The 3521 has a different bridge and a titanium reinforced neck. I'm not gonna say that you need a titanium reinforced neck, but that's certainly something some people might pay extra for. ...

I think you can reach a lot further than you'd expect by doing daily finger stretches.

But if you really want a 25.5" scale length 7 string, try to get a used Ibanez RG7620 or RG7621. Ibanez makes...

To check you truss rod, fret the guitar at the 1st and 18th fret on the low E sting, then observe the gap between the string and the 9th fret. It should be about a credit card thickness, a little...

Everything is going to affect the tone. The wood, hardware, paint, scale length, and (of course) the pickup will determine how the guitar sounds.

I don't like coil splitting, but I'm a fan of running a humbucker parallel. Basically that makes both coils into single coils and it still cancels the hum. As others have said, don't expect it to...

First place I would look is the used guitar wall at Guitar Center. You could probably find a used Korean made Schecter or LTD for around $300-$400. Some of them even have EMGs or Duncans already...

I can't remember, but didn't they stop making Roadstars after 88' in favor of the new RGs? Sorry, I don't know much about Roadstars, and even less about Korean Ibbies.

I agree with this. Take a look at the frets. If the easier to play guitar has shinier frets than the other, that could be a contributing factor.
