Hi, guys I'm in the market for a new MIJ Ibby 7 workhorse and I'm trying not to go over $1,300. Overseas shipping is out of the question because it's difficult to do here in my country, so I'm limited to these tasty choices in my area: RG752fx (Subterranean Purple) Pros: -Only about $700 -Simple, solid, no-frills workhorse -Almost brand new and bone-stock -Fixed bridge -great mod platform Cons: -(shallow con) This is by far the 752 I like the least because of its color. Call me shallow, but I'm just not digging the rosewood board and dull metallic purple look. -Not good resale value here -Will definitely need a pickup swap -If I want to try it out it's about a 2 hour drive which is tricky to schedule right now UV7BK (Green dot) Pros: -One of my dream guitars -Only about $1050 -No serious issues despite its age -That legendary UV neck profile -The allure of an OG, 29-year-old instrument -Neck is in good condition -Good resale value here -One of the rarer models with an original Edge 7 -These things are getting rarer Cons: -Not a trem guy, but sort of willing to suck it up for potential UV hype -Will need some cleaning, rewiring, replacing old rusty screws -It's about a 5 hour trip if I want to buy or try out the guitar S5527QFX (Purple doom burst) Pros: -Relatively near my area -Almost brand new, unused condition -Fixed bridge -Mahogany with a maple top, which is my favorite combination -Looks pretty darn slick -Also seems like a solid workhorse Cons: -About $1,250 making it the most expensive of the bunch -Will definitely need new pickups -the S7 neck supposedly feels a bit different from RG7 necks? Anyone have experience here? -Not good resale value here -rush sale so the seller may need me to decide quickly K7 (Firespeak blue) Pros: -Another dream guitar -Only about $1,100 -Also an old school Ibanez goodie with a cult following -Mahogany body -Looks classy AF -Good condition Cons: -Once again, has a trem but willing to suck it up to try a real K7 -Have to wait till July for the owner to arrive back in my country -Owner isn't sure if it's an earlier model or the later version with a different, less popular neck profile -...that inlay. I'll attempt to at least try the S5527 soon but the others are totally different stories. Will need to plan ahead and block work days off if I even want try them out. What do you guys think?
