Re: NGD: 8 Strings!!!

Best guitars in existence is a bit subjective, but Schecters are nice. Congrats with the 8 string!

Re: NGD: 8 Strings!!!

Those are really nice ones! I played a simpler satin finished Schecter 8 string and that thing was perfect all around.

Re: NGD: 8 Strings!!!

...this is the best guitar in existence?

coming from someone that has owned how many ridiculously amazing instruments, I find this extremely surprising.

I don't think that there is any "best" out there but in the used market, dollar for dollar, Schecter is definitely one of the best. I used to think they were only metal guitars but that company actually has a lineup as deep and interesting as Ibanez. Ducks! But with the rather shallow offerings of PRS, Fender, and Gibson, both Schecter and Ibanez are spread out evenly over more territory and do everything quite well from bolt-ons to set necks to neck through body builds. Schecter (and Ibanez) is more than just a few Duncan and EMG powered six string Floyded out superstrats for those not in the know.

Re: NGD: 8 Strings!!!

awesome axe, its beautiful, HNGD man, congrats and enjoy it with health....I love 8 strings (especially the 2228, which is arguably the best 8 string)

Re: NGD: 8 Strings!!!

HNGD, really dig the color. As far as the best... have you ever played a 2228a (a for dActivators)??

Totally not bashing your guitar, but what is that inlay about?? What is it even supposed to be? Who decides the inlays for Schecter and how in the world was he ever chosen for that position?? Do you actually like that inlay?

also-- Three knobs? What do they do? Individual tone knobs for both the neck and the bridge? +1 volume? Is that standard on those guitars? Does my post have enough question marks?

Re: NGD: 8 Strings!!!

I dont know, Schecter aesthetics are so stupid 90% of the time.

One knob is vol for neck, another vol bridge and another for tone.
