    This is my first 7 string in a while since i sold my ben savage 7 string.
    I really miss that guitar BUT this one i have now sounds and plays much much better than that guitar. this is also my very frist new guitar in 5 years and it was a great investment! It sounds super crushing due to the mahogany body and the stellar paf 7 pickups. Purple also has a lot d\to do with how it sounds as it just brings out the inner shred! this is also number 13/40 that were made for Wired Guitarist and it was their first ibanez run :)

    Specs as follows

    neck type Wizard-7 5pc Maple/Wenge neck
    body Mahogany with flamed maple top
    fretboard birds eye maple
    fret Jumbo frets w/Prestige fret edge treatment
    bridge Lo-Pro Edge 7 tremolo bridge
    neck pickup DiMarzio® PAF® 7 (H) neck pickup (Passive/Ceramic)
    bridge pickup DiMarzio® PAF® 7 (H) bridge pickup (Passive/Ceramic)
    factory tuning 1E, 2B, 3G, 4D, 5A, 6E, 7B
    string gauge .009/.011/.016/.024/.032/.042/.054
    hardware color Cosmo black
    case/bag Hardshell case included
    NECK DIMENSIONS

    That's gorgeous, and I'm glad to see Ibanez have taken my constant comments about making their model names/numbers a bit catchier, this one really flies off the tongue.

    The term "LOL" gets thrown around a lot, but I did actually laugh out loud at that one. :lol:


    That is one gorgeous axe! If it plays and sounds anywhere near as good as it looks, you got a good one! Happy NGD!

    That's a gorgeous guitar! Is that a limited edition? We don't have those in Canada...

    I'm glad you like "catchy" names that are useless over a slightly longer name that actually provides useful info and makes perfect sense

    seriously do you expect them to come up with a totally unique name for every single variation of the RG?

    It's a joke, man. Besides, it's a slippery slope. There's no reason to stop at name-of-group-run-company + model name + string number + whatever + trem + finish. I need to know number of frets, body wood, neck wood, pickups, neck carve -- GIVE IT ALL TO ME IN THE NAME. THAT MAKES PERFECT SENSE.

    These limited runs of 752's Ibanez does are all so ballin, hopefully its a foreshadowing of the 2017 prestige lineup.

    Really loving the fact that Wired is able to do this. I almost grabbed one of those, as well as the white 7 they're doing right now.

    Holding out though. I have too many damn guitars right now so I need to thin the herd first.

    Major congrats. You definitely got a good one!

    These are such good looking guitars.

    I used to be a huge Ibanez fan but got bored of their looks... that's really been turning around the last year or two here.

    Jeffbro seems a bit stressed out, maybe he needs someone to talk to.


    Anyway, not wanting to harp on about names but WGRG WGRG WGRG over and over again is basically what I play on my seven string anyway, so in a way this is pretty accurate.
