    First, we have the Banshee 8-string, as shown before.

    And then the return of the Classic series, including the old fixed bridge version and a new Floyd Rose-equipped one.

    They're also talking about expanding the Banshee series to have a 7-string version, and will have a Hipshot-loaded bridge.
    They also posted a picture of a Hipshot-loaded 6-string with what looks like Duncan Black Winters.

    And this appears to be the other 7-string they were talking about with a Hipshot, as well as the 57-7/66-7 set. They're calling it the "Hellraiser Hybrid" it seems.

    So, instead of bumping the 2013 thread, I decided to make this new one for the pre-WNAMM/post-WNAMM stuff.
     
    Surveyor 777, ZachK, Centrix and 22 others like this.

    Dunno what the "Hybrid" will be, but seems that they're using the offset-dot instead of the regular abalone cross, the new EMGs (don't remember their number), an hipshot and a shitload less abalone binding.

    Seems that I bought my Hellraiser a couple of years to soon. Schecter is upping their game for sure

    Pretty sure the Hellraiser Hybrid will be... well... a Hellraiser. :lol: Just something people will want to buy, since it has passive routes, a (looks like) Ebony board, offset dots, passive routes (EMG 57-7H/66-7H), and a Hipshot-style bridge.

    I want a 7 stringer of the banshee w/hipshot. Purple quilt maybe? Hate sunburst or whatever that one is. Looks great though, good thing they listened to the people and didn't stick with FR only models.

    aww man, i was hoping for direct-mount pickups on the seven as well, but I guess we can't have everything :rolleyes:

    it seems they nailed everything else though, ebony, passives, hipshot... hopefully we'll get some nice color options and these'll sell like pancakes :yum:

    You may get your wish with the Banshee if it's like the 6 and 8 string.

    Thank fook they didn't use a Tone-Pros on the Banshee model. I'm defintely getting one of the 7s next year. It looks like they are ditching the usual 707s for a 57/66-7 set!

    So Schecter is Ibanez and Ibanez is Schecter now? :lol:

    Nah the new models look great though. Looks like Schecter is listing to the demand of customers more. I wish they'd bring back the A-7 and the likes though. n

    USA Banshee 7 with a 26.5" would be incredible. I'd get one in a heartbeat.

    Like this?

    But yeah, I don't think USA production Schecter 7s will be 26.5... Seems like they're going all-out and using 27'' scales.
