"Schecter - not just for metal"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
A sweet, sweet rock n roll machine. Schecter has a reputation for metal only but don't let that discourage you from this one. A great feeling neck, solid build. Easy to achieve perfect intonation. Hardware and wiring are great quality. What really stands out to me is the pickups. Usually my first move with guitars is to swap out the pickups, but both bridge and especially the neck pickups on this bad boy are warm and growly. A great guitar!!
