I've had my Diamond Series 7 for almost a year now, and i'll never buy another brand of guitar again. This is, without a doubt, the nicest guitar i've ever owned (i also have ESPs, Ibanez, and a Les Paul). Nice narrow bridge (for a 7), great sustain, plenty of power (i did swap the Duncans for EMGs), and a perfect neck scale. And for the price, you can't ask for a better deal. If you need those heavy lows and wanna really rip it out, definitely buy this guitar!!!/m/ Stay Heavy
This guitar plays like a dream. The neck feels perfectly natural and the scale is perfect. Great tone and sustain. I also looked at the C7 Blackjack, and although the C7 has better pickups, the 25.5" scale feels much better. The action is perfect, and there is very little fret buzz. I own a Strat, and have played on Les Pauls and SGs, and this is by far my favorite.
When you read the reviews that say it makes the transition from a 6 string to a 7 string easy, that isn't an exaggeration. Not only is this the best 7 string I've ever heard, it's one of the best guitars I've ever heard. My friend owns a PRS custom 24 and he and I both agree that my guitar's clean tone is better then his. He won't admit it but my distorted tone is much better then his too. I thought i would have had to replace the Duncan Designs with real Duncans but I was way wrong.This thing delivers so much crunch and such sweet and warm clean tones that the replacement was unnecessary. Moving to looks, this thing is gorgeous! It looks 2x better in person.It also has a small body and has a realtively narrow neck for a 7 string which helps in making that easy transition.This guitar sounds great in drop tunings as well as standard.I would suggest this guitar to anyone looking for a 7 string, amateur or professional. The tone is unbeatable and the feel and price are perfect!
I played this thing a while back and it was the first 7 string I have ever played. It is the only 7 string that I will ever play. When I thrash on this thing it is so versitile and it can take a beating. You can get so much crunch out of this thing.Word of advice, where a cup because when this thing starts kickin, it goes all out and kicks balls. Your just plain stoopid if you dont get it.
compared to Ibanez, schecter are definitely up there with the best.
I've been having my See-thru black 007 for about 6 months now and I love it. The finish is outstanding! It's my first 7 so it took a little while to get used to low B, but it really inspires you to play differently and come with with new stuff.Now the complaints. Yes there are a few. It's a little harsh higher up the neck. My Les Paul has that warm tone all the way up. Sustain is a little weak but its not terrible, I've heard worse. Considering changing out the Duncan Designed for real Duncans. That might tame the harshness but it's no gaurentee.For this price, it can't be beat.
I got this ax for my birthday with two humbuckers and a pull up tone knob, which changes the sound from a humbucker into a single coil. From the moment I played this guitar, I knew how versatile it was. I use it for metal, moderate rock, Jazz blues, funk, ska, and every thing else.
I have loved 7-string guitars since I first laid my hands on one and Schecter has perfected them. I like all the Schecter models, but the 007 was a must have from the second I saw it. I have an Ibanez and have played many other brands, but none look and play as well as my see-thru black 007 Elite. You can only find better through a Custom Shop and a couple thousand dollars.
I bought this guitar used from a friend of mine in Cali since he was ordering a custom job from Carvin (and frankly, who wouldn't give up ANY guitar they own for a custom Carvin). This guitar is ridiculous. It plays almost as well as my USA Jackson, at ANY tuning. I've literally had to make no neck adjustments through all gauges of strings I've experimented with. I cannot recommend this guitar strongly enough for the price. Buy, buy, BUY. You will NOT find a better 7-string for the value. The only issue I have with this guitar is the pickups, I would recommend swapping them out. I received the guitar with a different lower-output bridge pickup installed, and it still plays super heavy, so I can only imagine how unholy this guitar would sound with a high-gain pickup thrown in.
I actually no longer feel completely comfortable playing any other guitar but the 007 Elite. It's my main guitar for all genres of music because of it's versatility of sound. Fairly lightweight, sturdy, beautiful looks, and looks like a bad ass axe. There's some room for customization if you choose. Straight up, this guitar is a good choice for those who love the bottom ends.
