Stepping into the seven string arena in the coming weeks. I have a 50s style neck on my LP. Is the Schecter's neck any flatter or thinner? Thanks to anyone who owns it or has played it.
Gibson.

s a baseball bat.

That's too bad. I've also been gassing for the Loomis signature (the one without tremolo) for a while now, but while I absolutely love wide necks, I'm not comfortable with thick ones.

What?

The Loomis is probably the thinnest Schecter 7 neck, and while it is thicker than an Ibanez neck, it certainly isn't uncomfortable.

Is that necessarily a bad thing anyway?

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

Nope.

The hellraiser necks are quite uncomfortable to me though.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Thanks for the input and the video review guys!


No problem man, thats one of the reasons I made it, because I noticed a lot of people were worried about the neck thickness.

It's in-between Ibanez and 50s Gibson necks when it comes to thickness. Certainly not the thickest. Although, it is one of the thicker 7 string necks I've used. Haven't played much other than Ibanez 7s and the Loomis though.

Pretty good feeling guitar.
