I was looking for a guitar, that had the feel of a strat but looked more like its from the Les Paul family and this is it, I bought this guitar (White)from Guitar Center back in 2008, I love the feel and look, it makes me stand out when I'm up with other players, I love the tone, and the coil tap makes it sound like a different guitar, the only set back is the strings appear to be somewhat tight, but, I'm used to it now, I put the softer gauge on and I play everyday, the more I play the more I love it. This is my #1 so far!
I played this guitar a few years ago and I've always said that I would own one. I bought this one last week and I love it. this is my 6th guitar and I normally play a schecter hellraiser avenger... and while this one doesn't quite top it, it's a great guitar. I was a little apprehensive about the pickups because of the reviews about them being noisy and weak... they're not as powerful as active pickups, but that's what separates actives from passives... All I did to them was raise them a little. Overall, this guitar is beautiful in white, it sounds amazing... great value and this will be a permanent guitar in my set-up.
I picked this up on 1/03/10 and bought it as a backup for my Gibson Les Paul, shockingly I'm going to be using it at our upcoming shows at State Theatre in St Pete FL and House of Blues in Orlando FL. Being honest this guitar is nicer and plays just as well as the Les Paul! It has a very thick and rich tone that is very desireable if you are playing hrad rock. The neck is easy to play on and it's weight is very balanced! Great Guitar!
ive owned this thing for 2 years now, plenty of shows, dozens of written songs, and lots of jamming with this guy. i loved the stock pick ups but i had the opportunity to upgrade to Seymour Duncan Jazz pups and took it. that said its even better then before. sometimes i play guitars in stores just to remind myself what a good guitar this really is. it's tone(as of new pups) can be described as full, but not dark and chunky. it really has a good tone for anything to metal to jazz as i see it. it has a tele feel to it when the coil tap is pulled up. with the tap up and the neck pick up selected it has good cleans to my ear. i would recommend this thing to anyone, plus its beautiful. i hope this helps anyone looking at this guitar.
I was at Guitar Center earlier today trying out a bunch of guitars, and this one caught my eye. The biggest thing it lacked for me was a nice full tone. It lacked a certain punch that I prefer to be there. It plays ok, it sits on your lap comfortably enough. I just thought it sounded like crap compared to the other guitars I played. I found that odd because I've played several Schecter guitars and I thought the Tempest was much lower in quality compared to a Hellraiser or the C-1 Classic my friend has. I would never buy this. If I did, I would throw in some better pickups.
I've only been playing electric guitar for one year, and this is only my second guitar, but I know what I like, and I love this guitar! It has everything from searing solos to crunchy power chords to ringing melodies. I got it in black, and the gold hardware is dazzling! With its sleek looks, coil tap versatility, and amazing tone, it's a five star guitar!
I'd be very much willing to put money down on the fact that this guitar can literally play anything.I originally bought this guitar to bide time till I'd be able to get my hands on an LP Custom, but since I opened up this bad boy, I no longer have a need for any other guitar. I get all of the low-mid crunch I need out this thing, while still having an infinite amount of tonal headroom. I can go from dark, high gain riffage, to sparkling cleans with ridiculous sustain and detail with the stock p-ups alone. Though I feel this guitar's quality is worth triple the listing price, I do have a few gripes in the same instance. The pickups, although they are great stock, can be a bit noisy at times and produce a lot of irritating hum. This is a simple fix, if you have enough cash to buy a bit more high-end humbuckers. The Tempest is my absolute favorite among the entire Schecter roster, and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone having second thoughts about picking up a Les Paul.
I just purchased this guitar yesterday. And I have to say it was a very worth investment. At the music shop I tried several gibsons and fenders before picking this one up. I couldn't believe it. This little axe smoked the competition. I highly suggest you check this guitar. The fretboard is very accessable. It has something for everyone. You won't be disappointed. But it!
I wanted this guitar from the second I laid eyes on it. At first, I didn't even care about the sound.I played one of these a few months ago and fell in love with the sound. I finally ordered it in September. It was on backorder for over a month, needless to say, I was frustrated with the wait, but I figured it must be a REALLY good guitar to be on that long of a wait.It came, and I was right. It was perfectly tuned and set up straight out of the box. I plugged it in to my peavey and fell in love again.I can play anything on this. I won't need another guitar. I've received many compliments on the looks of the guitar. Sounds and looks equally gorgeous.Bottom line...buy this guitar.
I've been using Ibanez guitars for a while because they are cheap. But I decided it was time for a change so I went out and picked up this baby and I have never been happier. It sounds incredible no matter what music you play. I've played with heavier tuning and it sounds great and when i switch over to lighter softer guitar riffs guess what? It still sounds great. It's not too pricy so that made it all better. I may never use a different brand of guitar after this. I suggest this guitar A LOT!
