"Great Guitar For The Price"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
For my needs, this guitar more than satisfactory. If you are a professional musician, surely you'd want something of a bit higher quality, but for jamming with friends, writing and recording, I am perfectly satisfied with this one. I wouldn't replace this one, and I would only buy a new one if I had an opportunity to buy something truly amazing.
My big complaint is against the Schecter stock pickups. They sound muddy as hell and the sustain is pretty terrible. However, I switched out the bridge pickup (I only use the bridge) with a Seymour Duncan Invader-7, and now this guitar sounds great.
As I said before, the stock pickups are pretty bad. Aside from that, most of the hardware is great. The tuners, bridge, and knobs (volume and tone/coil-tap) are perfect, though the pickup switch is in a really inconvenient location, especially considering it flips vertically. It was no problem just turning it so it switches horizontally, though. The nut is also a bit small, not leaving a whole lot of room to mess around with the action on the neck end.
Ease of Use
If you can play guitar, you can play this. I hadn't ever touched a 7-string before buying this, but it's easy enough just getting used to that extra string. I'm not a huge fan of the finish on the neck, though. When you've been playing awhile and you go to mute the A string with your thumb, your hand will stick to it pretty easily.
After purchasing this guitar, I noticed that it was made in Indonesia. I wasn't too thrilled about that, but aside from the previously mentioned flaws, and minor wear underneath the finish on back, I have no complaints about the actual quality. It actually feels very solid.
Aside from the pickups, I believe this guitar to be well worth the price.
I have not had to deal with anyone from support.
The Wow Factor
This is really a beautiful guitar. Hell, that's the real reason I bought it in the first place.
