Schecter Guitars?
Well im in the market for a new 7 string guitar, and came across this...
Ive never heard of Schecter guitars before and was wondering if any of you guys have had an experience with them, or perhaps this exact guitar?

there's a guy who lives near me who works (sort of) for them. He helped design them and from what I've heard (listening to him play) they sound 100000000000 times better than any of the Ibanez 7 strings. Great sound and extremely good quality, easily the best value for money.

Schecter is a great company and their guitars are great espcially for their

GoredFaces 2003-04-28 12:03

I have a Schecter C-1 EX and I love it. It sounds great and has a nice feel to it. I went with the deep six as opposed to a 7 because they just kill my left arm trying to wrap my hand around the fretboard.

not that u give a shit, but i used to have a 7sting schecter. it kicked ass!!!! but im not into the whole tremolo locking-system thingy. steven or wutever his name is of deftones uses them. jerry horton uses a 6-stringer of theirs(yeah, i hate him too). but wut im sayin is, schecter is a big-brand-name. and theyre definately as good as any ibanez(prolly better). get that elite! i had some diamond series thing, but this looks like an even better one. i know u prolly already bought it, yet i like support when i buy things. so heres support to years of a kick-ass guitar :beer:

yeah it just came in the mail the other day and i love it, now i just need an amp that can keep up with it :eek:

he uses a brian moore 7 string as his main, an ibanez 7 string, and a schecter 7 string for backups and a little studio work... well thats from when i saw them a few weeks ago plus the dvd that came with their new cd. his brian moore is one pimped out git fiddle...

All i can say is they are real good quality guitars

Transient 2004-04-20 18:05

ive played the diamond series and i was blown away. very nice feel and good pickups for the price, about 600 new. which means you could probably get one on ebay for 400 or so

very high quality for price

Corpsevomit98 2004-04-20 18:42

I love the diamond series. They are a little heavy though but i can deal with it

DeathCS 2004-04-20 20:27

I like them, they got a really fast neck.

metalprep6969 2004-04-20 21:31

haha schecters aren't heavy at all, try playing a gibson les paul


johnmansley 2004-04-21 06:20

I've got a Diamond Series 7-string and it is a good quality guitar but I have two gripes with it:

1. It does seem overly heavy
2. I find it has poor sustain when playing distorted power chords.

However it's great to play riffs and the fretboard feels really good to play on. Pity mine broke a couple of months back!

PathofObscurity 2004-04-28 17:29

I got the Schecter V-7 I bought it after seeing the Metal Massacre tour 2000 when I seen jack owen playing. I think it has a great feel to it and the sound is amazing I got it blaring through a Crate Amp which is one of the better for distortion I think.

Kokaiinum 2004-04-30 12:05

what about the Omen 7 string is it any good? and is it heavy in weight?

They don't really seem heavy to me, any B.C. Rich is heavy (they can ruin straps pretty quickly). I played a custom flying v Schecter and I almost crapped my pants. I enjoyed others Schecters, but this one was damn awesome. It had a good fast neck, great for metal.

BOSE 2004-05-07 16:39

They are pretty good , but not the best sustain. My early 90's Ibanez owns all though, early 90's Ibanez's are the shit, i just love the way they play
