This Guitar Is an Absolute Steal!

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

This guitar would be great as a six string version, with great action, better than average pickups, a great feel, and very solid construction. As far as 7-string guitars go, this has a nice, solid and clear tone without being in your face. There is some slight buzzing at the first few frets on strings 6 and 7, but otherwise it is perfectly set up to play. It provides surprisingly good distortion and sustain, although I play more clean tones than distorted ones. The feel is great, especially since it is a 7 stringer and the necks tend to be larger the more strings you have. Other 7 string and 8 string guitars I auditioned, especially from Dean, Ibanez, Jackson, and even other Schecters, did not measure up to this one, even though they were anywhere from $100 to $600 more. Throw in a gig bag included with the guitar, and its a killer deal. I use this guitar for recording as well as practice.

SGR

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

I bought this guitar on sale and it is fantastic. Nice build job, a moderately heavy guitar, and it even includes a gig bag, unlike most guitars in this price range. If you do not look at the price, you will think you had spend $400++. Buy it, you will be happy an it was a very easy setup, with nice frets. I repeat...........Nice frets.

Great Guitar for Cheap

By JAYME

from Antioch CA

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

So i decided i wanted to try a 7 string out never played one but i wanted to experiment. I play a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 so i figured I'd try their cheap 7 string cause schecter makes amazing guitars at an affordable price. So i traded my old BC Rich Warlock and a marshal MG10 amp and picked this SGR c7 up for a total of $20. got it home restrung it and man for the price this thing is REALLY REALLY NICE! i tuned it to Drop A cause i wanted to just practice some Feared stuff and Conquering Dystopia just to see how it sounds running it through a Rocksmith cable and using Guitar Rig 5 pro it sounded pretty awesome. Pro's- The neck is a thin C neck so it is surprisingly comfortable. the stock pickups aren't too bad make some nice chugs. easy to set up how you like Action intonation ect. VERY CHEAP!! for what this cost me could have been a $300-$350 guitar easily. On Clean channel playing high notes above the 12th fret with the neck pickup sounds really nice. Cons-The tuners are not that great and they were loose when i restrung it easy fix though just tighten them up with a wrench. Their is a constant fret buzz you cannot get rid of by normal means of adjusting action and truss rod some of the 24 Jumbo frets sit higher than others so they need to be filed down. the Pickups while being able to put out decent sound get pretty muddy tuned lower than Drop A and playing higher notes on the neck pickup with distortion isn't that great the distortion pollutes the sound with overtones and it sounds out of tune. With a little help this guitar could be a really nice guitar for a rhythm guitarist i would suggest new tuners get the frets shaved down and truss rod adjusted by a professional unless you are confident in your own skills. A New set of pick ups. i would use a Seymour Duncan Nazgul Sentient Combo i play heavy metal and this thing would be a super solid guitar it's tough with a little help this thing could definitely go on a world tour. If you are just wanting to experiment with a 7 string without paying a lot of money i would say absolutely get this it plays really well and sounds well enough for you to decide right off the bat if you like 7 strings. Schecter does not skip on quality per price point. this guitar should easily be sold for $350 and it goes for $199 in store you could probably get it for $159 talking to a sales person. it is awesome because of this i now love 7 strings.

Definitely worth the money and time!

By MIKE

from Toledo Ohio

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

Brought mine home and unpacked it and plugged it into my various amps and was blown away! Loved the string bends and harmonics right off the bat. Its my first 7 string that I have owned and since I couldn't afford an Ibanez Jem I thought why not give this a try. I believe if you are going to start on 7 strings this is the guitar for you! No problems with it at all. Very much satisfied with my purchase! I ran it through a Crate, Line 6 and a Marshall through my various peddles and was off and playing in no time!

Impressive

By Eric Morgan

from Belleville, MI

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

I was looking for a back up 7 string for a higher end model that I have. I also wanted a fixed bridge model. The price of this was the first thing that caught my eye. I picked this guitar up today and I was the one who took it out of the box and did all the inspection and I have to say it's what you should expect. Took it home plugged it in and some minor tuning due to new strings and I was off and running. I've put probably 5 hours on it since bringing it home and things are sound as a pound. I had planned when I purchased this (online) to put new pick ups in but I have to say it's probably not necessary. Sure the window is open to do so but the pups that come with this aren't all that bad. Muddy if you are a step and a half down but there aren't much that aren't "too" muddy at that tuning. Great help from the staff at the GC store. It's a great starter if you are just getting into the 7 string thing. I bought it without ever playing it and I'm not disappointed. I hope anyone looking has the luck I've had with purchasing this guitar.

Great 7 string!

By Joe Meyers

from Reisterstown, MD

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

After having this guitar for a few days and playing around with it a lot, I have yet to notice a single problem. It came stock with slinky strings that I think are Ernie Ball and the construction is totally solid. This thing feels like a tank. I'd say it'd be okay to take it touring if you're a smaller band. The stock pickups aren't the best but they are great for being stock and you could easily get away with playing on them without replacing them, though if you do, I recommend DiMarzio Crunchlab 7s if you're going for metal, which is what most seven players do. If you're going for a more jazzy tone, the stock should be fine or replace them (I don't know much about jazz pickups as a Metal player). The neck is very stable and easy to play on. It was a very easy transition from a six string to this guitar and I recommend it for anyone who wants to try out a 7 without spending 600+ dollars on a high-end guitar. It also has great action and string height straight out of the box, though there are a few spots with a tiny bit of buzz. It also came with a gig bag, which is a pretty nice one. If you're going out touring, I suggest buying a hardcase just to be safe, though. Overall, the guitar is super and is great for beginner to intermediate players. If you're an advanced player with experience with seven strings, I'd suggest buying a more expensive one if you can, but this is definitely a great buy. Pretty much the only problem I noticed is that the 3 way pickup switch is a little loose for my tastes (I like it pretty tight) but other than that this thing is great straight out of the box and I didn't even need to set it up.

Good bang for your buck

By Cole Johnson

from Trenton, NJ

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

I bought this guitar because I had never owned a 7string and didnt want to spend a lot of money on something I might not like. Let me tell you, this is a great first 7-string, or great for someone wanting to experiment or mess around with a 7-string. If you have the money, putting in new pickups will make this guitar sound like a beast. I put a Seymour Duncan Invader-7 in the bridge and I was blown away, for a total of 300 dollars, I have a guitar that can compete with models in the 500-700 dollar range. I would have given it 4 stars since the stock pickups tend to be a little muddy, especially tuned down, but then I remembered, for the money, this guitar is def worth 5 stars. I was worried about the tuners, being that the guitar was so cheap, but the tuners have no problem staying in tune at all. I have my guitar tuned down to ADGCFAD and it stays in tune! I had planned on buying a nicer 7-string down the road if I liked this one, but after getting the invader installed, this has become one of my favorite guitars in my collection.

Great guitar for the price.

By Stephen Compton

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

Just picked up this guitar a couple weeks ago. This is a pretty well built guitar for the asking price, not the best bridge but it works for a budget 7 string. Great purchase.
