I'm selling my Schecter C7+ with a DiMarzio Blaze in the bridge for $350. It's a good guitar but I find I prefer the neck on my Ibanez (scale lengths are the same; the Ibanez neck is just thinner and flatter). Some really like the Schecters, and they're definitely quality just not so much to my personal taste. The one I'm selling is a fixed bridge though.

In the $1k price range I'd probably go for a Carvin or an Ibanez. I've heard good things about the Loomis Schecter but I'm personally not a big fan of the 707 pickups, not enough bite and presence for my tastes. The Petrucci 7 string is probably the best production 7 around but they're super pricey.

Also I'd look up Mammoth guitars; this guy builds custom guitars and by custom I mean REALLY custom down to the last detail, and he doesn't charge that much considering. I think it's somewhere between 1.5 and 2k.
