OVERVIEW

An affordable, hard rocking 7-string.

The Ibanez RG7321 7-string electric guitar's pickups and pickup placement provide the hard-edged cutting tone needed for heavy rock.

Since 1987, many players have selected the Ibanez RG as their weapon of choice for visiting sonic mayhem on the metal masses. With the right choice of pickups and flat, fast necks, the RG crunched its way to classic status.

As heavy as it rocks, the RG7321 is made of basswood, a comparatively lightweight wood, which makes it very comfortable for extended playing. With a good balance of highs and lows, basswood is right in between alder and mahogany in sound character. 24 jumbo frets offer easy playing for leads and chording and the Fixed 7 string thru bridge provides great tone and sustain. Total tonal choice is provided 5-way switching of two Ibanez Axis 7 humbuckers with coil-splitting capabilities.

If you've always wondered what you could do with a 7-string guitar, now is the time to find out.

FEATURES
  • Wizard II-7 5pc. maple/walnut neck
  • Basswood body
  • 24 jumbo frets
  • Bound rosewood fingerboard
  • Fixed 7 bridge
  • AH27 Axis Seven 2 bridge pickup
  • AH17 Axis Seven 1 neck pickup

    For a decent price this guitar is worth the investment if you want to branch out into expanding your range as a guitarist. Granted the stock equipment on the guitar is a bit undesirable and lackluster, the guitar itself boasts great potential with the addition of aftermarket parts.

    Once I got the money together I purchased an EMG 707x pickup and installed it to the bridge section. All I run is the bridge pickup and the tone went from being muddy and rather untamed, to being controlled, defined, and much more responsive in nature with the addition of a little more sustain. In good time I will add another pickup but buyer beware,you will have to make some changes to the insides of this guitar as it is passive; not active.

    Metal players will love this rig but if you want to do some more clean bypass sounding tones, look elsewhere because the natural tone is not that special at all.

    I have a photo of my rig to demonstrate just what you can do with this rather flexible guitar.

    Take Care and Thanks for Reading!

    So I actually got this guitar for about 200. It was used and needed some work nothing serious just little things. But the first thing I did was find a pick guard and put it on. The second thing I did was swap out the pick ups. The ah1 and 2 pick ups are awful. They have a very mud like quality to the b string. So I swapped them out for blaze 7. And actually a really great guitar now . But stock I feel for any person looking to actually do anything serious you'll need to do a little bit of work. The neck is great it feels close to the uv777. Some of the necks on this one I've played several, the frets stick out and dig into your hand and need smoothed down. For the price you find many like this one. It's great once you build it up.

    Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

    I got this guitar a couple months ago, and I'm very happy with it, it has a great feel, it's great for almost all music styles, the neck is thin and great for lead playing,the only problem i had with this guitar were the pickups, they sounded too low and transparent for a metal guitar like this, but i changed the pickups for a couple Dimarzios and everithing is fine now.

    Solid 7 with a little tweaking

    Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

    Comfort: Basswood makes guitar super lightweight and easy on your back to stand up with for shows and such. Almost perfect neck for a 7. Can reach all frets as well as any other standard scale length. Only thing that made the transition between this and a 6 string was muting all the strings at once with my right hand, which is no fault of the guitar. Extremely easy to play and almost no weird transition phase playing it.

    Features: Pretty basic guitar. Relatively flat black color. Basic fixed bridge. Only things that aren't just entirely standard are the number of strings and the 5 way selector.

    Tone: Poor is a nice way to describe it with stock pickups. Ibanez pups typically lack any lively tone and make for a really boring and disappointing experience. This is easily fixed though as I'll explain next.

    Improvements to make:
    1. Change pups - I replaced the stock pickups with a Liquifire in the neck and Crunch Lab in the bridge. Allows you to get a wide variety of tones between those and the 5 way selector and make this guitar perfect for the price.
    2. Maybe add a really light lacquer to the back of the neck if you want to slide with a little more ease - not necessary by any means but might make it more comfortable.
    3. Adjust the action, just like with any other guitar.

    Overall I give this guitar a 4/5, if it came stock with better pickups it would earn a perfect rating from me for the price it's at. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone as long as they change the electronics out.

    Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

    this guitar is the best your going to get for its price.
    the wizard neck is real slick and feels great. if you want a 7 string but are scared of the thick neck have no fear this is very playable. the pick ups are not the best but they sound good distorted and clean. i have had a minor problem with fret buzz but thats to be expected with a 7 string. the strings themselves aren't to great they work for standard but if your going to tune ADGCFAD etc. your gonna want some heavey gauge strings. this guitar also only comes in black. All in all great guitar for its price ibanez is the best of the best

    Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

    This is a great guitar, right out of the box. The build quality is excellent. It is a solid guitar, and its also simple, no frills design. That is something I like, but others may not.

    It has a thin neck, especially for a 7 string. Trasitioning from a six string to this, is no sweat.

    Alot of people complain about the pickups, but personally, I dont think they are that bad. The bridge position gives me Djenty tones. The neck position gives me deep cleans and warm overdriven leads. The coil taps sound great on the clean channel. Sounds very strat-like.

    Overall, a great axe at a great price. I only wish it came in more colors. White? Blue?

    Awesome Guitar, but......

    Ask me a question

    Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

    Awesome Guitar! I put some green knobs and planning on putting in some green Dimarzio blazes to match them, just like the UV7BK. With the stock Pups it can handle koRn, Deftones. Just like i said too muddy, but thats all personal preferance too....
    Well first of all, its a awesome guitar, got mine for christmas and loved it ever since, its perfect for almost any type of music. Simple controls, 2 Humbucker pickups, Volume, Tone, and a 5 Way Selector Switch. It includes a fixed bridge, and neck has 24 frets, nothing to special....
    I like everything on it, only 1 thing I didnt like was the Pups, they sounded to muddy, im planning on puttings some blazes in them.....

    Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

    Its it worth the price!
    Great guitar, plays great, only problem are the pick ups, not the best, but im swapping the bridge pick up for a Dimarzio X2N-7 pick up. the intonation was off so i had a hard time keeping it in tune, but overall worth the buy!! \m/

    great guitar

    By justin scala

    from detroit

    Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

    overall a great guitar that is worth buying. mine is all stock and I dont see a need to change anything. I dont use a 7 string to gig but i use it to sit down and guitar nerd out on the practice amp. im picky and I love it. nothing like a RG
    fantastic features. has everything i could ask for...
    guitar is quality thats usually un heard of for the price. neck kicks arse pickups sound killer people said they sound cheap but a guitar pickup is a hard thing to screw up. for extreme metal tone you need a metal sounding amp or pedals, which i have and the pickups sound very good (ive played every renowned "high crunch"duncan and dimarzio out there and like these just as well) the guitar performs beyond what i had expected
    good value... hard to beat

    Love It !

    By tyler blankenship

    from Montgomery, AL.

    Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

    Overall, this guitar is a great instrument. I love it. I'm a huge fan of 7 strings, and this guitar is a very great looking and sounding guitar. a MUST BUY for a first 7 string. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!
    Low Price. Thin fast neck. Solid Construction. Great pickups.
    This Guitar has GREAT sound and output. I use mine for Deathcore music and its a perfect fit. I also play some alternative jams on it and the clean settings sound VERY smooth! No fault with sound quality for the RG7321.
    Plays like its worth a LOT more than what its priced at. If you wanna give a 7 string a try, this is a great deal for a good quality instrument without paying a ton of money, or paying for a cheap piece of garbage. The RG7321 is a GREAT BUY!
