    SRLY? That's great. I've seen teasers of a 24-fret Floyd'd 7-string Superstrat, but this is the first I've heard mention of Schecter thinking of making a Strat-Strat, unless I'm misunderstanding you.

    They're not Laces, I forget what Fender calls them but yeah if there's any hum it's beyond the range of my hearing.

    Several manufacturers have figured out how to use humcanceling dummy coils that are too small to really impact the tone of the active coil.

    Oakland axe factory had the ss7 and ss8. They were strat bodies and one 8 had all single coils (fanned frets too)

    That headstock... ehr... I remember something about a huge Jackson 7 in-line headstock... but this... oh my... probably won't fin in my baritone case where I could easily fit one of those Jackson...

    But kinda like the gold strat scheme.

    I love ESP strats. I have always loved the looks of the Alex Wade 7 string, this looks like a winner. Single coils for 8 strings rule!!!

    i don't mind the inlays, they're not too invasive visually. i also kinda like his signature, which i think would be really killer if there were some tweaks which would reduce the gawd factor, but this is quite classy as is

    Mostly because of the perspective I think, but that headstock is comically large.
