For a low priced 7-string, you really won't find a guitar with a better sound. I've been playing for 7 years now, and I play a wide variety of music, as well as play many, many shows through the year, and I love the sound of the RG7321. It's very crunchy when distorted, and very clean. When it comes to blues/acoustic style music, I LOVE the sound. For stock pickups and a low priced axe, anyone looking for a 7-string on a budget, should certainly get this.
When this guitar was shipped to me, it arrived almost perfectly set up. The intonation on all the strings as spot on, the pickups and hardware were sturdy, and I was able to plug it in and play without doing anything. The only thing that could be better, as with all guitars in this price range, are the pickups and the tuners, since I'm and EMG kind of guy. Aside from my personal preferences though, the neck, and hardware on this are great.
Ease of Use:
As with all 7-strings, you usually have to tweak your EQ for all of your channels if you're usually a 6-stringer, but it didn't take long to do. As with all guitars... you just have to plug it in, and make sure the volume is up. Not too hard.
Fresh out of the box, the guitar looks stunning. The finish was excellent, and all of the hardware looked as if it were polished. As for reliability, It's my main stage 7-string, and it's even been dropped a few times, and there's still not a scratch. I'm very pleased with it. It's not the PERFECT guitar, since I'd still love to have a Schecter Damien Elite-8 string, but I'm on a budget, and it's a great guitar. Also, I've owned a Gibson Explorer, Epiphone Explorer, Dean Vendetta 7 string, Washburn WG587 7-string, BC Rich Warlock Deluxe Diamond Series, Dean VX, Washburn X-series 7-string, Ibanez S-series, ESP LTD EX50, ESP LTD M100, Epiphone Zakk Wylde Custom, and a few others I can't remember at the moment. But this one is great. So good in fact, that I've bought it. Twice.
Never had to deal with support. Probably because the guitar is so solid. So I'm gonna give it a 10.
Hands down, one of the best 7-strings you'll find in the price range. Ibanez, and ESP are two of the brands that I KNOW make excellent guitars in the $300-$500 range.
