Made in South Korea, United controlled the state. Here we have a 7 string guitar with two EMG pickups (81/85), a bridge tune-o-matic or Pink Floyd to choose from, a handle end "C", 24 frets, a three-position switch, one volume, tone. Mahogany body with flamed maple table, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, abalone Gothic Cross Inlay (which are gorgeous!)
The handle is fine, although a little wide, but it is obliged with a 7 string ... ^ ^ Access to treble is good, although the general "block" or the handle is screwed that is big enough.
The shape is classic (Type Start / Horizon), its finish is superb! Gothic Cross, Body flamed red ... It is sublime while remaining sober enough! Biding'm black too. It is quite heavy (mahogany requires), and is very well balanced.
The sound comes out as nothing, thank you EMG, it turns the volume and we are ready to melt the amp!
Knowing that I play metal (who else would need 7 strings ...), the sound suits me perfectly! Its very powerful for EMG, and a lot of grace to sustain mahogany! The clean sound is good for metal, but it is not in this category that plays guitar.
I play on a Line6 SpiderValve 112 all-tube, and channel metal or insane, it's all good! Big sound ready to do just any kind of metal! I play mainly Trivim of Lacuna Coil and spruce with this guitar, and is ideally suited to this kind of style!
I have this guitar since March 2011, purchased for 549 € at Thomann. And there is no denying there's something for his money! Knowing it's worth 800 in store in France (where it is found in stores ...)
I tried a few Ibanez and LTD 7 string before the one, but none had the same level of quality or the same stuff on it! Just the EMG worth the purchase, on LTD at the same price is the passive pickups ESP LH ... (See LTD SC207)
Basically, look demented, exemplary finish, big sound, good playability all this at a ridiculous price that puts at risk dozens of guitars worth twice as much for quality if not worse!
With experience, I reselect a Schecter in the future, their value for money are demented! I tried the Hellraiser 7 Strings of a friend is a bit more expensive, and it is the same level of quality: EMG 707, Channel glued and painted, mechanical self-locking ... Basically one just above mine! And the sound of my closest lot elsewhere, and at the game too!
In any case, Schecter is good if you get a chance, go for it!
Manufacturing in South Korea, it has a fixed bridge (can be pink floyd), 24frets, 2 EMG active micro 81/85, volume and tone, a microphone selector 3 positions, finishing red / black.
Channel pleasant enough but not exceptional either. The shape (especially the appearance 7cordes/finiton black / red) announces direct color: brutal but class
I find it somewhat heavy, better predict a good wide strap for not weary shoulders.
Access to acute is not difficult, but should not have fingers 2cm long if not we reach the 7th fret of the 24th annual rope easily.
To get a good sound not need 3 hours because the settings are simple: one volume and tone, the sound is set on his head amp rather than the guitar. I said he should not be a great vintage Fender combo of death for fatal sound because the sound is rough and no top at all. Better predict the Laboga, ENGL, Peavey, Mesa or any mark used in part to heavy metal.
It has suited my style of music because I'm in a Thrash / Death with shred, triplets, and all the fuss.
I play on a Peavey Triple XXX and is the total growing, when the sound is well dug in the medium and very high in bass / treble, it would scare a mesa boogie triple what nimporte rectify the death 3000balles (I criticize not eh ...).
As I say, the sound is designed for metal (thrash brutal big-hairy lalilolz EMG). The sound bold is what I found: "Obituary, Zull FX, Dagoba," and so on, everything is reachable (it will say?) With this guitar and a good head / cabinet.
In micro acute (my favorite position ... ahem) we can have good low / nimporte acute and what its metal.
In micro bass, treble is quite hard to get otherwise it must be shielded in acute effect / adjustment of the head. This position is ideal for big metal beard (Suffokate, Zyklon, and another group that likes notes vacuum hinhinhin).
Intermediate position, I find this setting not very helpful and never use it personally but anyway I marmoset settings so my opinion does not count hehe).
I use it since September 2010.
The (-): I play by pulling big enough (I'm aiming for the 13-70 soon) and the nut serious side gets a little close the file * will * look a little heavy (already said), if that's all .
The (+): Shape / Color / Sound is deadly and it's (almost) everything I ask.
I tried a Schecter Diamond Series has in store 300balles: poop stick. I do not remember the model but have been good considering the price has roughly ct on ... My schecter and my Triple XXX PV have nothing to envy to the star who plays the metal gear has 20,000 balls (y)
Value for money more qu'excelent (I buy mine at states, costing 500euro cons barely more than 800 stores in french ...). This saying is you have the trouble on the U.S. site ruez he could book in France, c'bête bah yeah ...
I do not do it again this choice because I already have one (AHAHAHA. ..) but otherwise I highly recommend it and I will look + to the high end like Hellraiser Schecter Devil Spine or that make me feel like a monster. I also intend to take me a 8cordes (what I love Meshuggah is not my fault =, () If the Devil was released in Spine 8 strings I shall take the DAMNED!
I REREcommande brief, very good guitar, but to buy in store for 800balles I dunno ...
