UTILIZATION

This is a wonderful instrument. It balances perfectly, is not too heavy, and it plays very well - the neck is incredible. The pickups (Super Rock II by Schecter) are of a quality that I'd put them up there with the best boutique brands available - they're that good. The hardware is top notch - the TonePros bridge and Grover hardware provide incredible tuning stability. The look of the guitar is understated, yet classy, with the natural finish on top of flame maple, as well as the binding.

SOUNDS

These pickups are great! The Super Rock II pickups astounded me - they deserve to be marketed and sold separately. To use a baseball analogy, I think Schecter has a grand slam on its hands with these pickups. Unfortunately they were only available on this particular short-lived model of guitar! They split very well also, with the push-pull coil tapping.

Pickups aside, the guitar is very loud and vibrant when played acoustically. I really can't think of a genre this guitar would not excel in!

OVERALL OPINION

This is a fantastic instrument, all the way around. I wish they made more of them, and I wish there was a 7 string version as well. I wish there was a version with a piezo element in the bridge....this guitar is so nice, I wish I had a variety of them with slightly different features, just because the neck and body are so perfect for me!
