Great Guitar! It has a super fast neck and the cutaway is a great option for players that love to shred. With this guitar, not only do you get the money you payed out of it, but extra. The pickups are great, they do their job and get it done right. The only thing that could have been better with this guitar is a Edge III tremolo bridge, like the RGA72TQM, but that's just my playing style. Pros -> Fast neck for shredding and leads. -> Good pickups that get the job done, though they could be better. -> Beautiful black and shiny finish. The shine shows the arched top and thus reveals its "natural curves". -> Cheap way to get a great guitar -> Twenty Four Frets!!! -> Awesome body shape -> Light weight Cons -> Hard to restring -> Could have better pickups Overall, the guitar is great for the price, and for a guitar in general. I would defiantly recommend it and gig with it. Also, I have bumped it a lot, and it still holds the same beauty as it had when I first bought it. Their could be improvements, but it can hold its own against the best of them.

Well, it looks sexy, but it's only what I liked about it. Those guys who like this guitar and say that this is a great metal guitar have never played on Schecter or ESP for sure. Humbuckers? They say humbuckers are active, but come on, the sound is just poor. No better than my cheapest squier. Moreover, this bridge is just ridiculous. I don't understand why they keep producing these bridges. If they change this bridge, I may buy some Ibanez again with EMGs or other normal humbackers. Oh, I almost forgot to say about Buzzzz sounds. Yeah, it was bad. I kept this guitar for one year and then just traded in LTD H-1007 and I sighed. So, you guys who liked this guitar try Schecter and ESP and you will do the same what I did.

On the fence

By 

from Benton Harbor, mi

Comments about Ibanez RGA7 7-String Electric Guitar:

I am in love with the archt. and the neck is amazing and it is very light considering. That is all the good I can say about it, The pickups are horrible and evidently the switch (mid-scoop) is in case to want to add more mud to mud. The worse thing about this guitar is the dang brick of a bridge that they put on this thing, it feels awkward and very much in the way. If you play metal and do alot of palm muting along with fast galloping picking this thing definitely wasn't build with that in mind. It isn't ergonomic at all. I replaced the pickups with EMG707TW which corrected the sound of this guitar and now it has amazing tone but I haven't found a fix for the bridge. I wish ibanez offered an alternative for this.

Ibanez Rga 7

By 

from minneapolis minnesota

Comments about Ibanez RGA7 7-String Electric Guitar:

I like this guitar a lot, normally ibanez necks are too small and flat for me but this one feels a lot better. I like the stock pickups but if you're looking for a screaming amount of clear distortion tone that's used in tech-death type music i'd switch the pickups out for some EMG's or something similar. The mid-scoop switch doesn't really do much, it's a subtle difference in sound that i could've taken or left but it doesn't diminish anything for me personally. This is a light instrument, around 5 or 6 lbs. considering how thick and tough the finish is on the mahogany body that's remarkable.

It's.... disappointing

By 

from Fairview, North Carolina

Comments about Ibanez RGA7 7-String Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar about 3 months ago and I'm getting ready to sell it for an Epiphone Les Paul. The guitar is actually very well made. It plays very well and seems to stay in tune well. The major downside is the pickups. They are so muddy that I can barely understand what I'm playing ( for real). I don't have that much experience in the seven string realm, and with this offering I'm not that impressed. Please, if you're going to by a seven string I would highly suggest a Schecter Damien Elite 7. Better pickups and overall a better guitar.

Amazing Guitar.

By 

from Denver, Colorado

Comments about Ibanez RGA7 7-String Electric Guitar:

This guitar is simply amazing. Anything from the very light weight of it to the playability to the quality of the pickups racks up major points in my opinion. I use this up on stage and it has been nothing but a dream in my hands. I recommend this to everyone who wants comfortability and a unique sounding range of notes.

Outstanding.

By 

from Orange County, California

Comments about Ibanez RGA7 7-String Electric Guitar:

Usually I'm a bit skeptical about Ibanez, but let me tell you, once I played a riff on this, there was no going back. If your into some heavy metal this is the guitar for you. I bought this a few weeks ago and there is nothing bad I can say about it. I even got a nice clean tone going. The pickups are amazing, the shape is comfortable and the guitar itself feels sturdy, this is a must have.

Thought about it

By 

from Baycliff, tx

Comments about Ibanez RGA7 7-String Electric Guitar:

I considered this guitar when I decided to buy an electric. Played it in the store several times. One of the things that kept me from choosing this one was the color choices. The weight and feel were all good though and I was looking for a guitar that did not feel too big or heavy. I like Ibanez for this reason. The sound was good. I just did not like the color or shape.

Why have 5 or 6 strings when you can have 7?

By 

from Tampa, FL

Comments about Ibanez RGA7 7-String Electric Guitar:

The RGA archtop guitar not only has hot curves but playability. For live performance, its lightweight body gives players more freedom to prowl around stage. The arched top also lets players to knock down heavy riffs and power chords without hitting the guitar body. All told, curved beauty and great performance combine gracefully and powerfully in the RGA.
