no versus threads *reported*


lol...

I never liked Schecter, wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole. Comes down to what feels good in your hands and what suits your tastes, what sounds the best to you and what you intend to do with it. If you're getting a Gibson get a vintage model.

uhh, depends on which one you get, an 80's explorer for example, will crush a schecter damien, but a hellraiser might be better than a more recent gibson, due to the poor quality control

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

I have an SG and a C-1. Both with TOM bridges, graphite nut and graphite saddles. The both play great. It's a matter of scale length. The scale on the Schecter is longer. After playing the Schecter, the Gibson feels a bit cramped.

It's not all of em but having purchased a new model Gibson within the last 6 months I'm tempted to never buy a new guitar from them again, only a vintage guitar. They need to start hiring people who give a damn about the product they're fashioning to the public. Still wouldn't touch a Schecter with a ten foot pole, of course that Hellraiser 8 has been appealing, I'd do ESP or Ibanez though.

gibsons are double the price, this thread is kinda silly


One of the purposes of buying an instrument (besides the enjoyment of using) is to find something that's going to hold & possibly increase in value. It's an investment, I don't see a Schecter as a good investment.
