OK for the price

Does the job as an entry level 7 string. Requires some serious tuning though.

Out of the box experience: As expected for a an instrument that came straight of Indonesia and was probably exposed to many temperature and humidity variations.
Wood was extremely dry, neck had a big bow, and the nut was sitting far too high above the frets to allow for smooth action or proper intonation tuning. After lowering the nut by a good millimeter, changing the stock strings, tightening the truss rod, intonation and pickups adjustment, + a fair amount of polish, guitar came to life.

The good: neck is relatively pleasant, tuning is surprisingly stable.

The bad: the nut ruins it all. Having to take it out to sand it off from the bottom was not expected. Even the string slots are not cut cleanly. This will probably get upgraded to a Black Tusq.

Pickups: midrangey and a bit noisy but nevertheless warm and sweet sounding. not the clearest in the lows but ok for blues tones. Sound far warmer than entry level EMGs. For serious metal or recording, an upgrade should still be considered.

Fretwork: not as good as an Iron Label / Prestige that cost twice as much, but roughly ok. Some scratches on the upper side of the fretboard that look ugly but don't harm playability.

Update after 6 months: 3 frets went loose around 6th-8th position and required replacing by a proper luthier. As of today it plays ok with a proper nut and some fretwork, but overall, this guitar was too much trouble for what it is worth. The walnut natural finish is wearing out in an ugly way also.

Good entry into the world of the 7-string

In my search for the first 7-string guitar, my choice fell quickly to Ibanez.

If you move around 400¤ in the favorable price segment, it is difficult to find good alternatives. Important for me was above all a solid bridge and 2 humbucker. The RG7421 delivers this. Also the circuit of the pickup through the 5-way switch is well solved, especially the split humbuckers in position 2 are very well suited for clean sounds.

As for the finish is certainly the taste, the whole feels very "raw". I will probably at least the neck a light oil finish, because I like the feeling of the game. The neck is for me then the only shortcoming, since it is very flat and one hardly feels a radius. The many may not disturb or prefer so many people very flat necks. I would have liked something more, but I can arrange with it, as the rest convinced me.

The pickups also provide a very good basic sound, here you can of course if desired with Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio etc. retrofit.
