Comments about Ibanez S7420 S Series 7 String Electric Guitar:

I bought this a few years ago when it had 22 frets and was called the S7320. (I didn't know as much about gear back then as I do now.) I thought it was great when I got it, but now I think for its price, it should have an OFR and Duncans or DiMarzios instead of the trash that's in it.
The neck is squarish and clumsy, with too much finish, not like the necks on Jacksons, which I love for their smooth feel and easy playability. The bridge stays in tune, but it doesn't flutter like a Floyd; it thuds back into position. Its parts aren't solid at all- the socket that holds the trem arm broke on me in days, and nothing else in it is doing too well either. The liscensed Floyd on my heavily abused Jackson took 9 years of wear and tear. It has not a speck of rust on it, still does its job well, and still stays perfectly in tune. Meanwhile the chrome on the ZR (the stock bridge on the S7420) started falling off after a year or so, and the bridge is rusting away. The pickups are ridiculously hot and very muddy- not much treble and way too much lows and low-mids. This makes it impossible to get a good distorted tone, no matter how intricately I EQ it, and no matter how little gain I use. The cleans are dull, with not much clarity or sparkle. However, the body is comfortable, and it, along with the neck, are quite solid.
All that being said, I'd say to save up for something better.
