Post so I bought a new guitar. . .
Haven't played in 18 years due to a back injury. Seeing the G3 tour in January re-ignited the flame. I was going to go for a Jackson PC1 but shelling out 3 grand is a lot, even if they are amazing instruments.

Instead I went with the Schecter C1 with the sustaniac feature I like so much on the PC1.

Hopefully it'll arrive by the end of the week and fingers crossed my back can take it.

Very nice! Those are sweet guitars. I've thought about picking one up a few times. Have fun!

Very nice! I have a Blackjack ATX C-7 and I had a Hellraiser C-7 until a few weeks ago when I traded it. Korean Schecters are near-Japan quality instruments. Even their Indo offerings tend to be pretty good.

This guitar looks amazing, especially I like the juicy color.
Is it painting on order?Or is it native?
Thanks.

Nah that one's made by WMI in Korea. All the higher end Diamond series Schecters are. I believe it's a series that came out somewhere around 2013-2015, I remember their release pretty well, just not exactly sure what year it was.

They do have a US custom shop (again now, as of a few years ago) as well as a Japan-market series of MIJ models, but those look different (and cost waaaay more).

If it was the US one, he'd be shelling out close to 3 grand as he said he didn't want to do for the Jackson.

Yeah, the Diamonds are made in South Korea, then shipped to the US Custom shop for a quality check before going out to retailers.

I'm considering dumping the active EMG for a Dimarzio super distortion.

Here's how it sounds. I'm maybe 75% as a player from the good old days. With the back and shoulder injury I can pretty much say goodbye to anything fast :(

Just picked up a mint Epi SG-400 for $250 on Kijiji. I’m quite enjoying it.

Great score! The first guitar I bought was an Epi SG-400 as well (and also from Kijiji :lol:). I love that fucking thing, man. Fantastic guitar.
