"Many Firsts Achieved with This Guitar"

I've owned many guitars over the years and many of them were Schecters. This is the first brand new guitar I've purchased from zZounds and it does not disappoint. It arrived early and was only slightly out of tune as expected. What I did not expect was how quickly I would fall in love with this instrument and now it is my primary guitar for performing and recording. The guitar is surprisingly lightweight for its size. The Fishman pickups are punchy and cut through the mix beautifully and I thoroughly enjoy the push-pull feature for its versatility. I've always been an EMG guy but these have really made me question my pickup choice. Playing on the higher frets caused slight fret buzz but that was quickly fixed with some slight adjustments in the bridge. I was worried that a guitar with a satin finish would slow down my playing but the neck and action are slick and fast. I particularly enjoy the neck because you can really feel the grain of the wood at the back of the neck. If there were any imperfections this would cause problems but there aren't any and it doesn't. My one issue with this guitar and many like it is the strap button near the base of the neck. Typically these are located under or on top of the neck. This one is right behind the neck causing it to scrape against me while playing. If you have large strap buttons or strap locks this could be uncomfortable. I have not had any issues with the electronics or any other defects so I have not had to contact support from Schecter or zZounds, so because of that, they are getting 5 stars. It's also worth noting that the body and neck are perfectly balanced and it does not dip to either side while standing. This is one of the most comfortable guitars I have ever played, it sounds and plays great and I couldn't recommend this any higher.

"Can't put this thing down!"

The only gripe I had about this guitar was that it had a bit of fret buzz. However, the look of the guitar is awesome. I like the reverse headstock on the e1 sls evil twin. The finish on the back of the guitar is awesome. You can feel the grain of the swamp ash body and the multi piece neck. The Fishman pick ups sound amazing. Also, it is very difficult to find this style of guitar with a reverse headstock. I would have preferred an inlay on the first fret also in order to complete the Roman numeral theme. Other than that.....awesome guitar!
