NGD: Schecter Jazz-7 hollowbody

Been after one of these for *years*, so when my eBay filter popped up a match last week, I jumped on it. Only about 100 were made during 2000-2002; according to Schecter, the serial number makes mine a 2000 model.

Less talk - more pics!







Specs:

17" maple semi-hollow body (there's a small block under the bridge only - pickups are mounted in the top)
Mahogany neck
22-fret rosewood fretboard
25.5" scale
Two volume, two tone with coil splits

This is my first "jazz" guitar (my other hollowbody is an aluminum/synthetic sandwich that would outrage most traditional jazzers), and I'm really enjoying the acoustic tone. I've been playing my OAF 8 exclusively for the last six months or so, which makes the reduction to seven strings and reversion to a more traditional neck profile something of a challenge, but I'm enjoying it nonetheless. Pickups are Duncan Design, and definitely need to go - I don't really care for open-coil humbuckers anyway, especially on an instrument like this. I expect to drop a pair of covered BKP Mules into this when finances permit. For a 10+-year-old guitar, it's in *fantastic* shape, with just a couple of scratches on the back and small dings on the body binding. Couldn't be happier! (Well, unless someone gave me new pickups as a gift, but let's be realistic.)

If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.
-The Gospel of Thomas

Melody is the outpouring of the soul. Words interrupt the stream of the emotions.
For the songs of the souls, at the time they are swaying in the high regions to drink from the well of the Almighty,
consist of tones only, dismantled of words.
-Rabbi Shneur Zalman

I have to hate you for this, as my girlfriend was almost literally crying when it went off the bay.

But HNGD nonentheless man, you better enjoy that thing.

Sorry, bro! If I ever suffer a debilitating aneuryism or quadraplegia or other condition that means I will never play guitar again ever, I'll keep you in mind for this one.

Fantastic score, these guitar seem really fantastic and you can't beat a hollow body when trying to get that tone.

No, but it will automatically generate dominant-7th arpeggios on each note of the diminished-7th arpeggio a half-step above the V7 of any chord you're playing at the moment. And steal your girlfriend.
