    I haven't tried either. However, I had a budget of $1500 that I pushed to $2000 and still ended up ordering the KM7 mk2. I'll be getting it next month. That's my vote

    Hi Folks! Just entered here by recommendation :)

    I´m looking for a new 7 string and fell in love with Schecter. All of them play very tight and have a great sound, and - most important for me - the b-string is allways tight, with no snaring or intonation problems (my Les Paul standard 7 with a 24'' Scale is a nightmare when it comes to intonation...) So I played a Schecter Jeff Loomis signature (very nice, but the shiny black body is a no go to me), and a Banshe 7 Elite (sadly out of my price range.).

    Now I got two new candidates (but I have no oppurtunity to test it):

    Banshe Extreme 7 (looks great! And when it plays as good as the elite, this will be mine ;) )
    or
    Banshee Damien Platinum 7 (but I don´t like the active PUs. And theres something between excitement and embarrassment, when it comes to the bat inlays...)

    What kind of music we do: Iron Maiden with a death / thrash infusion. Some rock vibes, chords on the lower strings, no pure palmmute chuggah ;)

    What would you recommend?

    Thanks and regards

    The Banshee. Looks better and I hate the feeling of TOMs compared to fixed bridges myself. The Platinum doesn't have pickups you'd use either. The Banshee is much better looking.
