I Love This Guitar! It's Excellent with the feel, the sound, sensitivity to touch (of the strings when playing) great quality in make and it's a beauty to the eye. Most importantly, the pick-up switch and the sound knobs do get in the way as they do on a previous Schecter 6 String Solid-Body Electric Guitar Black Cherry Burst (1995) that I'd bought and had to return because my hand just couldn't get around that pick-up switch. Kept bumping into it as I played. Oh Yeah, this guitar is The Bomb! I Highly recommend it! And, thanks Sam Ash for a no hassle return on the previous Schecter!
