The idealistic first 7 string I'd say.. I got this off of craigslist for 100$ so you can't go wrong as I'm not an Ibanez player and wish I was getting paid for my reviews but I wasn't expecting anything as every other Ibanez I played was trash..but this I was shocked it Felt like a real guitar well worth the retail price.Well when I got home and tuned it the neck felt like glass, perfect fretboard no buzz at all with very low action. Tones of sustain, almost as much as my neckthrough V.. this I'd play anywhere around the world. Pickups and tuners could be changed down the road to suit your needs.It's light, they say the necks thick like a bat but thats over exaggerated, I thought it was fine. The heel will let you go up to around the 17th fret fine and thats more than enough for the average player. Great acoustic tone, plugged in is a matter of taste as everyones got a different guitar rig.4 for features, tones of knobs like a les paul but these days every real guitar should have coiltaps.. also 24 frets are much better than 22.5 for quality , nothing wrong with it no chips or blemishes. Tones of compliments I got for it, seems im the only person who thinks its ugly so far.5 for value, I paid 100$ and it felt like 1000$, if you see one of these grab it! its not my first 7 string

worst 7 string to date

This thing is horrible. First of all, it's a cheap ibanez. The high-priced ibanezes don't even stay in tune, so i wasn't surprised when this went out of tune only after five minutes of solid player. whoopideedoo. Second of all, ibanez cheap pick ups, no need to go further. third, The neck is a little thick, like the shecters, that's my opinion that the wizards are better. Check out the Rogue 7 string, it's much less expensive, and i heard good things. This is crap.

Ibanez 4 Life

By Mikey Z.

from Greenville, SC

See all my reviews

First question, who makes and has started and has the most experience with 7-strings?.... Nuf said!!! The day I got it I wore the strings out. It plays comfortably standing up or sitting down. The stock pickups are a bit of a down fall, but active EMGs are my future plan. This guitar without a question is great for the money, and plays like a much more pricey axe. I highly recommend it.

nice guitar.

By camsy666

from Bakersfield

See all my reviews

i got this guitar about 3 years ago, and im still pretty happy with it. its got a mahogany body and maple neck, and it sounds great. the tone sounds good clean and distorted, and the sustain is great. the neck is heavier and tends to slide down, but i don't really mind. i incorporate the "over-the-neck" style in some of the songs i write, so the ease of lowering the neck makes it easier to accomplish this. it stays in tune pretty well. the only problem is the input jack. it tends to come loose, so it needs tightening every few months. but thats not that big of a problem.i highly recommend this guitar if your looking to add a seventh string to your arsenal.

Great Guitar

By monsterzero

from Minneapolis, MN

See all my reviews

This is a great guitar with great tone and playability. When I got it there were some loose nuts and bolts, but fortunately I know how to use a wrench and screwdriver. The nuts on the tuners were loose, explaining the tuning problems that others have mentioned. After I tightened them the tuning was locked as solid as any guitar I've ever played. It is neck heavy, to make it more comfortable I simply put a small pocket on my strap near the tail end and put a one pound lead shot weight into it. Viola, perfect balance.

Very Muddy Pickups

By XeNO

from Chicago

See all my reviews

Stock pickups are decent, but far too midrangy for my taste. They muddy the tone quite a bit, and with a POD Pro, I have been unable to remedy the problem. When playing compared to an Omen 7-string--the tone is night and day different on clarity. After replacing the pickups with the Duncan JB and SH-2 the guitar came alive. For the price--it's a very good guitar. It's more comfortable to play than the Omen-7. It has more tonal control--I like the separate tonal control for neck and bridge channels. I like a good, crunchy sound with a tight tone, the best of both worlds--powerful dark chugging, with KMDFM/Toolish intricacy. I think they chose midrangy pickups to compensate for the mahogany guitar and the whole fact of the 7 string.

a beginner's 7-string

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

as my first guitar, i've had no major complaints. the assembly is solid, the neck doesn't feel unnatural and the pickups are decent for the price. however this is still a low-end instrument. the cuts for the neck pickup on mine are botched and a bit crooked plus i've had to deal with the cheap tailpieces which i've replaced for around $60 CAN ($40ish US). all and all a good instrument for a beginner.

A good ol' seven string

By Eric-p9jHp

from Northern Kentucky

See all my reviews

Any seven string is considered worthy, due to its nature of being...a seven string. And in that category, there is a system, tone and feel. A seven will sound big, reguardless, because of that thick guage string and its tuning. But to sound good, the pickups have to be adjusted correctly and then the feel part comes in, string tightness. Some seven strings are made oddly, where the strings are very floppy and chunky, others have a super tight resonance and make it sound much better. This guitar has a medium feel. Not too tight, not to sludgy. Of course this adjustment can be amended by either increasing or decreasing the guage of the string. But for tone, this guitar is adequate. I have put a dimarzio tone zone in it to give it more punch, but the stock pickups are good with distortion. However, i find they lack a good clean sound, due to the fact that i have tried it on multiple amps. The neck pickup sounds clean, but lacks output, i may put a duncan 59 in it, but this guitar is not my main axe. I must say it plays very well with the double cutaway and with the thick mahogany body, has tones of resonating room and is bad for heavy stuff. With the dimarzio, it cleans up the brights and makes them brighter and by puting 58's for the low b(which i Tune one step down adgcfab) it has a tight punch with good flavor. Get one, the finish isn't flashy, but will never smudge(pewter) and having separate volume and tone knobs gives you the heavy to a bluesy sound real quick or can act as a great kill switch so if feedback is a problem during a pause or something, that can be eliminated. Get one, drop an emg or something in it,(i have 707's in my other guitars, but this one i didn't feel like routing like all the others) and it will rumble your parents asses when they sleep.

OK 7 string

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I like the way this guitar sounds but the quality of it isn't all that great. the input jack fell out about four months after I got it. The neck points toward the ground because it weighs more than the body of the guitar and one of the neck strap pins stripped out.

This is a very versatile instrument that has never let me down and has withstood the beating that it gets on the road without suffering any real retriment.This guitar would be ok for the pro or beginner that wants a well built instrument.
