7 strings tend to be unstable, but not this one. My friend has one of these and an Ernie Ball 7 which cost three times as much, but he uses both equally; which is a massive compliment. This guitar does not go out of tune, which is a rarity in a seven. The pressure on a 7 string neck is immense and this guy handles it. Just an amazing instrument. The pickups are deep and have a ton of bite like you would expect from a top tier 7 string. Fantastic build quality yet again from Schecter. *Hands on review by Christopher M. from store 57 in Indianapolis.
