I like this ax for it's construction (set-neck, all mahog.), body shape, electronics & switching.

Your general opinion of this product.
Don't like the Blecch paint (how dull), the weird H/S with NO straight string-pull like on my other Ultra. The stop-tail is OK, but I'd prefer through-body stringing. Usual Schecter attention to detail & EXC. build quality and Q.C. Pretty comfy, med. weight, waist-cut in back is nice.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Yes, like most Schecter products. Decent electronic components, for this price point.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Would say medium brightness, but thanks to the tapped pickups and 3 HB's total, some pretty thick crunch and girth can be dialed in, as well as very satisfying highs, if that's what you like. I play w/very little treble, so it suits me pretty well in the 'wall-'o-sound department.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Great paint, horrible color (or boring?) and no options available. For a LEFTY. that's about par for the course, and one I seldom go for- but for THIS ax, I did, obviously. Lefties are hard to find- thankfully Schecter takes care of us better than many other manufacturers, and for that I LOUDLY applaud them, AND buy their products when I can!!
