Sleek and stealth with a wizard neck and HH configuration.
The cutting edge of Ibanez design, the Iron Label SIR27FD Series7-String Electric Guitar with DiMarzio Pickups is a marvel of form and function. Its signature body shape - sculpted, lightweight, and mahogany - is stronger and more musically responsive than guitars weighing twice as much. It features the Nitro Wizard Neck, a legendary super-thin, ultra-playable neck with road-tested durability. This model comes with DiMarzio® Paf 7™ Pickups in an HH configuration. Made in the US, these pickups offer deep, warm & rich dynamics. The Gibraltar Standard is a simple fixed bridge that was designed to unify with the guitar's body and provide optimal transfer of each string's vibration with a smooth surface designed to maximize playing comfort.

Comments about Ibanez Iron Label SIR27FD Series 7-String Electric Guitar with DiMarzio Pickups:
First of all, the pictures you see online are a bit deceiving, it looks closer to a dark-galaxy-black looking thing instead of a dark gray.
The seventh string is does sound a bit muddy and buzzes, but thicker strings solved the problem for me. I used D'Addario 11-49 and added a 66 for the 7th string. I also had to raise the action a bit to completely get rid the buzzing. I think 25.5" scale is a bit short for a 7 string guitar and the 10-59 7 string set doesn't provide enough tension for guitars of this scale length.
The PAF 7s sound clear even under high gain and articulate very well. I didn't like these at first, but the more I played this guitar the more I liked it.
The bridge seems bulky at first, but you get used to it after awhile.
Last thing and I notice this with most Ibanez guitars (Prestige line excluded) is that the frets do stick out a bit, not enough to cut your hand, but you definitely feel it there. I'm going to have a local luthier file them down one of these days.
