It’s an obvious take on the plates like Blackmachine uses, and Blackmachine uses non-recessed hex head screws to hold it on. Maybe that’s what Schecter should use too if they can’t recess the screws (the hex heads at least won’t snag anything). To me it’s sloppy looking and you should not see sloppy looking things on a $5k guitar. If the body is too thin to properly execute a useless cosmetic feature: the better course is to NOT DO IT. At least to me. That said, it wouldn’t stop me from buying one if I otherwise liked the guitar specs. It’s just not a big deal.
