Schecter C-7 FR-S Apocalypse: Highest Rated Standard-Scale 7-String Electric Guitar Under $2000 - 2021.07

Gearank Recommended

The C-7 FR-S Apocalypse first appeared on our recommended list for Standard Scale 7-String Electric Guitars in July 2021 and it remains there today.


Although the first production 7 string, the Ibanez Universe, had a floating bridge, it is quite uncommon to see one on a 7 string these days.

The Schecter C-7 FR-S Apocalypse not only brings back the floating bridge to the extended range instrument, it is paired with a Sustainiac pickup in the neck position - these features have proved popular with many lead guitarists.

This active electronic pickup give infinite sustain to your notes.

Despite being an extended range guitar built for low and heavy riffs, the C-7 FR-S Apocalypse is at home with soaring, sustaining lead lines.

With a solid Floyd Rose 1500 Series Tremolo, and neck-through construction, the C-7 FR-S Apocalypse is built for sustaining leads.

No need to worry about sustain issues with the floating bridge as the Sustainiac pickup ensures you're going to be able to sustain your leads for as long as you like.
