    Not to beat a dead horse, but you say you want super strat type guitar, the Jackson is what you need!!

    I got a sweet deal on a banshee elite 8 prototype on ebay, or else I would have this orange beast in my stable right now as it's so slick.

    Yep, not bad. Wonder hop it's neck feels and plays compared to the slicker/speedy Ibanez or Schecter necks. But maybe I will go a bit higher in price, cause both of the Banshee Elites look very seemly (i faw the natural look), but their new (and only) 7 string multiscale looks even more nicer. It's been mentioned in the Thread before, that there might be an 8 string version coming out, and if they will stick to this design, I guess it will be just perfect for my taste. Tho' I wonder if they actually would, guess they don't have much headroom for the pickup selection as it would be a 8 String FF and thus needs 9 string guitar pups. Hope it will happen anyways...

    More than happy with my Schecter C-8 Deluxe. Set it up, put D'Activators in it, NYXL 9-80s on and it sounds and plays so well.
