So, one of the bands we played with last night, their guitarist was playing a Schecter Hellraiser C-7. He had the white one, it was white everywhere it's supposed to be, except the face of the headstock, which was black.
Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't these used to have a matching headstock? Why on earth did they change? It's not like they're bolt-ons and they could just make one neck for everything. The back of the neck and headstock was white like the body. Why paint just the face of the headstock? According to the website, some of them (the V notably) still have matching headstocks in all finishes, but a bunch of the white ones now have black headstocks.
That's kind of dumb. It looks cheaper, and I don't even see the potential cost-savings--unlike with the Ibanez RG1527M, where Ibanez can just use the same black overlay on all the 1527s. I presume the overlay that Schecter uses is clear, since their setnecks have long had matching headstocks.
