    I bought mine a week ago now and the serial number is N11072675 and it's made in Indonesia and based on where I bought it, I have no doubt that it's legit. Other than that I can't offer you any help; what colour is it?

    Schecter has some of their guitars manufactured in Indonesia. I know that in the US, only authorized Schecter dealers can sell new Schecters, but it might be different where you are. I'm going to guess that it's probably legit, as I haven't heard anything about Schecter copies.

    Someone who realises that more people are likely to buy what seems like a Schecter for a 3rd of the retail price than a Gibson for half of the retail price. People will find it strange to see something worth lots go for cheaps and will likely notice the discrepancies (maybe Gibson was a bad example) but people buying a Schecter supposedly made in an Indonesian factory will be less likely to notice tell tale signs.

    because it's like building yourself a honda kit car when you may as well go for the ferrari! I mean i love my Damian Elite 8 to death but it's no strandberg.

    My point was just that people are less likely to notice mistakes in a copy of a cheaper guitar than a more expensive one so if you fake a cheaper guitar then more people are likely to buy it. People buying a £2000 guitar are more likely to notice what's wrong with it so you'd probably be wasting your time trying to rip off something like that.

    I was searching this very topic on google last night after I picked up my Schecter Damien 7 from a local pawn shop. I sh*t you not, my serial number is one earlier than yours! ending in 2298.
