Reviews From Buyers
I needed a 4-string to go along with the 5-string that I play most of the time. The looks of this guitar actually caught my attention first. The flamed maple top and color of the finish are beautiful. Then I played it, and I found that these Diamond pickups have a much greater range of tone than any P or J configuration I had tried before. The active EQ has a bit higher output, so it's possible to drive the tube preamp in my rig without using a separate preamp. Center detents on the bass, treble, and blend pots are a nice touch, enabling you to figure out how they are set without looking (handy on stage). The Mahogany body is fairly light, and adds a nice warmth to the tone. Actually, the bridge pickup sounds a bit thin to me, but that still fits my style, as I tend to lean more on the neck pickup, and pluck up near the neck joint most of the time. Speaking of the neck joint; short of buying a guitar with neck-through construction, the robust 6-bolt neck of the Schecter is the next best thing. There are no dead spots in the neck, and sustain is nearly the equivalent of a neck-through. I'm sure that I'm going to enjoy this guitar for a long time.
