A brilliantly natural, unique playing experience
Incredible. That's the only way to describe the Schecter Reaper-7's immense playability. Schecter have used their industry-leading knowledge to craft a hard rock guitar that plays more intuitively and naturally than anything else.
This is achieved using a multiscale design, meaning the strings each have their own, individual scale length. While this maximises the tone of each individual string, it also gives you supreme comfort. Fanned frets are designed to ensure your hand is always in a natural position at all points along the guitar's neck. The result is a playing experience that completely eliminates cramp, and a guitar that feels more at home in your hands than any other instrument you've ever played.
With the Reaper-7 Multiscale, you'll never again struggle with awkward chords that can be difficult to get right. Instead, the ergonomic design will help you to hit every note, and play with complete creative freedom. Concentrate entirely on your music and nothing else.
Unparalleled Schecter sound engineering
Supreme clarity. Schecter know a thing or two about sound quality. They started out making world-renowned pickups long before they started applying their excellent technology to produce their own guitars. The company are experts at getting the absolute best sonic delivery out of their instruments. The Reaper-7 Multiscale is testament to this.
Schecter Diamond Decimator pickups, usually used on models that cost a lot more, are perfect heavy metal guitar pickups for providing lots of gain and attack. They maintain a beautiful clarity of sound and keep feedback to a minimum, meaning the audience only hears exactly what you intend them to. The Cure, Avenged Sevenfold, and Black Veil Brides have all turned to Schecter to provide top-notch hard-rock sound quality. Make sure you do the same.
Shred faster than ever before
Blistering speed. There's nothing holding you back with the Schecter Reaper-7. That's because it's been fitted with an ultra-thin maple and wenge 5-piece neck to give you an exhilarating, pacey playing action. The thin shape means you can move up and down the neck rapidly and with ease, and the wood's slick quality makes the playability incredibly smooth. Channel the legends of metal, and shred and solo with tremendous pace.
Edgy and supremely stylish
A 7-string guitar that looks distinctive and extremely cool. All eyes will be on you if you're holding a Reaper-7. Its sharp aesthetic is perfectly suited to the hard rock genre. A stunning satin inferno burst finish adds an explosive dimension to the overall style. The intricate patterns of the finish will have you gazing at this awesomely attractive instrument for hours. This is a guitar to ensure you get all of the attention when you're on stage. Make your bandmates jealous.
Made for the road
A guitar that's crying out to be taken on tour. Schecter have crafted the ultimate live heavy metal instrument with the Reaper-7 Multiscale. Its powerful sound and immense playability make it a complete package. But it's no use having an instrument that sounds and plays brilliantly if it's not tough enough to withstand life on the road.
That's not something you need to worry about with the Reaper-7. Schecter have ensured that it's extremely strong and durable. Carbon fibre reinforcement rods throughout the 7-string guitar's neck make it more hard-wearing and less susceptible to damage such as bending, snapping, or warping in hot climates. You can be certain that it'll survive even the most demanding touring schedule.
