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.

Solid 7

By David-e0R1J

from NE Ohio.

See all my reviews

Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

I got this about 3 months ago and I haven't put it down. It's an all around great guitar, but it needs upgrades for it to be anything special.

When I got it the action was set up great, the neck was straight. Everything good you'd expect out of the box.

The finish is about as basic as they come, black. Good color, but I wish they made some different colors. It does show a lot of small surface scratches and you'll be able to notice a chip a mile away. The paint does seem thick enough to withstand a pretty careless player. I'd give the finish a 9/10

The neck, it is a bit wide, it feels a little wider than it should be. It's a 5 piece neck with skunk stripes, It's thin and easy to grab. This neck is much thinner than most guitars, so beware if you dislike thin necks. It feels like a satin finish neck, either a thin finish or no finish at all, which I'm not too big a fan of. Rosewood fretboard is just like any other, nothing too special, although the specific types of Rosewood Ibanez uses dries out pretty quickly, I'd suggest getting some fretboard oil. Overall though, the neck is just a little too wide for my liking, thin and fast, and everything you'd want for a shredder type 7. Again, a 9/10

The pickups are a bit muddy in the low end, the highs are surprisingly bright and the mids are there, but lacking severely, poorly EQ'd from Ibanezs perspective. I play a wide variety of music from church music to the most extreme underground industrial, and then Djent. These pickups, for my tastes, can't do that too well, so I through a Seymour duncan SH-8 and Liquifire in and it made a HUGE difference in tone. The stock pickups lacked in upper mids, and mids generally. The Seymour duncan and Dimarzios can scream like a banshee and cool down enough to soothe the old peoples ears in my church. My suggestion? Replace the pickups unless your amp is suited to muddier pickups. For this price, you can't beat it. You can have a guitar you'll take with you till your grave. I'd give these a 5.5/10

Wood quality, Some people dislike basswood, it doesn't go to well in this guitar IMO, it makes the bottom end too muddy in conjunction with the pickups, if you swap the pickups out, you'll be happy with your choice. The wood quality is nice and dense. You could throw this down a flight of stairs and have to worry about the stairs instead of your guitar. I give the wood an 8/10

The nut and bridge are very, very mediocre. The nut is made out of plastic, which virtually kills all the sustain you can get. Many places sell brass or bone nuts slotted much better. This nut was slotted poorly and caused many string slips, or the string could hardly fix through the nut. The bridge is made out of steel, I think, and is a little higher quality than most of the competitors bridges, and the older style bridge that came on these guitars. It's a Gibralter branded Ibanez bridge, which isn't bad. I'd say that the bridge is something I'd like to change somewhere down the road, not something that would need to be changed right away. I'd give the nut a 6/10 and the bridge a 9/10.

The tuners are of decent quality, Ibanez locking tuners, which probably are a 8:1 or so ratio (and if you're not a gear head this is decent) which does it's job, tunes the guitar, but a lot of the times it will take half a turn to hear a slight difference, or you touch it and it falls into drop Q. The locking mechanism works pretty well and you don't have to worry about the guitar strings slipping back through the tuner when you put a new set on. They were a little difficult to figure out at first, and I think a few of mine were installed wrong because 3 of the 7 turn a different way, but I can't gripe, they tune pretty well. Most likely the last thing I'd replace on this guitar. I'd give the tuners a 9/10.
Some pretty good locking tuners, plastic nut, rosewood fretboard, stainless steel frets, very thin but a tad bit wide neck, dot inlays, 5 piece neck, bolt on neck, cheap Ibanez pickups, solid bridge, gloss black finish. Good features for a low budget 7 string.
The guitar is what you'd expect for a this price of 7 string, cheap low quality pickups, decent bridge, decent tuners, and solid finish. Solidly put together, overall, an okay guitar at stock. Good quality for 400 dollars. I was midly impressed with this guitar.
The price for a decent 7 is pretty high, but at the same time, for one of the cheapest 7s on the market you can't go wrong. If it had a little better pickups in it, it would be a much better investment. Decent value, although is does have significantly less resale value from what I've seen.

Great Guitar

By Casey Violette

from Maine, Madawaska

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/

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.

Awesome Guitar, but......

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.....

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!

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

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?

All I have to say is WOW

By jon-E4-K1

from US

See all my reviews

Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

This is my 6th Ibanez and right now I think its one of the best I've owned. This guitar screams metal plus with an adjustment of string tuning and a capo you can play almost any tuning metal bands are playing with these days. What surprised me the most was the pickups. Most stock pickups are just that, stock, but these sounds pretty good. I've only had it for about 3 hours now and been playing it for 3 hours and I had to write a review to share how awesome I feel this guitar is. There are only 2 things I would like to change. 1) The nut. It comes with a black plastic nut which doesn't affect playing at all but looks cheap so eventually it will be replaced with something better. 2) The pickups. Even though these pickups sound good I'm more of a Dimarizo or EMG guy so when the money is available they will be swapped out. As for the rest of the guitar its really awesome. The neck is super fast and comfortable to play and the action is perfect. I'd recommend this guitar to beginners and advanced players. It offers a lot and is capable of several types of music. Stock it is built for metal but with a few changes it would easily work for almost any genre. Buying guitars is like buying shoes, you just got to try them on and for me this was a great buy.

By sexy beast

from North Carolina

Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

This guitar is great for every style you can imagine. Personally i'm a metal fanatic,but I also enjoy to dabble in other styles such as jazz, rock, and blues. The versatility of this guitar is unmatched by the quality. What i admire about Ibanez is no matter whether its a low range guitar or mid range or prestige, they always put the same amount of quality and price into every guitar. I would suggest purchasing this guitar for anyone that enjoys playing lots of different styles, because of the 7th string. The only critique i have about this guitar, are the pickups are bit fuzzy and do not produce the true sound the true guitar is creating.Iwill probably replace them with emgs 707 or seymour duncan blackout 7 string set, either way great guitar i would suggest purchasing.

7 Strings of Heaven

By buffalosoul92

from Chicago

Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

When I was at my local music store I was fiddling around with some guitars and I had about a grand to spend on a guitar. After hours of playing it was between this and the Schecter Hellraiser 7. I there were many things I like more about this than the schecter.1) It was about 500$ cheaper 2)The Hellraiser had a sticky neck 3)It just flat out played better. so all in all i had to buy it. The only problem i have had was with the bottom b string going out of tune but otherwise it is great. People complain about the bottom end being too low but I just turned the bass down on the amp and turn the trebel up and it sounds like I pulled the guitar out of john petruccis hands in the middle of panic attack. The neck is an instant guitar orgasm for any shredder. It was the best purchase of my young life.

GREAT 7-string for the price

By Hao

from Minnesota

Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

If you like the feel of an Ibanez and are looking to get your first 7-string, I would HIGHLY recommend starting here. The Wizard-II neck makes the width of the neck less overwhelming. As a dual-humbucker model, you can get a great versatility in sound (wired as is), and if you really desire the single coil sound, the combination of 5-way switch and 4 wire pickups allow you to have that done without getting new pickups. Personally, I love the sounds I can get from stock Ibanez pickups, and so I don't think I will ever replace these. My only complaint is that the fret ends are slightly rough, but it is not noticeable when playing. The innovative truss rod cover on the headstock should really be seen and used more often.

I bought this guitar just for fun. It is a typical Ibanez guitar. Very well made and VERY comfortable. It sounds a bit muddy/unclear so I am replacing the pickups witm EMG-81-7 pickups. The guitar is a heck of a bargin. I will probibly replace the machine heads and bridge with locking ones. Even replacing all these items it is still a heck of a deal because of the quality and comfort..

Comments about Ibanez RG7321 7-String Electric Guitar:

I've been interested in getting a 7-string guitar lately, but was concerned that the neck would be too big for my small hands. I was looking for the Schecter Damien, but the music store didn't have one, so I tried this baby out. No worries for me. I was sold on it and took it home. I've been a fan of Ibanez since I bought an Ibanez acoustic in Italy in 1994. I love the tone and I get pretty good sustain out of it. Good value for the price. I have a feeling it'll win out over my Westone Spetrum II as my main guitar from now on!
