Hey guys, Got my Schecter C7 SLS Elite yesterday from Thomann. Looks like I got the last one It's a killer guitar and I love the specs: -Swamp Ash body (just like my KM7 and Banshee Elite) -Neck through body -Beautiful top/finish -Fishman Fluence modern pickups -Locking tuners -Ebony Fretboard -Compensated nut -26.5 inch scale length I also own a KM7 MK1 and Banshee Elite 7 (both hardtail) and I am a huge fan of the woods used in those as well as the neck thickness (or should I say 'thinness), scale length and ebony board etc. So naturally this guitar would be cool for me. One thing that sets this guitar apart from the other ones is the choice of pickups. I had never tried the Fishman pickups so I was very curious about those. I wasn't sure if they were all hype or better for real. My first impressions of those Fluence Modern pickups is that they are very cool indeed and quite unique. The active voicing has that typical active sustain and fullness (wall of sound) going on but at the same time it's still articulate and open sounding, definitely not bloated. I guess I would describe them as very mix ready with a full midrange without sounding honky or boxy. I haven't tried the passive voicing as much as the active but it also sounds good! Not as bright or Djenty as I was hoping but then again, I probably have to make some presets especially for that voicing though as that will probably sound killer. This voicing definitely sounds more passive with more dynamics. I'm planning on doing a video on my channel Sonic Drive Studio soon so keep an eye out if you want to see it. Aesthetically this guitar is beautiful! I love the look of the top with that fading finish and the ebony board as I love and prefer Ebony boards over anything else. There are some minor flaws here and there as can be expected from a guitar from south Korea but they are very minor. Just some (tool) marks on the fretboard as I've experienced more often on my Korean guitars. Having said that I love my Korean guitars and I don't mind a few minor flaws like this at all. I also have a few that are pretty much flawless so I'm not going to complain. The neck feels very comfortable and the thinness is comparable to my KM7 although that one feels just slightly flatter and less round, very slight difference though. The neck on my Banshee Elite 7 feels a little rounder though but again just a very minor difference. The body is fairly light but has a great snappy and resonant sound because of the swamp ash body. Absolutely LOVE that wood choice! Here are some pics, if you have any questions, fire away!
