Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The mahogany body and quilted top are beautiful. General Your general opinion of this product. Very nice for an 8 string, you can go with a lower priced option but you won't get the same level of beauty as this axe. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Bright pickups, I prefer a mellow Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is top notch.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well made instrument. Solid and very dependable. General Your general opinion of this product. This was an impulse purchase. When I received the guitar I was glad I ordered it. It's well built overall and the EMGs scream through my Marshall JCM800. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Screaming tone. This thing rips through my Marshall JCM800. The tone is tight and heavy. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Quality is what you would expect from any Schecter. Top notch. I got the see through black finish from the other big name musical company as a Christmas gift from the wife, but being as I always personally buy my stuff here, I thought it best to review it here. The finish on the see through black is gorgeous. The inlays are great too. Everything is exactly as I would expect it to be and more. It is very sturdy and heavy as you would expect from an 8 string. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall, I am VERY, very impressed with this guitar. The intonation is 99% dead on right out of the box at 12th fret, sound is phenomenal with the 808s, finish is gorgeous and neck is so quick. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is perfect. See through black is gorgeous and I would expect all the other to be the same.
Its like I relearned to play!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I haven't gigged with it, but he seems like a formidable guitar compared to my old ESP, which has been through hell and back. I have full confidence that this will be a dependable main guitar for me. General Your general opinion of this product. I'm not saying that this guitar made me a better guitarist it just opened up a whole lot of new range for me to play around in and I've developed a different style of playing and writing that feels more comfortable to me. I think this is hands down the best quality 8 string anywhere near its price tag and I would have paid more for the same quality. Definitely the best guitar choice I've ever made. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone on this is very versatile for a baritone. I tend towards the middle chunk with some presence and it steps up for that with no problem. It has a deep and powerful low end to it, thanks to the extra low strings. The pickups are hot and solid just like EMGs are meant to be. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish on this thing is spotless. It looks amazing.
