The single cut looks great.
It seems like they've not put any effort into the headstock though.
Which is a massive let down

The headstock looks fine on the single cut. it's a Gibson "style" headstock without getting close enough to cause Schecter any trouble. Why they used it on the Avenger though, I have no idea.

Ease of production probably. Given the small size of these runs, I can't say I blame them.

today i picked up an old omen 7 in my local store and i swear to god the neck was wizard thin. the body was thinner and actually had an arch top. i dont know why shecter changed that guitar so much over the years.

regardless, schecters necks really arent bad. but maybe id think so too if i got spoiled by ibby wizard profiles.

I like the headstock on the solo, but not the avenger, being a avenger fan\past owner, it NEEDS the original avenger headstock. But like someone said before they made limited models so its easier to do just one headstock.

Well, yeah, but it's not like Schecter doesn't have other headstock designs; even an existing 8 string one that I think would have been fairly universally accepted as looking better on the Avenger body than this one does.

If it were 24.75" scale I would sell something to buy one immediately. High A with real bending!

Wiz 2's are pretty chunky feeling with the wide shoulders and 19-21mm thickness. Now superwizards with the 17-19mm thickness and proper neck profile is where its at. When I turn the guitar sideways you can't even see the neck!

They've had the ATX C-8s in red for a while now I think. I'll probably be investing in the aged black pretty soon

I would definitely invest in the purple one if I had that kind of disposable income.

Not to crap all over this comment but as a wizard 2 owner i can firmly say that "wizard 2" and "pretty chunky" are worlds apart. Even taking the large shoulders into consideration the neck doesn't come anywhere close to the feeling of "chunky"ness. Not that a chunky neck is a bad thing. I was just completely thrown back by the comment.

Its all relative, I play a superwizard neck so a wizard 2 feels damned chunky by comparison.

Even most modern prestige necks feel like they have more heft than the superwizard... because by comparison they do... a superwizard neck is as thin at the 12th fret as the wizard 2 is at the first...

I was just being a smart ass because he thinks the wizard 2 is this ridiculously thin neck when its one of the thickest feeling necks ibanez puts out.
