the 7620 is better off the rack than the 1527. being equipped with dimarzio pickups stock trumps ibanez in house pickups. not to knock the V's .. but the general rule is aftermarket pickups > guitar maker's pickups

if you like trems or are willing to learn about them? then 7620 > 7321 > RGA7

for total quality then it's 7620 > 7321/RGA7 by far

if you HAVE to have a fixed bridge guitar then 7321 > RGA7. having passive sized pickup routes and the five way switch gives you more mod options than dealing with active pickups/routes/pots

Well, I really don't mind trems. On my guitar, I have one (not a floyd, just a poopy thing), and I almost never used it... So I don't really care. But, IMO, RG7321 + PAF7/D-SONIC7 > 7620 with the original PU, no ?

hrmm ... hard to say. the 7321 would have to be one of the "good" ones. the quality control on the 7321's would pale in comparison to the 7620. the 7321 with the PAF7/d sonic will come close to the 7620. but the 7620 is still the far better guitar (quality of finish/body and neck woods/fit and finish would be far higher) ... the dimarzios in the 7321 would put it close in the tone sense, just not the quality sense

Okay. Well, I'll try to find a 2nd hand 7620. If any of you know one for maximum 600€/800U$D/500£, near Christmas/early 2011, I'm taking it I think :)

The Dimarzios it comes with are very low grade. They're New7s, which were basically on par with the V7/8-7s. Quite frankly, I don't think either is better than the other.

hi guys, i recently picked up an older k7. it has thicker strings than im use to, but it sounds great and plays awesome.

i tried to restring it using 9-.54's....but they werent strong enough and the low e buzzed liked crazy. so i put the old strings back on and its fine.
i called the seller and asked him what strings were on it, and he said 11-.56

i tried g.c. and sam ash. i even looked on d'addario, and i can not find a 7 string set 11-.56.

am i missing something?

any help is appreciated
it doesnt matter if youre wrong, or if im right, it only matters that its over

That sounds more like a standard 6 string set. He probably forgot to what string he added on top.

there's a rather big difference between the two .. the dimarzios are much brighter than the V's, and noticeably tighter as well. they might not be to everyone's tastes which is fine, but from my observations dimarzio doesn't do low grade versions of their product line like seymour duncan does with their duncan designed(for example)

By no means are they bad, but I wouldn't say they are nearly as desirable as, say, a Crunchlab/Liquifire combo.

Well I was saving for a possible new Ibanez in hopes one would come out that piqued my interest but alas, everything I want has a floating trem and I was hoping for more fixed bridge options. There was one but it only comes in natural and I hate natural finishes. So option B...

RGA7 or a RG7321?

$100 difference. Is the RGA worth the extra $100? Sadly no one around here has either guitar on the floor and I would have to order it online. Just looking for some opinions.

its only plus is a mahogany body. also depends on if you want a flat top or an arched, i prefer arched personally. and also the pickups, the RGA7 comes with actives, which unless you stick with actives like EMGs or Blackouts, which come with pots and ect when you buy them, youll have to buy some extras to put in your passives of choice

I upgraded my PU's finally to Seymour Duncan Blackouts As I found them for a awesome price on Ebay new in the plastic case never installed with all the Wiring, Pots, etc. I am really impressed with the change in tone i have but I have noticed that with my TV on I pickup alot of hum now. would taking the guitar and doing a complete sheilding help to eliminate that as I have never had Active PU's before so I do not know what works and what does not.
I just have to keep my TV off at the moment while i am playing which isn't a huge problem although sometime I like to watch shows while I am working on certain technics



This is how it looks now with the new PU's

I have been drooling for getting a seven string with Active PU's. I myself have never had them before, and your guitar looks great with those Seymour Duncan Blackouts!

Hello all, I registered on this forum quite a while back and then i kinda forgot about it for a while. Anyway , I am very pleased to see a section just for 7-strings as i am a fan of them and i own one myself. I have a Ibanez RG 7321 7-string which was an awesome guitar to start with , and then i had some Seymour Duncan Blackouts installed and now it is truly a beast! Sorry no camera so i could not take a pic.

Is the RGD 7321 discontinued? My local music store said it was but I thought it was new in 2011?

if your music store said that its prob because they are getting rid of it for 2012. they usually have a heads up about stuff like that. but you can still find it online. but i would wait cause they are prob redesigning it for the new namm.
