My RG2027XL is my favorite guitar now. It'd be nice to see some variation colors on these XL guitars. I like the blue... But also I like neon
Dark Tide Blue is pretty nice, I'm a real sucker for Cosmic Blue though.
I like thin necks, my hands aren't that big, so they suit me well... and I'm used to the S5527s, to the RG1527's, my 2000 UV's and a few others I have here...@odibrom See if you like the super wizard HP Prestige necks first if you haven't tried them. They're 25.5", 49mm 7 string nut, 17mm thick profile at 1st fret, 19mm profile at 12th fret, 17" radius, typically light satin finish on rear and headstock. It's the exact neck I imagine many folks gripe about being a bit too thin. For me the really close string spacing is more of the stark contrast to something like the S5527's Wizard 7 RG style neck when combined with the slight radius difference. It really makes you use fretboard real estate carefully when it comes to certain chords.
There's a Iron label SIX27FDBG 7 string on Reverb and a few other places right now. It's going to feel identical to an S5527 I would bet, and if you can do your own fret and nut work not much of a compromise at all functionally.
Great minds think alike...?That's what I said when I bought this guitar too, small world!!
