Back to reality.
Now, I go to GC and see just one 7 - some Ibanez made in Indonesia.
Where can I find some quality 7's in San Francisco? Like RC7 or C7, or MIJ Ibanez? Lookin to spend $400 - $900 USD.
The 6's I play are all MIJ Ibanez RG. I like those, except for the tone nob and the not-so-good placement of pup switch. I like crunch tones, not over the top gain, and tend to like SD pups and Mesa Boogie amps.
Have you tried looking at Musicians Friend? Free shipping and no tax. If I was in your budget range, this would be my first choice...

Just search around there, and like stated before, send it back for a full refund if you don't like it.
