The neck is perfect, access to acute is no problem ... Super Sustain
For the large metal type Meshuggah, it's perfect. The sound is more modern than the cold and EMG. The grain is super tight. on the other hand, a little less lower than the EMG. In neck pickup, seymour black out the grain has a very special, a well-recognizable. The sound is really accurate, I play with a distortion Rocktron Silver Dragon (in Mesa 12AX7), Blackheart Little Giant amplifier in JJ / Telsa (ECC83 12AX7 and EL84) and the scratches I can see the difference with my old scratched. The grain of the distortion is much more compressed and dense. It is balanced, the transition sleeve easel is no shock. I put 9 because the clean sound is not really versatile (already a little more than EMG for me).
(I compare the pickups with emg esp a maple ebony mahogany Sanskrit, even in violin Croda 6)
In left to play metal, there are not too many choices. I already had on another emg guitar, there was too much midrange for my taste (it's completely subjective). The big problems with schecter is that the new distributor France's prices are excessive desire, and does not distribute this particular model (the same for the former distributor).
Apart from the scratches, I see no other left-handed 7-string pickups typed in as a metal with violin. It's really a case. The violin is equivalent to the Sanskrit ESP right-handed (except with a rope in more and 26.5 ") for half price (through eb **).
So the choice I would do without hesitation ...
Now I have interest in advance!
the handle is very pleasant, the violin is really superb, a guitar relatively slight (lighter than esp horizon)
I quickly nab the spot, beginning at 7 strings when one is not used it a little scary, but actually not too thick, the handle can immediately find his bearings
I was hesitant about using style hardcore metal .... and in fact once properly set the 7th string sends super heavy! the pickups are good quality sound is more versatile than one esp.
I was surprised by the clear sound that is really good, I'm around a lot of amp to see what it's worth and even if left as it is not very trimmed in a choice of guitar (especially 7-string) failed to meet a blush esp horizon (this is my business)
the sound is very clear and precise he can be sent in the full g *** it, we do not start in a fog of distortion notes.
guitar I own for a month, buy 960 euros in paris, I'm very happy with this purchase!
I hesitate with the horizon but I wanted more versatility compared to the style that I can come to play.
