    I think it is like the Ford Mustang theory. It was launched at kids more than adults. These guitars appeal to a certain buyer. I hated plain jane retro/vintage guitars in 1985. Strats and LP's sucked my nuts. Now an old man, I like vintage guitars and gear and don't want graphics or crazy shapes any more. So I think it is a marketing move to offer a well made and affordable axe with a look that appeals to a certain crowd.

    That makes sense. Time to go yell at some clouds I guess.

    Yeah those bolt-on banshees (red and purple?) with the side dots, and really minimalist looks were absolutely beautiful. How long did that series last?

    I think 2 or 3 years. I really wanted one in high school. I got a purple 7 string my first year in college, and I got a red 8 string in 2015 for a really good price shortly after they were discontinued. They also came in black and orange I believe. The Banshee Elites are lovely though!

    I have a CR-6, but I have still yet to see a Reaper in person. I know I always expected to get one.

    I love mine also! That series was awesome, and I don't know why they have messed them up ever since! I have considered grabbing a few more of them if I ever find them cheap enough. Even though they are the "Ultra Thin C" neck, I find the newer guitars with that 'same' neck thinner, and tinier.

    Here is mine!

    That is such a straightforward and beautiful looking guitar. I like Schecter, always have, but at the same time, the way they cheese up their guitars and change them from these minimalist offerings leaves me scratching my head. They have enough models on offer to be able to have a line or 2 like this that's just normal.

    Yup, they were leaked a month or two ago.

    They also aren't very cheap. :lol:

    It's $2349 Canadian.

    That's like three paperclips and a half of a Hot N Ready pizza over here.

    It looks like a Chapman and a Chapman had a son.

    Still like 300 dollars more than a PRS S2 pricing is definitely wrong on those.
