    If I remember correctly, the SGRs are their designation for hardcases.

    I think it's the case meant for the C-7, they just copy and pasted the description for one of the C-7s.

    On a german forum, one user wrote to the Schecter distirbutiona bout those, and they said it will be a new made-in-china low budget line (SGR = Schecter Guitar Research ), below the Damien line and whatevertheygot. With the new "SGR" label, they want to have it clearly seperated from the rest of their linecard.

    When I was on the schecter site today I saw they have new Demon series. I looked like 5 minutes ago and they were gone they had Vs, Devils, and some 7s in titanium!

    Schecter need to make high-end guitars, not low-end. They already have the Omen series at a very affordable price.

    I have a Demon 7, and to be honest I wouldn't want to play anything lower-end than that...

    Damn! dat titanium finish !!!

    Do current Schecters with a TOM have the neck angled?
    It's a difference playing with my RG7321 and my Schecter because of the bridge/string height (not action, they way the bridges are)

    I have an Omen 7, but I admit the stock pickups did sound like crap but I swapped them out for a JB in the bridge and a 57' in the neck and had it professionally set up, the tuners are imprecise at best but I am on a tight budget so i have an excuse at least.

    I know that someone has posted about this before but I did an in depth research on this apparently new guitar and came up with very little, I only found a company listings website that identified the company with it's logo SGR by Schecter, on the German Website Thomann and I found this SCHECTER SGR BY SCHECTER C-7 SATIN BK - Thomann UK Cyberstore

    It appears to be a better looking 7 string with a Mahogany body (Questionablity about quality is debatable) but the pickups are not diamond series they are SGR by Schecter pickups and the scale is also debatable at 25.5 inches (I did the calculations from 648mm to inches) and it's flat black colour isn't really attractive either but the black chrome hardware does give it some justice.

    Although it looks better than the Omen 7, I don't like the specs I found out about it, especially the pickups if they are worse than the diamond series.

    Here is the logo I found

    http://www.trademarkia.com/logo-images/schecter-guitar-research/sgr-by-schecter-85162880.jpg

    At less money than the Omen which on this website is over £300 this is at £209 but is it really worth it being pretty much a Schecter equivalent of a Squier?

    EDIT: I got a pic with better resolution so you can see it close up for yourselves, I tried to get as in depth as I could but there is little info on this guitar.

    Update: I found out these are apparently Chinese built and built on a seperate line from the other Schecters on some German Forum, after finding that out I figured these are either good for Modding projects or 7 string beginners, I will try to find out more about these but I am coming up with nothing but SGR guitar cases :lol: plus strangely enough there is also a C-1 model on the same website under this 'SGR' name.

    And here it is.

    Doesn't SGR stand for Schecter Guitar Research?

    Yes it does, but I think they are using just the Initials if you like to sort of make a 'lesser brand name' as SGR by Schecter, the guitar I have posted is cheaper than an Omen 7 so I really don't know why Shecter have started doing this because they really didn't need to.

    I personally wouldn't buy it because of the price, you don't know what you are going to get.

    EDIT: The original topic has been merged with mine so I guess you get a fuller picture on stuff.

    Thanks to whoever merged it.

    The Omens really aren't that bad for the price. I'd be scarred of the quality of these, though.
