I guess he removed the neck to adjust the truss rod at the heel, and then he didn't know how to keep it into place while he tightened the screws, we'll probably never know

some time ago another UGer had a similar problem and it turned out to be the locking nut, as far as I remember it wasn't secured on the neck tight enough

lovely finish! though mounting the pickup upside down shouldn't actually reverse the phase, you've got to flip the magnet or reverse the wires :shrug:

I'd say get the V, there's no guitar too much odd-looking to be played, there are just guitarists with not enough personality to play them :haha: and anyway the V has been played by many guitarists...

The one with the bigger inlays is listed in the Schecter's 2012 catalog so it must be the older version, the other is the current one. Personally I like the discontinued one better :shrug:
