    I want to drop a Kahler on the M1008MS sooo bad.

    I like its fan (25.5-27) better than the prototype Schecter fan (26.5-28? I think). And it's a flat top for my Kahler. Must. Dive. Bomb.

    27 is the bare minimum for an 8, and I think even that is stretching it for my preference. I think the 26.5 to 28 is ideal, though I wouldn't mind 25.5 to 28.

    I probably wouldn't use the 8th string very much (I barely use the 7th string), so 27" would be ok. I just can't abide having a 26.5" high e in standard tuning.

    Does Stephen Carpenter still play 6 strings? Or use Seymour Duncans? Or neck pickups?

    that SC-20 has me confused, it looks like his sig from 10 years ago. Not complaining because I really like how it looks, and passive HHS looks cooler to me than HHx.

    Also like the look of those multiscales, though I'm generally not super interested in multiscales as I'm happy with 25.5" straight scale for my 7's.


    also, that pink M200. maple plz.

    Like that SN-1000 HT. There's just too few Strats with hardtails out there...

    What I don't understand is, why do they have a JB in the bridge of the SC-20 but then two not so great pickups in the other positions?

    Ah, that makes sense. Hell, I might pick it up, but there's a few things on this list that I want.
    Also, on some of the other guitars like the purple horizon, are those SD Blackened Winters in those as well?

    I think I remember reading somewhere that he only chose that pickup configuration because he thought it looked cool
