    Really looking great. Love the idea of a match set. I had a 6/7 string TAG pair for a while but sold them because I’m dumb.

    That natural multi scale is lovely...wish I hadn't got a new backup 7 to my Mayones recently, otherwise I'd be all over it.

    Eek. Should just use a solid finish.

    That purple burst is arousing.

    those look like they took bad photo print tops and then added the bursts over em. if they were just the burst colors it'd prob look better.

    No idea if that's a photo finish or a real veneer honestly.

    Schecter is usually pretty good about indicating that, on the C-6 Plus models it states Quilted Maple Image, I imagine its at least a veneer

    It reminds me of those old shitty 70s guitars that have the shitty """"maple"""" tops.

    I just hope they didn't decide to stick with cheaper materiarls (assuming these veneeres/photoflames and the finishing process IS cheaper, which is something I don't know) and move the production to indonesia to gain more profits at expense of players. Not their style at all, but you never know...

    Man, that's to the point I would rather have a plain top or a solid color.

    Mind you, they also upgrade the floyd to a 1500 instead of a hot rodded special, one has an ebony board instead of rosewood, they probably had to move production to indonesia to keep it at that pricepoint, the EMG Retro Actives are not cheap pickups either
