Yeah, check into a RG7321. 350$ new. Pretty decent guitar, probably the best budget starter you can get.

If you list your gear in your signature, you're a prick.

Hello :p

Damn, I think you just rattled off a piece of my history as well. Welcome to the forum!

Well Airman, there are lots of very nice 7-strings being made at the moment. It really depends of the features you want. For a 1st 7, it is hard to beat an Ibanez RG7. For trem models, check out a used RG7620. For hardtails, check out a new RG7321 (or used RG7421 or RG7621).

p.s. Where are you stations currently? You might want throw something up on the location area of your user profile.

Airman? I'm a SSgt :p j/k

I'm stationed at Travis AFB, CA... and I make trips up to washinton as often as I can.

thanks for the welcome! I'm originally from Poulsbo, WA... so I miss it up there, I'm actually trying to get stationed at McChord... but from what Ive seen, no go for a bit :p

Ive just started looking, and liked the vampire kiss RG7620, but I'm unsure of what a realistic price range I should pay for one?

Any good lines on a dealer that would have a good inventory or good deals?

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Yep, I was in the USAF from 95-02 & got out as a SSgt. I did most of my stint at McChord & then just stayed up here. I love it here. What do you do?

For a GOOD used 7620, expect to pay about $400. Ebay is a great place to find them. If you're looking for new guitars, check THIS page out. They are plenty of others & I'm sure more forum members will be along shortly to point you in various directions.

I really appreciate the info!
If you dont mind...
I saw this one on ebay, and I'm pretty interested, as the info says its new Ebay ad
I think it would compliment my Jewel Blue 5 string Ibanez

I sure as hell would if I didn't just finish paying for a UV! That's definately qualifies as a score! A 7620 is my next Ibanez purchase, this will probably be the only new one I'll ever see in my life. I wish I could swing it! Do it! Keep it in the ss.org family!

Welcome!

I would stay away from any guitar with a floating bridge. If your primary focus is bass, there's no sense in messing with a floating trem, especially if you change your own strings.

Other than the bridge aspect, I would recommend the 7620 over any other 7 out there. Period. I have 2 of them, and IMHO they're better than guitars twice their price.

Get an Ibanez fixed-bridge 7621 or comparable.

If you want a fixed bridge, RG7621, or RG7421 is where its at.

If you list your gear in your signature, you're a prick.

you read my mind
I like the idea of using a floating bridge, and I'm in no way scared of changing screens at all.

and If I'm able to win it, you can bet its gonna get played, but respected
