Straight to the local luthier.
Kurtez, 15.06.2021
Don' t get me wrong, this guitar is great, but ...

Good stuff:
It is a thing of beauty. Well made in general, looks more expensive then it actually is. Pickups are cool, body is finished beautifully, intonation and action set pretty good too, the neck is magic ....

The bad (annoying) stuff:
... until you use that neck more then five times. The damned thing doesn't have any finish. Any. I consider myself a very clean person, i cannot touch a guitar without washing my hands first, but the neck fretboard and back started to turn black after just a two gigs.
I am all in for the vintage feel and look, but i got the feeling, that if this was not fixed, the guitars neck would look 40 years old in a year. Neglected for 40 years neck, rather then worn, nice vintage use look. The neck was also absorbing all the oils possible from the palm and cleaning attempts.

I looked everywhere for the solution and found out that no amount of 000 steel wool cannot fix the problem permanently. Whatever you do, don't believe the lemon (or any other) oil nonsense advice found online. I am so glad I didn't apply any of it, because it would ruin the neck forever.

Anyway, I invested in a proper finish and now the guitar is awesome.

Just take that 150 - 300 eur extra in account when you buy it.
1100 is still a bargain for a piece like this.

Très bonne guitare
Bizmush, 26.07.2019
Plutôt bien réussi dans l’ensemble.

Les plus :

Le manche est excellent, les frettes n'accrochent pas et le glisse est au rendez vous. La prise en main est instantané parfait pour les amateur de shred.
L'accastillage est plutôt bon, le floyd fait son job mais a besoin d'être rodé au début. Les corde montées de base sur la gratte s'usent très vite et forcement l'ensemble perd vite l'accord mais après la monte d'un jeu de correct (Ernie ball 2223 pour ma part) plus de soucis.
La configuration des micro permet de jouer du heavy métal sans problème les TB6 on un très bon niveau de sortie. Harmoniques au top, disto incisive et très réactive ça ne bave pas bref agréablement surpris. De plus couplé au SH6N qui ne sont plus à présenté c'est que du bonheur !

Les moins :

La guitare est arriver avec un manche plein de nervure immonde et des trace noire donc renvoie en SAV. L'échange a été fait en 3 joursexcelent job de thomann.
La peinture comporte des petit défaut si on met le nez dessus et les las défonce du floyd et de la trap arrière ne sont pas tip top (sur les 2 guitares reçu) et les capot des micros sont fendiller quand on regarde de près mais ça reste du détail.

Schmatziger Sound von fleischigem Hals
Spongus, 05.08.2019
Ich hatte die Charvel zusammen mit der Schecter Sun Valley Super Shredder FR bestellt.

Gut an der Charvel:

+ Sehr saftiger, schmatzender, aber doch offener Sound vom Bridge-PU
(Die Schecter ist hier fokussierter, aber auch klinischer)

+ Schön singend vor auf dem Neck-PU, auch weil der dank "nur" 22 statt 24 Bünden weiter an der Saitenmitte liegt und voller klingen kann.
(Die Schecter überzeugt hier mit flachenm Sound eher nicht.)

+ Sehr glatter, angenehmer Hals, aber recht fleischig, etwa wie bei meiner Fender Deluxe Mexi-Strat. Das hätte ich bei so einer Shreddergitarre nicht erwartet. Ich hab mal ne ProMod SD gespielt, bei der ich den Hals dünner in Erinnerung habe.
(Die Schecter ist dagegen göttlich. Man spielt sofort viel lockerer als auf ner Paula oder ähnlichem mit eher fleischigem, lackiertem Hals)

+ Coil splitting möglich
(Nicht bei der Schecter)

+ Das Floyd Rose ist stimmstabil.
(Wie bei der Schecter)

Nicht so gut:

- Halsansatz sehr klotzig, eckig, dick, unkomfortabel. Ab dem 17. Bund tut man sich weh.
(Bei der Schecter ist alles viel flacher, runder, einfach toll, hier kommt man ohne Probleme bis zum 24. Bund)

- Damit der geschraubte Vibratohebel nicht stark wackelt, muss man die Schraube recht fest anziehen, wodurch er sehr schwergängig wird.
(Die Schecter hat einen gesteckten Hebel mit Madenschraube, was viel besser funktioniert)

- An der Halsrückseite war höhe 7. Bund eine deutlich spürbare Lacknase.
(Die Schecter war absolut fehlerfrei)

- Ab Werk schlecht eingestellt.
(Die Schecter musste ich mit den Feintunern etwas nachstimmen und los ging's. Auch sehr gute Saitenlage.)

- Zwei Potis: Master Volume und Master Tone. Man kann die Lautstätke der beiden PUs also nicht unterschiedlich einstellen. Tonregler ist bei mir immer offen, den brauche ich nicht.
(Die Schecter hat zwei Volume-Potis und keinen Tone-Regler)
Behalten habe ich die Schecter.
