I too am wondering...

But if this can be done can the reverse be done? Does that mean that an edge pro will directly fit in the cavity for a low trs on, lets say, a warmoth? It looks like it might need a slightly larger rout but I'm curious now because I love edgepro's and It might be worth it to maybe throw one on my warmoth if it won't require too much muckin around with the routs and stuff.

EDIT: Or maybe I should just buy a 1527 and be done with it?

I wish I could get a neck off of one of these. I have the regular rg7321, but I end up in AEADGBE most of the time and the top string is so floppy that it only takes a quarter strum to get it to sound like an audio clip of a chainsaw being played through an AM radio. That's a bit exaggerated, but it's noticeable enough. It's practically impossible to get a neck, though, so I'm not sure what I'm gonna do... I really want the extended scale though. Here's a pic of what I've got:

you could just sell that rg7321 (you can probably get a wee bit extra with those EMG's in there) an buy the rgd7321. maybe even try blackouts in that one if your bored and wanting a change

I've thought of that, but I put a lot of work into getting those emgs in there lol. They also sound ballin. I don't know how anybody can stand them without the 18v mod tho, they sounded like a piano before I added a double battery box. I've got a project guitar in my basement that I've been wanting to finish for a while, so I plan on trying to get that puppy sold if I can get the money to put into it first...

Just bought another rg7321, pawned my last one for like 100 dollars
I must say the fit and finish was a little better on my last one. Maybe this one being made in Indonesia has something to do with it? Also the action on my low A string seems a little high. Don't know though for sure. Maybe I'll post some pics and you guys could help me out?

EDIT: And what is a good cheap practice amp I can hit up? Thanks dudes.

Alright so I just measured the distance from the last fret to the string on my low A and it was .8 mm. Then I measured the high D and it was right under .6 mm. So should I bring my low A down to .6 mm?

Dunlop, all about personal preference. Might be easier to chugg on the 7th string, but harder to shred and play scales in one position. my 2cents

Also, I was wondering if anyone knew of any pups to put in an RG7321 that'll give some fairly good metal tones (Ill be running through an Engl gigmaster 15 and blackstar 2x12) but still give some clarity on cleans.

I've got 2 emg 707tws and they wrok pretty hard. I've not tried any other brand, except when my buddy asked me to install some dimarzios in his schecter, but it only had one string on, so that probably wasn't the most definitive experience. The 707tws have the coil tap in em too, which I have to say sounds better to me than the traditional single coil. If you ever do get emgs for anything, though, go for the double battery box. It'll be worth you're while.

Edit: I forgot about the routing required for the emgs, though... it's a pain, no doubt

im not making fun, i promise but the trem is the only thing that people hate on the 7420. thats why theres a 7620. as i said, im not making fun of your preferences, i promise, its just that you made the guitar less quality by doing that.

Yeah I brought it down to .6 mm and it feels kind of sloppy now. I don't need loose tension to chug so I guess just need to get a bigger string for my low A. It's a 59 right now so maybe I should go for 60? Also, if I get a bigger low A should I just go ahead and change all the strings to a size bigger? In my inexperienced opinion it doesn't feel like I would need to but I'm most likely wrong about this.


Pretty much the feel I'm going for is low action but still retaining a good amount of tension. Not too much tension though. I just don't want the strings flopping around.

Where can I get these different color pickup top things? I have a 7321 (unmodded as of yet, my parents don't want me messing with it too seriously yet, since they bought it for me). I want dark purple ones...or really any shade of purple, but dark purple would be best.

Do you mean pickup covers or changing the color of the pickup bobbins? If you want a cover, I'm not sure you can get any colors except black, chrome, and gold. If you mean the bobbins, you'd pretty much have to buy new pickups. I don't know of any pickup companies other than Dimarzio that do the colored bobbins and with their 7 string pups it looks like you're limited to combinations of white, black, yellow, and green...

Here's a question (not completely sure it's in the right place, but there we go!).

I'll be ordering Crunchlab and Liquidfire to fit in mine.

I'm guessing that I'll need to do some 4-conductor wiring so's the serial/parallel switch will still work. Are there any diagrams about to help with this? Any link to the Ibanez site don't seem to work and wiring diagrams don't seem to be on their site now.

More than anything, I just need to know what wires are the north and south wires in the stock pups.

Cheers!

That's a good idea. We need to team up to think of the most creative way to destroy them. We can have a pic story and everything describing the process. lol

Good luck on getting enough money to change your pickups. They'll definitely sound better than stock.

I don't get why Ibanez doesn't make all of the prestige's come with name brand pickups, seeing as almost everyone changes them anyway...

You may have answered your own question there.

If Ibanez put DiMarzios in, Duncan fans would change them anyway. If they put EMGs in, everyone would hate and change them anyway. If they put BKPs in, well they wouldn't be changed but the guitar would no longer be the affordable but quality guitar that we know.

Good thinking. Oh well, The problem doesn't really affect me now anyway.

I found it peculiar that BKP gave me a 6-string pack of strings with my 7-string pick-ups. Is that normal?

Are pick-up changes hard or complicated? I wanted to learn when changing this set, but I guess can learn in future...
