This is an amazing artwork of South Korean artist who was 1st to manufacture this guitar.

Here are 5 of our favorite guitars from Schecter.

It comes with a package of seven string with a Floyd Rose, a Sustainiac switch, a slim neck, a slim body, and many more fantastic features that outshines the Schecter C-7 FR S and make it more demandable among others in the market.

As for the sound, this wild machine is capable of crunching with the best of them and produces a clear and rich sound.

So, let's just go with the flow and have a quick look at the features of the Schecter C-7 FR S.

Features of Schecter C7 FR-S Silver Mountain


Neck of C7 FR S Silver Mountain

Scale length – The Schecter C-7 FR S has a 26.5” (673 mm) scale length.

You need that because it's baritone that low B string needs some tension especially if you down tuned it to A.

Tuners - It has a Grover Rotomatic Tuner with a ratio of 18:1.

Frets – It has a 24 extra Jumbo stainless-steel frets on an ebony fretboard that has a 16” (406 mm) radius so it's nice, flat and fast.

The thickness at the 1st fret is 0.787” (20 mm) and at the 12th fret is 0.866” (22 mm).                                    

Width – Another cool thing about this neck is its width.

It is surprisingly not that wide even though it has seven strings.

In fact it is less than a quarter inch wider than its 6 strings sibling.

This indicates that when you make the transition from 6 to 7, it has a relative breeze.

Neck shape – One more thing that makes the Schecter C-7 FR S’s neck speedy and shred friendly is its thin ‘C’ shape.

Because of its really slim lines it's features pleasant and fast performance and comfortable feel.

Neck material – With the exception of its ebony fingerboard this guitar is 100% mahogany, which means the neck, the body, everything from top to bottom is mahogany.

It has Mahogany 3 pc with Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rods offering a booming mix of warmth & sustain.

Featuring a set through construction which means there is no rebuild therefore, enabling you to get full access to the 24th frets, which is really cool.

Nuts – The locking nut is of Floyd Rose 1500 series tremolo bridge with a width of 1.874” (47.6 mm).

It features a 2-way adjustable truss rod with 5/32” (4 mm) Allen Nut.                                                             


C7 FR Pickup close look

Bridge pickup - In the bridge of the Schecter C-7 FR S you have the Schecter USA Sonic Seducer which is a high output ceramic pickup and has got a nice edge of its tune so it's really cutting especially for modern metal.

The Schecter C-7 features a vintage look of Floyd Rose tremolo bade with an upgradation of 1500 series tremolo bridge that allows you to stay at ease about your tuning stability.

They offer robust dependability, tight response required for precision playing, sensitive vibrato & extreme capability.

Neck pickup - In the neck, we have the Sustainiac pickup.

This is the on/off switch for the Sustainiac allowing your notes to ring indefinitely.

When the switch is turned up this indicates that it is off, which means that the pickup purely acts like a regular neck humbucker.

And when the switch goes down, it creates a magical sound that impresses the players.

As at this point, it ceases to be a pickup and becomes a very clever sustain inducing device.

It does it via crafty use of a driver and electromagnetism.

Modes Of Pickups in Schecter C7 FR-7

It has three pickup modes: Regular Mode, Harmonic Mode and Mix Mode.

Regular Mode – When it is in regular mode, it makes the note you are holding sustain for as long as you decide to hold it.

In this mode the tone will literally go on forever, in fact you can probably hear it picking up the momentum.

It's kind of like spinal tap which will ring continuously for indefinite time.

Harmonic Mode – The next is the harmonic mode, this mode is really cool because it finds a high harmonic, kind of a fifth or a seventh which is similar if you stood in the right place in front of a fully activated Marshall wall.

The harmonic mode features its function where you don't have to stand in front of a light amplifier, they could do it for you really quietly with headphones on even if you are in your bedroom Corral.                  

Mix Mode – Last but certainly not the least is mix mode.  

In this mode, it offers both the regular or fundamental and harmonic essence to your tone.

Therefore, it is kind of the best of both worlds and sounds like great device. 


The Silver Mountain Body Color of C7 Electric Guitar

Colour - The body of the guitar has a colour of silver mountain with a black hardware.

Hardware – The hardware of the Schecter C-7 FR S has an aggressive pitch dark black & attractive silver mountain polish.

How is the Tonal Quality

Not only this but you will be able to experience an aggressive sound with loads of harmonic content, offering you a plenty of sound shaping potential, when you twist the knobs of the amplifier & pedals.

The Schecter C-7 FR S Silver Mountain offers the best of it.

The exceptional Sustainiac pickup at the neck provides a special sustain electrical path which is designed to allow the notes ring for long.
