so i know schecter is made by esp but. i hear alot of different things of whcih guitar is better quality/ my dad owns 2 schecters and says they are better than his $1000 gibson. btw he only paid about 500 for his one schecter and the ohter was 700. but hasnt played an esp he is to stuck on schecter. now when i ask ppl i hear that esp is good then i hear schecter is better. its like a back and forth thing. i nwat your guys opinion. which do you think its better. let me give an example if i spend 600 on an esp and 600 on a schecter which one will be better in your opinion

The 600 dollar Schecter would be better, I think, cause ESP's LTD models, the really good ones, cost abou 800+-.

Wish I had a Dad who had guitars...wish I had a Dad that actually payed any sought of attention to my search for a Schecter...

I think the Schecter will be better. It will be more interesting. Not necessarily better qaulity or build, but in that price range, its hit and miss whether you find an awesome guitar or not. There about the same in fact. But I would prefer to buy a Schecter for sure.

LTD guitars are the same as Schecter guitars. All they do is change the headstock around. The guitars are made in the same factory.

Wrong. There used to be a question on Schecter's FAQ on their website..

Q: Is Schecter affilliated with ESP?

A: F*** no!!!!

Tis true...I seen it with both eyes...

Most people who prefer Schecters over ESPs are Schecter fanboys who've never even played an ESP.
#14
Most of those are made in the same plants though. I'd skip them all. Those Korean factory guitars will never be as good in quality or QC as a MIJ that was built in a shop.

Schecter > ESP's IMO

The Hellraiser series is absolutely beautiful.

I'm just gonna say it...

I think Schecters are the ugliest guitars I've ever seen. Big broad neck, ugly body shape, ugly ass finish. Can't help you much on the sound part though...

I'd go with ESP

Schecters and ESPs are very different feeling. Just buy whichever one you want.

This man speaks the truth
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

Yes, they are. I love the finish that the BCH ones come with, and the new white ones as well.
