    Yep, it gives me memories of those USA natural tinted guitars they made years ago

    No fancy figured tops, just bare badass wood.

    22 fret shapes just look better. Though I’m starting to come around to using 24 frets.

    Yeah, jamming 24 on something designed for less tends to look "off".

    I do like having 24 though.

    I go back and forth on whether I actually need or want 24 frets. Most of the time I'd rather have those 2 extra frets than not have them.
    It's too bad only japan gets cool stuff like this:

    ^totally. 24 fret shapes often look like "too much". That's the main reason why I don't have half a dozen of Jackson PC-1 in my room.

    Yes. Those late 90s and early 2000s Schecter and ESPs. The LTDs had some nice finishes. The 100 series was solid black or metallic red or blue. The 200 series was solid black or transparent red or blue over an Ash body. No puke bursts over burly spalted rot wood veneers with gaudy ass quadruple plastic abalone binding and grotesque inlays. Ibanez was making good shit during that time as well.

    Even the old Diamond Series stuff was beautiful IMHO

    I really like the old headstocks also.

    My old A7+ has a reversed 1+6 headstock, fits the body style well.

    Schecter needs to bring that headstock back. Looks better than the ESP Forest headstock they use.

    I think I spent $200 on that, and it’s truly one of the nicest guitars I’ve ever had. Plays and sustains extremely well.

    I used to grab all the C7s and A7s. They were like $150 and played just as good as most RG7421s and RG7621s. Every now and then you'd find a cool color one too.

    I think that's why I really didn't like Schecter for a long time. They went from making these to those gaudy, plasticy, heavy ugly things.

    I am going to order one of those USA Schecter Sunset Standards in that Guitar Center run. They look like sweet guitars and I have a good buddy who works at GC who will get me one in.
