    If Schecter really cared about making money, they’d do more stuff like this. This is what the revitalized Banshee series should be, not the GT.

    I LOVE the looks of the HYBRID 7, but I haven't followed Schecter for years. Can someone please enlighten me on what the hierarchy in terms of hi-end-ness is? Is the Artist the highest model? Or Hybrid/Stage/Pro? Thanks!

    Out of the imports, from highest to lowest: Artists, Hybrid, Standard. The Artists and Hybrid are of the same quality expect the Hybrid just has less features like no special top and the pickups only have one voice. The Standard is made in Indonesia (the other two are Korean made) and has cheaper Schecter made pickups and cheaper unknown hardware. I did a full review with sound clips of the standard, I'm sure you can find it pretty easy on my profile.

    Also anyone else notice that Schecter's site is not longer showing the KMI or KMII anymore? They must be getting discontinued this year.

    Thank you. So the Stage and the Pro will be made in USA, with the Pro being the highest model? I wonder what that one would cost then... :O

    They put them in the "vault" section of the website, so I guess they are. Kinda sucks, but it has been 6 years since they first came out. FWIW, I'm still using mine from that first batch, and it's been my main guitar since.

    They noticed my tears every time a new catalog came out.

    The Merrow Hybrids are growing on me . I am a sucker for white guitars.

    I think the logo should be scale up a bit, it looks too small.

    My thoughts exactly! I have two of the old Banshees and I love them, largely because of the comparatively minimalist appearance. I don't know what Schecter is thinking with the GT and Banshee Extreme models.
