Grabbed up this puppy a few days ago. Its a RG7421 body with a '99 RG7621 neck. Its all stock, and i just ordered some schaller strap lock buttons and a Blaze for the bridge.

Then I picked up this little guy. M-Audio Oxygen 25 MIDI Controller. Its friggin awesome. I can really feel song ideas just churning out of this guy.


Oh, and :hsquid:

'99 RG7621 neck.
Dear Ibanez,

Please bring that neck profile back. The current one sucks donkey balls.

Regards,

Dave

PS: There is this thing called alder. It is awesome. Google it.

NO SHIT! :lol: I had never played a 7621 neck, but your right, the profile is awesome.

That's a solid guitar after those mods, man! More pics when she's all put together <3
Why thank you sir Ryan! Will do

...whereas I REALLY didn't like that profile. :lol: I was fine with it right up until I bought a 2027, when I realized how much more comfortable that profile was. Then I sold that (didn't get on with the tone) and bought a UV, and had the same experience. The CST reminded me of the 2027's profile, and the 1527 seems to be based on that neck as well, though maybe a hair less D-shaped. That was easily my favorite Ibanez neck profile, and the 7620 was my least. :lol:

Honestly, the two Ibby profiles I like the most are the original late 80s, early 90s sixers, and the UV. Nothing else they did comes close. Having said that, I find the late 90s sevens worlds better than the current ones. The new stuff is unplayable to me.

The original neon green JEM from the 80s is awesome. After that, I'm not much of a fan of the Ibanez neck.

I bought my stepdaughter a 91-92 S, the same model Gambale played, and that neck is fantastic. They should have never changed that. You know, like Jackson--every guitar I pick up in the store has the same profile as my '87 Soloist.

I fucking loved the profile on my RR5, that's what I modeled my 6er's neck after.

I agree, My ex360 was a mid level guitar at best when I bought it in '91 but I think it smokes just about anything in the market today.

I agree with Matt, the original JEMs had an amazing neck profile. I've never played another Ibanez like them. The 7621 neck profile is a little too thin for me; I prefer the 1527 profile but can't stand the profile on the cheapo Chinese/Indonesian/where-the-hell-ever Ibanez sevens. They feel clunky.
