    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.)

    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. :squint:

    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. :yesway:

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

    I was also watching this, damn do I want one of these things badly.

    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.
