    Alright guys, I've decided to Zimblot this already. Its been on my mind for about a week and a half - the thing just does not get enough play (15 minutes so far) to justify keeping it around.
    I'm selling it for funds towards an S7420FM and also to cover a bunch of recent accomodation costs with my new flat - I left home almost three weeks ago now, so things are thin on the ground.

    The Guitar: This is an Ibanez K7 in Blade Gray, Serial number beginning F034 so I assume it was made in 2003, but not sure. Made In Japan. It came still in ADGCFAD (these guitars were setup and shipped like this) with hangtags etc., which are still attached. There is not a scratch on it, no pick swirling or anything. The arm(s) are both included, with the spare bushings still in their plastic wrapper, and the keys are still in the case. The plastic is still on the trussrod cover along with all the access plates on the back. This thing really is mint.

    Brief bit of specs - Mahogany body, 5 piece Maple/wenge neck, Dimarzio PAF-7 pups, and the Lo-Pro Edge trem with U-bar. :drool:

    The only changes I have made: Retuned to BEADGBE and set up for as such. Also, the neck alignment was slightly off (the high E was slipping off the fretboard at the really high frets) so i adjusted the neck slightly and all is well. (For those who don't know, I work in a guitar shop and do things like this all day, surrounded by other technicians, so this wasn't a slap-dash job that could snap the neck :))

    I'll get more pics up tomorrow after work for the meantime these are the pics I have of it already:

    Hardcase included along with a packet of D'Addario 10-59's or a mixed set of your choice :)
    I am looking for £600 + shipping (I've seen them going around £899 in the UK) and mine is just as mint. I live in Edinburgh in Scotland, so if you're a Glasgayer or similar pickup/delivery could be arranged. :) I am more than open to offers, feel free to shoot them at me, just bear in mind this guitar is making sure I have somewhere to live and something to play, so I reserve the right to turn them down. :)

    I don't have an eBay account (yet) so I can't post references but I'm pretty sure most of the people reading this recognise me anyway. :)

    I'm also looking for a trade for an Ibanez S7420FM, TT or TW. :) Money would obviously change hands at the same time. :)

    Is that what you wanted? :)

    EDIT: The dust in the pictures is actually my camera's flash catching the guitar's finish. Just thought I'd clarify.

    Price drop to £600 + shipping. This has to go, now and if it isn't gone soon i'll be chucking it on eBay/trading it in at Guitar Guitar.

    Anyone?

    Unrelated aside/bumpage - I SERIOUSLY like the looks of these things, with the grey pickups and powder cosmo hardware. Even the inlay oesn't bug me so much anymore.

    Great price on the guitar, for the UK, too...

    THIS NEEDS TO GO!

    £550 to someone I like. Come on people, I am fucking giving this thing away here but I NEED the money. If no one jumps on this I'm sticking it on the bay where it will easily reach £650. I'd rather it stayed in the family!

    COME ON! THIS IS MINT!

    In fairness lads it's in new condition for the price of a RG1527 RB for chrissakes! I'd go for it but for Mr. Rockwell's drunken Xiphos 7 babble!

    Maybe it's time for ShawnF to join the Ibby (ie straight) gang? :D

    thedonutman: I'm sorry, I'm not really interested in your RG. Nothing wrong with it, but I'm just not looking for anything like that. Sorry.

    I'm about to fork out on a Jackson 6 and I'm still looking for an S7420FMTW so need cash rather than trades. :D


    Straight swap for an S7420FMTW still stands. :)

    Ruarc, thanks for the banter :D

    Shawn, the US is a bit far away, but we could perhaps work something out. ..PM me if you want :D

    No it wouldn't Shawn. :lol:

    About $1067.93 apparently. Plus shipping, which could be heartstopping. As it stands, its quite a hit on what I could sell it in the UK for (£700) getting down to £550 (about a $300 hit) so this isn't really a deal that suits Americans. :(

    On the other hand, if you want what is essentially a NOS K7BG, this is your chance. I'll bend over backwards to accomodate, but the UK's economy has been particularly strong lately. Great for buying, crap for selling. :lol:

    Is that symbol a euro? If so, it does come out to $760 USD. 550 british pounds is about $1100 USD (wow...way to go US economy...)

    Nah, its a pound sign. GBP = £, Euro = €.

    Its not really a deal for US customers but I've tried to keep it appealling to them too; this is almost $1500 cheaper than a new one was over here, and mine is, for all intents and purposes, new.

    I want to move out into my new flat! I want an S7420! I want my Framus Dragon! Someone buy this! :( :( :(
