Haven't seen any schecters locally, so I can't say much about their quality. ESP on the other hand? Everything I've read leads me to believe they are top notch. I hope so, a used ESP Eclipse II just...

Well someone else has already taken the depreciation hit on the ESP, so you should be able to sell it for what you pay for if you don't gel with it.

Buy/Play whatever guitars you like, period. I had been on a huge Ibanez kick, but in the last year I've bought 2 MusicMan guitars and have an ESP Eclipse arriving today.

Check out the new Tannoy Reveal powered monitors. Better quality than KRKs and at a lower price (5" & 6" at least).

Surprised nobody has mentioned used Ibanez Prestige. Should be easy to find a minty RGA121 for under $800.

I miss the joke tag somewhere? Or the "I stopped taking my meds" tag. :shrug:

I used to just disconnect my 6505 212 speakers and run into a mesa 4x12, can't you just do the same thing with the 112 combo?

When doing a tuning or string gauge change, look at doing a full setup. If you went from 9s to 10s, it's probably a simple truss rod adjustment.
