I was shopping for a seven string guitar for quite a while. I wanted something cheap that I could mod out and make into a killer guitar for next to nothing. So I decided to get the Schecter SGR C-7. The SGR line is Schecters lower-end model guitars. That being said, I was a little concerned about what I was going to get for the price. I was pleasantly surprised. The SGR C-7 plays excellent and the pickups sound killer as well. I was planning on putting new pickups in, but I may just keep the Schecter Diamond Plus, they kinda rock. I've been playing some heavy riffage and solos scream as well. The neck feels great in my hand and it is very comfortable to play.

The SGR C-7 came setup pretty nice, low action, and great intonation. My only complaint would be some minor fret buzz here and there. I always take my guitars in and have them setup properly anyway, so I'm not too concerned about the fret buzz right now. The price is reasonable, and the quality is decent for the price. If you are just starting out playing a 7 string guitar, the SGR C-7 is a great choice. If you've already mastered the 7 string, then you may want something on the higher end. But for the price, the SGR C-7 is a great bargain. Not a bad axe at all.

My brother just got this a month ago. I've played it several times after restringing and resetting the intonation. For the price, this instrument performs quite well.

The action isn't going to allow you to do effective speed metal arpeggios, and the pickups are a bit dark and dull. It's also quite a bit heavier than other guitars with a similar body shape. Comfortable for an hour or less at a time.

Recommended for those just want a seven-string practice guitar that plays well for just a little money.

    Schecter is on the mark and stands with companies like Ibanez and Gibson. My next purchase will definitely be another Schecter.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research SGR C-7 7 String Electric Guitar:

    This guitar is brilliant and very versatile. It is the perfect piece for a player who doesn't want to give up too much savings but still wants something that will sound efficient and sharp. The SGR C-7 is phenomenal in audio recording and great for jamming (live or in-house). It will work nicely with any amp combo or half-stacks and will sound groovy. Also, it offers great comfort to the player due to it's flat neck and smooth rosewood neck. The notes played on it are precise and are easy to hit. Also, it's scale offers a very large amount of down-tuning possibilities. At long last, for dorm-jamming, live performances or studio recording, it is a must have. I highly recommend this guitar.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research SGR C-7 7 String Electric Guitar:

        I was not expecting much from this guitar but it has surprised me. I usually roll my eyes when I read a review for a budget guitar that compares it to insturments that cost 2 or 3 times the price but, I am having to change my opinion.
        I had never played a 7string and did not want to drop a load of money just to find out my hands were too small or something. The most comfortable neck I have ever played! Seriously, in over 20 years playing guitar and having owned a more expensive Korean Schecter for the last 7 years this is one of the most comfortable guitars I have ever owned. The Chinese have come a LONG way, fast.
        The stock pick up is typical for the price range though. Pretty muddy on the B string. I will replace it shortly.
        Unbelievable value overall!

        Awesome guitar except the some of the frets are dead and buzzy. Very thin neck. The nut at the top that holds all the strings in place is jagged and popping out but I doubt it will come out. Pick ups arent the best. Other than that awsome. I hope to get a Music Man JP7 BFR in the future.

        I love this guitar. Its looks cool, plays well, the price was right, and its well made. My only advice would be to change the pickups. I have single coil pickups that sound better than these.

          This is my first 7 string. I love it. It has good tone for its price. Its made to shred and I'm finding the neck very easy to get around. the pickups are ok. I never like the stock pickups so my opinion in that is neutral. but I highly recommend this for a guitar.

            Comments about Schecter Guitar Research SGR C-7 7 String Electric Guitar:

            Ive heard how great the sgr c-7 is setup up from the factory...this is not hearsay, "The Dark" was perfect out of the box. Looks and feels like a top of the line device. This guitar is beautiful, hella metal. Plus, customer service @ Schecter got back to me within hours to register for the warranty, which you have 10days from the shipping date to do, but I was told by the tech specialist they will still gladly help you out if your not to far off from the deadline. Schecter is chillin. I will upgrade the pickups when I have a little extra cash and, other than guitar materials(wood type), I'll be on par with the $700+ guitars.
