Proud owner of a not-so-prideful RG7321. It actually feels weak to play 6-strings now...

i think for drop D the 7th string sounds even better... depending on what you're doing of course....

They're just standard ibanez ones in that photo, same as the RG7321, but dont get me wrong they're pretty fantastic for stock pickups, i just prefer the D-sonic in the bridge really. Gotta wait for my next paycheck so i can get the Air norton 7 lol

Also i found for the drop D stuff, work around the 7th string, it will make your picking a whole lot neater and accurate.

Ah ok might have to see what that sounds like in the neck position, i think ive just fallen in love with the S7420FM all over again. I have serious GAS for one of those with the blue flamed maple.....

Time to search Ebay i guess....

Dunno but i cant see myself needing those extra 2 frets when i have my good old ZR trem, especially now as Ibanez might be releasing it separately...

(S7420FM - Lo pro 7 edge trem) + ZR trem in black =

I dont know i seemed to have grown up a lot when it comes to the bar play now, i used to be doing harmonic squeals at every available point during a live set with my 6 (drop C and OFR) but now i like to use it a lot more tastefully, like when Vai or Petrucci use the very slight wobbles during slow solo's etc.
