RG-270. My only unblocked axe, I bought it for $325 or something because it played really nice and was dirt cheap. Used it to record Cloudline.

Man, I've been dying to check out the new 1077XL long scale 7 string from Ibanez. How is that thing anyway? A little tighter than the usual IBZ I would imagine, huh? Plus being made of mahogany, I bet it's a lot warmer and fuller sounding... am I right? Can I play it?

My 7's

Hi all, im pretty new to this group, so i figured i'd say hello. Also wanted to post a pic of my 7's.



From left to right,
RG7621, custom mirror pickguard from jeannie pickguards, and emg 707's. The combination of those pickups and the string through body make it a war machine. (tuned to standard B)

RG7-CT, this guitar is pretty rare. Between 24 to 48 made. Never found out an actual count. Some people call it a RG7-VV (vintage violin). This guitar is tuned to drop A. The mahogony wood gives a nice fat tone with the A, and the prestige neck smokes.

RG7620, completely standard hardware and neck. Original body too, but i stripped the finish. Doing this to ibanez guitars usually opens up the sound. They put so much of it on. Definately brightened up the guitar. I finished it with gunstock oil. It's got that meshugga sound. Real fat wide sounding. This is tuned to A D A D G B E,
aka Drop D with a low A.

Im in a band to, you can check us out at www.sottovoceband.com
ttyl!

Man, natural finish guitars are just so great looking. How much of a pain was it stripping it? Very, very nice rack bro.

wasnt too bad, just gatta have patience. I used a palm sander, belt sanders can easily get careless and cause waves and bumps in the wood, plus it can also burn the wood. some people like that look though. glad you like!

I'm on the hunt for a GNX3 right now, just for recording. I love the 2101, just can't get the ....er to sound like anything less than bottled ass when run into Cakewalk.

A Mesa 412's on the list as well. Anyone want to buy an, erm, "Vintage" peavey 4x12 for say... $2000?

bottled assh..Heheh!!

are you useing some sort of tube buffer before you go into your computers sound card? I use a VHT valvulator on (L) side and a Access BS2 (R) side to give me a little variation of tones when mixing but blended together ...well I like it :o ...I also use the BS2 for live situations I have it as a splitter before my power amp...Like Butter .....makes crunch more crunchy and adds sustain and makes solos more silky.....I been using Genz Benz 2x12 Flex cabs they handle the low stuff really well and you can fine tube port them. ...

Nope. The last tune I recorded, Midwinter, was done double tracked with a GNX3 and engineered by Josh, so he might be able to tell you a bit more about the setup, but the to-disc tone that he got was pretty ....in' great in my opinion.

http://www.sevenstring.org/audio/midwinter.mp3

Everything I've done with the 2101 has been an adventure. If you hit my music page, Cloudline was done single track mono, One Fell West was single track stereo. OFW sounds a _little_ better, but the overall tone of both is horse.... compared to the stuff JC mixed for me. Doubletracking it helps a ton, but still with all of the emulators and whatnot in the 2101 and the fact that I'm running the onboard compressor AND a separate rack compressor before the mix, either I really blow at mixing or the 2101 just isn't a really good studio preamp unless you can mic up your cabs (another endeavor altogether).

I'll wait on Josh to tell what the actual setup was, I know it was something like Guit-> GNX -> RNC Compressor -> Motu -> RNC -> soundcard, but I'm not sure exactly.

I like it sounds really good....worth a second and a third listen...soon as my web master gets off his lazy AZZ and gets my web site complete i will have all my stuff on there..I am working on a solo shred cd with all the rythmes done with 7's and i even swtched on of my Carvin 727's to have a high C string instead of a low B..ear beanding ehheheh!!!! the Bi-o-itch was to get the bass guitar to sound differnet to the 7's when clean they absorb the same frequenceys..but i found a secret to that..that i will not reveal....my studio thingy...hehehhe!!!
