    I think this might be mine. A PT8-FR with tortoise shell double binding.

    I picked up an SLS Elite 7 FR last night, still have to give it a proper setup and fretboard conditioning this weekend. One of the only guitars currently on the market to meet all my needs (26.5" scale, Floyd Rose, volume knob not right up next to the bridge pickup, stainless frets, neck through, etc). Plus it comes with noiseless springs which I always install, so that saves a couple of bucks. It's quite beautiful really and I got GC to do a 15% off. Got it primarily cause I only have my custom Jackson Kelly 7 and there's no way in hell I'm taking that to the studio/gigs. So I needed a guitar to take places :lol:

    Oh, I'm also going to put swap the bridge and neck pickups around as I'm a totally Alnico fanboy and want that in the bridge position.

    Fluence Modern Alnico is def my fav 8-string pickup at the bridge. Wish they made the Modern 8s in passive-sized housings.

    Absolutely one of the best decisions I ever made when I owned a Fishman Modern set. I wish more Fishman equipped guitars came with an Alnico bridge.

    Those look suspiciously unlike single coils...
    Oh boy, you probably don't want to hear about the imminent open coil Javier Fluences.

    I know :( In the end, I love the black one and wanted one identical to it except different aesthetics.

    Oh well, I can't fault anyone for falling in love with a Schecter CS. Unfortunately I've had to kick mine down the road a bit, but hopefully the NGD that's delaying it will be here in January or February and more than make up for it.

    Love their use of their USA pickups on the diamond stuff. Likely helps then scale pup manufacturing business better and not have to buy third party stuff but still gives customers quality

    This might be a very dumb question, but does Schecter usually show off USA/custom shop stuff at Namm or do they stick pretty much exclusively to their import/production line?

    Last year's NAMM showing from Schecter was pretty minimal. Some USA production and customs, mostly diamond series.
