Hey everyone, I just made a trade to get my hands on a MIJ RG7421, one of the ones made with the 7621 necks. Traded on sevenstring.org and it went flawlessly. He packed it to survive a warzone.
It's in pretty amazing condition considering its a 15 year old guitar, only a few nicks in it. One of the previous owners refinished in a almost K7 blade grey color. They also added a # 13 that I'm not crazy about (a bit nu-metal for my taste) but don't really mind it too much. The quality of the instrument more then makes up for it.
The neck on this plays like a dream, especially for the price range, and its great for fast riffing. Couldn't stop play 80's/early 90's death metal on it. I'm also impressed at the quality of the neck woods and the lack of fretwear. I'm guessing it was refretting sometime in the last few years because they look almost new.
Edit: The previous owner informed me that the guitar was "never refretted the original owner. He bought it new and only played it for one song every gig his band played until about 2005, then in the closet it went." Explains why its like time capsule.
The pickups are going to be replaced (hopefully) with a set of Painkillers and I'm getting new saddles and knobs (o-ring) from hipshot. Down the line I'm thinking about swapping the pots out for CTS and maybe even hipshot tuners if I think it's worth it (the stock gotohs seem fine)
Anyway, enough rambling. Here's some photos.
