"A good guitar for classic metal but will add a modern metal tone to your playing. Good for blues and acoustic sounds."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
I'd say the sound is natural. However heavy you want it it can get heavy, but with the coil tapping you can go to some beautiful tones.
Sound quality overall is good. Good range of tones. To my playing the pickups are rather touchy, so you need to pick with skill. the sound is most expressive probably with blues or metal. But last not least the coil tapping is great for mellow songs.
The sound is helps me get the classic rock sound. Or heavy metal sound, after all todays metal has such heavy sounds, but with the seymour duncans you can get a thick bass tone to your playing which I like.
The sound you can get from this is for anything from metal to the cleanest of tones. You can't go wrong with this. If you are into todays metal you may want the EMG pickups, while the seymour duncans are good for the modern metal, you may want something a little chunkier.
The best sounds are the mellow you get with the coil tapping. However the hard metal tones are good.
If you like mellow acoustic sounds from an electric guitar, any acoustic simulator works great with this. For heavy metal you can beef up the tone with some bass on your amp. Thats just my personal preference.
I don't play live or very loud cause I live in an apartment. I tend to use alot of distortion, it reminds of a gibson les paul studio guitar with the distortion. However the sharp response is better than a say a gibson les paul studio. Much sharper actually.
The metal sounds out of this(I use Digitech pedals) are pretty good, you get a sharp response, sustain is pretty good even at low volumes. Never forget to try metal tones with the bass on your amp settings, I happen to like it. As said before you can get great mellow sounds with the coil tapping.
Other than that the type of sound you prefer will be different form the sound I use. So if you like seymour duncans with a classic hard rock or heavy metal or blues, you should then try this. As said before the sharp response to my picking was what impressed me.
This guitar has coil tapping, great for mellowing out. The most useful features are the coil tapping as well as the seymour duncans. The frets are well done.
The least useful feature for some may be the weight of the guitar itself. The design is awesome, you get a maple covered mahogany body. Nice.
Ease of Use:
For me the ease of use was one reason that I choose Schecter. The neck is not thin but not thick. I'd say the neck is "medium thick".
This guitar is easy to play. If you want a classic metal versus modern metal sound you got it.
Great playability especially for chords and sweep picking. I really love to practice learning chords on any Schecter guitar.
Product is made well. The finish is great, no blemishes or scratches.
Is this product road worthy? I have no idea I play only at home. I would find this guitar reliable for live shows of course.
How long will this product last? Probably the same as any other guitar like ESP or Jackson.
Never had to deal with support.
I rate the value 8. About the same as an ESP.
The Wow Factor:
Oh she gets a 10. Great design. Love the maple covered body and the finish.
I would buy this guitar again if it was lost or stolen. I expect to keep this guitar until I need another one, no doubt.
I love the pickups, love the fretboard. Seymour deserves my money.
What I least like about this guitar is my Epiphone Les Paul Studio got better sustain with gibson pickups. However these pickups have better response. And also to say the quality is way better than the Epiphone.
