    I like the idea of all black tele but not in that finish . It also needs a pick guard . The rest sure is nice

    Oh no , no pick guards ever . Lol To each his own South Park. Lol The only thing I don’t think I can get past is the jumbo frets and wide broad radius .

    I bought a Schecter Strat that is made very nice, nothing on it needed to be changed. The wenge neck and ebony finger board are great, pu's are just right, hardware is top notch, really nice instrument. It's the best Strat type guitar I found, the Suhr was very nice as well. I bought this as a demo from Sweetwater for $1900. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/de...nature-nick-johnston-traditional-atomic-green

    Those sunset shredders are pretty slick looking/playing guitars, if I wasn't already loaded with guitars I'd probably nab one of those.

    Offset fret markers throw me into fits of rage. But that's my problem. :)

    I demand aesthetic symmetry on my axes.

    I had that Custom Run E1 Snow Leopard from Sweetwater- I got it for a ridiculously low amount of money when they had blown them out, and then dropped prices further and marked them all as demos- a few gift cards for XMAS and I barely had $200 in the thing.

    The USA Super Rock VIntage pickups were amazing. Fretwork was as good as any $4K guitar I've owned. The guitar played extremely well, sounded nice amplified. Stayed in tune wonderfully (Ernie ball comped nut, locking tuners, tonepros bridge/tp) But I need 2V controls at least. I've had a ton of Explorers, Destroyers, MLs, Z, and my first Gibson was an Explorer. The Schecter compared favorably in playability. But it was coated in about 1/8 of plastic. I moved a strap button and you could see it- and it was definitely not "mahogany" wood for the body. White as a sheet.

    I gave it to my son as I couldn't deal with the lack of 2 volumes and he loves it for his 3 chord bashing. It got another ding and the finish cracked like an eggshell and one big chunk came off. You can press on the wood with your finger and make an impression. Typical cheap soft garbage "Mystery mahogany" they use in Asian builds (barring Japan).

    Nice player, totally not worth the original asking price, but alot better than say your typical Epi or Dean 79 series Explorer types. I'd rather see a better quality wood and thinner finish for that kind of $ and drop things like the comp nut, locking tuners, which aren't a necessity if the nut is cut right to begin with.

    here she is...
