So i went to the guitar shops today and noticed a new 7-string guitar (VERY rare that 7-strings are sold here in iceland) and i played it, and it was amazing!
So i asked them of the name but they didn´t know because the guitar was used and they didn´t get any information.
So i kept playing, i think it´s an older Ibanez (pre Prestige series) it only stood Ibanez RG series on the head, it had two humbuckers and had a very similar finish as the RG1527.
It didn´t either have a Edge Pro (it only stood something Licensed Tremolo by Floyd Rose or something similar) so i think it´s a Lo-Pro tremolo.
It had pretty many scratches and the tone knob had fallen of (but easily repaired) and it costs 150000 isk (2244$) i think that it´s an awfully expensive guitar (especially because of all the scratches and tone knob problem)
But the overall look of the guitar is just like the RG1527 (only the dots on the fretboard is bigger) it had the AANJ neck-joint and had a 5 way toggle (tho it had 2 humbuckers so i think it has a coil tap but i dont know). Is it just an older model of the RG1527 or is it something else better or worse? because i really liked the sound and feel of the guitar.

Not a Universe, they're HSH.

Pre-prestige would make it an RG7620 or 7420. If the bridge says Ibanez on the wing, then it's the latter.

I think that i would look suspicious taking pictures there XD but i think it was made in Japan i loved the neck! it wasnt flat like almost every other RG guitar, it was thin but had a little curve to it :P

I'd have to assume that it's a RG7620, but I really can't give anything more of an insight without seeing some pics. Even if you can find a picture on SS.org or something then we'd be able to tell ye everything you need to know about it. I'm just trying to imagine a guitar for over $2000 made by Ibanez that's an RG and would be worth that much with scratches. hmm....

You have to think that i live in Iceland my RG2550E costs about 110000 isk (1645$) here when it only costs 880$ in USA, but still i agree the scratches aren´t horrible but still....

Is it worth two grand? You be the judge, I sold mine for $450 recently, and it was near-perfect.

Seeing how your prices are very inflated, I'll just say that they're definitely NOT worth even as much as a new 1527, despite the stock Dimarzio pickups.
