Seven Strings of Killer Tone from the Prog-Metal Master!

The master of seven-string axes has joined forces with Schecter to bring you the Jeff Loomis JL7FR electric guitar. This battle-of-an-axe boasts seven strings of ear-piercing metal tone, captured and projected through EMG 57-7H bridge and EMG 66-7H neck humbuckers, and a resonating swamp ash body with a deep cutaway for the ultimate in comfortable playability. A maple/walnut multi-ply neck with a bright-sounding maple fingerboard features 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets that will bring your shredding speed up to even higher levels. This baby's flexible and dependable Floyd Rose 1000 series bridge will give you more tonal playing room than you'll know what to do with. Shoulder this guitar and let your notes soar to awesome heights -- and resounding lows.

Resonant Swamp Ash Body

Swamp ash comes from the lower end of southern-grown wetland trees. It's a great tonewood because it places a solid emphasis on the higher frequencies of your playing, while keeping an even-keeled focus on your mids and lows. And you'll never be short of sustain, because swamp ash holds your notes while delivering a consistent supply of resonance. This baby's deep cutaway gives you plenty of access to those higher frets, and an arched top contour gives off a sleek modern look.

Maple/Walnut Multi-ply Neck

The neck on your Schecter Jeff Loomis JL7FR electric axe is comprised of a combination of maple and walnut. Maple is an excellent neck tonewood -- it brings a pleasant rounded brightness to each note. Walnut is a somewhat dense wood and tends to exhibit similar characteristics to mahogany, in that it yields an emphasis on the middle and lower frequencies. This appendage is cut into a comfortable ultra-thin C shape that allows all seven strings to rest comfortably in your hand. You fingers will glide effortlessly across all 24 X-jumbo stainless steel frets -- each boasting an undeniably addicting action and unbeatable playability.

EMG 57-7H Bridge and 66-7H Neck Humbucking Pickups

Capturing each note and forging a signal of soul-shattering rock are your EMG 57-7H and 66-7H humbuckers. The 57-7H bridge pickup keeps things tight and aggressive, so every single note will slice through the air. Your EMG 66-7H neck humbucker fuels your output with a thick wall of tone full of presence and depth, allowing each of your JL7FR's seven strings to find clear and consistent articulation. Both pickups feature brushed black chrome covers that keep dust, dirt, and sweat at bay. They also give off a cool and sleek metallic look.

Secure Hardware and Cool Looks

Anchoring your strings down is a super flexible Floyd Rose 1000 series bridge. This awesome setup allows you to dive your notes as low as possible or bend them even higher without losing any intonation. The maple fingerboard on this axe also features cool metal crosses inlays to give off a somewhat sinister feel.

Tear off some otherworldy tones with this Loomis-approved seven-string beast!

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awsome Seven String Guitar!"
Sound: The EMGs are very articulate and sound very tight and punchy without sounding muddy at all. They sound really aggressive when distorted and really warm and natural sounding when clean. Feature: nothing really just a slightly better placing of the volume knob and pickup selector. Ease of Use: really easy to use don't really feel a difference between 26.5 and 25.5 scale length. I did have to tune it up a little using the fine tuners only though but no biggy Quality: Good quality there was a small dark spot one the back of the neck inside the grain of the wood but nothing I cant live with. The Floyd is pretty good considering its a 1000 series it feels much like an original in fact you probably couldn't tell the difference Value: I actually got a price match on this guitar which came out to a really great deal so yeah its worth every penny. Manufacturer Support: Didn't have to deal with them yet. The Wow Factor: This guitar is amazing for metal and shredding very fast sweet sounding and just plain cool because Jeff Loomis uses this exact same model to play with. Overall: Great guitar plays excellent very light in weight and offers awesome tone. Which is thanks to its swamp ash body maple neck/fretboard and EMG 57/66 that offer plenty of growl without sounding muddy at all. It did came a little out of tune but nothing the fine tuners couldn't fix. But I would definitely recommend this guitar to any one who is looking for a seven string guitar.
