Painstakingly crafted and spec'd to excel in the realm of high-output metal, the C-7 Multiscale Silver Mountain is a formidable guitar regardless of genre. The mahogany body, chosen for its tried-and-true tonal pedigree, paired with a 3-piece carbon-fiber-reinforced Thin-C mahogany neck results in serious sustain with powerful low-end response, while the 16" radius, 27"-25.5" scale-length ebony fretboard is embedded with 24 X-Jumbo Stainless Steel frets to serve as a stalwart foundation for even the most chaotic fretwork.

"Decent Sound, Horrible QC"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was looking to try out a multiscale guitar, and the C-7 MS looked like a decent option for the price. In terms of sound and playability, it absolutely is. The instrument is resonant, the fret work is good, and the shape of the neck is comfortable. Unfortunately it took me about two months (playing the instrument infrequently and keeping it in a case) to notice the awful state of the fretboard. During a string change, I went to clean the fretboard and noticed every single inlay was cracked, sometimes in multiple places. To make it worse, many of the cracks have started to split onto the fretboard itself. Areas near the binding are off-color and appear to be dried out or possibly too much glue was used, and the bottom of the fretboard has literal chunks of wood missing from it. The nut for some reason has pick-thick gaps between the bottom of the nut and the guitar, like the nut slot was cut wrong and they just forced it in with glue. I've watched a few youtube videos featuring this instrument, and it looks like these bizarre QC issues are extremely common. Now, if this was a $400 instrument it'd be one thing, but it's not (even then it really wouldn't be acceptable). An instrument of this price should not have this many quality issues. It really is a shame, because as I mentioned earlier, the instrument does sound pretty good and plays nicely. For now at least I would advise anyone to stay away from this guitar, and possibly Schecter as a whole, until they get their QC read more straightened out. I only wish I had noticed these issues when I was within the 45-day return window.
