    It looks kinda cool, and has a solid spruce top. I want to get one if it's decent.

    I just saw these for the first time today...did it just come out? Reminds me of the Dean Exhibition Ultra 7 with its looks but this appears to be a normal width..nice cutaway! Kind of disappointing to see its made in China because I really like the Korean Schecters but the solid spruce top does look promising!

    Yeah, I'm not sure when they came out either. I just stumbled across it on their website. I have a super long scale baritone acoustic, but I might want to get this. I like to transpose songs down, because I'm working on my singing, and I'm a baritone, vocally. But I like singing tenor songs.

    Well, Schecter DOES mean abalone in German.

    You'll struggle to find anyone that's played it yet because Schecter announced it over the summer so it's only been around for a month or so iirc Schecter did post a video detailing the features (namely the Fishman preamp) but apart from that there's not any other info/reviews online.

    I'm always glad to see more acoustic 7s, but I've never been a fan of this body shape. I'd love to come across a dreadnought 7.

    This guy's got one :


    The pickups make it sound insanely bright to me, which might be a good thing to give the low B some definition, but that was one reason I didn't want to get an Ibanez AEL207 which had a maple top.
    Now it's interesting to know it's a spruce top, I'd love to hear it unplugged.

    Ah, ok, I wondered how long it had been around. I guess I could have done a little more digging. It’s a little pricy for what I’d use it for, but it is a niche instrument, so maybe I’ll pick one up in a sale.

    Haha, that’s actually the first thing I did after I saw it - logged onto rondomusic. I have a Renaissance 8 string, but I feel like the 7 might be a better bet, in terms of “usefulness” for me. Those things are an amazing value!
