I'm looking at this guitar since any Schecter I was looking at is on backorder

Figured this XPT707FX can't be bad. I love the necks on Ibanez's, I tried out one before and loved the feel of it.

The thing is has any of you heard about the Gibraltar bridge's. I'm used to to Tune-o-matic and Floyd Rose setup bridges. So I don't know the "info" on these.

Also if I DID get one of these, which i'm not saying I am, but I'd probably change the pickups to Blackouts.

Any of you try the XPT guitars? What'd ya think of em?

-Jackson DXMG (SH-2N, SH-6)
-Schecter Hellraiser C1 (18v)
-Ibanez XPT707FX (Blackouts)

I played i Xiphos (XPT700?) at my local store, and to tell u the truth u would be much much better off waiting for a schecter. Schecters are amazing (i own two). The hellraiser series is quite literally the best guitars you will ever play. Jeff Loomis' signature schecter is probably the nicest 7-string guitar on the market. Have patience and it will pay off. Anyway I haven't really played any gilbratar bridges before. The blackouts are really nice (better than EMGs imo).

Schecter's just kinda making me mad. They emailed me saying they would ship by mid-March, but now any C-7 Hellraiser is on backorder until June and the Jeff Loomis is on backorder till next month. Killing me.....I was really looking at the Loomis model yesterday too, go to look at it today "Backorder 3/4/08" D:

I bought a schecter loomis from them last summer. I actually went to the store to buy it, they're really cool and helpful. I was debating between the loomis and an ibanez 1527, and he straight up told me the schecter was a better value.
