I won't buy any signature gear simply because I like the artist associated with it, but I will certainly refrain from buying something because I can't stand the artist associated with it... Which is the case with this.

(Not like I'm in the market for a high gainer anyway.)

James Brown is also the guy behind Amptweaker pedals. Pretty brilliant engineer, and there is no reason in my mind to believe the amps will suck.

oh wow i just scrolled down the the pics of the amp o_O

I mean i'm sure they'll sound pretty good (i'm well aware that james brown is an amp guy, not the godfather of soul ) but man that thing doesn't look very nice Won't affect the sound, of course, but... dang.

I'm sure they have their target market pinned and have geared the aesthetics and marketing accordingly.

They are the only band that agrees to make them $$$$. Dont get me wrong I liked A7X when I first heard them and up to bat country, but then it all sounded the same

And I have listened to some bands for 20+yrs and they dont get as old as the A7X albums

Well, apart from being their #1 endorsing artist by far...

A7X's endorsement deals pretty much put Schecter on the map as a br00tl guitar company, every 14-year-old wants to buy a Schecter and be Gates. God knows how many Korean Gates Customs have been sold to date.

Hell, I'll admit that's a big reason I like them. Look at my sig for christ's sake.

It doesn't look like much and the name is terrible, but spec wise they actually look promising!

Holy lack of info, Batman. It's just a collection of buzzwords and hype with no actual information. I smell a rat in a business suit.

Well, it's a strategy, Cath. The details and info are purposely withheld so that curiosity can compound into buzz, which media outlets will hopefully race to act on. With a saturated show like NAMM, companies are fighting for the media coverage.

Oh wow, I didn't click the link before. The one linked on Sneap had a Schecter logo on it and while it was gaudy, I could've gotten over the bold look if it sounded good, this version looks like vomit.
