Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (49 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "between heaven and hell!!"
Sound: This one does it! I totally got sick and tired of having all these guitars in altered tunings so I said ****-it, and bought this rg 1527. first off it is a beautiful shade of deep-dark metallic blue. Great finish on all parts and the low B string gets all the "heavy" you could ask for. Feature: Just enough of the good stuff without going over board with abalone binding and signature endorsements, one volume, one tone, low pro trem, best of the best tuners, and it is a prestige model with case. I haven't really come to any conclusions about the pick-ups yet, there good, they work. This is the first time i had to turn down the bass on the amp even at low volume. Ease of Use: It takes some getting used to the wider neck and having that extra low string, but I've never played a 7-string before. I bought this for something different and challenging. I play RGT's exclusively and this guitar feels right at home with them. Quality: QUALITY!! Ibanez prestige, what more is there to say? Flawless paint, super smooth neck. The tone rings out from this guitar even before you plug it in. This is the first guitar i bought that exceded my expectations. Value: yea, a 10 for value too. was going to get the RG 7321, but wanted something that would retain some kind of value in case i didn't like it. I also was looking at the K-7 and universe but those were just too expensive. RG 1527 is right in between those. Glad i got this one. Manufacturer Support: gave this one a 10 because the best factory support is the type you don't have to use. The Wow Factor: Didn't NEED it, but had to wait to pick it up for an extra month and it was all i could think about. Royal blue is a very deep color and it is very pleasing to the eyes, black chrome or "cosmo" chrome is also a nice touch. MOP inlay logo says something special and sets it apart from run of the mill Ibi's Overall: I go back to my 6 stringers when i want to rock, but when i want to explore or challenge myself with something new, this is the one i grab.

"if you want a 7 string here it is"
Sound: This instrument is versital as well as powerful you can use it for just about anything. Feature: the guitar comes with the (edge pro 7) knock off of the floyd rose its a very good trem and once you get use to it, it is a very big part of your everyday use. My personal opionion though is to buy a zr7. the only small complaint is that the cut out for the 24th fret is a hair short so if you have longer fingers your in luck. but dont let that discourage you its only a pinch off Ease of Use: the sound pretty much sounds amazing right when you plug it in, the ibz pickups are not match for emg 707's but they hit perfection when putting these pickups with this wood. its rather easy to modify this guitar. its really easy to use the guitar, has a very fast neck amazing body. The manual is very useful the only learning curve is the seventh string but you should get use to that if you just practice. overall very very playable instrument Quality: the product is amazing there are no other words to explain this guitar. the color is the only complaint but it isnt bright like the pictures. its more toned and could be mistaken for black. its a very sturdy guitar very very reliable. it sounds just as good in the studio as it does on stage. this guitar should last a good 10 to 15 years. Value: this is worth every penny Manufacturer Support: I have never had to call in for support on my equipment thank god. Ibanez is the best. The Wow Factor: its amazing and i love it Overall: i will be satisfied with this instrument for a very very long time. i will only replace it if i want a new guitar or if something just so happens to randomly occur.i only dislike the color but if you think about it your not buying the color your buying quality and sound.
