Sound — 8
This guitar suits my style perfectly, I play mostly metal/hard rock and it fittings just right into that category. The SD designed pick ups are quiet when not played and produced a toneful sound clean or distorted.I am running through a Behringer V tone 100W and it come alive excellently. This guitar can play anything from blues to metal, and if you wanted to classical style music. The push/pull coil taps make playing classic rock a breeze or any clean passages you want to play. Overall the sound is very good for the price I payed.
Overall Impression — 9
This guitar overall is an amazing guitar for any style.It might not have the the best of everything but it sure comes close. I love the push/pull coil taps and the overall feel of the guitar, the neck is surprisingly fast for its appearance. It definitely carries Schester's dedication to great quality guitar building.
Reliability & Durability — 8
This guitar for as long as I have had seems very strong. The strap locks are not loose at all very strong in placement. I got this for a back up guitar but it seems like its going to be a main more than anything now. I've never been on stage yet but I know that this thing will Shine through when I do.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
This guitar has NO flaws to speak of. The finish looks stunning and will not be easily worn down. The action is excellent for playing and the hardware is Grover so you know your getting great quality. MY only complaint however is that it is chrome.
Features — 9
This guitar series was made up to 2009, it features a three piece maple 24 fret neck (24 3/4 in) with Vector style inlays made of abalone and mother of pearl.It is an arched toped flamed maple mahogany body. It is a string through body with set in neck construction which makes access to the higher frets a piece of cake. It comes with a Tone-O-Matic Pro Bridge and grover tuners. It holds tunings very well and the set in neck with string through body allows a great deal of sustain through the guitar. It is equipped with Seymour Duncan designed picks that sound pretty great. It has a three way switch, two volumes, and a tone knob that doubles as a Push/pull coil tap switch, the coil tap is a very useful feature making a already versatile guitar even more versatile. An to make this guitar even more beautiful it come in a body to neck binding of creme.
