You get what you pay for, no-name pickups, tuners, bridge, but you could do alot worse for 200. Whats your budget and what music do you play?

You can snag a Used MIJ Ibanez RG7421 for about $200 ... way better than that model or the Rg7321. If you're patient, you can also get the discontinued. older model Schecter C-7 Diamond Series with stock Seymour Duncan JB/'59 PUs for ~$200 or less.

they should make a temporary 7 string sticky til this whole fad blows over.
