This guitar is quite a guitar. It has a slim neck for slightly fast playing, and it is also slightly good looking if you polish it. It is comfortable for flicking around on stage cause it's so light...its tone is beefy and meant for metal. The tone controls...why even bother? The only thing it does is switch from hum bucker to single coil pickups....not much else goes on down there. This guitar is falling apart for me. the input jack broke, got that fixed, and now the volume knob feel out...ugh...I feel most comfortable on this guitar as opposed to my fender Mexican strat HSS. I?d go for it if you want to have a slightly good guitar...it's really not that bad, the pickups aren't good, but what do you expect? They are Duncan DESIGNED. Emphasis on the word "designed." But that can be changed. The cutaway is hard to go up on the neck with if you have big hands or even slightly big hands.

This is the best quality guitar you can buy for the money. Upgraded seymour duncan pickups and grover tuners. Nice finish lightweight with a fast neck. I have a fender I paid twice as much for but this guitar has become my main axe. Great guitar.

Amazing guitar

By SchecterPlayer6661

from Bat Country, Las Vegas

This guitar is simply amazing. Its the guitar that Zacky V from A7X plays and thats not all. ITs got JBs but thats not all. Its got an amazing smoothness to the neck but thats not all. Its got Grover tuners but......well you see my point! Schecter is one of the best brands out there.

I have a schecter blackjack atx fr, an american strat, and a gibson SG and this guitar is my favorite of the four. It is so easy to play and the sound is amazing. I bring my blackjack and my strat up on stage but 9 times out of ten I never pick them up, unless I break a string. If you are looking for a great guitar for a little money you should consider this one. The only thing I don't like is the cheapness of the volume tone controls, but that is a cheap fix. Its light, the fretboard is fast and easy, and with the set neck its very durable. The other guys in my band were blown away with the sound of this guitar. From country to metal this guitar does it all....highly recommended.

Awesome Shecter

By Metal Head95

from Ohio

I played this baby at my music store and if I would have had the money I would have bought it right then and there. The neck is VERY smooth and could easily outplay my Ibanez. The pick-ups were pretty good for stock. The finish was beautiful and would keep a crowd 's eye on you on stage. This is an AMAZING guitar!

I bought this guitar a little while back and just recently I put some EMG pickups in it. It is great for anyone who plays pretty much any genre of music.

A solid Axe!

By Mark Philpott

from French Quarter New Orleans

I own it and play on it almost every show (which is almost every weekend). If you like playing SG style guitars, like myself, this is almost perfect for you if you can't afford a Gibson price range....it's not too neck heavy, like most SG's...it has a larger body that help distribute the weight ...and it balances well when you take your hand off the neck. I was not thrilled with the factory pickups, resolved that by putting in Seymour Duncan's : SH-6 Distortion Humbucker in the bridge and a SH-2N Jazz Model Pickup in the neck (both $75 / piece). This guitar...with the upgraded pickups, really gets in done in this New Orleans Jazz/Blues setting. I would say that this is a good guitar for the regular guitarist who has a lil' bit of money to spend on pickup upgrades, and in my opinion, it's a very good upper price range beginner electric!

this guitar is amazing

By rob_rocks

from Tawas City, MI

I don't technically own it yet, but I have it on layaway, I go into the store practically every day to play it, it is an amazing guitar, the tone is very beefy, but still clear, the neck just feels natural, this guitar has great sustain, it is my 3rd guitar and this is by far the best guitar I have played at a very affordable price, I guarantee to you that if you buy this guitar, you will NOT be disappointed.

corn on the cob

By stratman lol

from New York

Good beginner level guitar. It is very hard to play down on frets past the 16th fret if you have slighlty big hands. The tones controls don't do much if you know what you're doing and what you want out of this guitar. I have had this for about 5 months and am not extremely satisfied. If you want a quality guitar that is for beginner level players, this ones for you as it is versatile and you can switch from humbuckers to single coil pickups by pulling up the tone control knob that doesn't do anything. But if your looking for anything over medium level playing, I'd go with an ltd ec 1000.

Awesome product

By ledzeppelinrules

from Summersville, WV

I have had this guitar for about 6 months and it was well worth the buy. If you are a rocker like myself, it will blow you away. The frets feel smooth and the strings couldn't be easier to hold down. This is a great guitar for anyone who wants an affordable guitar they can rock out with.
