For my taste the Apex II is one of the best looking guitars in the Ibanez arsenal. And I like the simpleness of it. Couldnt care less who's sig it is. Mine's currently away for a pick up swap (getting some blackouts in). Will post some pics when it's back

But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory................

I hate it!!! Well it really looks cool but I don´t think its real paint. It´s so soft if you put your fingers on the body while playing you´ll get black fingers and if you put them always on the same place after about 3 months of usage the wood shines right through.Mine is about 2 years old now so you can guess how it looks. This shouldn´t happen with a 1800 € guitar. If you want I´ll post pics ...
But it´s still a nice guitar with the best neck I think.
It´s a little thinner than a K7 one but thicker then the rest of all Ibanez 7s.

Do you have to route the pickup slots? I wanted to put Blackouts in my K7... I needed to route so I put them in my Xiphos.

No idea if they will have to be routed, but that will be taken care of for me as I don't install em myself. Waiting for locking tuners to come in 2. Changing strings gonna be even quicker soon

Damn, that's serious. I had no idea. How could Ibanez be so careless. Thank you for letting me know, I'll be scouting around for another seven elsewhere.

I'd be interested to see how this works, as my K-7 has a substantially thinner neck than the 7321 and S 7s, and was about as bulky in the hand as UV, except with a rounder profile without the shouldered D shape of the UV777BK.

I would like to see pictures of the worn finish on your Apex 1 if thats cool

yeah please do man!

I <3 teh K7

if I had one myself I think I'd probably do a pup swap though. while I like the tone of the PAF7s A LOT when the gain is cranked, I like my tone nice and tight so I'd probably go with a higher output pickup like the Evo7 or something

What happened to Jeff? Funny how he dropped off the radar now that the entire Western world disagrees with his right wing bull.....

That's what I'm using in the video I posted although now the EVO is in the neck and I've got an SD Distortion in the bridge.
