Schecter Guitar Research Extended Range Electric Guitars
Another series of guitars you might like to take for a spin are the Banshees, which feature Seymour Duncan's Nazgul and Sentient humbuckers. Or, if you're a leftie, try the left-handed Blackjack A-7, which features the same pickups. The Banshees are also available with active EMG 81/85s if that's more your style, and the right-handed Blackjack ATX series come with Active Blackouts from Seymour Duncan. With these two guitar models, you're covered whether you prefer active or passive pickups - no problem.
The Damien Elite series is perfect if you're looking for a guitar that's more high-class and low-key. Also employing the EMG 81/85 pickups, this guitar is a Schecter favorite. Another classic model is the 7 or 8-string Demon, which lives up to its name with a look that's cool yet mean, and a sound that could only come from Seymour Duncan-designed HB-105 pickups.
Of course, few guitar lineups would be complete without a few signature models, and Schecter brings some serious shredders to the stage. One of the longest-standing relationships that Schecter has is with Nevermore guitarist Jeff Loomis, whose signature JLV-7 is available with or without a Floyd Rose bridge, so you can take it as you like it. Keith Merrow of Conquering Dystopia also has a Schecter signature, a 7-string KM-7. Rounding out the custom roster is Chris Howorth of In This Moment, with an eye-catching signature V-7 that incorporates Schecter's "Ultra-Access" neck for fast, nimble play and easy reach to every fret.
Hellraiser, Hellraiser Hybrid, Banshee, Blackjack, Damien or Demon: which do you like most? Maybe you've got your eye on one of the signature models - it's all good. Any Schecter Guitar Research extended-range electric guitar is a great choice. Whichever of these 7 or 8-strings you take home, you'll have an instrument to be proud of.
