I'm super interested in buying this 7. But I have a question is it worth it for the money. I need a 7 string and the Schecter offers everthing I need. Just want some opinions from owners/frequent users.

Yeah, it's a pretty good 7. The neck is not as thick as people make it out to be, but the neck finish may bother you if you hate painted necks.
What do you wanna know about it?

EDIT: also, I'm not sure how well the JCM 800 would handle the low B...

It is. It's a damn baseball bat... well it is for me, because I'm used to Ibanez necks. The neck is the exact reason I haven't bought one.

So am I, and I didn't find it as comfortable as you did.

I heard the Loomis' neck finish is different from the Hellraiser if you find the HR's neck sticky.
Another cheaper option is the LTD Viper 407; the neck is a bit thinner but the scale is shorter and the neck joint feels different.

Yeah I was looking at that LTD but I hate satin finishes. I also want a new head so I think I may good for a cheap option like a Schecter Blackjack 7 I think it's called.

I'm guessing you don't like Ibanez as much as Schecter, but give 'em a chance too.

Oh no, I love Ibanez, But was looking for something a little more than a RG7321, that's all.

it depends really.. a thin neck doesn't mean your hands will go faster, it just means it feels different.

have you ever felt a warwick neck in comparison with an ibanez neck on a bass?

warwick necks GIGANTIC. but damn are they comfy.

also if you're looking for a 7 string with a trem, you'll probably have more luck going with an ibanez.

if you want hardtail? you'll have better selection with schecter. i find LTD/ESP fall in the middle having moderate selection between the two.

in my observation at least.

If you can find them locally (used, since its discontinued), check out the Ibanez MIJ RG7621 ... awesome neck.

There's generally a 7421 or 7621 floating around on eBay somewhere. There's the S7320, 1527, 7620 or 7420 if you want a trem.

EDIT: Or you could try for the very rare RG7EXFX2. They're on a couple of Japanese sites, good spec for the money. I don't mean to rub your face in Ibanez, I could think you should consider all options

I wouldn't go with the 7420 unless I had no choice; the bridge is by no means piss-poor, but it's not good enough for daily bar-wanking. I have the 6 string version of that guitar btw.

^Yeah, Ibanez hasn't been very good with (production model) finishes after the 80's..

I don't really want a trem as I already have multiple guitars with FRs. I think what I'm going to do is just wait it out until I find a fairly nice deal on something. Thanks guys for not raping with the "use the searchbar" comments. You were super helpful also.

Lots of 7421s and 7621s on evilBay now ... seems a lot of musicians are feeling the pinch, hard. Also, I think the 7620 is the best 7, ever.

You could block the tremolo if you do get a trem guitar. It's not gonna sound as nice as the fixed bridge version of the guitar (probably) but it'll be pretty close.
