that sounds good, the one im looking at is the hellraiser FR which are impossible to find where i live in brisbane australia which is qhy im so inquisitive as to how they play and sound because i wont be able to try one out. If i do get it ill be getting it off ebay where a guy regularly sells them for 650US and 150US$ postage to australia. which converts to about 1100AUD and over here the standard price (if you can find one) is about 1800 so yeh its the best value for me. Does anyone have any sound clips or anything?

have fun paying your taxes off memory i think its 15% mate so it should cost less than 1500aud which is like the cost of a ibanez rg1570 prestige

they are amazing both sound wise and looks wise. It is solid as a rock and the access to the upper frets is the best ive ever seen. you cant go wrong with it
Go get your shovel.

The only complaints they seem to get is that the neck feels very odd. However, you should be able to get used to it after a little bit of play time.

Is postage included in the taxable amount because ifnot the guitar will be under 1000AUD and the customs site said all items under 1000 are not taxed? So i dunno maybe. Do u find the ibanez better than the schecter and wats the deal with the neck?

Well u've thought well! I see schecter better than Ibanez personally, I believe schecter is more versatile

its the total cost so i think postage is included idk might be best to check with australia post also remember that your not getting any warranty so if something happens to the schecter the seller isnt liable
