    Gotta say, I just played one of those Sun Valley Super Shredders today, specifically the seafoam green one.

    For the price, you're practically stealing that guitar. It's insanely good. It's definitely going for that Charvel style, and I can attest that I think it's beaten just about any Made In Mexico San Dimas I've ever played, and it's not as expensive! Same concept, but in my opinion, better made.

    If you're considering one of these, get it. You won't regret it. I'm sitting here contemplating how I'm gonna be able to get one myself :lol:

    Schecter is an awesome company and their USA Lineup is incredible. Good people, great service, awesome guitars.

    I have been hoping for a hard tail version of the Sun Valley. Maybe this NAMM will have answers.

    If that existed, I would REALLY be intrigued then.

    Though I really need a guitar now with an all around good Floyd on it. All the trem guitars I have either have a crappy licensed version or only go downward and not up.

    We shall see...

    Seen Edguy yesterday, Jens Ludwig made an amazing performance with the E-I, great heavy sounds, and the guitar looked spectacular.

    Well unfortunately the VS from 2001 will be returned tomorrow. The Wilkinson post are angled in the wood pretty bad creating ovals and one is actually split through the body. I'll upload some pics so at least there will be something since I haven't been able to find anything on them other than the catalogue. Super bummed because it had potential.

    A friedn of mine has one, and regularly gigs with it. Plays great, though the stock pickups are nothing special

    Just got a Schecter custom shop Sunset 7 in the other day. Thing SLAYS! The jump between diamond series and custom shop is unbelievable because Diamond series is already really good. NGD Thread soon!

    Posting such things without including pics is shameful.
