I own this guitar and love it, it gets the job done. The only downside, tho noticing it with a few friends Schecters, is the volume has to be all the way up for it to play right thru a half stack. Otherwise you get that static noise, its an easy fix I heard but Im also kinda lazy at times, ha. Now I read it was made in 2002, is this correct? Also it was made in Korea. What I was really wondering is how many were made? Was it really just a Guitar Center exclusive? Call me weird but I just like knowing everything I can about the equipment I own, thanks for any info.
