    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:hbang:) 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:bowdown:
    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!!! :hbang:

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

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

    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 :lol:

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

    Thanks man, I totaly forgot about that old trick!:agreed: 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)

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

    Thanks man for the pictures!
    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! :metal:

    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
