General What is your overall opinion of this product? I have never been a Schecter fan. Usually when I look for a good gigging guitar, or to try something new, it was always LTD. This guy showed me Schecter really stepped up their game. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Price to quality this can't be beat. Hipshot bridge, locking tuners, self lubricating nut, and decent pickups. Find this for under a grand on another guitar....I dare you Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? My previous experience with Schecter was that the necks were baseball bats. This being my first 8 string, I find it a smooth transition. The only gripe is the amount of gloss on the back of the neck. A non issue that i can fix with some 1000 grit. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Not really digging the Black outs. They are a catch 22 for me, I like duncans...but never big into actives. I will say I have not had enough time to really tweek them so my opinion could change. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? They did a great job, the color is solid and fluid. Most companies just through out an 8 string thats black and call it game over. Schecter actually put some thought into this thing, the aged white makes me happy. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? 5 years ago at this price range LTD could not be touched. Schecter really has taken the price point to quality to a new level. Playability How was the action out of the box? Like all new guitars it needed tweaking

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Not a single flaw that I could see out of the box, and I gave it a good inspection. Feels solid, doesn't feel cheap. General Your general opinion of this product. This is probably the only 8 string guitar that could ever satisfy me, it is so close to perfection to my taste it is incredible. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone is definitely Dark, but almost has a bright quality as well. The low end booms thanks to the mahogany. The Blackouts could stand to have gain control on their pre-amp, they're just a little too hot. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The Aged White is the most gorgeous white I've ever seen, it is a beautiful finish.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This guitar looks heavy, however it's very light in nature. It's very cozy to play. It showed up at my home with a little bit of high action. I had it setup by my guitar tech, and problem solved. The beefy 8 strings are sooo awesome. There's no flub to these stings. The satin finish feels so smooth and almost like skin. General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar is totally hip and comfortable to play. Looking to turn some heads and ears? Check this thing out. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I love the snappiness of the ebony fretboard. I wouldn't go back to rosewood ever. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? You have to feel it to believe how smooth this thing is. I'm in love with it. It looks like a stealth fighter.
