    This is what happens when I ask for more 80es.

    I guess Schecter officially announced the Silver Mountain Diamond Series line on Instagram today. Typical stuff but with the addition of a multiscale 8, which I don't think they've done as a production model before. Seem to be moving away from straight-scale 8s?

    I tend to like that finish, honestly I'm a bit tired of figured tops

    I'd say it's a great time!

    We're past the puke burl phase, now we get some wild finishes!

    ALSO this is 25.5 to 27 inch! Finally an 8 that isn't 28" from Schecter! I know people like the 28's but I've always much preferred 27's.

    Yeah, IMHO those are the right specs for low B and low F#.

    It looks like a nice fan too, not too wide down low, not crazy at the high end and they got nice spacing with the bridge pickup where it does get pretty angled at the bridge. This looks solid!

    To be fair, the LTD MS1008 or whatever has had similar specs and Id probably prefer that personally

    The switch on that is so camouflaged I thought Schecter had made a bold choice and gone with only individual volume knobs.

    I think the fact that they have the thin c and not ultra thin c on these is kind of a bummer. And gloss necks aswell? No satin?

    The only thing i like about these series is the headstock veneer/paint is finally following the angled nut. Other than that, this finish is giving me nightmares, also 8 strings are still not my thing at all. I hope to see a decent purple for 7 string models for 2020.

    The finish isn't my cup of tea but man, everything else on that thing looks great!

    If they are Korean made, I'd say they are priced fairly. I still can't decide if I like the look or not. I really love this look on customs like Aristides and KxK, but for some reason it just looks a little off on a Schecter. Maybe its the non pointy headstock?

    I like those, but I'm expecting more from them this year.
