im turning 14 later and ive played guitar for a couple of months and everybody said i was doing good so my dad desided to buy an electric for me. We went inside the store and i was drawn immidiately to a guitar with a distinct black-cherry burst. i picked it out and tried it and long story short its now in my bedroom. I play anything like GnR AC/DC Santana as long as it has classic rock im playing it. If you want a guitar I can guarentee you that youll be more pleased with it than a gibson or fender. it sounds great for anything.
I got it at a music store that was going out of buissness. it was cheap, beautiful, sounds, good, i highly prefer this guitar.
I like the style for one. easy string change, beautiful finish, the mother of pearl inlays, thefret inlays, the tuners even. now the sound. it can have a sweet clear tone,or a crunchy tone or a beautiful distortion tone. do not attempt to put a tremolo arm on this guitar!
nothin much. Id like to put zakk wylde emg's in but thats not because of the seymours being bad they're great too!
quality is great.
bottom line is you cant get a better guitar and i totally agree with the last poster and more.
I got a $100 gift certificate for Xmas to our local Guitar Center. I wasn't planning on buying a guitar--I needed some strings, couple guitar stands, maybe a mike--you know, boring stuff. While I was there, I started checking out the guitars and made the "mistake" of playing the Schecter. I kept going back to it--the warm tone, the playability, and the fact it was so light compared to other guitars I played, just called to me--it was like it was asking to come home with me. I put it on layaway and 3 months later (and $625 less) I was playing this beautiful guitar on my Marshall MG 30DFX amp. WORTH EVERY FREAKIN' PENNY.
The 2 humbuckers make for a warm, smooth tone that nonetheless can put out crunch with authority. The music I play ranges from Neil Young to Alice in Chains, and everything sounds good on this guitar! Even my scales have improved . I was mainly drawn to the guitar because of the unusual method of stringing the thing--my previous electric guitar has a Floyd Rose bridge that was very time-consuming and annoying to tune, not to mention re-stringing. This looks like it'll be a snap to restring. It was also easily the prettiest guitar in the store, with abalone inlay all around the edge, the mother-of-pearl crosses in the neck, the gorgeous 'translucent black cherry' finish, and pewter chrome hardware.
The only thing I don't like about my guitar is the fact I don't have enough time to play it.
I'm not a very experienced guitar player, but comparison with other guitars made me think this is a quality instrument. There's no crooked seams, the finish is gorgeous, nothing's out of place, the neck is perfect, etc. etc. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the quality of the strings; the guitar had been hanging for awhile and they had lost their brightness. But I'm planning on replacing them with Elixirs pretty soon, so this is irrelevant.
I would recommend this guitar to anyone who's looking for a guitar that sounds as good as it looks. How come there aren't any other reviews about this guitar?
Purchased in Los Angeles in 2005, the guitar is top notch! Everything is very neat, we see immediately that this is a quality instrument!
Handle very nice, giving a rare ease of playing, 22 frets and handle design allows easy access to acute and comfort both above and below the handle.
Great sound from the outset, and that all the amps on which I have connected!
thanks to its two microphones and manufacture, the guitar offers a wide range of sonoritées to play a lot of very different styles of music (rock, blues, metal, etc.).
I played with this guitar on many different amps and I must say that this guitar sounds right away.
A great guitar, I tried a lot of different models and I must say that this guitar really has a particular sound which is nice and for very many styles of music!
Frankly, guitar TOP!
If the choice was a redo, I do it again immediately!
