    NGD : never say never.

    Never say never!

    This one I had to wait 8 weeks before I received it. Why? I had to "special order" it from the U.S. as it is a limited run and not availble in Canada.
    So much wait that the GAS had time to go away.


    I'm NOT the type to wait 2 years for a guitar.
    Went to pick it up at the store anyway...

    It goes without saying, I never thought i'd own a Schecter in my life. Tried many, never cared for them. BUT this one caught my eyes a while ago... LOVED the way it looks. And honestly, it's the only V they make that I care about. I wanted a "classic" looking one, without going Gibson.
    I also wanted to get a TOM equiped guitar again, even if I can't stand them when they're at a really high angle. Not the case here (an LP wich is not an LP 'cause I don't find the shape to be confortable... I am Mr. Contradiction). It will be replacing the PH600 I just sold. Completely different guitar.

    It'S SO light and resonant. Sustain last for days. And yes, the neck dives...
    And i'm so not used to play a V! lol Never owned one... But damn, it is SO confortable to play standing up.
    It really is a riff-inspiring machine. Surprisingly confortable and really-not-fat-at-all neck!

    Time will tell if it's a keeper, but for now, it sure is a lot of fun to play!

    Fuck yeah dude, practically the black version of mine! (I've got a V-1 Classic, Korena)

    The guitar has been up for sale for ages now, and it's not selling, so I've been forced to sort of find my way with it. And now, I sort of don't want to sell it. I've just come back from band practice tonight, ripping it through my 6534+ and it really is a tone machine, and a riff machine! Can't stop riffing on it, it's fucking great.

    It does neck dive quite a bit, yeah, not like modern V's (Jackson/ESP) where they almost body-dive if anything (which is why I love them so much), and it can be a bit of a pain sometimes but it's not a huge issue. I think it's where the strap-pin is situated more than anything.

    Anyway, nice score dude!

    Archambault! Love that store.
