Schecter 7-string über-mod project (w/ video)
 
Hi! So a year or so ago I decided I'd had enough of the limited specs among production 7's so I decided to take matters into my own hands and mod the living crap out of this poor Schecter. The results are as follows:

Original:






And finished by a good friend of mine, Jörgen at Nazenius Airbrush Art:

Note the mirror-polished finish and the fantastic faux-binding, as contrasted by the snow here:


Closeup of the binding:


Closeup of the silver metallic/pearl dragon. Looks sexy under stage lights! :)


The headstock, with a new, sprayed on logo that he cut himself. Clean! Alos note the binding again:


Satin neck finish:




I shaved off a good chunk of the original neck, it's similar to a UV neck now but perhaps a little more C-shaped.


Finally, here's a video with it in action:

Looks fantastic man.

Hot damn, that looks amazing.

Also, I love the idea of putting single coils on a 7, don't see many around.

Way cooler than the original. Good job!

Looks good, but your rhythm tone is crap.

Lol, did you just feel like showing off again? http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...d.php?t=1351248

Cool guitar and video though, nonetheless.

Not sure if I get what you're trying to say... that's a different guitar I built before this one, that guitar turned out good but it had problems with string action and tuning, as well as having only a 25" scale length. So I put this Schecter together instead.

Oh, yeah I thought they were the same. I see now that there's a difference haha. They just look really similar :cheers:

Looks cool for the most part, but that dragon is really cheesy.

Agreed, the hole where the one pot/knob is missing is also a bit weird looking imo.

I love the colour though

DiMarzio Paf7 in the bridge (might change it for a hotter pickup) and 2 Lollar Blondes.
