ESP H-1007 vs. Schecter C7 Custom. Both look great. The main difference is the 26.5 scale on the Schecter vs. 25.5 on esp & active on esp vs passive on schecter.

What would you choose? Why?

I prefer ESP over Schecter (And yes i have a guitar from both- M200/Tempest custom). To me its a "Neck thing". I prefer the ESP necks.
Have played some 7's from both and i still prefer the ESP.

My advice: Go and try them out of you can.

I find that the longer scale works for the low B string, so I'd go with the Schecter. You could always have the neck sanded down by a luthier if you don't like it. But yeah, definately give both of them a try if you can

Don't forget the Schecter also has coiltaps!

Schecter for me hands down. Not a fan of actives and I like long scales. And like said, coiltap
#5
I say schecter just for the simple fact I hate actives with a passion. But go play both and see which one you like more

Shecter Omen 6 with Seymour Duncan SH-6

I wish I could play both, no stores have them. So this will be a blind purchase.

I like the looks of the ESP better, but I'm not really a fan of the active pickups. I've only played actives at the store, haven't had any time at home tweaking with actives though.

I have a c1 elite and I am completely happy with it.

I'd take the LTD cuz my hands hate the thick Schecter necks. It's pretty much all about which neck you like more, if you like actives or passives, and if you'd rather have a tighter tension on your guitar with a 26.5 inch scale.

TBH 25.5 inch is fine with 7's you just need a bit thicker strings to get close in terms of tension on a 26.5.
