Has anyone had a chance with either of these new axes yet? I'm considering one, but can't find anyone with stock to check em out.

I just got done recording all my guide tracks with my RG7321. Great axe, but looking for something proper to record the real tracks with.

Don't take this the wrong way, but that probably has rather a lot to do with your use of EMGs. ;)
I don't even own any guitars with EMGs bro :lol:
My Blue RG1527 is fitted with a Blaze Bridge and neck and my cherry fudge 7421 has Blackouts:metal:
The amount of gain I use these days is modern day Petrucci levels.
Ironic thing is I don't even like any of the new Dream Theater records at all, I only really like Images and Words and Awake and parts of SFAM :lol:
But I just like that extra compression on palm mutes.
Sometimes I will back off the gain a bit more when I'm fucking around with some Satch tunes though
Shit, it was such a nice theory. :lol:

I :wub: the Blaze bridge - that thing just sings on, well, what you would probably consider "lower" gain settings, and has this great chunkiness when dialed in right.
