First seven string guitar
Nikitapolo 29.03.2019
I was playing on this instrument for one month and I am ready to tell some details about this guitar. This is my first seven string guitar, also first guitar with active humbuckers. With this guitar, I used Boss GT1.

Firstly, I like how it built and overall feelings from touching it. It has good materials and I also like how it looks. Compare to my previous guitar, this has less weight. For a position, I am playing in classical position and it is quite comfortable to play, but for me, it was difficult to play it on a hip because it always going down.

For a sound, It was my first experience with active pickups and I got a good sound, also fewer noises from the processor. The sound is great. It has good deep sound with distortion and clears. But I received a problem with an additional metallic noise. I sent it back, but Thomann support said, that this is not a manufacturing problem, this is resonance effect. Support and return procedures were fast, and this is a good point for getting a guitar from this shop, they will not drop you)

In the end, pickups are the biggest problem for this guitar. They were produced by Schecter (or outsourced) and they have a microphonic problem. The noise problem was in pickups and I gave it to master. He took pickups from sockets and put material on the bottom. Also, some cloth before bridge and GruvGear on top. I still have some additional sound, but I have less and it is more comfortable to play.

if you want to play for yourself and you don't need to record songs, this guitar is a perfect choice. Also, if you are a perfectionist, you could have problems with this noise and you could need to fix it. If you have the ability to check it, try this guitar in local shops.


I don't think you can get more for the same or less price.

7 String guitar perfect for most of metal and aggressive styles.
-active pickups
-not expensive guitar
- that black satin color is beautiful.
-The line on the side around the entire guitar, i would say is too yellow. but that's just a taste thing.
- i thought the neck would be more comfortable. anyway it is confortable. but maybe is just a preference if it could be a bit more smooth and not that wide.
Anyway is a monster for "low" price. very happy.


I love it! SCHEC this review!

Got this beauty week ago,
i was on a budget so i realy took my time and checked what should i get for under 500¤. I wanted 7 string and was choosing among Jackson/Ibanez/Schecter ... was a long battle between those 3 companies and at the end, Schecter prevailed. I did choose it only based on good reviews and some youtube tests. Also the looks are unpaired in under 500¤ category, same goes for pickups, this one was the only one for 500¤ that had actives in it. Since i really wanted actives, i choose this one.

I don't regret a thing bout this guitar.

It's built like a tank, came to my country nicely and safetly packed,
already set up pretty good. I will do the setup from 0 soon, though.

Pickups sound solid, cleans with a little reverb and echo go long way, and for the heavier sound? Well, let me say this, on drop A, sound is mean, angry and responsive. I paired this guitar with REVV G3 pedal and custom patch on my Katana 50.

And for this price, guitar is amazing! Sure i would like better pickups, wood and so on.

But for 500¤?



Excellent for price

-Bridge pickup has really nice clarity, even when tuned down to G
-Clean leads
-Clean tones incredible, a nice surprise from the active pickups
-Wenge fretboard feels great for smooth playing, no sharp fret ends
- looks phenomenal, the matte black finish goes great with the yellow stripe

- neck pickup sounds a little weak, not an issue due to bridge's clean leads
-didnt come in any way set up, needed to take it to a shop to get the action set
