I have the RG1527 which is the same body wood and pickups so it should sound very simular- be warned, those pickups WILL need upgrading! In fact it seems a LOT like the RG1527 but with those cooler edges, so it should play amazingly. Those necks and fretboard are very flat which makes them perfect for shred.

I don't think it's worth that price however, especially as you will have to upgrade the pickups


EDIT: I haven't tried the ZPS trems but I've heard good things, so perhaps that justifies the price a little more. I don't like the position of that switch, though.. also check around before you buy, try and find a site that gives you a free hardcase (worth around $120-150)

I need this guitar!! But it stands that its factory tuning is in A-D-G-C-F-A-D, what if i want to play in Drop A or B Standard?

then tune it back up! that video is in B standard

It might not be meant for the higher tunings, if that's what the factory tuning is. I'd check that out before buying

its only a half inch difference, the tension wont be that dramatic, even the 6 string version is a 26" scale i believe, it shouldnt be a problem

Tuning it back up towards standard is fine. Maybe just use a slightly lighter gauge of strings than you normally would.

i played the guitar, it had old strings, so kinda hard to play, and it was all kinda greasy and stuff from being in a store and all. I personally wouldn't shell out 1700 for it, but like $1000 yeah, pickups would need upgrading. thats about it, its not super good, it has the potential with the right set-up to be really good. sounds fine on its own. if you really want a 7 string and if you've played it and liked it and don't mind paying the big bucks, then go for it i guess.
