Sound — 10
This guitar sounds great for its price in my opinion. I'm currently using it through a Crate XT120R Watt amp, and the sound is awesome. I mostly play metal, and solos, this guitar does the job! It gives a rich crunchy metal sound, and I allways take it to band practice, it give barely any feedback when I use it. The EMG pickup is really good, this guitar is mainly for metal, but it could also be used for clean sounds with a Marshall, and it's also good for harmonics and tapping.

Overall Impression — 10
I play a lot of vaeraty of music from Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden to Dethklok, As I Lay Dying. It's really good for solos and rhythm. I like this guitar better than my friend's 600 dollar Jackson Rhoads. I love this guitar, and if it were to get stolen I'd buy one imediatly. I love the emgs, Floyd Rose, the inlays, grover tuners. This guitar is worth way more than it's sold for (at least I think so). This guitar is worth every penny.

I always take this guitar to my band practice and it hasn't messed up once. I've had this guitar over a year now and I still love it since I first got it. I haven't taken this for a gig yet, but I think it will do the job without a backup, the Strat buttons are really good it has only fallen on me once but I moving around so it was my fault. This guitar was meant to last!

I ordered my guitar from Schecter. When it came it was already set up to play! My guitar allways stays in tune, even when I don't have the tunerlocks in! The guitar was a little heavy but I don't really care about that. The pickups where set perfect, the guitar didn't have anything wrong with it. The only thing I messed with is, the floyd rose set up, I'm really picky about that so that was just really me. And the neck is really awesome and smooth.

I Don't really know when this guitar was made, but I got it in fall of 2006. It has a satin black finish, arched basswood body, bolt-on rock maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with extra-jumbo frets. EMG H4 bridge and H4A neck pickups. 25-1/2" scale, Floyd Rose locking tremolo, black hardware, and black pearl bat inlays give it lots of attitude. It also has Grover tuners.

    HEY the bats make the guitar look more evil! I own this bad boy and it ****in kicks ass! Need a better amp though!
