The Schecter Hellraiser Hybrid PT-7 ticks every box for the requirements of a modern 7-string guitar. From the wickedly aggressive EMG pickups to the sleek compound radius fretboard playing experience, the PT-7 is packed with features you'd be lucky to find on a custom shop instrument.
Schecter don't pull any punches when it comes to contemporary aesthetics. This is a sleek, sharply-dressed guitar with a mahogany body topped with quilted maple. Even the high/low inlays have a touch of class.
Set into the body is an ultra thin "C" shape maple neck granting unhindered hand movement. On top is a luxurious ebony fretboard which transforms from a natural 12 inch radius at lower frets into an extremely flat 16 inches the higher up you go.
The Hybrid PT-7 isn't just a looker. It's made to last thanks to carbon fibre reinforcement rods running through the neck. Add to that the locking tuners, Graph Tech Tusq nut and pro standard Hipshot bridge, and you have an instrument you can trust to stay in tune and survive any arduous task.
EMG pickups have long been the go-to for cutting, tight metal tone. This is the case here, as the PT-7 is equipped with an EMG 57 in the bridge and EMG 66 in the neck position. The former consists of high output alnico V magnets with an unmistakable PAF-like quality. The 66 expands on a smoother midrange with clarity in the upper register due to its ceramic pole pieces.
