did you get this without a case?
Looks pretty cool, I kind of miss my old Loomis once in a while.
its definately thicker than the Wizard necks...
Yeah this is why I always opt to have a guitar shipped in a hard case if the option is available. I've been lucky, but the UPS horror stories worry me.
I cant even tell where the damage was man, good job fixing it up
You know, I wasn't too impressed when it was first announced these were going to be coming out in flat black, but in person I dig it a lot more than McDonalds color scheme of the red one.
Congrats man, and sorry about UPS. Why anyone still uses them when USPS is cheaper and typically less accident prone is beyond me.
It was in a hard case, that's the annoying part. It's obviously been thrown around. This is the first time I've had any UPS damage and it's not even that big of a deal so I'm still thanking my lucky stars, it could have been way worse than what it was.
Hai Nickeh! Thanks buddy!
The difference is this got here in about 4 days from the states, USPS would have been 2 weeks.
I was hoping to have it for the show we played on saturday night but alas it was just a little bit late. The real crappy part is that we just went on hiatus to find a new drummer and bass player so she won't be seeing any live use for a little while.
Sucks about the damage but holy fuck you did an awesome job repairing it. Can't see shit. Must not have cracked the wood around it eh?
It did, but only slightly.
How the fuck did they manage that through a hard case?!?! Ah well, shit happens I suppose, looks like you did a great job on the repair.
How's the sound? I'd guess that the Maple and Ash would give an overall brighter tone than a lot of other 7's... is this the case do you think?
Awesome! I want one of these, I dig them a lot more then the red
It is quite bright, but it's also very thick very "big" sounding. Ash as a tonewood is has less pronounced mid range and more highs and lows. The rounder tone of the 707s balances well with it but I still had to back off on the 6600 slider on my Mark V.
Thanks to everyone for the rep and for the compliments on my repair skills. I nearly failed wood work in high school but a good clamp and a little PVA goes a long way.
Schecter sales have pretty much been the toilet for me for a long time..
Glad you got it fixed Nic...
I'm sorry to hear that Nick.
How are the hills going these days?
Sick guitar dude congrats.
I almost waited to order the satin black also, but ended up going crimson. I like the visable grain with that version.
enjoy your (3rd) Loomis!
