I'm not that big fan of JP or Dream theater, but I badly love the graphics of the Ibanez JPM.
There is 7string version of JPM (called P7) specially made for only JP not produced publically.
I was to DIY the P7, but it's really hard job and costs much then I thought.
So I'm gonna buy the P7 selling on ebay or a website and wanna have your opinion.
They are selling P7 at very reasonable price.
But I'm not sure about that site and the quality of the job.
The graphic is fine but I have no idea with wilkinson pickups and bridge. is it fine?
here is the link
There is a seller on ebay selling P7 based on RG7620.
I think it's perfect and it seems that the seller is expert about P7.
Graphic is more like real P7 then above site in many ways - small gap on body binding spot, position of knobs, type of knobs and headstock logo.
Also I love the Dimarzio D sonic and Air norton.
But I don't know much about Ibanez guitars.
Does the RG7620 made in Japan? And the bridge is the same with JP's?
And the price will be somewhat expensive than above site.

I'm just wondering about your idea.
Fuck the rareelectricguitar one. Get the 7620. They're Japanese made, and they have the right (and in my opinion, the best ever) trem, yeah. You can't go wrong with a 7620.
