    Agreed. i sold my 7620 for not a penny less than what i paid for it.
    And the ONLY reason why i sold it was to fund the purchase of another ibanez, the UV777GR

    Ok so what should I get and how much should I spend....I mentioned previously that there were two Ibanez 7620 2000-2002 models, one had stock pups, while the other had upgraded Dimarzio's (350, 550 respectively)...as far as necks go...I'm easy to please...I play my Wolfie, which is like a baseball bat compared to me EBMM Silo....I believe Ibanez's have a very thin neck....is this correct?

    Well, the 2002 model is a RG7420...If its a 2000 model, it might be a 7620. I'd go for that and cahnge the pickups. The LoPro bridge is way better than the TRS2-7 bridge.

    Here's a few auctions i would reccomend. I Dont know how good/reliable the sellers are but the guitars they are advertising are good and are at a good price:

    Thanks bro, the knowledge I have been looking for....you should change your name to Love Breed, cause I feel the love in this room. If I don't reply ASAP its cause I can't view Ebay at work, it'll have to wait till I am at home...thanks!

    Pics aren't working- maybe upload one as an attachment, i think e-bay's blocked on this server.

    I'd have gone for a 7620 myself- call me biased, but for $350, if it's in good shape, that's a pretty good deal. The ballpark of $400 is about what you should expect to see them at ($550 was too high- it's like buying the 7620 and then paying for a new set of pickups a little above market price), and for that price I can't think of a better guitar on the market, 6 OR 7 string.

    Well I purchased the Washburn USA Custom...this time I used Buy It Now 599.99...afterall, the PUPS, Original Floyd are almost worth that...so what do you guys think? Oh I forgot its new!

    Here is the description:
    2001 Washburn Limited Edition Custom Shop USA Sonic model. 22 fret speed deamon, 3 way with dual Seymour Duncan Invader humbucker pick ups. Mahogany body (SUSTAIN for days) - neck is oiled maple (faster than anything I've ever played)- dark rosewood fretboard with the BUZZ system (THE BEST). Orig. Floyd with 18-1 grovers - excellent silver industrial finish in hidle (read will last through anything you can throw at it) and metalic purple,around front and back,real sharp combo. Comes with Washburn fitted aluminium flight case.

    That's a pretty good deal, considering those were like $2k street price when they came out.

    I though they looked good, but I would never pay $2k for one. $600 for a NOS one is a steal. ;)

    Thanks, I thought so...I missed one earlier, but the seller informed me that he was selling more, so I jumped on it...and I believe he still may have a few more

    um... That's kinda hot.

    The reverse headstock I could do without, but I'd have thought twice before passing that up, too. :) Not a huge mahogany fan, but with the right pickups it can work- the evo7 in my old 2027 was nearly orgasmic.

    Cool, I approve. :hbang:

    No, but something tells me that unless you're a hot chick, I'd rather look at your guitar. :D

    setup can make/break a guitar. and usually, what's hot for one might be not for another. and from the places i've been, the salesmen spend more time selling than setting up :rolleyes:

    I know if I owned a guitar store, I would have a little sink nearby and make people wash their hands before playing...I would also ensure that the instruments were set up properly and in tune!
