    That fretwork looks nice. So is this an upcoming production model or a prototype or what?

    It's a prototype but I suspect it'll go into production as they expand the SVSS series to include a PT and (hopefully) some hardtail models next year.

    that sunburst Tempest back a page was gorgeous, and love that Rig with 5153 and Orange cab, should get some good growls with that new PT.

    I have crazy gas for one of those purple explorers with the Floyd, I've kind of gone nuts on the rig this year though so would be tough to go all in for it at the moment :(

    So far I've been having an incredible time with it. It just really feels like a quality instrument and has a weight to it that I love. The fishmans sound great in it as well.

    I love the fretwork on this thing. It's honestly noticeably better than the fretwork of an Ibanez Prestige of mine. I contacted Schecter and to my knowledge (I could have misread the message) this exact model will not become a production line but starting next year they are going to be doing a bunch of new PT models

    It sounds killer, I'm really stoked on this purchase haha

    The fretwork looks great, no doubt, but even better than a Prestige? That's very cool! Looks like a really enjoyable piece of gear!
    This is something I like about Schecter, they make a good number of protos and limited-trial instruments, and while it's sad if they don't get into full production, if you're lucky one to get one it feels like having a very exclusive-rare thing.


    I'd have loaded one with the Sunset strip tho

    Don't put much hope in it, Schecter have a very bad habit of prototyping stuff and never releasing it. DCGL just buy up all the prototypes....and fuel my gas.

    No it's even better because it has the correct number of frets!

    I've been thinking about getting another Flying V but man, I've been thinking about getting an E-1 in black as well. Hard to decide.

    A lil more blond-ish would be great!

    Still lovely flamed amber tho, with uncovered doublecream pickups it would really be tempting

    Just bought a Diamond-VS from 2001-02. Idk why but I've been on the hunt for something from their early days. Hopefully it will be here by the end of the week.

    Of course Zado. I still need to do a ngd for my banshee elite, probably will just combine the two. Been non existent from the forum for a little bit.
