    I had one and found it to be to complicated to play live and to smooth to play in the studio. It had all the bells and whistles...I really did not like the Neck Radius or the top of the body it kinda dug into my chest. and The bridge pickup rocked but the neck was lacking..then once you clicked over to the piezo it dropped out and sounded like a totally different instrument..But hey I sold mine on ebay in 3 days and sold it for more than I purchased it for...I i was in a win ..win situation..I should have ketp it and tried EMG's or Dimarzio Blaze II bridge pickups but it turned me off so much that I got rid of it...I felt the same way about a Dean Dimebage Darrel Guitar was cool looking but played like dog dirt....Alot of Ibanez' feel like Ply wood too...but I will not go there,,Hope they put out another version of the JP from Musicman one with more options...Glad to hear what you dream of...good luck getting one someday....

    Hmm.. that's odd...
    I remember when I tried the EBMM Petrucci models (both 6 and 7) they played like a dream!! I thought they had the perfect sound.. :confused:

    I dont know the big deal, i like bolt ons fine. i think i actually prefer them.

    as do I- I've played very few set neck or neck-thru guitars that I've felt 100% comfortable on, and most of the guitars that I've really liked the tone of were bolt-on.

    Custom 7-string- at some point looking to grab a 7620 or 1527, get an alder body, finish with a blue-green stain and a tung oil finish on top, an aluminum pickguard, and a maple fretboard with either simple blue abalone dots or a loose, spiraling inlay inspired very loosely by John Myung's 6-string Yamaha bass inlay.

    Maybe if you were to do that, you could just snag a 7 string ibanez neck off of the classifieds at jemsite, and get a custom body built? i thinkt that'd be a bit easier,i mean if you're gonna ditch the body anyway.

    I'd have something like a 7-string version of the JEM 7VWH--white, with ebony fretboard and gold hardware. I'd probably do without the vine-of-life inlay and pearloid pickguard, though. As far as body woods, I would want to have one guitar with American basswood, and another with mahogany and maple top.

    but, back on topic... my dream 7string... hmm...

    i don't know, really. i've not played on many, just my RG7621 and that JP 7string. between the two, i like the JP. but, maybe in a fixed bridge, or one of those trems where you can string it through the back.

    my ideal 7!! (ive been waiting for somebody to ask)



    mahogony body w/ carved ebony top
    black binding on everything
    neck through construction
    string through body tune-o-matic type bridge
    Ibanez wizard7 style neck, w/ ebony fretboard with no inlays
    one single EMG in the tail, one volume and a killswitch (no tone knob)
    BLACK EVERYTHING! Even those new black strings!


    that doubles for my dream 6 too...
    so who wants to build me one for > 1000 dollars? :lol:

    Not worth it- a neck and an Edge 7 trem and trem hardware together would cost just about as much as an entire 7620. Hell, the 7-string locking nut alone lists for like $125- you're looking maybe $500 right there, so you might as well just buy the whole thing and at least get a couple knobs and switches tossed in there for free. ;)
