Between the Schecter Loomis 7 (FR/ fixed) and the Jackson CKB KV7 (Corey from Triviums sig thats coming out next year).

Loomis:
Maple neck
Maple Fingerboard
Ash Body
26.5" scale



Corey (I'm guessing as most Vs r like this):
Maple neck
Ebony Fingerboard
Alder Body
25.5" scale


(Thats the prototype, the finish is yet to be finalized and since it's gna be an import it will most likely have no binding around the neck or headstock)

top one

I think you're better off not getting a signature model since you pay a little more for the name. But if I had to choose between those two, my vote is for the Jackson. I do love Jacksons.

since they both have emg's and a floyd rose your just gonna have to figure out what shape you like better or what brand. id get jeff loomis's though. amazing guitarist.
#6
I've played the C7 and the Loomis and personally I like the Loomis ALOT more than the C7. I don't really mind that its a sig because the Loomis is actually worth the price. As for the V can't help it... it's the only 7 string V on the market (well which comes out next year). AND I am not a fan of Agiles so don't even mention their stuff
#7
Ooooh, you make it so hard!

I'd go with the Schecter out of the 2, just because I really like double-cutaway guitars. And don't really like Vs.

Oh, and I have a question not related to the thread: Why do most guitars for shredding how the volume knob right below the bridge pickup?! It's like there's all that room to the right or left, but no, the have to put it right. below. the bridge. Pickup. Annoys me to no end.

Ah, I gotta go to bed. I'm rambling.

ESP's got a 7 string V, and if I'm not mistaken, so does Schecter.

i had my eye on the loomis for a long time, but then i tried a schecter 7-string and the neck was wayyy too thick for me.

Oh yea I forgot bout the ESP. Well yea they have the behemoth nergal one but then it's LTD (which from my experience... meh). The ESP one just cost too much. As for schecter, hmm well I'm looking for like a sharp V shape not the classic round edge ones so yea...

Schecter necks are pretty big on their 7s. For the Loomis it has a U neck profile (which is quite cool as I've never played a neck like that) and the C7 has a C profile. A big neck + C profile doesn't work well for me (its like a baseball bat) so C7 no tq.
#12
Loomis all the way.

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.
#14
Out of those two, ignoring wood options... the first one. Better upper-fret access and a longer scale.
#15
From a total "what people are gonna think of you" perspective.

Nevermore is a band where if you listen to them you won't get flamed etc etc. Trivium on the otherhand are a band that WILL get you flamed.
As a note I am a fan of both bands but of course if you couldnt care less what people think. You're gonna have to try both.

I personally would go for the schecter.
#16
I own both schecter and Jackson guitars, I've also played more than my fair share from each company. Though I've never played a jackson 7 string, I have many a schecter. Schecter definitely has a beastly 7 string. I've never played one that wasn't well worth the money and then some.


Definitely the shecter.

The loomis 7 felt better to me than a soloist 7 I played a while back (I assume the soloist and the V have a similar feel with the compound radius neck)

The loomis looks better too, and it's not retardedly overpriced for what it is. Though it might be a bit more compared to the other Schecter 7s, I still think it's more badass.

Well if there was a KV7 then I would get that instead. I do listen to both nevermore and trivium but I'm not thinking of getting the V cuz it's coreys sig but because its the only 7 string V I like that is out there (well soon, ESP n agile no like :P).
#19
I like the Loomis better.

That being said check out Agile Interceptor Pro, they make a 25.5" scale and 27" scale version and they are almost the exact same specs as the Loomis sig just cheaper.

I'd take the Schecter. I don't like Jacksons.

I would personally take the Schecter, but there are other seven strings out there that are on par or better than those guitars in terms of quality, for less money.

I'm going to do what I do in all these threads. Look into Agile. Or at least a couple other brands like Ibanez, ESP, etc. (if you haven't already).

I can almost guarantee that Agile is the best quality for the value. My friend owns the Interceptor Pro 727 in the green finish, and I have to say, after playing it and learning what he paid for it, I've been GASing one in natural satin ever since.
#23
As much as I hate Superstrats, I'd go with the Loomis. That Beaulieu sig is...it's just a generic metal guitar. D= And I like swamp ash, if that's what you mean by "ash", and maple fretboards are the sexiest things known to man.

I'm a big Jackson fan, but if I was going to buy any seven string it would HAVE to be the Loomis.
#28
I would go with the Jackson, but that is because I prefer the ebony fretboard.

Its up to you, they are both good guitars.

Duuuuude, you got ****ing RIPPED off. Who the hell would pay 1,000,000 for an Ibanez?

that loomis for sure. only because i like maple freboards. and loomis.
Grammar and spelling omitted as an exercise for the reader.

Since I own the Loomis I'm obviously going to support you getting it. It is a great guitar, so you really can't go wrong. Personally, I would never go shorter than 26.5 on a 7 or your B is going to be floppy as hell. That and that is one ugly ass finish on that V, even if it is a prototype.

Here is an Agile so you can see how similar they look to the Loomis besides color of course.





I got mine for $380.00 US Dollars...I think new they are 600 or so.
