Schecter vs Ibanez (vs ???)
I need some help, deciding what to do.
My band is having lots of shows right now, so it's time for a backup for my RG7 and I already filtered the guitars I'm actually interested in:
Right now, the list consists of the Ibanez S7320, Schecter C-7 Hellraiser and the C-7 Blackjack ATX.
Actually I planned on getting an Agile Interceptor Pro but I don't have the time to wait until they're available again, + Kurt told me they're going to raise the price. (maybe some other day.. *sigh*)
Here are the requirements:
No trem. if possible or at least a good one.
Tone knob, please! (No Apex, K7 etc...)
Financial limit is ~700€, that's roughly 1000$ but keep in mind that it's a little more expensive over here.
Since I'm the lead guitarist, it should have shred-potential. It's got at least 22 frets and I swear, I'm gonna use them!
I prefer a rather low-mid'ish sound with some "chunk chunk", barely any scooping.
Well, that's it I guess. So far I haven't played any Schecter 7-strings yet, just Ibanez and ESP, so I'm a bit worried about the neck profile. (I'm going to test them before buying though). Did I miss any important guitars (available in EU) I should try out? What would you recommend?
