Now that's a first for SSO.
They're for people who want a traditional-looking instrument with more modern playability.
100% agree with this. But, ya know, seeing they are somehow balancing themself between uberdj0ntbr00tal guitars and classic/rock oriented designs is sort of enough for me.
BTW Darrell "killingwithsmile" Braun reviewed the PT VN
Yep. That’s at least 40% of their catalog.
To their credit, Schecter's offerings went from gaudy to some gaudy, but so wide that they have some of the best "off the rack" options for production models. They're still not the first company I look at, but I find myself equally wanting a classy as fuck Sun Valley Shredder and a Balzac sig. They got the spectrum well, with a bunch of weird Gibson and Cure-inspired Gretsch spins in the middle, and some tacky nu-metally stuff still too.
Here's my 2nd Gen Loomis.
I was initially turned on to the idea solely by hearing Loomis shred like a raped ape in Nevermore and the cool visual impact, but I soon discovered the merits of 26.5" for 7-strings, which I consider perfect, along with the EMG pickups for max hi-gain clarity. Factory SS frets were a huge bonus! I also like that it has set neck construction. Loomis basically covers all the bases I would have if someone had offered to make a sig model for me....
It is easy to understand how this is a couple of generations more advanced than the original Universe guitars, although I still love those.
It still is a shame they never released a non-sig model after he left. It still seemed very popular.
Shit, give a sig to Ernie C from Body Count. His guitar is basically a heavily modded JL6. Dude's a Grammy winner now. Give him prestige.
that would be a sick af sig tbh.
He should just get a used one.
Surprised me to see Poppy's guitarist using one of the Banshee Machs live at the Grammys, specifically the 7 string model with Sustainiac
And so wide it's causing all sorts of problems for their website to load!
i don’t know if I’ve ever liked a Schecter aesthetically, but I would buy an Ernie C signature regardless of what it looked like/specs just because it was an Ernie C (although I think the one he usually plays is actually pretty cool).
What happened to Friday e7 apocalypse? Got taken down everywhere from what I've seen
So this sounds good
Custom shop run of Nick Johnston PT- WANT
OH DARTH FUCKER.
That looks unbelievably tasty.
However, I'm super glad I didn't like the playability of the strat at all, which kills my buying wants. It's the only guitar ever that sounded too icepicky because of the stainless steel frets. Just didn't gel with the very, very trebly sound at all. I'm assuming this will sound the same, and thus will be a skip
Nah this is a Tele, far thicker, rawer, more pissed.
... wondering if there will be an import version of that Johnston PT.....
HEY SCHECTER IF YOU ARE READING DO IT ALREADY!!!
