    Not really.

    Like anything else, if you're not comfortable doing it and don't do it often you're probably not going to be proficient at it. But that's what key tools are for.

    If you're changing intonation all the time, grab a set of "Hollow Points."

    I'd buy the shitout of the fade version if the body wasn't one big slab. It's not even like it has a cap or an arched top... why, Schecter?

    Tired of fades but that burst version can get it. I may have even typed this post up before

    Man I can't buy a guitar without a forearm bevel. I can play them just fine but I dig into the body too much to be comfortable with them over time. Pretty hard for me to buy a Telecaster, so I was hoping Schecter had finally nailed combining comfort, modern specs and good looks... so close!

    Depends on your playing and preferences. Personally I like some fight when playing guitar, that's why I'm not a fan of those instruments designed to make you feel like sleeping in a bed of clouds when playing.

    Schecter will make any of this guitars for you with a forearm cut if you ask them.

    Yeah, it's just what you're use to. I ordered some 8-string bolt ons with big block heels (and flat tops). I'm sure most people think that's ergonomically insane, but I hate playing guitars with the super-sculpted heels. It just feels weird to me if I'm playing high up the neck and nothings there for my left hand.

    The flat top can dig into your forearm a bit, but I find that it somewhat forced me to keep better right-hand posture to hold that forearm parallel to the body. (Though really the flat top was purely an aesthetic choice and now I'm trying to make the best of it).

    I gotta hand it to Zado, he never misses a Schecter. This is my masterworks finally done and shipped. The real bitch is I am leaving for business for a month today and it lands tomorrow.
    1.5 yrs and still not seen it in person. Can't wait to post pics when I get back but Jason should throw some up.

    I pop in this thread every now and then looking for news about a Pink Nick Johnston USA sig, but alas...
    closes thread disappointingly.

    Is there a reason the Custom Shop wouldn't build you exactly that guitar as a custom if you're anyway looking at a USA one?

    Shit just call them and see if they can take a USA Production NJ and make it pink. They're all made in the same place. Might cost extra but worth a shot.
