I was looking at a Schecter 007 Elite for my next guitar and noticed it had a string-through body. Looks sweet, but are there any negative side effects of this?
I was thinking after a long time it may warp the body. Am I totally paroniod...<.< >.>

Dude, if you already have the capo just put it behind the nut and it lowers everything.

i really dont think thats anything you need to worry about. it would take a WHOLE LOT more to warp the body. you should be fine
No, it won't warp the body. You are paranoid.

Deffinitely wnt warp the body.
The only disadvantage would be that there would be more strings being used from the string ferrules to the tuners, but thats only a problem if your using baritone guitars

my only problem is that i save my old strings in case they break and i don't have an extra new one

and its next to impossible to get the curled end back through the body.
A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music.
Put this in your signature if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music.
I have a question for all of you with string-through guitar bodies. Is sustain really improved with the design?

Just curious, don't mean to hi-jack the thread at all.

The only con I can really see (i own a string thru myself) is that it uses more of the string - and since I doubt there are any string thru baritones out there, your totally fine. Ah, and another con - if the string snaps by the tuners, then you prolly wont be able to restring the guitar again with the same string.
