Product Description

Famous for its lightweight carved mahogany body, the Ibanez S7420 7 String Electric Guitar can take a beating while still providing the resonance of guitars twice its size. The S7420 also comes equipped with the ZR tremolo system, a smooth ball bearing tremolo that makes every subtle nuance of whammy bar use come alive. The Ibanez S series first appeared in 1987. Ever since, it has changed in appearance and function to represent the cutting edge of Ibanez design.

ZR Tremolo:
The 7-string version of the Zero Resistance tremolo features the same ball-bearing based system for precision and friction-free action. Zero Resistance technology, yet another Ibanez tremolo improvement, replaces standard knife-edge pivots with a ball-bearing based pivot joint, which provides greater tuning stability.

The ZR tremolo uses a ball-bearing based system for precision and friction-free smooth action. This unique system stabilizes the bridge and insures tuning stability by consistently returning the tremolo to the center point (or zero point). In addition to the usual tremolo springs, the Zero Point System features two additional springs which insures the bridge’s return to the center point.

The Zero Point system adjustment can be quickly set by hand–there’s no need for a hex wrench. Zero Resistance technology, yet another Ibanez tremolo improvement, replaces standard knife-edge pivots with a ball-bearing-based pivot joint, which provides greater stability. Finally, a locking tremolo that stays in tune when a string breaks! Just unscrew the built-in intonation adjustment tool from the base and screw it into the bottom of each saddle for quick adjustments.

The locking bolt is offset from the center of the saddle, which allows easy access to the bolt without loosening the strings.

Great quality 7-string for the money!
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I think this is an extremely gig-worthy instrument with an amazing (if difficult to understand) bridge system and high-quality hardware besides. One thing that stands out to me as a gigging musician is that I am constantly having to adjust the truss rod of my instruments and many times just tend to remove the cover altogether rather than have to spend a long time screwing and unscrewing the thing back on. This truss rod cover is ingenious because it rotates off of the rod cavity allowing easy access without extra work. GOOD THINKING!!! My only qualm is that some of the frets ends are a bit sharp...some rounding off would have been nice.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
My overall rating of 5 stars is primarily based on value. It's not the most amazing guitar I've ever played by a long shot, but considering how much the price was versus what I got in return, I could not be happier.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is kind of what you'd expect from a bolt-on guitar. It has plenty of bite and snap, and not so much low-end growl or resonance. Truthfully, it's exactly what I was looking for...something with a lot of note definition inherent in the building materials (even before pickups come into play) so that I can play really note-y stuff on it. As a result, it's a great guitar for playing leads.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Flawless gloss black finish.
