Ibanez RG7421PB Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic RG performance
  • Fixed Bridge 7 for absolute tuning stability
  • Massive tonal range
Classic RG performance

The Ibanez RG Series of guitars has remained a standard in rock music for the last couple of decades, thanks to the effortless playability of Ibanez's Wizard II-7 neck. This slim and super-comfortable neck lets you pull off lighting-fast runs and arpeggios with ease, but still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords. Ask any of Sweetwater's in-house shredders - the Wizard neck is a player's dream come true. The Ibanez RG7421PB also gives you a ton of tone - and scorching hot looks to boot!

Fixed Bridge 7 for absolute tuning stability

The RG7421PB sports Ibanez's Fixed Bridge 7, which means no more tuning hassles due to a floating vibrato tailpiece. Your lowered tunings will be more stable and the string tension will feel looser. When you change tunings at the gig you'll be ready to rock without messing with the vibrato or loosening locking nuts.

Massive tonal range

With two high-output Quantum ceramic humbucker pickups plus 5-way switching, you'll be able to shape your tone any way you like on the RG7421PB. The low end on this guitar will surprise you. Although it will forever be known as a rock guitar, the RG7421PB's fast playability and tonal variety make it a great guitar for almost any style.

Ibanez RG7421PB Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Lightweight, resonant mahogany RG body
  • Eye-catching poplar burl top adds a touch of class
  • 3-piece maple Wizard II-7 neck is fast and smooth
  • Rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets and pearl dot inlays
  • Fixed Bridge 7 for absolute tuning stability
  • Quantum ceramic humbucker pickups deliver red hot output
Play the Ibanez RG7421PB and experience 7-string greatness!

I would STRONGLY recommend buying this guitar now!!!!

My first guitar 23 years ago was an Ibanez RG350DX in Lazer blue. I absolutely loved that guitar and was sad to sell it a number of years later. I was checking out Sweetwater, just thumbing through and found this guitar. Always wanting to explore 7 strings and get another Ibanez. I decided to go with the demo model. The color was more pronounced and they took 50 dollars off for a scratch that I can barely see....if the light hits it correctly. Alex handled my purchase and even took the guitar off the website before I even bought it!! The guitar was set up beautifully, 55 point inspection!!! It traveled from Indiana to Virginia, opened the box and it was even in tune. It is an extremely well built guitar, the neck is very Ibanez, the pickups are well balanced for several styles of music. Buy this guitar today.

Buy this guitar!

This is my second 7 string guitar I've owned and played for an extensively long time and it's comparatively 10x better than the 200 dollar budget J22 Jackson that I just recently sold to afford this. I will give you this pros and cons of this guitar, some opinionated based on my experience and the rest are facts.Pros:-With the Wizard Neck on this guitar this guitar is smooth to play on. Chords are easily accessible and I'm not uncomfortable with constant fret wear on my hands like most affordable guitars that I've played before.-The paint Job is outstanding! It's a little different than the picture on the web site (I got the Poplar Blue finish), but way better looking as there is a little bit of fade into a deeper blue on the outside of the top. They also did a good job on the mahogany, really deep stained and oiled finish to that and the top as well.-Was ready to play outside of the box with no adjustments to be made, except maybe to tune it just a tad, but besides that it sounded really good running through my 120W stack. It has a 5 way blade switch which allows me to get an arrange of tones from this guitar which all sound good and have their own uses from chugging, to a nice smooth clean tone, to nice distorted leads, and other tones I haven't really messed with yet. The mahogany paired with the Poplar top really gives it great natural sustain, which is perfect for those of us who like to hold our notes out for awhile! Cons-Don't have anything really to bad to say about this guitar. It's a 500 dollar 7 string guitar so there's not going to be much more to it. Meaning that it doesn't come with fancy hardwear like locking straps, locking nut, or high grade electronics (like pickups, tone knobs with a better frequency rates, etc), but all this stuff can be purchased for more or less than 350 dollars if you want a guitar with the supreme quality of an almost 1500 prestige model Ibanez. Which isn't a bad option if you want some customization.- No shark fin or piranah fin fret markers, just dots. I've never really been a fan of the dot markers (See I said this review was going to be a little opinionated, but does that mean you shouldn't grab this baby? HELL NO! GET IT NOW BEFORE IBANEZ STOPS PRODUCING THESE!)
