    The apocalypse e7 has a thicker neck than most of their other current 7 string offerings.

    I'm guessing people complained about the necks being too thin? Cuz starting with the Apocalypse series, they seemed to go back to the thicker neck profile.

    And then there's guys like me who prefer the thin profile (almost exclusively). Honestly, I say keep making models with both.

    I mean they do. The Banshee and SLS series guitars have the thinner necks. I mean for awhile between 2014 - 2018(?) it looks like they were exclusively making guitars with the thinner neck profile.

    I love the Schecter ultra thin C neck tbqh. I've played Jackson D Shape, Carvin, Ibanez Wizard etc etc and Schecter's neck never got my hand sore like some of the other neck may

    And I'm glad they do. Though besides the recoloring of the SLS Elites, I wasn't a big fan of this year's offerings. Especially cause it felt like the lundgrens were what raised the price, though I'm sure there's other factors at play.

    Prices are just going up period, and it sucks. ESP just released a 7-string version of the Javier LTD sig, and it's $2000.

    A Mach 6 evertune here in Europe costs about 2.1k so yeah, life sucks.

    I'm assuming that's the Aaron Marshall 7?

    @Deadpool_25 you gotta show us pics here since you're seeing Intervals. :lol:

    Every time Misha comes up it's followed by like 4 hate comments, it's more funny than anything.
    I just find it hard to hate on someone who may be pompous but who can actually back their weight up in playing, writing, and selling everything under the sun.
    There's just easier people to hate on who release shit product and say shit things.

    All that aside, I saw Intervals and Aaron played his signatures for most of the show, excluding an Abasi 7 (I believe) he uses for Drop A songs.
    It is certainly a cool guitar to have on stage, with the metallic flake paint job, but otherwise is pretty stripped down.

    So according to comments Aaron made recently these are imports... sort of kills my interest as I have absolutely horrible luck with import Schecters, but still cool

    INTERVALS
    lots of takes here, but this is all speculation. We haven’t released any official and final details regarding any of this yet. What I can tell you, before that all goes out, is that we are starting with an import model, this is not the USA model. My goal was to spec a high quality/high performing model at a realistically attainable price point first, before going full tilt in the USA custom shop. I’ve been road testing these and they’re DIALLED. Wait for the official rollout before casting speculative judgements!

    there were a list of non-negotiable specs I made sure corners weren’t cut on. Starting with the import allowed me to make sure everything we release is high quality and high performance overall!

    Really glad to see these are coming along quick. Honestly hyped about these guitars. I'm not even an Intervals fan, these just remind me of the old import Sunsets just with a more stripped down look.

    It's actually really really cool. It's be interesting to see some variations in the future, like different fretboard, HS config, fixed bridge, other finishes..and under the same philosophy similar specs and different shapes. hope it's a success, could be an interesting turning point for the brand.

    yeah but it's a dogshit strat type trem. I'd rather have no trem than a strat type tbh.
