Head and Munky can't be wrong!
The fabulous Korn duo has inspired an awesome design with custom DiMarzio open humbuckers, a K7 logo blazing across the 12th fret, and the out-of-your-way but right-where-you-need-it U-Bar locking trem system (which can be replaced with a standard bar). Glow-in-the-dark side markers keep you oriented on that vast expanse of 24 fat frets and 7 strings. A genuine mahogany body provides resonance and the rosewood fretboard feels fabulous.

This Ibanez 7 is one sick monster. I LOVE this guitar. Even though I changed pickups in this because I couldn't get "my" tone with the DiMarzio's. I highly recommend this beast. The Wizard II neck and the RG style body just feel so right. I was able to set my action very low with no annoying buzz. I only have 2 minor complaints with this guitar. 1, is the "B" or 7th string. It sounds a little more "mellow" than the other strings, even after string changes and even using stainless steels (which is an extremely bright tonal string). My other complaint, which I have with all floating tremolo guitars, is the "spring sound". Meaning, if you do quick and hard mutes, you can hear the springs. It's OK if you're playing live, but very annoying when recording. I have found a way to dampen the springs. I wrapped the springs with a soft "styrofoam" type material. Actually, I cut pieces off of a hospital bedding material. It sounds like a strange technique, but it worked. As I said before, I highly recommend this guitar. It's a little pricey, but, you get what you pay for and what you get with this guitar is one GREAT guitar.

This guitar is not good at all. It is really expensive and you can get a Gibson, Fender, or an ESP with the money - guitars that actually have pick-up selectors and tone knobs. The U-Bar is really unusual. There is no need for a 7-String guitar unless you play nu-metal stuff. The tone on this piece of crap is limited. The distortion doesn't even have any tone!! Get a Gibson instead - some are cheaper and have more range in tone.

I own this guitar about 1 year and a half ago, and I love it's sound, it's perfect. The problem is that if you're searching for a 7string to play progressive, hard passages, virtuoso stuffm etc. this is NOT the guitar. From the part of the 12th fret it gets really uncomfortable to play there. there is no use for the 24 frets, it should have only about 16 frets. this guitar is for playing hardcore, nu metal, stuff like that, I own also a Jackson js -1 dinky, and I like much more to play solos in this guitar. So if you're searching for a guitar to play nu metal, hardcore and music without virtuosos solos and things like that, this is your guitar, if youre seraching a 7 string to play Steve Vay or John Petrucci, try another one.
I am shocked on how well this guitar plays and sounds. I was skeptical because it was the signature series guitar of Korn but this thing takes the cake. It feels and looks like it was built with quality in mind. The neck is slim and is easily to convert if you are used to 6 string. Nice features and monster sound. I dont play Korn tunes or play anything close to it but this is my favorite 7 string that I have played. The U Bar is an awesome feature and allows for diversity in your style. I definitly recommend this guitar.
This is an all around good guitar. Its not just for playing NU metal which sucks. Its good for shred,steve vai,dream theater,nevemore type stuff.I got it for 700 dollars in perfect condition so it was totally worth it to me. The 7 string thats better than this is the universe 777. if you find a good deal go for it. Also the pickups arnt that great
played this at my friend's music shop. Probably the only ibanez i'll ever like. Actually stays IN TUNE. If you have the money and you want to tear it up with deep riffs, this is a great guitar for it. With that U bar, it's easy to dive bomb to hell and back.
The pick-ups used on this 7-string are great. I bought this guitar and it immediately became my favorite guitar.
I love this guitar it is the best seven string I have ever played. The pickups are sizzling hot and very chunky. The neck isn't very difficult to get used to either, it was actually pretty easy. The paint job is sweet too. The only downside is that it's rather expensive, but it is worth it.
No one knows how amazing this guitar is until they play it... I can't even tell you how good it is, and I own the **** thing! But if you're ever in the mood for some "get down dirty" and "heavy" kind of music - this guitar will take you farther than that!
The K7 is phenominal guitar. The DiMarzio humbuckers are "low output" but it gives them Korns signature sound, which is completely beautiful. The UBar Trem system makes for some very cool bend effects. The glow in the dark dots are also a sweet feature. The only complaint I have comes from every guitar with a floating trem . It is DEFINITELY not as easy to tune. It makes me about an hour and 15 to tune my K7 correctly because of the sensitivity of it. But because it is a locking trem, when you do finally get it in tune, it STAYS!!
It's a great guitar. I actually feel like I am KoRN. The tones are heavy, and very fat sounding. You can totally punish the cranium with this axe.
Well, I know alot about guitars and i must admit, this guitar is a pretty good when it comes to playing your hardest, but the value of it is not worth it, i say wait a few months for the price to lower, but its a average deal
