Was waiting for this from another vendor for almost a year but bad customer service. Found this while searching one of samash stores online and and called the store (I don't do paypal). The young man at Jacksonville store had to get in touch with someone to make the online sale to me. Early the next day (Monday) he called me back and said it would ship Tuesday which DID happen unlike another brick and mortar online chain. I was shocked when guitar arrived Thursday afternoon, Jacksonville alot farther tha Kansas city where other ships from and they take a least a week. Ok enough about 7 star customer service I received from Samash. The quality of just the build is outstanding, a few "other" makers should take a lesson from Schecter, all the upgrades have already been done and still cost less. The pickups sound great and when I use coil split volume doesn't drop near as much as other guitars. Awesome guitar Schecter you now have a new to Schecter fan. I don't really understand way ya'll discontinued this model.
