Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Cygnus JLX-1 with Floyd Rose Electric Guitar:

I simply could not be happier☺ with my rad, Hot looking new guitar with an ugly name except for 1 issue. One issue that was almost a return-it issue for me...... but I hung in there, got accustomed & I'm now 110% in Luv♥♥♥
Although I'm only 19 I've been playing for 12 years and am usually considered serious & accomplished for my age. This is about my 15th guitar, but it's my 1st lightning bolt or I guess you could say (per my dad) kinda Gibson Explorer body shape. All of my others have been ESP's or Schecters with typical Strat, Les Paul or Vee shapes. Every other guitar I've ever owned, or played for that matter, have balanced about the same when strapped-on & at rest... With the headstock naturally higher than the guitar body at about a 45 degree angle. Because of the strap mounting point positions, the headstock of this Schecter Cygnus (that name:() gives in to gravity and aggressively dives towards the ground..... Unless you constantly support the neck with your fret hand (weird & unnatural) or hold the body end down with your pick hand forearm. This totally blew my mind for awhile. I literally played like a beginner for a couple weeks & came very close to giving it up and sending it back. The fact that It's a kinda big & heavy guitar and I'm 5' 3" 110lb girl only exasperated the problem for me..... but as I said: I stuck with it. worked through it, got used to it and now I Luv♥it.
My dad, a very accomplished guitarist, hates it because of the balance deal. We both agree that if possible, play it before buying it.
Hope this confusion made some sense to you guys':(

Service and delivery comments:

MF shipped it quickly and it arrived in perfect physical condition.
Guitar was not set up well (neck was reverse bowed, intonation poor on a few strings etc but you should be able to setup your own guitar anyway☺)
