I've wanted one of these guitars since they came out, however life and other guitars got in the way, and it never happened until I got this beast in the mail yesterday. It's everything I could want from an Ibanez 7, from the stupid-easy playability, the Wizard neck molding itself perfectly to my fretting hand, its sleek, understated good looks, and as a nice bonus, for those of you who might consider leaving the stock pickups in, the Quantum 7's in here actually sound pretty damn good!! Nice tight low end, good midrange focus (without going full-Djunk), and a high end that adds clarity and definition without becoming screechy or hissy. Even if you do intend on changing pickups, the rest of this guitar is so damn great on its own that it's worth it, IMO. On another note, it may just be me, but man, do I ever love how this Walnut Flat finish looks/feels in person. My pictures do it absolutely no justice!
