Ive heard a lot of great things about this guitar, and am mostly set on buying one. However, on every review ive read it says the neck is quite thick making it hard for people with small hands to play. I know 7 strings have wide necks anyway, but as im used to thinner necks i was wondering how thick the neck actually is compared to other guitars. Theres no way of getting to try this guitar or even any schecter near where i live so i cant see for myself. So if anyone has this, or even another schecter 7, could you tell me what the necks like and how this is to play?
Thanks

There is a noticeable difference in width, but it really isn't that hard to adjust. Most people who switch to 7's take about a week to adjust to the new feel.

TS have you played any schecter necks? It is suppose to be thinner than their standard necks.

great, some of the reviews ive seen said the necks were quite thick, but if theyre not then then im definitely ordering one. I can cope with the change in width

I have a C-7 Hellraiser (the guitar which the Loomis is based on) and the neck is MUCH thicker than a Strat/Wizard neck. However, I have really small hands and I have no problem playing it at all. If you're used to thinner necks it could take some adjusting to but after awhile you just get used to it. Great guitar.

Ive always disliked the necks on schecters, too thick for my tastes, il be getting a ibanez 1527 soon, thin neck heaven

I was actually looking hard at the Loomis as my first 7 string as well. The neck thickeness is no problem, my only worry is getting used to the width. I love the sound 7 strings get, and I love Nevermore, so I'm hoping I'd adjust quick.
