Not that great after all
ReportSchecter, 06.04.2020
First of all, delivery time for the guitar was 1 month.

USE: 1 month.

CONS: When the guitar arrived it had 9 gauge strings on it, it was all buzzing. Unplayable. Beautiful but unplayable. Changed strings to 10 gauge and started messing around with the neck and the bridge in order to get rid of all the buzzing. Still haven't found the sweet spot. Also, the guitar has 1 or 2 dead notes. Not the best neck in my opinion. Also the guitar has some minor paint and structural flaws here and there.

PROS: Fishman Fluents are a great pair of magnets. Love them. The frets feel nice in bends and slides. The neck also feels very nice. The guitar body is amazing. It has great sustain. Hardware seem of solid quality no complaints.

Overall, this is a awesome looking, just beautiful guitar with lots of good features but when you pay that amount of money you except a certain quality. In my case, quality did not meet my expectations, at least not out of the factory. If I could I would return it but now I'll just pay a little extra money to get it to play great from an expert.

Fantastische Gitarre, aber...
Amalia_band , 06.05.2020
...warum in aller Welt verlässt sich man sich bei den Big Names immer wieder darauf, dass schon alles irgendwie läuft, solange das Angebot konkurrenzfähig ist, statt einfach mal konsistente Qualität in einem Preissegment zu liefern, das dieselbe verdient. Bevor ich jedoch meine Abhandlung beginne, gibt es hier die Kurzfassung.

PRO:
-episches Finish, gutes Holz und overall vernünftige Lackierung
-Top Hardware, Edelstahlbünde, etc.
-Wahnsinnssound(s), zu den Fishman Fluence PUs muss eigentlich nichts gesagt werden
-meine wiegt nur knapp über 3kg und ist sehr angenehm am Gurt zu tragen
-der durchgängige Hals, die Korpusflügel aus Sumpfesche, wirklich zu schön um wahr zu sein
-andere Gitarren mit diesen Specs liegen gerne mal bei 2k

CONTRA:
-Verarbeitungsmängel

Da sind wir auch schon wieder beim Punkt. Ich habe ebenfalls die nah verwandte SLS Elite C-7 und auch dort musste ich nachbessern, was die Bespielbarkeit angeht (Abrunden der Bundkanten, Abrichtung der Bünde für optimale Saitenlage). Und auch dort habe ich minimale Fails entdeckt, sei es eine mikroskopische Ungenauigkeit am Binding, ein nur fast perfekter Übergang der Deckenlackierung zu Hals und Griffbrett, ein winziger Kleberest am Sattel. Ich sage es, wie es ist: Die Gitarre ist trotzdem ein Traum, aber einer, der bei jemandem mit hohen Ansprüchen nach der Ankunft erstmal gewartet werden muss. Schecter ist hier keine Ausnahme. Trotzdem nervt das. Ich sehe in dieser causa zwei Möglichkeiten: Entweder die Big Names sorgen dafür, dass die Bretter insgesamt mit besserer Quote aus den asiatischen Produktionsstätten kommen (FGN kriegt das in Japan für 800 Flocken hin) oder aber es wird beim Qualitätscheck in den USA mal ne Stunde länger das Bundstäbchen poliert, sodass ich dem Gitarrenbaumeister meines Vertrauens vielleicht zur Abwechslung eine kreative Arbeit vorschlagen kann.

FAZIT: Extrem geil und preislich selbst mit Eigeninvestition noch deutlich unter Customshopniveau, für Perfektion ist die allerdings auch notwendig.

Une guitare métal mais pas que
AlaricF, 26.05.2020
Cette guitare est un monstre

Sur le papier, vous avez la guitare la plus évoluée et la mieux équipée dans ce budget.

Esthétique

Schecter ne se moque pas de nous et non content de faire une finition bois brut sur le manche et l'arrière de la guitare, nous fait un magnifique vernis (quoiqu'un peu trop fin à mon gout) sur la table flammée.

Equipement/sonorité

Les micros Fishman sont d'une violence extrème lorsqu'on joue du Death, black ou autre métal. J'ai même été obligé de descendre le gain de mon son qui est pourtant réglé sur de l'EMG. Là on est au dessus et le push/pull voice (de série SVP!!!) permet de réduire les niveaux pour du clean, blues voir funk.
Mais clairement, cette guitare est conçue pour du métal bien lourd et violent avec des riffs précis et techniques.

Confort/utilisation

J'ai vraiment été inquiet sur le profil de manche et.... c'est une autoroute! shred, sweep... rien ne lui fait, c'est un vrai plaisir. Le touché est génial et agréable, l'accès aux aigues ultra confort et l'instrument est assez léger pour passer des heures en session recording home studio.

Achetez, c'est vraiment top!

Petit bémol sur la livraison UPS EXPRESS, A NE PAS PRENDRE! Le carton est arrivé abimé et pas dans les temps (avec un jour férié mais quand même). UPS a mis 8H pour prendre en charge mon colis... pour une livraison de 24H... j'ai du attendre 3 jours avec le week end. Heureusement, thomann a réagit et m'a remboursé le surplus sans discuter!
Toujours aussi pro!

Gran guitarra con gran sonido pero sin control de calidad.
Tasman, 23.10.2018
Para empezar, quiero aclarar que es la segunda guitarra de este modelo que compro, la primera tuve que devolverla ya que las vetas de nogal que recorren el mástil tenían los poros tan pronunciados que se hacía desagradable deslizar el dedo pulgar por ellos. En este sentido no tuve ningún problema con Thomann para que me hicieran la devolución. A pesar de la decepción que me llevé al ver que Schecter no había tenido el cuidado necesario en una parte tan importante de la guitarra, decidí darles una oportunidad y me arriesgué a repetir el pedido. Estas son mis valoraciones:
PROS:
- Estética impresionante, bajo mi punto de vista es una guitarra elegante y a la vez agresiva. La parte trasera es tan bonita y agradable al tacto que aveces me gustaría poder tocarla al revés.
- Las pastillas Fishman suenan increíble y son muy versátiles.
- Los trastes de acero inoxidable son una gozada y el acabado muy bueno.
- Los potes y la palanca de cambio de pastillas son precisos, no tienen juego ni hacen ruidos raros.
- El mástil con diferentes grosores y con un tacto super rápido es lo mas cómodo que he probado nunca. Acostumbrado a los lacados, este es una delicia.
CONTRAS:
- Vuelvo a tener problemas en el mástil. Esta vez las vetas de nogal vienen mucho mejor, con muchos menos poros y muy bien pulidos, pero a la altura del traste 12 parece como si hubiesen puesto más barniz de la cuenta o no lo hubieran lijado bien, pero el caso es que, en esa zona (de aproximadamente 2 cm), el dedo pulgar no se desliza bien y se queda ligeramente retenido. Decidí no devolverla de nuevo porque me encanta la guitarra y creo que un luthier no tendrá problemas de dejarla fina, pero decepcionado de nuevo con el control de calidad.
- Las clavijas de Schecter no mantienen muy bien la afinación. Estamos hablando de muy poco y probablemente les estoy exigiendo demasiado para ser una guitarra de puente fijo y con un mástil tan delgado.
- El lacado de la tapa merece una mención especial. La primera guitarra que compré tenia unos colores muy bonitos y una degradación del negro al color madera muy logrado, en cambio en esta no se han esmerado demasiado con ese detalle (con todo y con eso la guitarra se ve muy bien). Por otro lado, la zona mas oscura tiene un acabado muy fino y muy suave al tacto, en cambio cuando llegas a la zona clara, sobretodo en los cuernos (donde mas claro es), el tacto es ligeramente mas áspero.
CONCLUSIÓN:
Estamos ante una guitarra enorme, que suena espectacular y con una estética que no pasa desapercibida, pero en mi modesta opinión, deberían despedir al pintor y al que se encarga del control de calidad, el mástil es demasiado importante como para que den por buenas unas vetas plagadas de poros y un un barniz sin pulir.
PD: Cuidado con las fotos que tiene Thomann y las de la web de Schecter, porque distan mucho de la realidad. Mi consejo es que veáis las fotos que cuelgan los usuarios en internet para que os hagáis una idea mas realista sobre el color de la guitarra.
