    If they would do the RG752 as an RG752XL (27") I would throw my money at them.
    I have a 752fx that I love, but I need a longer scale for my second axe as I want to tune it lower, and I have a 72 on as is and that sounds too much like a bass string for my liking as is...don't care on the colour, otherwise I'll have to bit the bullet and get a horizon NT7B

    I REALLY want that S 7 string, but I just bought a house and would be slaughtered by the lady if I pulled that stunt. She already thinks I "have too many." :lol:

    Drawing a comparison with her pairs of shoes should net you some breathing room.
    For those hesitating to buy them, my IR7 is a decent guitar for the price. I swapped the 707 for a 81-7 X and it sounds VERY good. Still have some fretwork to do on it to make the neck really comfortable, factory fretwork was just okay, which is fine at that price point, really. If you already have a workhorse 7 these are probably not for you.

    Is the neck on these a bit rounder like the wizard 3, or mega thin like the wizard? Idk what nitro wizard means, but hope it doesn't mean "giant shoulders".

    Got to say if there is a white 752 to go along with that I may be in trouble... unfortunately the necks on 652 are too thin for me :(

    For my wallet's sake, it's good this guitar doesn't have one more string. :lol: The Dark Space Burst one is cool and all, but this one in a 7 would have me throwing money at it in no time!

    I've sat out from the 752AHM because I can't see myself playing that blue burst thing. But that blonde/Mary Kay finish... I still don't like bound necks on Ibanez RGs, though. Drives me nuts. Just is wrong to me.

    whyyyyyyy the coil split mini toggle in that position?? :wallbash:


    why would you want a quick eassy access to the switch that you would use the less (or at all), but then the pickup switch is all the way out in the back?? :scratch::scratch:

    I love Ibanez is trying new things, but duuuuude WTF do any of the engineers in there play guitar? :nuts:


    having say that ^^, I LOVE the new look of it, yes, its a bit Mayones, but its awesome, it looks so classy, and love what they did with the binding this time with multiply and on the fretboard isntead of in the edge. And finally they added a black back to a dark color scheme, instead of "brown" :agreed:

    having say that^^ why this beautiful color only on a 6 string :realmad:

    Don't have a picture on hand, but it looks like they're introducting an Iron Label FR 6-string.

    Also, you think that switch placement is bad... Have you seen the prestige RGD? :lol:

    Still better than an Explorer or Destroyer. As for that S, I'd rather have them swap the coil tap and pickup selector around.

    When is Ibanez gonna make a 7-string RG with a pickguard and sharktooth inlays? They'll need to do that to get me hooked.
