The individual one-per-string bridges on that one Cort look like what’s on the Jackson. How are those compared to the Hipshot bridge you see on Schecters?

It looks like there is some variation in the weights of these guitars. If I get one that is too light, will it neck dive?

Schecter is easily one of the most consistent brands out there from low end to high end, theyre pretty bang on. I personally would buy a schecter over a Jackson 99 times out of 100.

Back then when Jackson was putting out MIJ guitars at Schecter korea prices, those destroyed any Schecter. Had both a Loomis sig and the SLAT3-7 (same pricing) and the Jackson obliterated the Schecter (while also including a case).

Good times. Those days are long gone and now MIJ Jacksons are over 2k...

Get some lightweight Gotoh tuners with aluminum buttons from Philadelphia Luthier tools. The stock tuners are garbage anyway.
