Schecter Stealth C-7
The Schecter Stealth C-7 is an affordable 7-string guitar from their new Korean-made Stealth 2014 series.
7 String Guitar Creativity
As the name implies, the Stealth series are designed to be discrete in terms of sound, playability and look. Common to all guitars is the use of Schecter's SuperRock II humbucker pickups.
To give the Stealth C-7 its "stealth" look, Schecter designed the arched double cutaway body to be slimmer and lighter. The set neck complements the thinner body with its "Ultra Access" joint, allowing players to reach the higher frets with ease. Its lightweight body and easy access neck joint allows the guitar to be true to its name - letting you play and carry it around with little effort.
At the core of this guitar is a mahogany body carved into a slim double cutaway shape with arched top contour. The body is joined to a "thin C" profile mahogany neck with a 24-fret rosewood fretboard. It has a scale length of 26.5", and 16" fretboard radius, while the Graphtech XL nut comes with a width of 1.889".
Two Schecter Diamond SuperRock-II pickups are used on both the neck and bridge position. The pickups are wired to a three-way selector with a tone knob and a push-pull volume knob for coil tapping.
The Stealth C-7 comes with a Hipshot Hardtail with string through body design custom made for 7 strings. Other features include a 2-way adjustable truss rod, metal knurled knobs, black 1-ply binding on the body and pearloid offset/reverse dot inlays.
Aside from the Stealth C-7, the other two new 6-string models are the Stealth C-1FR (Floyd Rose) and Stealth C-1 (Hardtail bridge). They also come in various finishes - Satin Black (SBK), Satin Red (SRED), Satin White (SWHT), and Satin Silver (SSV) finishes.
The new Scecter Stealth C-7 has a list price of $799, but you can now pre-order the guitar for only $549! Quite affordable for a good looking 7-string if I may say. You can visit Schecter Guitars for more information.
