Other than the headstock I think it looks frickin sweet... love the maple neck with the simple dots.
So... more or less when will the new guitars hit the streets?
Rich Harris seems like a cool dude that knows his shit. Maybe his set-ups are top notch but I think there's better deals to be had elsewhere online.
I'd do my own set up, and if it needed it, fretwork done locally for 100$ or so, and save 600$ off of his shitty 1600$ UV's.
You can do what you want, I am just trying to tell you guys about a place to get amazing setups. I'm sure there are others that can do the same, but Rich does know his Ibanez
I'm just looking out for other players because I know how it is to have the guitar just right.
But I do understand about getting deals, especially with money so tight lately
the only problem I have with buying from Ibanezrules, is ideally, I'd like to get my guitar set up AFTER it gets thrown around by UPS across the country.
Care to elaborate?
i'm not too keen on the design, but a maple FB is a really nice feature
also, i really don't get this "baswood = crap" attitude... a basswood guitar can sound great when suited with the right pickups (like a evo7). i see absolutely no problem with it being basswood. I still wish ibanez would offer 7s in different tonewoods, though.
I hope they're gonna offer it in a few colors...fucking black headstock and the damn basswood again......at least they gave it a maple fretboard and a whammy
It always had a tremolo system. In fact the only difference is the Maple fretboard and Galaxy White paint.
I usually do my own as well, and I'm now "in the biz" so I can get my guitars direct from Hoshino, but to be fair, I got my Apex from Rich and payed $1 more than retail for it. I literally only payed a dollar over what AMS, MF/GC, and SamAsh had listed. I had the money at hand at the time, and I guess I was curious about all the hype regarding Rich, so I went with him. Awesome work, and a good price considering the work he put in, but yeah, saving some coin and working it out yourself is respectable as well. Seems to be that fretwork is the only problem for most DIYer's.
Well they could have done a slightly different version of the re7321 and then it wouldn't have a trem :-\
the more I look at the pics, even though it has a black headstock, the more I want one
I'm glad the headstock is black. IMO with the white body and maple fretboard, it needs SOMETHING to contrast with, and I think hardware/headstock was a good way to go.
*sigh* If only it was mahogany/alder/virtually anything but basswood or plywood.
Damn it ibby, you're so close to having something I'd buy. WHY IBBY, WHY?!?!
Everyone: Stop complaining about basswood. If you don't like it then don't buy it. There are now more Mahogany 7 strings available than there are Basswood.
And the new Mahogany/Maple fixed-bridge RG.
RG7321 (but this might not even be in production anymore)
Indeed, that brings Ibanez' count of 7 strings available outside Japan up to a possible total of 9, which is pretty freaking good.
Anyone notice the trem isn't cut long?
As in, not like:
That's because they're two different trems. The Edge-Zero uses the same intonation tool as the ZR. Also, it might have a longer intonation range than the Edge-Pro.
