    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to pick up my first 7-String and I have come across this ad on kijiji:

    Ibanez 1527 Prestige 7 string guitar - Guelph Musical Instruments For Sale - Kijiji Guelph Canada.

    I researched the guitar and the main complaint was muddy pickups, however, this has a Dimarzio installed.

    The reviews I'm finding online have different price ranges. Do you guys think this is a reasonable price?

    Dont know how much they go for where you are but for me this would be a no brainer. Great guitar and you wouldnt need to buy the new pick ups ( which I did).

    Very playable gitfiddle.

    Go for it. It looks a like a good score for 750. The 1527 I played was rad. This comes with a good bridge pu as well. Maybe you could buy it and change the neck pu to another yellow one. IMO, it would look killer.

    Get it, dude. I've played a bunch and I can tell you that $750 is a steal.

    for this part of the world, this guitar is DIRT cheap. for this price and area usually it's a modified 7321 or S7320 that would go for this price. now if you're really averse to trems then this is a no go but other than that I don't see any reason to not get this, especially at that price

    I have an RG1527 and I absolutely love it! I scored mine at a sick price of $500, and I replaced the pickups. I would go for it, man. It's a killer guitar!

    There's also another person on this forum selling a RG1527 with upgraded Dimarzio Neck and Bridge pickup for $750... I was going to pick that up before but I found something cheaper. I think he still has it...
