Why bother with 6 when you can have 7?

By NoneSoVile

from Where The Slime Live

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

Beautiful and great value.

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.

Schecter has out done themselves this time...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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!

Speechless!!!!

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.

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 the redisigned version It kicks a**

By KoRn munky

from Forest Hills, NY

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.

A Stylish, Low-End Machine

By Smoke47gtr

from Evansville, IN

See all my reviews

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.

Absolutely amazing!

By Cursed Lemon

from Detroit

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.

My one and only

By FollowingNothing

from Stockholm, NJ

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.

This is one great guitar for the money. The action is great and the humbucker single coil combo has great versatility. Plays great and looks awesome. Schecter can really make a good guitar.

Amazing Tone

By MGray

from Centennial, CO

See all my reviews

I am a solid new fan of Schecter Guitars. I usually play a Gibson LP Studio Plus and love it...But my new 007 Elite is my new favorite (although getting used to playing with another string has been a M.F.) The tap-coil feature easily doubles its already amazing tonal achievements.I bought this Trans-Black 007 Elite as a factory second: It has an almost imperceptible burn through on the finish in one of the cut-aways. Guitar is beautiful, with satin nickel hardware (not black chrome as description says), low action and great playability. Smartest purchase I've ever made. I love this guitar so much, I bought another Schecter for a back up 7 (a used C7 Diamond Series) and am equally happy with it.I don't usually give 10 star ratings, but in the value category, a 9 won't do it justice.

Schecter 007 Elite

By evil_genius

from Birmingham, AL

This is a great looking guitar,the photo does'nt do it justice. It played great straight from the box. The only thing that I had to change was the strings. The low B buzzed a little, but that was easily fixed by swapping to D'Addario chromes. I would definitely recomend this guitar.

Great Guitar

By The_Richard_Special

from Leakesville, MS

See all my reviews

This guitar is awesome! Aside from a lack of sustain (which a compressor pedal will help) this guitar plays like a dream. The action is "just right" and it has a push/pull coil tap which makes it sound like a Les Paul or a Strat. The string thru and the set neck give this ax a great tone. I couldn't have asked for a better guitar.

This thing is a beautiful beast...

By 7 String Freak

from Texas City, TX

Though it took me 3 months and all of my graduation money ($950...yes, that much because I'm left handed...that's why it also took so long to make) I must say, the wait was definitely worth it. Schecter screwed with me, not letting me choose the black color I wanted, I was forced to get the black cherry cause I'm left handed. Yes, because I was left handed. But I must say, it was a better choice now...this guitar is just GOREGOUS. So classy looking, but so mean sounding, hehe...I looove it. I can tune it as low as I want, and it stays right with me. My main complaint is the duncan designed pickups...when I turn up my amp, I get an annoying humming noise sometimes, maybe it'c cause I have alot of distortion, lol, but that's how I like it. Nontheless....if you want a beautiful 7 string with a mean attitude, this is the one. Peace.

Great value, near perfect

By Don Capitan

from Albuquerque, NM

See all my reviews

I bought this guitar mostly for the look, it is gorgeous! I do not play heavy metal/thrash with it...I play funk & R&B, and after people get over the fact that I am playing that kind of music with a 7 string, they find out what a versatile instrument it can be. The only problem is, when playing clean in the rhythm position, it is not as crisp as I would like, but gets the job done with quality, good looks, and value.

First off, Im a picky guitar player. But when I played this guitar, I instanly fell in love with it. Has a beautiful body, great sound, everything. The only thing I would change on the guitar would be the pick-up set up. I would've had 2 humbuckers. And 2, the price... it's a little expensive for me. But after I play it, I just want it even more. This is a great guitar to get.

A Screamer!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Schecter continues to surprise me: when reading the initial stats' on this guitar, I thought "well, this might not be everything that it claims to be"...until I tried one out at a local store, and ultimately when I ordered it new from this site that same day. The single-coil and dual-coil setup is surprisingly versatile, and emits a well rounded, full, tasteful sound. Yes, this is a smaller scale guitar (just like any Ernie Ball Music Man) but you seem to harness a lot more clarity and control, even if it feels too small-scale for you at first.To be honest, the "Duncan Designed" pickups factory installed have a LOT of scream! Sure, it would be worthwhile down the road to put some real Duncans or EMG's in there, but it's hard to gauge their necessity at this point...personally, I won't upgrade them for a while.As far as the finish- beautiful. The see-through black option DOES come with a matte-silver finish on the hardware, really pronouncing a tasty contrast to the general aesthetic: this guitar looks vicious and classy on you at the same time.The only thing that bothered me was the weight: usually, you'd associate a "more-than-decent" guitar with a heavy weight to it...the 007 seems very very light BUT- it seems, through my acclaim to this product, that Schecter is learning how to break a lot of rules in terms of how to manufacture a spectacular instrument. My only wish is for Schecter to offer this with a tremolo or Floyd Rose bridge...but fair enough. I'm more than happy with this product- try it out today!

Simply Beautiful

By Entranc3d

from Kansas City, MO

I ordered this one based on a friend's recommendation, and they were on perma backorder, so I had to wait a couple weeks to get it. but it was well worth the wait. The pictures really don't do the guitar justice. the neck is a lot slimmer than it looks, and the body is somewhat smaller than I expected, which is a good thing. The finish is gorgeous, as well. This one was incredibly easy to play, the action is near perfect in my book, and the controls are well placed. The only complaint I had about it was the lack of fret markers on the top of the fingerboard, but it did have markers on the side, so just something to get used to. Overall a big thumbs up!
