Introducing the newest horseman of the Apocalypse! Like all Schecter guitars, this beast of a guitar has all the killer appointments that you'd expect from a shredding machine! Equipped with Schecter's Apocalypse-VI pickup set, you'll be turning heads with aggressive and combative tones and screaming leads, and with 24 fret access and an ultra-fast Maple and Padauk neck, this guitar was built for speed and for comfort! The ebony fretboard is adorned with Roman Numeral inlays adding to the dark vibe of this menacing looking machine, and with its beautiful Red Reign finish, you'll be sure to steal the spotlight.

The neck has been shaped to a Thin "C" profile for high velocity soloing and the deep insert set neck construction allows super easy access to the upper frets.

While being able to deliver a crushing mid-range, but maintain a tight, focused, and articulate response, the Apocalypse pickups are meant to shake the ground you stand on.

Adding further tonal versatility is a push-pull coil split on the master tone control, while rounding out the read more Satin Black hardware are the TonePros locking bridge and tailpiece, Graph Tech BlackTusq nut, and Schecter locking tuners which combine to deliver rock-solid sonic coupling and tuning stability that can withstand anything you can dish out.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
While waiting for this model, I purchased a FR-7 Hellraiser from zZounds. This E-7 Apocalypse is the perfect combination to it. The differences between the tremolo, fixed bridge and pickups between these two axes give me all I ever need, yet the neck radius’ lengths, extra jumbo stainless frets and setup/action are so similar! And the Black Cherry Hellraiser is a perfect match with the Red Reign Apocalypse. Best of both worlds.

The sound quality is great! I was pleasantly surprised at the bright highs these pups put out, and the mid and low end bark fits this axe beautifully! The action is fast and set low, which works great with the xtra jumbo stainless frets, neck radius and shape. Advice… If you’re a heavy fretter, you’ll pull your note sharp. Jumbo frets need a light touch or directly on the fret.

This E7 is very comfortable to play, sculpted to fit where needed, and the swamp ash body is awesome. The electronics, bridge, and tuners are all high quality.

Ease of Use
This Apocalypse is played through a Boss Katana MKII. The majority of my amp settings are rock/metal.

This is a well built affordable guitar.

I think overall, Schecter guitars are a very good buy.

The Wow Factor
When I decided to invest in a seven string, I saw the E-7 Apocalypse and really liked the looks. They’ve been back ordered for awhile so I purchased a Hellraiser FR-7 from zZounds. I checked the Website and there was an Apocalypse in stock, so I called zZounds, and within three days my E-7 was here!
