I plan on getting both of these at some point, but i wanted to get everybody's opinion on them anyway. One reason i'm asking this question is because i keep hearing so many good things about the 7620. CooleyJr has said it is the best guitar hes ever played, I hear it has one of the thinnest ibanez necks around (BIG plus for me), and that for the price you cant go wrong. I plan on replacing the pups and the body at some point when i get it. So besides all this, what would you say is the better qualities of the 1527M vs the 7620? I do love the idea of the maple FB on the 1527, but i suppose i could always replace the rosewood FB on the 7620 if i wanted to. Anyways enough rambling, which one of these would you take first and why?
