    Me and some guy started talking bout trading guitars, my EX-260 for his guitar. :shred:

    Both agreed on meeting in Palmeston North to do the trade...

    I dont have any pics of me playing it or anything, camera died just after i loaded these pics onto the computer.

    Virtually stock Schecter 7, strings were dull (replaced them with 10-56) - added some foam (ZOMG THE STRING REVERB WAS LOUUDDD!!!).

    The neck on the Schecter Omen-7 isn't that thick actually, it felt round the same (slightly thicker) than the SC-207 i previously played. It actually feels better :).

    Will drop some more pics on this thread later with close ups etc.

    Hey guys,
    Another update:
    because i'm a poor "to-be" University student, i'm thinking of just getting one EMG-707 (flame war commences) for bridge and cut the other pup out (but leave it in :p) - this is mainly to remove this muddy sounds i get from this guitar.
