    I have an RGD2127z with Nazgul/Sentient. For the price it should have came stock with DiMarzios, but the upgrade really doesn't cost a whole lot. Badass guitar indeed!

    Can't speak for the KM-7. Wish local guitar stores carried it so I could test it out. Based on specs, the KM-7 is extremely attractive. Overall build quality goes to Ibanez thus far. Schecter is still working out the kinks.

    I would go with the Schecter, but that's just because I don't care for basswood guitars. Never tried an ash one though. If you could just try them out and see which one you like more.

    Definitely try them out. The RGDs have a very good reputation though.

    I don't get this, some of the best guitars are basswood (suhr uses it extensively) / Its a tonal preference not a budget reason that Ibanez went with basswood.

    KM-7 is a better guitar out of the box and a better value, the Ibanez may be made a bit better but that's debatable.
