna cost you.

Go for the 1527. For the price, you really can't go wrong.

I can empathize with the original poster, I too share his need for a good quality 7 string with a Tremolo.

Basically, since Nu-metal died the manufacturers didn't see them as important, and several are offering baritone models instead. Doesn't help us Death metal bastards out though does it.

I recently bought a Jackson DX7 (Fixed Bridge, Indian made, not the best guitar ever, and the neck is a lot thicker than it could be) which is going to be a back-up and a stop gap until I get my custom made, which should be finished by the end of this summer.

My friend recently bought a Ibanez RG 7620 on Ebay, it is practically brand new! I am really jealous of him. The neck is amazing, and it has DiMarzios whereas the current Prestige 7 string model has the Ibanez Infinity pickups. Besides, every other bastard is playing that guitar! Nergal from Behemoth, Tony Norman played one when he toured with Morbid Angel. The exact same colour, because it's the only colour it comes in. I love those guys but I don't need to play the EXACT same guitar as everyone esle.

So, in order to get a decent 7 string guitar with a decent tremolo and EMG pickups, I had to go custom.

Another thing which annoys is that you have to do some routing in order to fit EMG 7 string pups in any guitar that wasn't designed with them in mind in the first place. Thats EMG's fault of course, for stickign it in their bas spickup housing rather than go through the cost fo producing a standard 7 string pickup housing.

Do you realize theres really no difference in the RG7321 & the Universe except the pickups, trem & inlays? And any pickups that come with a Ibanez 7-string are garbage, even the Blaze II's that come with the Universe.

Go to a shop, don't get from catalogues, even an Ibanez official.
That's how I got my Schecter! There's only one Schecter outlet over here in Britain and I figured that they must distribute their whole range because of that.

OR, you can hope and pray for 2007!

So, Cyberwaste, your basically saying theres no difference? Well it's Korean made as opposed to Japanese manufacture and the prestige has the LoPro. Hmm you got me thinking. Reckon its worth $600 more than the 7321?

I think all he meant was the neck doesn't really feel much different.

Korean Ibanez's are good quality, but one can only really asume the build quality is better on the Japanese models. The tremolos aren't as good on the Korean models, but this doesn't affect the 7321 anyway, as it's fixed bridge.

The stock pickups in the Prestige RG1527 are the same as the ones that came in my Korean RGT42 (except 6 string not 7) and they were ok, but not amazing and within a fortnight I swapped them for EMG 81s.

I think it's a bit lame how they stopped putting DiMarzios in their higher end guitars, like the old 7620.

Compared to a 7620, I was told by one friend who had played both that there was little difference other than the looks, and if anything, the Universe was worse. Besides it looks gay as fuck...

And why pay for someone elses signature on it?

I personally think the UV is a nice guitar. I think it has more attention to finishing work, tighter tolerances, etc. than the 7620. I think my J Custom 8527 is nicer than a UV, though. I think they both sound fine.

I think the 1527 is a fine instrument. It will be the next 7 I get. I will replace the pickups, though. It is the prestige version of the discontinued 7620.

I played on a 1527 yesterday in a shop, and I really really liked it. Couldn't really test the pickups properly (due to volume and the amp I was using) but I pretty much know their standard anyway.

Basically, I liked it so much, I am thinking of selling my RGT42 and my NJ Warlock to finance the 7 string and some DiMarzio's for it. The neck made me wet, and the trem is so obviously better made than the Korean Edge Pro II in my RGT42.

What do you all reckon, sell my 2 six-strigners and go exclusively 7 string?

The 1527 is a nice guitar. I think you'll like it even more with EMGs.
