2010 Ibanez S7420 pics

Hi, recently bought a new S7420 and thought that it would be a cool idea to share some pictures and opinions with you guys. Its basically a 24 fret version of older s7320 with Edge Zero bridge. The trem system (it flutters as good as OFRs) and neck profile is something I love but the locking nut adds to the open low B and E some weird harmonics. Hopefuly new nut will fix this.
D-sonic and Air Norton sound good but personally SDs combo JB&59 is still my favourite
Tone pot has been removed obviously, constantly knocking it with my pinky is driving me crazy.

So here it is:

Nice pics, thanks for sharing!!!

Though, that's not an Edge Zero bridge, but a Zero Resistance, hence the lack of knife edges.

Also, before replacing the nut, try dampening the strings behind the nut with either a little bit of foam or some electrical tape.

Need help with setting up a trem?

What neck are they using for this, a 3 piece maple or a 5 piece with walnut stripes?

Three piece maple.


It's pretty weird considering the RG7321 and RGA7 are both using 5-piece.

You said you removed the tone knob but in the picture, it's the volume knob that is missing. Hopefully a typo and not a knob removal error?

I'm guessing he removed the tone knob and replaced it with the volume.

It's what I'd do anyway

Apologies for not being clear, what I did was simply removed the ton pot and put the volume in place of the tone so its more comfortable for me.
Cheers

Thanks man, I totaly forgot about that old trick! Yeah that helped a lot, my first thgought was that they used a nut cut for 9-54 gauge strrings that caused the vibrations.
It as a ZR 7 bridge, my bad.
Thans again!

agreed... logic would state it would just be easier for them to use the 5 piece... however I'm glad they didn't; I really liked the 3 piece on the s7320s compared to the RG7 5 pieces(except the prestige of course, different class altogether)

I've been curious about that trem. Thanks for sharing!
Is the neck profile any different from the other s-7's?

Looks nice. I'm not a big fan of ibanez any more but I like this model, it has a good price too. I'm thinking of getting it my self. Like it much better with 24 frets than just 22 frets. I don't like limiting my self.

Damn, I didn't know these were already available! 'bout friggin' time they gave 'em 24 frets!

Are these the Ibby's that have shallow pickup cavities? So they can't fit stock Duncans or BKPs?

Im not sure about SD or 707s but tey should be deep enough for any humbuckers.
The neck fits to my hand profile perfectly, here are the dimensions:
Width at Nut 48mm
Width Last Fret 66mm
Thickness 1st Fret 19mm : Thickness 12th Fret 21mm Radius 400mm

RG1527 is slightly wider:
Width at Nut 48mm
Width Last Fret 68mm
Thickness 1st Fret 19mm
Thickness 12th Fret 21mm Radius 430mm


Hope that helps.

I wonder if that 24-fret neck would fit the older S7320.

Nope, they had to adjust the size and cut of the body to get the S to do 24-frets with decent access. Just like they did the 6-strings.

Also (imho) the intonation would be ruined, if the neck is longer than the 22-fret one. (I was also thinking of buying the 7320 some time ago, when 7420 was not even announced, but this concerned me, so I waited).
