OVERVIEW

Low tuning from the factory just got lower.

Ibanez's RGD models feature extra-long 26.5" necks and arrive with full-step down factory tuning. Original CAP-VK pickups are mounted and ready to ride. A lot of metal players hold their guitars low and the sharp-shaped RGD body achieves good balance and easier access to high frets for low-slingers.

Case sold separately.

FEATURES
  • Basswood body
  • 26.5” Scale 3-piece maple Wizard III neck
  • Bound rosewood fretboard with 24 jumbo frets
  • CAP VK17 neck pickup
  • CAP VK27 bridge pickup
  • Gibraltar Standard 7 bridge
  • Black pearl dot inlay
  • Full-step down factory tuning: A-D-G-C-F-A-D (low to high)

Go even lower with the 7-string RGD series. Order one today.

My Opinion of the RGD7421

By JoE DaMaGE

from Phila/PA

Comments about Ibanez RGD7421 7-String Electric Guitar:

I am using this guitar to jam on Fear Factory tunes. I do recommend this guitar, but keep in mind that the stock pickups dont sound too great. Too muddy and undefined, and also I found the factory strings to not be playable. Chords and fast picking sounded sloppy. With a strings gauge change and pickup swap, this guitar can sound great.
For the price pretty good specs. You can read em in the product description. A few things to note. 26.5 scale. Comes factory tuned one step down ADGCFAD with Daddario strings 10-59's. The neck is awesomely thin.
The quality seems decent. The stock pickups suck. I also feel that out of the box the string tension is too floppy for fast playing and recommend thicker strings. I had great success with a 11-49 set and a 62 gauge for the low A. I switched out the pickups for Duncan Blackouts and they sound great in this guitar. Major difference!!
This guitar is a good value, in my opinion.

Comments about Ibanez RGD7421 7-String Electric Guitar:

So this guitar is incredible. I did not order it through MF, so I ran into some problems actually getting it. My local music store placed an order, and long story short, Ibanez kind of just blew off my order. The store called, and I emailed a lot, and low and behold, it arrived two months later. I was excited, but the buzz was ridiculous. I took it to my store, they adjusted the action and string gauge and it was better but not fixed. So they called their luthier/guitar tech who fixed it (Ibanez never crowned the frets). Now it plays like a dream, and I'm swapping out the bridge pickup for a DiMarzio Crunch Lab. The stock is just kind of flat.

I would give four stars for Ibanez's terrible service and forgetting to craft part of the guitar, but the guitar in working shape is just so absolutely incredible.

Comments about Ibanez RGD7421 7-String Electric Guitar:

This guitar was playable right out of the box. I tuned it right up , plugged it in a shredded for hours!! Some people have said the pickups in this model are bad etc..but actually they are really good. I play through a Peavey 6505 head so maybe that helps having a good tube head!!?! Very good quality and for the price , you just can't beat it. Very pleased with this guitar!! \m/\m/

    Comments about Ibanez RGD7421 7-String Electric Guitar:

    This guitar will knock you out, its high precision all the way. Though the label reads made in Indonesia, I can't imagine that one made in Japan or anywhere else where great luthiers practice their art for that matter, could be very much better...it is perfection. So I recommend that if your considering this model don't delay buy it now before you loose the opportunity.

    Comments about Ibanez RGD7421 7-String Electric Guitar:

    This guitar soared past the expectations I had. I have played a few Ibanez guitars before but have never owned prior to purchasing this one. I've owned a 7-string before but not one like this! Feels and plays great, neck is really fast, came ready to play out of the box (I did some minor adjustments because I changed strings, currently using Dunlop "Heavy Cores" .10-.60) and it sounded amazing. The only thing that I will probably ever modify this guitar with in any way would be the pickups, they sound pretty muddy but Im also not running it through the greatest amp so soon I will experiment with other amps and edit this review if I feel the need to. But all in all its a great feeling/playing guitar, everything seems to be made from quality components, had it for about a month and I cant think of anything too bad to say. I would definately reccomend this guitar for anyone who likes lower tunings and is looking to dabble in the world of 7-strings.
