Schechter 007 sound?

I have my eye on the 007, i have been wanting a 7 string for a while now and the necks on the ibanez 7 strings just dont feel comfy to me.
I had ago on a schechter 7 string and i quite liked the neck, i found that the 007 has the same neck, so ...
Its got a mahogany body with a maple cap a maple setneck and a rosewood fretboard, what would the sound be like? Im looking for something that has plenty of clarity and doesnt muddy up and i was wondering whether the rosewood and mahogany would not be a wise idea for that sound
I would go and play one but none of the shops around here stock those

Cheers in advance

I've played a 006 and it sounded quite nice through the Marshall Mode 4 I was playing through. I'm really interested in the 007 myself, but would probably replace the pickups.

is it really THAT bad??? i mean it has a maple cap and a maple neck(not fretboard tho) so i thought that should add some clarity and top end.

what would be the best wood(s) for great clarity then?

In my experience, the mahogany/maple combo gives the guitar a realy mean bite. IMO, it gives a darker sound, not muddy.

not really on my 2027.
no, an alder body plus a maple top on it could be sweet and why not an ebony fretboard too.

The 006 I played was sweet sounding, and that's just with the stock pickups. So the 007 should be sweet too. I just wish they'd fix their custom shop, and someone would give me a bunch of money so I could get a baritone version
