    I will sell it for $300. They usually go for $400+ on ebay. I don't have any pics of the actual guitar but it looks just like this:



    There is a small chip where I put the x and a few chips on the back side, but I think I have touch up that is the right color.

    I agree also.

    But Ibanez's don't work well for that compressed drop tune, modern metal style.
    Thankfully, I tend to stay away from that kind of sound.
    My 7620 murders anything else.

    Well, its not so much modern metal though that uses that as it is limp bizkit/slipknot/etc. Type bands. the only modern metal bands that tune that low are death metal bands. Like Hypocrisy \m/

    I definitely think that neckthru 7-strings are the way to go if you want brutal drop-tuned rhythm guitar sounds.

    My 7620 is not as good at that as some of the other 7-strings I've owned, but it is better for playing lead, since it seems to sing more and has a lead guitarist-friendly neck and trem.

    I was just joking arround, I know what you are getting at.

    My prefered mode of tuning as of lately is actually tuned UP to an open B. Which is still brutaly damn heavy if you think of it in comparison to most traditional guitar work.

    well, in my (somewhat, but not overly) limited experience, I've found that the best "heavy" scooped tones come from taking a very middy guitar, using it to absolutely pummel your preamp, and then scooping the mids at the amp. the other ncie bonus with this is you still have this thick singing midrange at your disposal when you want to take a solo.

    Weirdbeard, I'm more of an upper-mid guy myself- round highs, strong upper mids, slightly scooped lower mids, clear bass. Think G3-era Petrucci. This probably explains why we're not seeing eye to eye (although, a lot of it also probably comes from the fact that, over the years, we've accumulated setups geared towards our preferred tonewood...)

    Hey, since we're talking tones...If you guys have listened to late 80s thrash (Like Master Of Puppets Era metallica, Earlier Testament, Forbidden, Heathen, Sodom, etc). Whats a good way to get that tone on My RG7620? I cant seem to find a good balance and the guitar is naturally got a lot more low end,i believe, i'll be sitting there jammin w/ my friend and he'll be usin a 6 string RGT42 w/ EMG and he has a lot less low end on the same settings...

    While I agree, I do still take a certain satisfaction in knowing that I'm right and all you guys aren't... ;)

    Kidding, of course.

    Hate, could be any number of things, although they DO make 7-string EMG's, which should get you a lot closer to your friend's tone, if the EMG sound is your thing... It'll take some routing, but a competent tech can do this for you without too much trouble.

    Sorry...had some problems with my login. I can't purchase your guitar (unfortunately), but I passed the info onto my brother-in-law. I'll let you know if he's interested. Thanks for your time.

    From what i have heard,EMGs sound very muddy and unclear my friend had them on his stienburger and he ended up putting in dimarzio. IMO a good combo would be Evolution and PAF or actually any neck pickup from Dimarzio

    Bare knuckle Holy Divers, but you have to push them like you would with your metal zone. Some of that old stuff that you mentioned is a Mesa. I've never had good luck with Ibanez basswoods tone-wise.

    Have you tried sticking an eq between the pre and post stage of the amp? Assuming there's an effects loop for that.

    I was listening to Sign of Evil and the drums and vocals are so far up in that mix.

    All this is a great reason to try the Epi. The tone is going to kill. Even if the intonation might be dodgy. And the playability is better, unless you're already dialed into longer scale lengths.
