Well I've been looking and test playing this guitar for three months and then I got a student loan (uh-oh) and went out and did something stupid like buying it at guitar center for 750 after case and acsessories.
Oh man, where to start? The beautiful design catches anybodys eye and brings lots of compliments. It has a good design for easy and quick playing, carries out notes with great sustain, and screams on solos and crunches on rythym.
Nothing at all.
Every detail on this guitar has been payed close attention to from the designers at Schecter, it has a good solid body and is worth alot more then what i payed for it. They did an excellent job with this guitar.
This guitar is definately worth the buck, but be ready because you wont ever want to play anything else after this work of art.
I have been playing for around 16 years and this is the smoothest neck my fingers have ever wrapped around. The action is nice and low with no fret buzz. The sustain brings a tear to my eye! Every note is heard and will ring as long as you want it to without feedback.
The looks are absolutely stunning. Not one flaw with the paint or neck. No sharp ridges at the frets. The vine of life inlay is beautiful and accents the guitar extremely nice. Everything about this guitar is great. Absolutely top notch craftsmanship. Just as good as any American made guitar on the market.
Nothing...Well I wishI could have conned the store out of a free case!
Absoulutely top notch. This is a high quality instrument at an entry level price.
More compliments on this guitars looks than with my Gibson LP or Charvel San Dimas.
An absolute must buy! I am extremely happy with this instrument. It is now my first ax of choice! Buy this guitar!
This was purchased as a gift (cool huh?) at Drum City Guitarland out of Wheat Ridge, Colorado. They beat anyones prices on Schecter and are great guys to deal with. I had been scoping them out when they hit the market originally and talked my fiance into buing it as a bithday present. She paid around $650.
I absolutely love evrything about it. The playability, sustain, tonal qualities and visual aspects. I have a '91 Gibson Firebird V, a '91 Mockingbird, an old strat well you get the idea...but I use the Schecter almost exclusively.
The only issue I had was with the pots. For some reason Schecter installs linear pots (or at least they did 2 years ago). I had the 3 pots (and resistors) replaced with 500k audio's for around $40.
Its definitely solid, mahogany body/maple top, neck-thru with grovers. You really have to play it. The Duncans' are extremely responsive to the touch, and can overdrive depending on how hard you pick.
Ive played for 30 years. This is the nicest axe Ive come across, and Ill put it up against any of them out there.
