There are times in your life that some things make you grin like a 6year old kid in xmas time when you recieve that toy you've always wanted since you saw it in some store... today, that kid is me. I therefore call this day... New Schecter Day.:chris: First impressions: When i opened the box... it was like a choir of angels in my head *awww* seriously! when i picked it up, felt so good, this thing is a masterpiece! must be one of the most beautiful guitars in the market! forget the pics, this is something you MUST see personaly! I was some worried because i ordered this guitar from germany (i live in portugal) so i was like "what if it comes broken or something like that? what if the neck is thick?" so it was a REAL relief to see that she is alright... and the neck is PERFECT for me! Well, time to THRASH up a bit =P stay well people! CHEERS!
