    How about an alder bodied RG7? they hardly make ANY alder gutiars at all.

    I do like the guitar though. Maple boards are pretty sexy, and I do like th galaxy white. I suppose if i were to bother buying one i could throw a X2N in it. Really the only pickup i like in basswood thus far.

    You can add a couple J-Customs to that list of Mahogany bodied RG's if you're willing to go on the foreign market too. They're not on the website, but I understand that they're still in production.

    By the same token, you can also add the RG7EF2, which is basswood with EMGs.

    I should have clarified that I meant new models (think they were changing the bevels on the Xiphos 7 but that's the only "new" mahogany 7 they're supposed to be putting out this year...) made out of mahogany. Plus the Munky sigs I don't really consider at all because they are geared towards a specific audience, one being a cheap (both in price and IMO quality) and one being pretty expensive for what it is. :shrug: The S7 is nice but I like the RG body better and was hoping they would release another RG7 that was not a sig model missing knobs or in odd paint choices. The 1527M would be awesome if they were using a different material for the body IMO, that's all I'm saying. Not bashing tone (in fact I think hardly ANYONE said anything about it sounding bad :lol:) just wishing they had more options this year rather than regurgitating the same model they always put out with a different fretboard considering it's literally just a 1527 in a different color with a maple board. You shouldn't have to import a J Custom to get a 7-string Ibanez with a maple top and a mahogany body... :lol:

    Jackson uses alder for most of their guitars, but since they only make one 7 Ibanez might as well give it a try...

    ^^^^^^^^
    All true. My main deal is that it's been far too long that we've been left with no options, and now that a few are on the table, some want to bitch because they aren't to their specs. Clearly, you aren't one of those guys, as you've put up fairly solid points :cool:. My complaint lies with those who think that it's gotta be their "signature model" for it to be worthy. At any rate, a few options is a step in the right direction, we just haven't fully arrived yet.:metal:

    Haha, I think I'm one of those people. I find at least one thing wrong with every new 7 string that Ibanez release.

    S7320- Black, only 22 frets, trem
    RG7321- Basswood, black
    RG1527- Basswood, trem
    Xiphos- Silly shape
    Apex 1- Ugly finish (although I'm probably gonna get one tbh)

    I just wish Ibanez would bring out a non-basswood, hardtail RG. They need to start using TOM bridges more as well.

    With a white headstock I agree it would be too white. Its kinda like the earlier model of my 2570, the matching headstock made it too silver.

    Basswood or Mahogany I dont really care

    Shit, there goes paying off my credit cards. :lol: I'm so buying one of these, regardless of the basswood body. I'd prefer ash or alder myself, but I get the feeling they won't make this model for too long, and I'm sure as hell not going to wait and see if they improve it.
