However, Mr. Thorn sure is an artist. I wish he joined the SGR crew, I'd be huge!
The Bobbins will be a black and green material that will probably match the swirl.
I just realized something... Did they change the pickguard on the E-1 Standard to be closer to an Explorer? I'm seeing two different E-1s
I'm assuming the top one is the "new" one, since they feature it on this video they recently posted
Believe it or not I think I prefer the older pickguard...
I kinda dig both. Schecter always tried to "be" Gibson to some extend, so that wouldn't be a surprise.
Except that nowadays they're surpassing Gibson on just about every level imaginable.
Pretty much, though Gibsons always have a sound of their own for reasons. But the similarities Schecter has with Gibson are quite significant. They make tons of Mahogany based guitars, and pretty much all Gibson shapes are covered by Schec catalog. Both the V-1 and the Solo,which looked somehow unique, were re-styled to be more gibsonesque. Also, some of their pickups are very Gibson sounding (which is a great thing).
At the moment, yeah, they could surely compete with Gibson with ease, even at higher price range.
If that is the HetSet... then it's even funny!!
Most likely the 57/66. Hellraiser Hybrid
But damn, never seen an Explorer with a Hipshot. Looks... ugly.
In white It'd be a totally snakebyte killer
The big problem is 24 frets. That made them shift the bridge way up on the body (because the nut is further from the body), so there already is extra space behind the bridge. The smaller Hipshot makes it even more obvious that the proportions are all wrong.
Yeah that's I was thinking. Same reason I think 24-fret Les Pauls look ugly.
The massive Floyd Rose on the 24-fret ones works much better.
Yeah, I think a lot of 24-fret guitars are ugly because of this. The extra frets force the proportions to change or to make a deeper cutaway.
Damn that explorer is the tits. I want it.
I hate T.O.M.'s, so that one is perfect for me...what is the scale on that thing, if anyone knows? Looks a little longer than normal to me, but that could be the Hipshot creating that effect, or something.
this without inlays or emgs would be perfect for me
Nah, it's not even in the Het camp without a TOM, and I'd love a Snakebyte with a Floyd. But Snakebyte has that beveled wing now and all, it's going it's own direction and rightfully. Till, of course, Gibson tanks and magically the MX pops back into production.
Not a fan of the Snakebyte honestly
plus sweetwater bonus
Man, I was just thinking about a Ken Lawrence-inspired E-1 as well.
