Pics first: I was perusing the local used listings when I realized some people sell j.customs for dirt cheap here. I've been wanting to get a 7 for a long time now and this looked to be by far the cheapest option to get a top quality one. So a decade after joining this site I finally actually own a 7 string It's a 2013 RG8527Z in Black Onyx! Wizard 7 5-piece neck made of maple and wenge, a very dark rosewood fretboard. The j.custom tree of life inlay is incredibly vibrant in person. 17 inch radius. The fretboard is bound with flame maple which I think will look really nice once I clean it. Last owner must have had really dirty hands as the edges of the binding and frets are almost black and that area feels rough. Whatever j.custom fret treatment is it's amazing. Easily the smoothest fret edges I've dealt with so far. The frets aren't stainless but there doesn't look to be any wear at all on them, although they need a cleaning/polish pretty badly. The body is mahogany with a flame maple top. The flame is so damn wavy I love it. Naturally this is easily my heaviest guitar now, so I'll have to see how I deal with the weight later on. The pickups are still the stock Dimarzio PAF 7s. Remains to be seen if I'll replace them down the road. Bridge is the Edge-Zero 7 with ZPS3. I haven't played around with it much yet since the whole guitar needs a restring and setup pretty badly, but I think I'm going to ditch the ZPS3. It's stiff as hell which I suppose is adjustable but I prefer a sensitive trem with flutter. I'll have to learn how to set up this bridge too. Now to figure out how I want to clean this thing. It came with a Prestige multitool as well which is really cool. I actually needed the truss rod adjustment wrench thing for my Jackson too, so this is quite convenient. The case has a nice crack in it on the end that worried me (the guy literally taped together multiple Amazon boxes to form a bigger "box" and stuffed it with bubble wrap). I plan to put it in drop Ab. I have a set of 10-59 NYXLs but I might need a thicker 7th string. Anyway super stoked to put some hours into this thing.
