Jeff Loomis 7 string with Floyd Rose

I'm very happy with this guitar. This is the second Schecter Jeff Loomis guitar I've owned. I bought one back in 2010. Personally, I'm not a big Schecter fan, but they made something special with this model. I am definitely a fan of the JL7. I had never had a chance to play the Seymour Duncan Blackouts prior to buying this guitar. The first JL7 I bought came with the soap bar EMG 707s, which are great pickups. But these Blackouts are definitely a cut above the EMG 707s. They have a bit more horsepower to them. The clean tones are glassy and crisp. When in overdrive, the bridge pickup has a snappy growl to it, and it likes to thump with palm mutes. The overdrive on the neck pickups is very interesting. It has a lot of sustain to it and that little extra warmth that good neck pick ups should have, yet when playing without palm mutes it even sounds good for rythm....which I've never experienced in a neck pickup. The warmth really comes through on the higher notes, yet on the lower notes, it still has a growl of its own. I'm using the active version btw. There are passive JL Blackouts, but I've never used them. The neck is a bit thinner than the first JL 7 I bought, which is fine. The neck is one of the best features of this guitar. I also have to say it while I'm thinking about it, the folks at Sweetwater did a great job setting up the truss rod in this guitar. I've never seen a straighter neck on a new guitar. There's JUST ENOUGH relief to keep the strings from buzzing. My tech friend looked at it and said "Wow! Someone knew exactly what they were doing." I'm really impressed with the 55 point inspection/set up, and overall setup the Sweetwater techs did on this guitar. David G. and Eric guys did a great job. Thank you. Yes, Sweetwater provides the names of the techs that set up the gear you order, and their signatures to back up their work. It doesn't get anymore professional than Sweetwater. I'll never shop anywhere else online again.

bloody vampyre badassery!

i just got this a couple of days ago and i am very satisfied. everything about this guitar is awesome. the tone and weight of the body, the smooth quality of the neck, the jumbo stainless frets, it is just so easy to play. i was a bit skeptical about the floyd rose 1500 as i am used to the german models but it performs perfectly. it came set up very well. i did however remove a spring in the back to take the extra tension off and make it easier to pull off squealing harmonics and deep dive-bombs. the trem arm is designed a little different though because its a push in design rather than a standard screw in type. there is no bushing on it so no need to worry about replacing that later. the quality of this instrument is exceptional in its simplicity. the binding around the neck and headstock and the inlays are clean and set this thing off nicely. finally.... the pickups. i am one of those guys that uses the classic EMG 81/85 combos. these SD JL Duncans sound awesome. they are very organic like passive's but yet tight and aggressive like active pickups. i play a lot of metal, from progressive to extreme and these pickups hand it out in double doses. i love them. two very big thumbs up to Schecter on this and two more big thumbs up to Derek Kemp and Sweetwater for making this happen for me and delivering it so quickly.

best guitar iv owned

Iv been a fan of Ibanez for years I love the wizard necks.This is the closest to a wizard hp neck iv found and the jeff loomis pick ups are so good!! its an amazing guitar to play I could go on and on about it.totally worth the price , iv played $3,000 guitars that wernt this good.


This guitar straight out RIPS... I had owned the first version of this model with EMG707s and let me say, the upgrades are awesome. The Signature Loomis pickups are aggressive and articulate with speed picking. Clean tones are glassy and ring out with clarity on the funkiest of chords. I really like the switch up on the placement of volume knob/pickup selector, and the new cutaway allows for wicked fast soloing. I can not thank Justin Rix and Sweetwater for goin above and beyond for their customers. 5 stars for Sweetwater customer support.
