    Default Schecter Tempest Custom....




    My new baby. Best guitar I could ever buy for 600 bux! I really wanted somthing that had that Wolfgang flavor. Only thing I dont like is the Neck thru body design. But, fuck, I love it!

    Anyone else ever play these??

    Yes, I just picked one up last week for my 30th birthday, and I must say that it is the best value i have ever received in guitar. It was listed for $540, but I talked the salesman down to $450 before tax. One thing, it is not a neck through, it is actually a set neck, which you could verify by Scheter's wesbsite. It is 24 3/4 scale guitar, so it is schecters take on the Les Paul and SG.

    The guitar sounds great clean (something I could never get the Wolfgand to do), and sounds excellet with distortion. I am impressed with the humbucking position and the split coils. I can go from a good Jimi Hendrix style clean and distortion (in split coil) to a van halen style distortion in humbucker mode.

    I have owned a wolfgang, PRS (not SE), american strats, and I currently own an all rosewood axis supersport. THis guitar is currently challenging the $1,200 axis as my main guitar, and that is saying alot because the axis is a good all around guitar. The guitar plays sounds and looks incredible, and I would take it over an SG or wolfgang. The only thing it doesn't have is a trem, but I like the sustain of the locking tone pros bridge. If you are locking for the Les Paul vibe, then this is an excellent and cheap option. $450 new.

    My main axe is a Les Paul, but my primary backup is my Schecter 006 Elite.
    It plays well, looks great and sounds really good. Best bang for the buck I've ever had in a guitar.

    How are the necks on those things? I always thought they looked interesting, but I'm partial to either thinner or narrower necks.
