I pretty much have my mind set on this one, but I'm open to new suggestions. This is at the top of my price range. I play death metal and am going to be doing some rock renditions of some classical/video game/novelty stuff(which is why I wanted the sixth string).
You will not beat the studio 6 for the price. Ever.
Schecter = good. That is all you need to know. I have the Elite-4, played others in the Stiletto line, and even the bottom is a beautiful instrument.
