Overview

The Ibanez RG7321 7-string electric guitar's pickups and pickup placement provide the hard-edged cutting tone needed for heavy rock.

Since 1987, many players have selected the Ibanez RG as their weapon of choice for visiting sonic mayhem on the metal masses. With the right choice of pickups and flat, fast necks, the RG crunched its way to classic status.

As heavy as it rocks, the RG7321 is made of basswood, a comparatively lightweight wood, which makes it very comfortable for extended playing. With a good balance of highs and lows, basswood is right in between alder and mahogany in sound character. 24 jumbo frets offer easy playing for leads and chording and the Fixed 7 string thru bridge provides great tone and sustain. Total tonal choice is provided 5-way switching of two Ibanez Axis 7 humbuckers with coil-splitting capabilities.

If you've always wondered what you could do with a 7-string guitar, now is the time to find out.

Not having enough money at the current time to own one, I have been to guitar center neumerous times to play this perticular guitar. I have been pleased from day one with Ibanez's ability to buile a great 7-string guitar, especially the RG-7321, with hardtail bridge allows you to utilize the ability of having that seventh string to drop down to an A for that extra lowness. Other than a quick swap of the pickups to brighten the sound I'd say this guitar is almost the perfect 7-string, with its thin neck almost totally doing away with the fact that the neck is about 1/4" wider. If you want to go heavy at a great price it's this guitar. I personally like to use a Mesa single or dual rectifier combo amp to play through when I play this guitar, nothings beats a dual rectifier and a low tuned guitar.

I would say that some portions of the make are good quality and other portions are bad quality. Just like any Ibanez that is not a prestige, it is recommended that the pickups be changed, duh. What I didn't like is that the nut on the guitar was not filed properly which messed with the tuning after bending strings. Upon looking inside at the circuitry, I found that some of the soldering joints were poor and the set up was very messy. The wood crafting part of the guitar is marvelous. The neck has a good shape that makes it easy to play for a seven string. The action was a little high when I first got the guitar but the adjustment was easy due to the overly simplistic bridge system. Intonation was also easily adjustable. The playability is adequate where little effort is needed to press down on the string, the only downside is that the fret wire could be filed down at the edges a little. Overall, I would say this is a good start when getting used to a seven string guitar.

Tons of LOW End

By KhamHead

from Raleigh, NC

Man ive never had the opportuninty to play a guitar with some much low bottom end it's crazy. The fact that im still able to tune upwards to c and still get that pounding bass from the 7th strings it really cool and come in handy. The fixed bridge is nice (I really wanted a tremelo system on it but fixed is great. Overall this guitar is and the ibanez company have made great guitar and im honored to even play one.

Worth it

By Justin

from Front Royal, VA

This is without a doubt the slickest playing seven string I have ever laid my hands on. The action is phenomenal (with no buzz anywhere), and the flat-backed neck makes the added width easy to work with. I've played other 7-strings (most were way more than $379), but this one definitely takes the cake as far as overall playability. This guitar is also very light, which is good for long gigs. I'm playing it through a Crate Blue Voodoo 120 tube head and an Ampeg 4x12 bass cab to highlight the low end. Absolutely no complaints at all.

Love it

By Vincent

from Valparaiso, IN

Ordered without ever playing one, needed a 7-string quick. had to adjust string height a bit to fix some buzz, but other than that this thing screams. i put the tone on par with my razorback (but i am a bit biased toward Ibanez, so it could just be me) and after getting adjusted to the new neck size it's really easy to play. good purchase.

Best Guitar Ive ever had

By Kyle

from Delhi,CA

Ibanez rocks for making this awesome guitar. I played around with alot of guitars for months before deciding that this one was it, it was definetly worth the money. The Schecter Hellraiser was a little better, but it cost twice as much. I wouldnt say it is worth twice as much as this guitar. The sound is awesome, I love the pickups in it, and the seventh string makes six strings feel so incomplete

Wow... That's all I can say

By Justin

from Toledo, Ohio

This is the first Ibanez 7 string within my price range that I've found to sound great across a wide spectrum of music. Bought it immediately after playing it. It does the nu metal low-end thing really well, but what really impresses me is that it also does well clean and on the high-end. This is a versatile guitar that you won't want to put down. Play one and see what I'm talking about

I Went into guitar center on the 26, and wow this guitar caught my eye, I knew this was the guitar for me. it has an amazing neck great for shredding, sweeping, or getting that real low crunchy sound. weather your going for the KoRn sound or getting a guitar to shred on this will not serve you wrong. BUY IT!!

Awesome Guitar

By Matt

from Vail Arizona

This guitar has a really nice feel to it. Its light, and durable. The pickups are not the greatest, and there is a little string buzz although those are easy to fix. The price is amazing, and this guitar is worth every penny.

This Owns

By Grussagrinty

from Crackron, OH

Yeah, this guitar totally owns. The pickups are great (Ibanez should use AH pickups in all their guitars) and the neck is really thin and fast. Sweeps are really easy and the upper frets are easy to reach (Duh, it's an RG). You can play low and heavy and fast and high. I abuse it with metal songs in B tuning (particularly Tool, Spaceman Spiff, and Threat Signal), metal songs in drop A, and melodic things all around. Buy this guitar!

Best Affordable 7 string in the market!

By IbanezGtr28

from Middlebury, CT

The Ibanez RG7321 is the best 7 string for under $700 anywhere. It's satin black finish is a joy to look at and it really shines under the stage lights. The neck is very fast, playable and appealing to look it for it's bubinga wood stripes. The fixed bridge is a joy to work with and is such a convineice coming from a floyd rose style bridge. But most of all, the pickups on this bad boy really scream. They handle the low of the B string very effectivly and produce the searing highs known only to Dimarzio pickups. They also produce a fantastic clean sound with the 5 way selector. This guitar can be used for anything and everything. That is why for $380, this guitar is not only a steal, but a shear treat to look at and shred on. I have no complaint or regrets whatsoever.

Excellent

By Valaraukarsbane

from NY

This is an excellent guitar. I bought this after having a Squier Strat, and this guitar blows that one out of the water. It has an amazing sound and I love the feel of it. It is perfect for the low crunching heavy chords I like to play, but it seems versatile enough to handle fancy high solos nicely as well. I have heard some complaints however that it can be hard to get a nice clean sound; however, I always use distortion, and for that it is excellent. The only downside is the lack of a tremelo feature (get a whammy box!)

This is an amazing guitar for the price!

By Casey Holder

from Stillwater, Oklahoma

I was in guitar center, and I saw this guitar. i picked it up and started to play it through a marshall mg50. It is a very comfortable guitar. it has an extremely thin, smooth neck. The pickups are good too, but i would eventually buy EMG's though. Its actually more comfortable than the Schecter C7 Hellraiser. So if you are looking for a 7 string, then buy this one. you wont be dissapointed!

RG7321

By [Black] Rob

from Henderson, KY

The Ibanez RG7321! I've never played a 7-String before, and was curious as to how one sounded. It absolutely kills. The stock pickups sound awesome, the action is low, and the neck is flat and smooth. Definately one of the most awesome guitars I've ever played, and the price is incredibly low.

Completely satisfied.

By Kody.

from Cedarville.

Seek no further if you're looking for one of the most versatile 7string guitars on the market today. You'll be able to harness the metal tone you want, as well as any other type of music. Deep lows and rich highs make up the incomparable sound and playability you get right off the rack. A great buy for anyone really.

Great Seven String

By New Seven Stringer

from Golden Valley, AZ

This is probably one of the best seven string guitars you could get for this price. It's basic, yes, having only a hardtail bridge and no special finish or inlay work, but its beauty lies in its simplicity. It sounds rather good, with the stock Ibanez pickups. With my Crate 120 watt and my Digitech Metal Master, I can achieve a very heavy, Korn-esque sound. However, people who are used to having more costly instruments will probably want to swap them out, since they have a tendency to mud out the low B string when played with distortion tuned down. It's really lightweight, since it's made of basswood, so it won't kill your shoulder during a gig like perhaps a Gibson Les Paul. It holds tune, it sustains for ages, and it just plain sounds really good. It's perfect for any fan of deep tones. For this price, it really doesn't get much better than this.

Awesome!

A delightful guitar! A great choice if you want to start the seven string. Awesome tone, and its easy to adjust from a six. Buy this one first, if you want to gain a string.

Great guitar, needs work to play though.

By Bernie Mac

from Las Vegas, Nevada

I bought this guitar and at first I was kind of disappointed with it, though I knew it had potential. The catch is, if you buy this guitar, you're going to need new pickups, because the Ibanez stock pickups are garbage. They are far too buzzy and they just gotta go right off the bat. You should immediately invest in some new pickups, like some Dimarzios (I have a blaze in the neck and an X2N in the bridge and now it sounds great). That's the only downer. Otherwise, she plays like a dream. The neck is nice and flat and fast and comfortable and the guitar is light, but not too much; It has a substantial mass to it. If you're willing to work a little, buy this guitar.
