Welp, after a while I decided to bite the bullet on the Jackson JS22-7 after I failed to find any decent examples of an Ibanez RG 7 string in the price range. Either way, I'm happy with the purchase and I'm hype to do some work on this thing. It's my first 7 and I'm looking forward to progressing as a musician with it. I've got a couple plans for it, gonna start with getting some new PUPs as the stockers are pretty garbage. Gonna look for a decent, fairly cheap zebra set as I think it'd look awesome with the maple fretboard, which I'm also gonna do a couple coats of tru oil on. Anyways, happy NGD to me!
