Those new Banshee-ish things look pretty good to me.
...would play the crap out of it...
Ugh, enough with the bargain basement burl.
No shit. Burl, spalt, flame, quilt, exotic. I am just sick AF of all these veneers on every single thing. Unless it is a real top, I want a solid color.
Not to mention the Kieselizing of everything lately with bevels and atrocious paintschemes over garbage veneers. That guitar would look awesome in gloss metallic silver.
Remember when all the budget metal guitars were gloss metal and everyone was complaining? THIS is what you get!!
If by "gloss metal" you mean "black", that's now my favorite name for that color ever.
Still I wish they used more solid colors. They tend to put too many flamed fancy tops, that's not for everyone, especially in metal genre. And when there's no figured veneer, they use satin black, which is way out of my preferences. Dunno, I still think their coolest metal stuff was the old Blackjack series
Nothing too fancy, simple yet effective. Loved that cream binding. And yeah, the cards logo as well.
The ATX models weren't too bad either, but I still feel they've never topped the early 00's Diamond Series, as far as aesthetics.
From 00' to 04' they were putting out some really cool, sophisticated looking instruments. Then, in 05' they started jumping the shark with the Hellraiser and Damien series.
Interestingly, that's also when quality took something of a dive.
Ah damnit, yes, gloss black. Hopefully Ibanez can pick up that nomenclature for next year's lineup!
Speaking of gloss black, I really wish they'd make these again.
Since getting my A7 I've been gassing for an 8 string version.
I'm fine with regular veneers like flame and quilt but BURL CAN GET TO F*CK.
Burl looks good when it's a proper top on a custom guitar, but anything else you end up looking like legator. It's pretty much an expressway to "I'm a cheap low end guitar".
Man those burls look terrible but $700 for a top notch fanned fret ain't bad.
ewww that fanned fret headstock is disgusting.
I kinda want to buy ones of those gross burls for cheap and completely mod it and refinish it. Maybe throw a flamed maple veneer on it. At the same time, it's very unique in the sense that only a few were made...
It can be as cheap as it wants, with that aesthetics I wouldn't want to have it in my room (bevel, burl, color combo, ...).
I don't know why, the bevel on headstock looks cool, but not on the body. Schecter definitely can do a full top to cover the bevel, like km-7 mkii.
And I don't even mind a solid color and save 100-200 bucks.
If it's a south korean guitar that just needs a pickup change...
I've always had good luck with MiK Schecters. It's why I stan for them so much.
