EMG's active pickups put out a lot of power in this beast. Ive been using it mostly for thrash but it sounds great playing pretty much anything. the neck is a little wider than i had hoped, but no worse than any other guitar. full fretboard acess and respomsive pickups. would have been ok with two tone knobs. but the volume knobs have push/pull coil taps that work well for jazz or blues too. not too heavy, tremolo stays in tune well. all in all, great guitar to have. great finish, black chrome hardware, sexy beast 899 at guitar center. worth it great for metal, wouldnt mind some more features, but im still totally happy.
Ok. I've seen a few reviews of this guitar and seriously think they are "copy, pasting" each others review. So this guitar needs more features? What!!!! Ok a guitars main features are volume, tone, selecter switch. It has them all. Even a double locking trem, and an actual floyd rose! Even Grover tuners! What more could you ask for??? Maybe metals most defining pickups (EMG's), oh sorry it also has them... As well as a solid mahagony neck and body. All top notch features that you want in a guitar. Quality of the guitar is actually pretty good, I may even say excellent. Looks great and plays great. Complete value for the money asked compared to other brands I have played over the years. I totally love these guitars now. The woods they are made of, the hardware and pickups that are used. You simply cant get any better hardware! Only quibble is that the neck is a big thick. Kind of like a les paul with 24 frets, but still feels awesome to play. Also an ebony fretboard would set this guitar on fire! \m/
i find that this guitar had lots of problems, the finger board binding from the 9-24th frets was horribly made, and the neck pickup volume/coil tap fell off and wont go back on.. fail on schecters part. maybe one of the mess ups on the assembly but being a schecter customer for afew years now and being impressed MORE with my schecter s-1 (it is superb quality for a 500 dollar guitar, better than the hellraiser id say). it was just dissapointing to go home from the guitar store and have it fall apart almost (with the wrong Allen key..) all in all be careful with your purchases.
