"Great guitar if you want to Shred! The guitar is a bit on the expensive side and can be cumbersome but I would not trade mine fo"
I plan on holding on to this one for a long long time I have owned it for awhile now and trust me this guitar is spoiled and I keep it pristine as I love it. A year now and its still in the tuneing I started it in.

This guitar is a beast first and foremost. I love the deep, rich, growly sound it produces. If you are playing metal this is litterally one of the top 3 guitars on the market right now (would give the Xyphos700 an edge). It sounds great whether shreding or just pounding out solos. With the Floyd Rose it has great sustain as well as staying in tune which is a wonderful feature. I would have to say the sound is probably one of the best features.

This guitar litterally has some of the best passive pickups out there in the invaders and you are going to want a case whether it comes with one or not as with the design I have noticed that some people have chiped and scratched it and when your spending this kind of money you want to protect your investment.

Ease of Use
It is very easy to get a great sound out of this guitar straight out of the box. The only reason I give it an 8 is that this guitar is heavy and can be cumbersom so it is not a great fit for everyone.

It is a Schecter product and they have a great waranty as well so there is no question that this guitar is made amazingly read more well.

Its a wonderful guitar do not get me wrong, but given that it is 200 to 300 dollars more expensive than the Xyphos 700 I would say its worth it to me but you can get more bang for your buck on other equally awesome guitars.

Manufacturer Support
Owning an Epionage has taught me one thing and that is buy Schecter or Ibanez as they both have the best customer support and make your experience easy and time saving, no way to be dissapointed here.

The Wow Factor
This product looks amazing and just screams metal as soon as you pull it out on stage. No question one of the best looking guitars I have owned.
