"Great Guitar at a Great Price"

This is a great guitar. I'm a relative beginner so I wanted something inexpensive from a manufacturer with a good reputation and this more than delivered. It's comfortable to play on, easy to tweak to your preferences (I lowered the action just a little bit but that was purely down to my preference and not a knock on the factory setup which was really good), and a really awesome, simple, straightforward guitar. There aren't really any bells or whistles to speak of but the guitar more than makes up for it in playability and has some really thoughtful cutaways that make upper fret access a breeze. It's a comfortable weight too so if you're like me and have a terrible back, it's no problem to play standing up. The stock pickups sound good for what they are. I might upgrade them in the future but I'm in no hurry. Finally, I'm a sucker for blue guitars and so I got the Satin Metallic Light Blue and it looks even better than in the pictures!
The pickups seem pretty hot so they take distortion well but don't provide the most crisp cleans. Backing off of the volume helps with this though.
The cutaways are really well thought out and make this very easy to play on. Additionally, the neck joint is very good. The frets were polished up nicely and there were no sharp edges.
Ease of Use
This guitar is as simple as it gets. Just tune it up and it's ready to go out of the box.
Everything feels solid and well made. Even the stock tuners felt pretty good, given the price point. My only complaint is that the toggle switch feels a little loose.
I'm happy with this guitar at the price point. Given it's relative lack of features, I feel that the price is appropriate and that I've gotten good value for my money.
Schecter was very easy to reach and was responsive.
The Wow Factor
The color is awesome and I can't look at it without wanting to pick it up and play which, for a relative newbie like me, is definitely a good thing.
