Sound — 10
The style I play is metal (Asking Alexnadria, Blessthefall, and Sirens And Salors) and rock (Foo Fighters, Chevelle, and Scary Kids Scaring Kids). This guitar is perfect for any thing in that style. I use a Line 6 Spider III 15 watt amp, rarely taking it off the insane mode.
Overall Impression — 10
Style: Metal Rock. Playing: Three Years. If I lost this product, I'd be deeply saddened because they aren't selling many of these This Guitar Is AMAZING!
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar will stand the test of time, and then some! Gold Hard ware that is built for stage performance and a pair of Jim Dunlop Strap locks, I would use this guitar alone if I didn't need to use different tuning. The finish is immaculate and I'm sure will last as well.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The factory action was actually perfect to where I play, so I didn't need to tweak too much, I drop the bridge pickup near the thicker strings for a deeper palm mute sound, so that's the only adjusting I needed too do, the only flaw that this guitar has is the fact that it is labeled a 2nd rate by the company, because of a dip in the wood which made a dip in the paint, but I've yet to find it!

This Schecter Artist series is truly worthy of its brand name, I am in love with this thing! It was made in the USA, 2011, and has 24 jumbo frets and a rosewood fretboard, and a white finish laced with ivory, I've found it hard to put down at all! Equpied with Two Seymour Duncans and a 3 way with single coil tap, This guitar is great for metal, rock, even blues!
