    I was just looking at one of these PT Apocalypse guitars on the used market last week, and I was thinking about cutting a deal for it, doing some mods to it, and "Mad Max"-ing it out. There just doesn't seem to be many players around the internet who got their hands on one and/or left a review anywhere. Thanks for the words on it, KnightBrolaire.

    As long as there are no trademark issues, I’d bet it’ll be fine.

    I asked for some somewhat unusual things, and they didn’t bat an eye other than to just ask some thoughtful follow up questions to make sure we were on the same page.

    It wasn’t anything like a new body shape, but as long as you can clearly communicate what you want, I’ll bet they’ll do it.

    It's no trademark issue, they can litterally make anything. Problem is that going custom shape means masterwork prices

    Depending on the specs around 4-5-6k. But you can ask litterally anything

    The masterworks tool on the Schecter website can give you an idea of the MSRP, and a dealer will discount down from that by the typical amount.

    ^ That one is rather sweet. Don't they have a series exclusive to Japan that looks like that? Or am I making that up?

    Sadly not a fan looks a bit like a legator or a Chinese fake schecter.

    Ditch the ugly wood for a solid color and I'd be on it.

    In that shadow over there -->
    With that being Fishman Fluence pickups, is it just me or does that feel oddly similar to or reminiscent of the Keith Merrow imports slated for later this year???

    It better not be, it looks like a Chinese knockoff, of a km3.

    Maybe it is the cheapo Chinese MkIII? The pickups don't look like regular fisherman's. The inlays are plain plastic. Generic bridge. Horns are not as pointy.

    The fishmans will be the open core ones Keith uses, they'll be trying different bobbins for cost probably.

    It makes me think it isn't Keiths due to the shape, though I think that line would look better with different tops or a solid colour. I like what they're going for, good pickups, cool fretboards they're using wenge on those ones. You would just upgrade the bridge and tuners yourself properly which is sometimes cheaper than upgrading pups.
