Schecter Guitar Research has announced an addition to its new website, a new monthly feature called “Conquering RIFFtopia” featuring Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow of Conquering Dystopia. The videos will include lessons, guitar play-throughs and reviews of new Schecter models, plus tips and tricks from both guitarists.
With its staggering selection of seven-string, eight-string and baritone guitars, Schecter has become a leading source of alternative instruments that fall between the standard six-string guitar and four-string bass.
Conquering Dystopia, the new project featuring Schecter signature artists Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow, released their self-titled debut album earlier this month. Now you can check out a guitar play-through video of "Ashes of Lesser Men," a track off the new album, below.
Guitarist Jeff Loomis recently visited Schecter to shoot a few videos and discuss the company's new models for 2014. Below, check out the just-posted video where Loomis discusses — in detail — the changes and additions he has made to the new Schecter JL-7.
While eight-string solidbody electric guitars haven’t yet matched the popularity of their seven-string counterparts, a growing number of companies have developed eight-string models since the first mass-produced eight-string guitars hit the market in 2007.
Black Veil Brides have had a hectic year, to say the least. Two thousand thirteen has seen the release of their third full-length album, The Wretched and Divine, as well as their full-length movie, Legion of the Black, a hugely successful Church of the Wild Ones tour and a slot on Warped Tour.
