The Ibanez RG7 CST was a very limited run of top quality 7-string guitars. There were only 18 of these made in 1999. Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit played one.

7CST was produced in 2 series under names RG7-PB1VV and RG7-PB2VV. RG7-PB1VV was a pilot proto run and RG7-PB2VV was made in May 1999. The only difference is the fretwire used in these guitars. The fretwires on PB1 were SBB216-195 and PB2 had SBB215-175.

The name RG7 CST derives from the US market, where there were only 2 sold. In Japan the guitar is known as RG7-PB1VV or RG7-PB2VV. Guitar collectors and players usually know this model by the name RG7 CST.

Features[edit]

The RG7 CST features include:

  • Mahogany Body
  • Flame Maple top
  • 25.5" 3pc Maple neck with Ebony fretboard
  • No Inlays
  • Wizard 7 profile
  • DiMarzio Custom7 pickups (h-h setup)
  • L.R. Baggs Piezo pickups with a preamp

The guitar had a retail price of $2999.99[1] and there were only 2 sold in USA. The rest of the guitars were only sold in Japan.

Availability[edit]

As there were only 18 made, this guitar is very rare. Every now and then you might see one sold in Ebay, and the prices are sometimes over $3,000 for good condition ones.

This model will not be continued by Ibanez.
