    Hey guys,

    So I have been searching for my first 7 string guitar, and I have mainly been interested in the Schecter Hellraiser C-7 FR and the Schecter banshee-7 FR. I am curious about other 7-string options that are equipped with a Floyd rose that are in the $800-$1000 range. I think I also prefer passive pickups over active pickups, but I am still willing to try active pickups if I am interested in the guitar.

    Given the price range, Schecter is the way to go. There's still a passive version of Banshee-7 FR available from DCGL. I bought one of the three remaining last year, and it's a killer guitar. It's probably a little pricier than active versions these days, but I think you might be interested.

    Thanks for the input man

    I checked out your post of the banshee and I am really impressed with the guitar, and the post itself was very informative

    I think the Banshee is the guitar I am going to side with :)

    I'm an Ibanez fan and would suggest the RG752. There are a couple on Reverb that are under $1100 new.

    Ibanez is reliable
    Can't really speak on Schecter
    If you want a Jackson,I recommend you try it before you buy it.

    There were a few LTD BS-7's on reverb a couple weeks back that were going for like 750-800, and that's a ....ing steal. Those are badass guitars.


    And it has an original Floyd, so.....WIN

    Aww ...., I thought they were originals.


    They're 1000 series, which aren't bad at all. They're on the new JP-16.
