    I've had the Ibanez 7's for a few years now and only recently bought the Hellraiser. Ibanez 7's are ok....I do prefer the black and green one to be honest, but I've been using the Hellraiser for everything now and do prefer it to the Universes (at the moment at any rate!). :headbang:

    Really now?

    See, I've been thinking of purchasing a hellraiser, but I typically do not like the way that schecters play. How's the action/neck feel in comparison to your ibanez's? A little thicker/tighter?

    Universe necks have a quite a shallow profile. The Hellraiser neck is thicker (kind of similar to a Les Paul in feel) and has a longer scale length (the strings will feel a little tighter) but I find it a comfortable guitar to play. Good p-ups (707's), hardware and good build quality. They're also considerably cheaper than Ibanez 7's too!

    Yeah, with all the money you're spending on one of those Ibanez guitars as far as set up and decent electronics it's pretty easy to see why you hear them called Ibenhad's every other place you go. A friend of mine is a bit too loyal to Ibanez and wound up getting an RG321 after his main guitar got stolen - I would have at least tried to make one of those play and sound good, but I'd be changing the tuners, the nut, the fretwork, the neck joint, the bridge, the pickups, the wiring... hell, probably the neck and body as well. The same amount he spent got me a much better Dean and a new bridge pickup for it, and it slays. It's only a matter of time before some company does to Ibanez what Ibanez did to Fender and Gibson (stealing business away with much better product, leaving them names but much weaker reputations).

    I've really been thinking seriously about buying one just given the price, and the building materials and hardware it comes with (mahogany, neck thru, gotoh, 707's) but I've played very few schecters that have been to my liking. In fact, I played a C-1 and I didn't like it at all, but I felt that with some bridge tweaking and hotter pickups it would have been a much better guitar. I think I may just have to test out Guitar Center's 30 day return policy on this one :lol: For me, I love higher end Ibanez's, and mid to high range ESP, so Schecter may just make em a bit thick for me. We'll see I guess - just gotta get my hands on one!

    I've found the 7-string Schecter necks much more to my liking than the 6-string varieties. The 6 string ones feel like my old Epiphone SG, the 7-string one just feels nice. The thickness is great to match the width of the neck.
