So one day I was surfin the local craigslist, and ran across a post for an "Ibanez RG 7"
there were no photos, or any info on the actual guitar, so I asked the duder if he had any info on it.
the guy literally knew nothing about it. only the serial number.
so after a little help from Ibanez Rules, I was able to get the model info
RG7421XL. in near mint condition.
so for a mere $235 I was able to score my first 7-string.
Came with the original case, warranty card, and alll the goodies as if someone bought it, then threw it in storage.
