    So this is my first Ibanez guitar. I tried a few models before setting on this, the RGD2127FX and the RGD7UC. The former was just "meh" and the latter, while a good guitar I didn't quite click with and the price tag is just ridiculous. So once I got my hands on the 752, I instantly fell in love with it. The neck feels amazing and is so easy to play. After playing a Schecter for so long, I wonder why did I ever buy one. For stock pickups, the PAF7 sound great. The price/value point is in my opinion excellent. I would have gladly paid a few hundred more for this guitar. Bottom line is, I just can't put the guitar down, I think I've become an Ibanez-fan boy! :yesway:

    Congrats!
    The light in the first picture makes it look like it has an arched top. At first I was confused as to what I was seeing and thought it was some new limited edition RGA 7 string :lol:

    Awesome guitar man! I have a 652 and its awesome! May I ask what style you play and how you think they work with the PAF7s? I've been thinking about grabbing a 752 at some point.

    I play somewhat progressive metal. The pickups sound really good on clean and ambient tones and to be honest I'm not disappointed in the rhythm tone either, at least not yet. I guess time will tell whether I'm going to swap them or not.

    This guitar is just essentially Ibanez (well maybe is does need an Edge to be as stereotypically Ibanez as possible). I say that as a compliment because I love stripped down, functionally sound guitars.
