    I have never owned a 7 string so I figured this would be a good start.

    Specs
    • neck type: Wizard II-7 3pc Maple neck
    • body: Basswood body
    • fretboard: Rosewood fretboard w/White dot inlay
    • fret: Jumbo frets
    • bridge: Fixed bridge
    • neck pu: QM-7 (H) neck pu (Passive/Ceramic)
    • bridge pu: QM-7 (H) bridge pu (Passive/Ceramic)
    • hardware color: Black
    • Scale: 648mm/25.5"
    • Width at Nut: 48mm
    • Width at Last Fret: 68mm
    • Thickness at 1st: 19mm
    • Thickness at 12th: 21mm
    • Radius: 400mmR

    Finish
    Excellent and not a flaw to be found.

    Pickups
    • Very versatile
    • Medium Output
    • Midrange heavy
    • Five way PU selector (Neck Hum, Parallel Neck Hum, Dual Hum, Split inner coils, Bridge Hum)

    Tuners
    • Standard sealed
    • Good ratio
    • Quality is very good

    Bridge
    • Fixed
    • Standard Fender style block saddles
    • Quality is very good
    • String through body
    • The only thing that I was not to happy with was the sharp tall saddle screws digging into my palm.
      After modifying each and every screw so it sits just below the saddle after a setup resulted in a super comfortable bridge.

    Neck
    • Kind of a flat C shape "ish"
    • Natural finish back
    • Inlays are not a bright white
    • Small side fret markers
    • AANJ (All Access Neck Joint)

    Truss Rod
    • Easy access truss rod cover
    • No screwdriver needed



    My opinion overall of this guitar is a good one.
    I paid $450 CDN brand new with a pro setup from the retailer I bought it from.
    I was surprised how easy it was to adjust to the added girth of the neck.

    I'm really impressed with this RG7421WH
    I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to get started on a 7 string with a budget of $400-$500.
    Killer guitar...I mean killer for just over $400.

    Bought one in spring myself. Much better with Dimarzios, but the stock pickups went in a Grendel I gave to my other guitarist and he seems happy with them. I thought that position 2 was bridge coil tap, maybe I'm wrong or thats how my tech wired the new set.
