So yes folks, here it is...after waiting almost 5 months from placing the order, I have finally received a guitar I was coveting for a long time that was recently re-issued by Schecter...and here she is





So for a quick review, the guitar plays VERY well. The reissue in the solo (les paul) style body is much nicer than the old S-1 (SG) style Spitfire from 2006, but they changed the one thing I would have added anyways, and that is EMG 81/85 pickups, which are in my other two main guitars; A 2007 C-1 Hellraiser and a 2005 Godin LG EMG. Nice considering it's a set neck, not a bolt on, and the distressed hardware looks very nice (though if something gets messed over the years, might be hard to find a nice matching replacement). Was disappointed this one only has 15:1 tuners rather than 18:1 grovers like my hellraiser, or 19:1 locking Schecter ones like the Solo Custom we have at the store, but what can you do. The finish is spectacular for a print, and they really took their time with the inlays as you can see. Well worth the money, and not just another nice piece to add to my militaria collection as you can tell

Cheers UG!!!

Yeah both the spitfire and the 35th anniversary were in my 2011 gear as "wants". I got this one because it was cheap ($750). The 35th is going to be around a $1500 list, so I can guess it'll be about $1149 sale price, but with only 35 worldwide....it'll be worth it, but I might have to sell something else in my fleet first to pay for it. It's still on backorder at present, but once it comes in I'll have to make a decision because it probably won't sit on the wall for long.

As I mentioned before it's not very expensive, for me it was about $750. The list on this guitar is only $939 CDN, so really cheap for all mahogany set neck/EMG 81-85/custom inlay and graphics
