Schecter XXX to adjust...


Nik did it again! ;) He bought yet another guitar for me to mess around with. This time, though, I am not sure how much I'll be able to help him. The overall playability of the instrument is excellent and needs very little work. It will need a new nut (which I don't do), and it has a really bad chunk that's been taken out of lower horn on the back. Since Nik only paid $200 for this guitar used, I am not sure if it's worth getting the damage repaired professionally, especially if it costs nearly as much or equal to what he paid for it. We are going to have it looked at by a local luthier to get an estimate.

But as far as a cool guitar that sounds and plays good, this one is a winner. The loser that owned it before Nik was obviously of the younger generation of hack "guitar players" that tune everything down 5 steps and "single finger" chord all the rhythm parts. :) There is zero fret wear on this thing because no lead was ever played on it! Sad for the loser, great for my buddy Nik!

    Hell, I would give him 200 just for the neck to put on my Damien FR

  2. Well, it's a neck-through body design, so the neck caould have been removed. ;)
