    :agreed:

    Especially with the hype about the passive pickup RC7 and fanned RC8. As well as the DSG.

    I guess it shows how out of touch their AR department is.

    Wow, i really cant stand Dean guitars as a whole. They never seem to put out anything that i'm remotely interested in, except for some of their LP clones.

    And what the fuck is up with that "Uli" thing?? Eeek!

    Actually, I got to hand it to Dean on that one. They did recreate Uli's Sky Guitar very well, and not in a "tribute" fashion, but in a new slightly modified way. I think they did it justice.

    Believe it or not, the Dean version is MORE tasteful than the original. If you can believe that. :lol:

    I agree. I'm especially happy to see Ibanez bringing back the Original Edges and Lo Pro Edges! Now if they'd just bring back the XL Series again...

    I saw that "Whole namm day video" at dean.com and those cheaper signature models looked nice... but cheap doesnt mean good... I personaly like the idea of michael angelo signature and the Mike Ammots V but for 300-500, but if the RC7X is also a cheaper model like these and much expensiver with lower quality so these must be the shittest of all...

    Supposedly, according to several members on here, the RC7X is actually a pretty good guitar. The only thing it really suffers from (which comes down to taste) is fairly small frets, at least compared to other super sized fret guitars.

    Question!?... If the frets are the only problem... what would be if they were replaced for bigger ones just for a few bugs...is it possible? or better said Worth?

    Replacing them would certainly "fix" the problem, if you didn't like the frets in the first place. Though, unless you absolutely love the guitar, it's not really worth it in my opinion. Though, you could probably find a local luthier to do it for a decent price.

    which is funny, seeing as rustey cooley said they have the tallest frets available, because that´s what he likes :lol:

    The RC7G (USA CS) has the giant frets, the RC7X (Korean) not so much. Though, perhaps it's only on the earlier runs.
