Howdy ya'll!

So I'm already planning my next guitar purchase and I'd like some advice. Basically, I want a 7-string, preferably with a Floyd or comparable trem, and in the £300-350 price range. I'm looking at this and it's only drawback is it has no trem. Love the color though!

So can anyone recommend some alternatives? Oh... and I'm in the UK.

Cheers!

They're ok guitars, I would personally go with a 7421 + CL/LF set but that's not a bad choice at all.

I agree.

The Schecter is fine, just try one before you buy one, heard the necks are not for everyone.
Current gear:
Carvin CT6M
TC Electronics Dark Matter distortion
Harley Benton 2x12, with Celestion V30s
Laney Ironheart 60w tube amp

2nd hand Ibanez RG7620/1527 or go home.

Nothing else worth while out there.

That doesn't look bad at all for the money. Definitely try before you buy but I guess that goes without saying as you should always try an instrument first.

Maybe this Ibanez could be another option >> Link

Or even the Omen 8 >> Link

after refinishing a cheaper schecter, i don't think i would ever buy one. i strip the paint and sand to bare wood. there had to be 10 pieces of wood or more in the body alone, as well as some pieces having big knots. that i guess they tried to hide with some type of filler.

edit: the higher end schecters are probably a lot better, i have played a few of them and had a friend who got a hellraiser right when they were released quite a few years. it was a nice guitar.

i haven't seen that in any other guitars i have refinished. maybe that is the standard at that price range. if so that sucks.
