    NGD - Roach content

    This actually got here last Thursday, but between work, testing it out, and me completely forgetting I was going to post this thread...

    So after some eBaying, a parcel appears. Brown cardboard, as post parcels are. Inside it, is this:

    A case. A nice hardshell Schecter case, but not very exciting.
    What's in it, though?

    A Schecter Jerry Horton signature Tempest. 2007, MIK. Parts of the internet claim there were only 200 of these made. This one's had a couple of mods done by previous owners - a set of Schaller-style straplocks, amber speed knobs and a set of Seymour Duncan Alnico 2 Pro pickups. The wallet damage? 270, including case and shipping.

    Here's the inlay. It's supposed to be a Koi...

    The Alnico 2s aren't as bad as I thought they'd be - they're hardly an ideal metal pickup, but they make a nice change from the ones in my other guitars and they sound great for hard rock, so they'll be staying for a while.

    It's kinda funny that I ended up with one of these, since the reason I got a Tempest in the first place years ago was seeing Jerry playing one in the video for Hollywood Whore and thinking it looked like a cool shape.

    One question for you guys: does anyone know if the screws used in Schaller straplocks are the same size as the Dunlop ones? I prefer the Dunlops so I'm planning on putting a set on this one as well, if I can get away with just screwing them in rather than having to fill the holes in first.

    beautiful guitar, I was expecting one of the first C-1 Jerry Horton sigs with the roach at the bottom of the guitar.

    That's actually really pretty.

    Also, the Alnico II Pros are one of my favorite neck pickups of all time. That's a serious score!
