Sound — 9
It's suits mostly metal music but can also be used for hard rock music. I use my RG7321 with a Vox amp (also good with Marshall but a Vox is a killer if you ask me), effects depends on the user I use a Boss Metal. It also gives a rich heavy sound and a very good clean sound too. This guitar sounds great for shredding, harmonics, and of course... heavy riffs.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall Impression, a great guitar to play for those looking for a change in music, style, and even instrument. The price is really affordable. I have been playing it for a month now and it just sound massive. If this were to get stolen. I would probably get a new one or get another type of 7 stringed guitar (for example the new Ibanez Apex 1 oe 2 which costs huge sums of money though). I love everything about it but I'm not quite sure about it's durability though, well I guess I have to found out myself.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I haven't played it Live yet but I have played it with my friends in some little jams. It's has a massive sound so it can cheer a moshpit. The hardware looks like it will last because of it's good finish. I suggest you change the strings though once a year sometimes the 7th string becomes floppy (if your using a hard pick)
Action, Fit & Finish — 7
This guitar was set-up pretty fair. You can adjust the pickups if you want to have a better Live sound though and there's absolutely no flaws what'soever. The strings are originally tuned to BEADGbe but when I bought mine it's already in a low A tuning (probably one of the staff tuned it) it's strings can be tuned to A or B
Features — 9
It's neck type is 5pc Wizard II-7 Maple/Walnut, Basswood body, Jumbo Frets, 7 String Fixed Bridge, It's neck and bridge pickups are AH7's (humbuckers), with passive electronics, Black finish, RG body. Simple but an effective weapon of metal music. it's features are really amazing but the pickups are quite good If you ask me.
