    Total noobie top seven strings here despite having waned one for two decades. Looking to stay under $500(preferably less).

    So, these are my options; the Sterling JP70(in trans-purple!)for $400, or an Ibanez RG7420(I think Japanese. Waiting for seller to respond with serial #)for $300.

    Which is my better buy, 7 stringers? Thanks in advance!

    7420 if it's in good shape and japanese, for sure. depending on the condition 300 is a solid deal

    Definitely japanese. F serial number 2002 March. Hard to say on condition, as I'm ordering online. Looks decent in the picks. I've played the Sterling and a 7620 before, liked them both.
