Teletaka-OB, 23.10.2018
First of all, I'm just a hobby player and not a pro. In addition to Schecter Banshee, which was acquired almost 3 months ago, I own a Fender Standard Telecaster, made in Mexico and a Squire Classic Vibe 50th Strat. (With both way, very satisfied) A comparison to really expensive and high quality guitars I can not pull.

Now to the Schecter Banshee, in search of a Power Strat and watching several videos my choice fell on the Banshee, also because of the low price of around 500 Euro, so ordered.

From Thomann (as always) the guitar was delivered quickly and well packaged. Unfortunately, Thomann did not comply with my wish to adjust the guitar optimally, unfortunately for the second time. (On my complaining Thomann has come to meet me but with a goods voucher, thumbs up !!!)

optics:
Of course this is always a joke thing, but I think the finish of the guitar is awesome, even with a close look to find no errors in color and paint.
features:
Sound and volume controls react very smoothly and sensitively, due to the split humbucker multiple sound possibilities. The 5-way switch snaps neatly, though not as crisp as my fender. Tuners also work well. The neck profile is fantastic, as is the fingerboard.
Processing:
Which is essentially good, but unfortunately not everything. If you pull up the tone control (ie use the split function of the humbucker), the control is not so taut and tends to misalign.
Between the 12th and 17th frets, the strings, especially the G string, have a slight "sitar effect". This could not be corrected by optimized setting by my luthier. The reason for this may not be properly aligned frets. In the delivery state, the string position was a bit too high for me.
sound:
The guitar was factory delivered with Ernie Ball 2221 (10-46), which fits well with the character of the guitar. Very full bass without neglecting the highs. Already played clean sounds the guitar slightly "crunchy", which suggests one thing, for which the guitar was actually built. It covers a diverse sound spectrum due to the 5-way switch and the split humbucker. Clean and slightly crunchy played, she lacks the pearly sound of a Strat, the strengths of the Banshee are in the rocking area, but I wanted to have them too and they can really good for my claims. The output of the PU's certainly can not compete with the higher-quality guitars, but for a guitar that costs around 500 euros, all caution!
Conclusion:
After being set up by my luthier, it's an incredibly light and easy-to-play guitar that makes fast riffs and solos easy on the hand. For 500 euros a really good sound, but unfortunately suffers from the processing defects (sitar effect). That's why with sound, processing and overall rating only 4 stars.
Nevertheless I do not want to give it anymore ...
