    I hope Schecter goes Ibanez this time and makes a signature bass using shapes they already have and not THAT ONE:lol:

    Imho it looks better than an RG, it just needs a Trad. headstock

    I like Schecter for being Schecter, not for trying to be Ibanez.

    Oh man that is perfect. :hbang:
    I bought the older Banshee in grey/black recently it's so damn playable I decided I'd track down another but I'm definitely going to hold for one of these instead.
    Due to the carve I get the RG comparisons but the overall simplicity of it reminds me of the Jim Root strat which is no bad thing in my book I just hope they try expanding the Banshee line by introducing a PT to the series next year.

    I do agree that it would look better with a straight-6 headstock (reversed, anyone?), but I would definitely jam on it as-is. If only they made it in a 7...

    Wrong headstock, but I've been saying the Banshee needed a pickguard for awhile now, so I'm glad as .... they went that route.

    So, this is a prototype Banshee for the next year? Not quite what I expected.

    The red Banshee.

    I want it in me.

    I'm guessing it and that E1 are in a new series?

    YES! :rofl:

    I actually like this better than the black Damien with the pumpkin-orange bat inlays that they did for Halloween last year.

    I'm not a fan of extreme shapes, but that maple fretboard and the new Schecter headstock look so clean with that black finish; and the black finish is way less obnoxious than the red finish.

    Can we appreciate that neck profile for a sec?

    So, they're bringing back the Ibanez RG350DX?

    Seems like it's meant to be a stripped-down series to go with the Damien and Stealth Series. Doesn't have the body and headstock binding, and only has neck binding with dot inlays.
