    Hey all, I missed my old S7420BP that I sold about a couple years ago so I begged my buddy to sell me his. :D

    The story - He bought this S brand new from Musician's Friend in 1999 and has played it very little in the past 12 years. All that time, i've hounded him to sell me it as he found himself going back to sixers (Strats and Teles). Finally he decided to sell it to me so he could buy himself an Agile Texan, so much for him going back to sixers, right? :)

    This thing is MINT. I scored it for 400 bucks and couldn't be more happier! :woot:

    On the fretboard!
    That is my goto 7 when I need the best of all worlds! Mine has the wave fretboard markers and I have dropped Norton 7 and TZ 7 in neck/bridge, but I'd save that before anything or anyone if my house was going up in flames!

    I had one of these! But I didn't know how great of a guitar it was so I sold it =(
    I wish I could get another one, mine had 707s in it. I got it for an OLD RRV and and an emg set. BEST TRADE EVER! And then I sold it cause I wanted a better six =(

    CONGRATS on the NGD man!!
    Don't EVER get rid of this.

    It's my oldest and first 7 (i've had it since '98), and it's just simply a modded RG7620bk ('97) that I had refinished years ago. I also put white Blazes and a 3-way toggle. If you search "arctic white rg7620", you'll see a couple threads on it. :)
