    Me too! Too bad a piece of koa like that can set you back $800+ these days, depending on the builder...

    Walnut can get into that same ballpark and is much for cost friendly. But Koa is beautiful IMHO, can’t argue with that.

    yeah if you want that kind of aesthetic walnut and brown stained flamed maple make good facsimiles. if you want that warmer sound that koa tends to impart AND the aesthetic for significantly less, go with tazzie blackwood or monkeypod.

    Why does it have 3 strap buttons?

    Tom Anderson always has done that, and Schecter stuck with it after Tom left.

    It makes the guitar more stable if you lean it against something and gives you some choices for how the neck might balance on a strap.

    Hmm... I guess everyone would use the upper button or would anyone prefer the lower one? I'd imagine this to make the neck dive ;-)
    Also, if you buy security locks for this thing, you have to buy two sets :lol:

    The Riot is one one Schecter's most underrated shapes.

    I'd like to add the Tempest to that list, mainly on the extended-range side of things...I would love to see another 7-string version of that, or even better yet (at least for my taste), a baritone version!

    I'll fight any nerd who doesn't like the Tempest body. I wish Schecter would give it more attention.
