"Incredible value"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

I can hardly believe this guitar for the price they charge. Spoke wheel truss adjustment, ebony fretboard,sweet EMG pickups with the bridge pup direct mount to the body !!! Because of EMG plug in design, it would take mere minutes to swap out the bridge pup. I've already plugged my 81 in five or six minutes. The "hot rod" Floyd rose had a brass sustain block which makes a huge difference. If that wasn't enough the thing came out of the box in tune and intonated. You could not go wrong with this beautiful Schecter

"I LOVE this guitar!!!"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've had this beauty for about a month now and I absolutely love it! I wanted a "tele" style body guitar that also looked like it could shred. The pictures do no justice for this guitar. It is an absolute beauty! Very classy looking! I have been reading reviews about the pickups being "muddy" and I must say that I do not believe this to be true at all. As with any guitar I purchase with EMG's I change the batteries before anything. I bought this guitar for hard rock and classic rock for the most part but it can for sure throw some metal out there as well. I also find that the neck pickup has a good blues and jazz tone to it as well. I find the clean tones to be great as well. Let's get to the shipping aspect of this review: upon opening this guitar I found it to be set up perfectly for me. I have found no problems as of yet. The only thing I find "awkward" (and it may be right) is that the volume knobs seem to be wired backwards. The neck pickup control is at the bottom and vice versa which is only weird at first but after playing for a few hours and then changing guitars it can mess you up for a minute! I would highly recommend this axe for anyone looking for a Tele style body without the rockabilly aspect of one. Not that there is anything wrong with that of course, just my taste :)

"Feels good..."
Overall: 3.5 out of 5 stars

This thing is built solid. My issues are with the pre-delivery stuff. I was figuring that there would be a quick inspection of it to make sure that everything was on the up and up. It got to me with one broken string, three of the other five were at full tension while the other two were relieved of tension. I've never set up a Floyd Rose, so I'm about to embark on an adventure with that. Aside from that, it sounds decent. I've never been a fan of EMG, and these definitely sound like their bottom end pickups. Very muddy, and hard to really get a tone that works for me. I'll be changing those out. It's a really great platform to put in the things that I want though, so no big loss there. The paint job is also really nice.

"Guitar feels great but.."
Overall: 3 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
So this guitar feels absolutely amazing in hand. Looks beautiful. Has good weight to it and definitely stands out. What I don't like is, I've cut myself multiple times on the locking nut on the top of the neck. There's an overhang that's fairly unpleasant. The emg's, well, sound like emgs. Pretty muddy and doesn't have the greatest clean tones. Low gain distortion sounds best with this guitar. I'm a huge fan of the the pt fastback but this one kinda let me down and I'm still paying it off

"Over priced project Guitar (Buyer beware)"
Overall: 3 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Let me start buy saying that I have played other Schecter's in this same price range that were very nice to play. Unfortunately this is not the case with this instrument. First I'd like to talk about the tremolo are, the pop in bar stinks, the retaining nut on the underside of the base plate would constantly loosen itself making the arm move anytime you would adjust your position which in turn made an horrific noise. the only way to fix this issue is to remove your strings and springs, then remove the tremolo from the cavity, now you have access to the retention nut, it's a giant process. Which brings us to the tremolo springs, terrible get rid of them. $629.99 and this guitar doesn't come with noiseless springs? could schecter not spend a few extra dollars to make this guitar even somewhat playable? Any hand movement on the bridge gets picked up, totally unacceptable for an instrument in this price range. lastly the electronics, nothing egregious here just very underwhelming. dime sized pots that choke your tone.The quality of the neck and body seem fine and are pretty comfortable, but you are going to at minimum pay an additional $100+ just to make this pile playable.Floyd rose original arm=$30noiseless springs= $15-$30EMG solderless pickup kit= $40ishJust save your money and buy something better, like a Jackson or even a hellraiser.stay away from this thing, it isn't worth your time or money.pros: Active Emg pickups Floyd Rose Body route Comfortable neckCons: Super cheap electronics Floyd Rose Special pop in tremolo arm The absolute noisiest tremolo springs that I have yet to encounter

"Disappointed"
Overall: 1 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The first one shipped with a broken 3 way switch. The second one shipped and the A string will not intonate.I am a certified Fender/Charvel/Jackson tech. I know how to set up a guitar. This was such a disappointment.The worse part is I didn't get a chance to set it up in time to return it and I have not received any response from zZounds on the problem. I have been a long time customer, I may not be buying from them again.
