Let's go back to the beginning. When did Schecter start making 7 String Guitars?

Schecter Guitar Research was founded in 1976 in Van Nuys, California, USA. And, did you know Schecter initially started as a custom guitar shop, making high-quality replacement parts and custom-built 80's shredding style guitars? Sweet! 

Then, in the early 1990s, Schecter Guitars Research introduced their first 7-string guitar to a raving Shecter fan base (Coleman's Music team included?). 

Schecter began offering 7-string models to cater to the growing demand from guitarists looking for "another level" of guitars when artists like Satch, Via, Hammet and Nuno were at the helm. Since then, Schecter has continued to produce various 7-string guitar models to meet the needs of players in different musical genres - from djent fusion to metal. The exact year Schecter introduced their 7-string guitars is not precisely clear, but it all started in the early 1990s. 

Schecter Guitar Research, back then and today, are a company known for producing some of the highest-quality instruments on planet Earth, primarily for today's rock and metal music genres. The "7-string" in the name obviously refers to the number of strings on the guitar, one more than the traditional 6-string electric guitar - and one less than an 8-string, a whole other world and article.

When it comes to 7-string guitars, Schecter is some of the best in tone, playability and quality. Not to mention some of their monster metal players like Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Nevermore), Synyster Gates (Avenged Sevenfold), Dan Donegan (Disturbed), Keith Merrow (Conquering Dystopia, Alluvial) and more. 

Do we need to go on!

Here are some key features of a Schecter 7-string guitar:

  1. Seven Strings: Schecter 7-string guitars have seven strings instead of the standard six, and the extra string is usually a low B string, providing an extended low-frequency range and allowing players to explore deeper tones and more complex chord voicings. From djent to some of the most melodic guitar pieces you'll ever hear, and extra string really opens up new worlds.

  2. Perfect for Heavy Music: Schecter guitars, including their 7-string models, are popular among players in heavy metal, progressive metal, and other genres that require extended-range instruments. The added string can facilitate heavy riffing and lower-tuned playing. Think djent. Although that extra string is now one trick pony, some of the chord voicing you can create are heavenly.

  3. New Tonal Options: While most Schecter 7-string guitars come equipped with high-output pickups, they can also deliver a wide range of tones suitable for various musical styles like jazz and fusion. Players can easily switch between clean, crunchy, and high-gain tones with most Schecter 7-string guitars.

  4. Extended Scale Length: Folks new to 7 and 8 strings often need to learn that Schecter 7-string guitars often feature an extended scale length compared to standard 6-string guitars. This helps maintain tension on the additional low string and improves intonation and tuning stability with any neck shape.

  5. Superb Range of Models: Schecter offers lots of 7-string guitar models with different body shapes, finishes, and hardware options to cater to the preferences of each player. Check out some of the awesome guitars in the entire Schecter range here.

  6. Outstanding Quality Construction: Schecter is known for its attention to building quality and craftsmanship, and each Schecter guitar in Australia has to go through vigorous quality checks. Furthermore, Schecter guitars are constructed with high-quality tonewoods and components - even the most affordable models are some of the best quality guitars you can buy today.

  7. Affordable Options: While Schecter does produce high-end, premium custom guitars that will leave your jaw and wallet on the ground, Schecter also offers more affordable models, many under the Diamond series banner, including loads of 7-string guitars that are at a price point that's accessible to a wide range of players.

  8. They're awesome, period.

At Coleman's Music, we constantly see that Schecter 7-string guitars are favoured mostly by many guitarists who seek extended range and versatility in their playing or are after new voicing. This only sometimes applies to lower tunings and heavy distortion, but if you have a 7-string and play jazz, how could you not crank some filth for fun? 

Schecter 7-string guitars have gained popularity over the years, and Schecter continues to produce a wide range of 7-string models to cater to different player preferences and budgets.

How much harder is it to play a 7 string guitar?

You might be surprised - playing a 7-string guitar is not all that much "harder" than playing a 6-string guitar, depending on your guitar level. Of course, if you're still learning chords and are a beginner, a 7-string is best left for now. An intermediate to advanced player can switch easily!

7-string guitars naturally come with some unique differences that players need to adapt to. Whether these challenges make it "harder" depends on your perspective and ability to switch between instruments. There's no right way!

Here are some factors to consider:

  1. A Wider Neck: 7-string guitars have a wider neck to accommodate the extra string. This means you must adjust your fretting hand technique to navigate the wider spacing between the strings. Getting used to the increased finger stretch required for specific chord shapes and scale patterns can take some time.

  2. String Tension: The additional string on a 7-string guitar, typically a low B string, can have higher tension than the other strings. This can affect the feel of the guitar and may require adjustments to your playing technique, particularly for bending and vibrato on that string.

  3. Intonation and Tuning Stability: Ensuring proper intonation and tuning stability can be more challenging on a 7-string guitar with an extended range. Regular maintenance and setup are more important than a six-string to keep the instrument playing well.

  4. Picking Technique: If you're accustomed to alternate picking and fast runs on a 6-string guitar, you must adapt your picking technique to incorporate the extra string. This can take some practice to achieve speed and precision.

  5. Sonic Choices: With an extra low string, you have more tonal options, but this also means you must choose when and how to use it effectively in your playing. Finding the right balance between the low B string and the rest of the strings in your compositions can take some time and experimentation.

  6. Learning Curve: If you're transitioning from a 6-string to a 7-string guitar, there will be an initial learning curve as you adapt to the new instrument's nuances. However, with some practice, most players can quickly overcome these challenges.

Many Aussie guitarists find playing a 7-string guitar rewarding and creatively inspiring. The extended range allows for new musical possibilities and opens doors to unique sounds and compositions.

With practice, you can become proficient on a 7-string guitar in less time than you might think!

  3. Seymour Duncan Pickups: Some Schecter 7-string guitars come equipped with Seymour Duncan pickups. Models like the Seymour Duncan Nazgûl and Sentient are commonly used for their balanced tone and high output.

  2. Scale Length: Most Schecter 7-string guitars have a standard scale length of 25.5 inches, although there are exceptions. A longer scale length can improve string tension and intonation, especially when using lower tunings.

  3. Neck Material: Schecter uses various neck materials, including maple, mahogany, and multi-ply construction. The choice of material can impact the guitar's tone and overall feel.

It's important to note that Schecter offers a wide range of 7-string guitar models, from more budget-friendly options to high-end instruments.

The neck features and characteristics can vary significantly across these models, so it's advisable to check the specifications of the specific Schecter 7-string guitar you're interested in to get a clear picture of the neck profile, materials, and construction details.

What are the disadvantages of a Schecter 7 String Guitar?

While Schecter 7-string guitars are known for their quality and versatility, like any musical instrument, they have their disadvantages and limitations. These disadvantages may be unique, as they can vary depending on the specific model and individual preferences. Here are some potential drawbacks to consider:

  1. Size and Weight: Schecter 7-string guitars, like many extended-range instruments, can be larger and heavier than standard 6-string guitars. This can be uncomfortable for some players, especially during long performances or practice sessions.

  2. Learning Curve: If you're accustomed to playing 6-string guitars, transitioning to a 7-string guitar can have a learning curve. Adapting to the wider neck and extra string may take some time and practice.

  3. String Maintenance: The additional string on a 7-string guitar means there's more to maintain. This includes extra string changes, potential adjustments to the nut and bridge, and ensuring proper intonation.

  4. Cost: While Schecter offers a range of models at various price points, high-quality 7-string guitars can be relatively expensive. If you're on a tight budget, the cost of an excellent 7-string guitar may be a disadvantage.

  5. Style Compatibility: 7-string guitars can excel in various music styles, but some genres may have better choices. The extra string may not provide significant benefits if you primarily play music that doesn't require an extended low-end range.

  6. Tonal Balance: Achieving a balanced tone across all seven strings can be challenging, especially when amplifying the guitar. Players need to pay attention to pickup selection, string gauge, and amp settings to ensure a well-rounded sound.

  7. Portability: Due to their size and weight, Schecter 7-string guitars may not be as portable as smaller, lighter instruments. This can be a disadvantage for musicians who travel frequently or need to transport their gear frequently.

Despite these potential disadvantages, many guitarists find Schecter 7-string guitars excellent instruments that offer unique tonal possibilities and new musical dimensions to their sound and songwriting. The drawbacks mentioned above may be relatively minor compared to the advantages they provide for those who seek an extended-range instrument for genres like metal, progressive rock, or experimental music. Ultimately, the suitability of a Schecter 7-string guitar depends on your playing style, preferences, and musical goals.
