Before I got my Schecter 007 Blackjack with an all mahogany body, I did a lot of reading on the potential this wood had for muddiness in a seven. Particularly on jemsite.com, there was a lot of skepticism about it. Most seemed to feel that it would not be suitable for a seven string guitar due to it's overall personality. However, as I read, I noticed that everyone who said that mahogany wouldn't work in a seven had never tried it, and everyone who actually HAD tried it was singing it's praises. Hmmmmm... I can honestly say that there is no problem with my Schecter with an all mahogany body. Granted, there are a few factors which aid in the clarity department, such as the extended 26 1/2" scale and the pickups (Duncan JB in the bridge, pretty bright). But even so, I see no problem with using this wood in a seven string. It is rich and full, but not muddy. I know I'm not the only one who has been concerned about this issue, so I'm starting this thread to shout it from the rooftops. MAHOGANY WORKS GREAT IN A SEVEN STRING!!! Just make sure you have the right pickups, and maybe an extended scale, but I really don't think the scale is necessary. Anyone else use a solid mahogany seven? Like it? Hate it? Mahogany with a maple cap doesn't count, sorry. They may be gorgeous and sound great, but the maple cap brightens things up and that therefore disqualifies it from this discussion.
