Hey guys!! Just wanted to show you the new 7 string that I just got! :hbang: Ain't she beautiful :agreed: I ordered the Ibanez RG752LWFX and Bare Knuckle Pickups all the way from the Axepalace and Nick was kind enough to do extra routing in order for the BKP covers to fit in the cavity without the extra charges. What a lad :bowdown: Initially, I was sitting on the fence whether to get burnt chrome or camo battleworn. Ended up going for the camo battleworn w/ bulb etched and I think it really fits the guitar perfect :yesway::yesway::yesway:

The guitar feels awesome!! The Wizard 7 neck plays unbelievably comfortable and the Gibraltar Standard II-7 bridge enables a really low action. Not to mention.. LOOK AT THAT LIMBA! :shred::shred: Good work Ibanez, really outdid yourselves in this one!!

Tonewise, Bare Knuckle Pickups are known for their clarity. You can get more definition in notes and chords depending on your picking hand which really brings out the characteristics of your playability. The Juggs crushes balls!! Misha reckons that the Juggs sounds great in most tone woods but are most at home with Basswood :agreed:

Overall, I'm happy with the guitar and I highly recommend going through Nick and the Axepalace when it comes to BKPs. Awesome customer service and an even more awesome guy! :metal:

You can seriously tell a difference in terms of quality and feel. I love my RG721RW but my RG752LWFX seriously blows it out of the water!

I will never understand the choice of the Bulb etching (unless you're a super fanboy, obviously)... seems to me like it makes it less of your own and more of someone else's guitar.

Either way, the axe looks killer and the camo looks pretty cool in it, too. :yesway:

I for one quite like the idea hahaha since the juggs are in fact Misha's signature pickups! :yesway:

I find it would not be complete without the bulb etched logo since I believe Dylan from Daemoness guitars helped design the logo (Who is also an awesome luthier btw) :hbang:

I guess at the end of the day, it comes down to personal preference! Haha and thanks btw, I've seen your guitars and they're absolutely stunning :shred:

Not to hijack your thread, but I just ordered a bare knuckle black hawk bridge pup (alnico V) for my stratocaster. How do like them in that rosewood RG 6 string you've got there?

Also, HNGD! I love my RGD2127fx, but that limba is some kinda sexay. Almost makes me wish I got one of those 752s instead, almost. Ahahaha.

The Blackhawks are superb pickups! I used to have a pair of BKP Miracleman in the RG721RW but I find that it lacked the mids I've been lusting for. When I installed the BKP Blackhawks (Ceramic bridge) it just blew me away and sounded exactly what I wanted all along though it had less output compared to the Miracleman.

And thanks man! I've got a mate with an RGD2127FX and it's awesome! The limba is pretty sweet, probably better in real life. These pictures doesn't do the guitar justice!
