Mr. Paint, Juke99 and a few others on this board who are in the know ... This guitar is the best thing I've ever come across. It sounds great and looks awesome! If you have a music store in your area check it out. I will own this bad boy in a couple of weeks. Don't drool too much, ok? http://www.schecterguitars.com/spec.asp?id=4# Click on the guitar and enlarge this beauty ... you have to see this thing! AND it sounds twices as good as it looks. Truley the best guitar I have ever seen at this price. Sure, you can match it, but you'll pay 3 grand for it. I'm in awe here.
