Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wish I could have bought this guitar 20 years ago!"
Overall: This model would have saved me thousands of $$ by not having to buy other name brands / similar models only to be disappointed with quality, workmanship, design and manufacturer support(if needed). I was a little apprehensive about the passive pickups according to the description on ZZounds website of the sound characteristics being "vintage-style for cleans, light overdrive and crunchy distortion." I prefer a HOT pickup that I can tame if necessary. These DID NOT disappoint!! Had to turn down the feedback & reverb on my amp. They are scorchers. FINALLY a beautifully crafted all around guitar with the Volume knob a comfortable distance from the bridge pickup(not so close that you turn the volume down while playing or beating your small finger on it...like my previous IBANEZ RG470 & Jackson. Simple, well placed controls. Only issue was bridge pickup support shifted (likely during shipping) and pickup was canted to the rear. Not a difficult fix, but a little time consuming...not a big overall. Neck profile, feel and set-up right out of the box were like I had it custom made. I'm still amazed and giddy about this guitar and plan to add another when zZounds gets the last "Pay as You Play" installment. I sent an email to Schecter Tech Support regarding the pickup and other general questions re: schematics, etc...One of their Techs replied to my email and ALSO CALLED me before close of business the same day at the number I included in my correspondence. He politely and patiently answered all of my questions with confidence and professionalism. SCORE: Schecter +1 very happy and impressed customer ZZounds +1 loyal and very satisfied customer

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
