I think its Schecter...

I don't have one, but they are great guitars for the money. Try to find out what they cost new, but that sounds like a fair price. If you like it that much it sounds like a good buy.

have the guy tune it exactly for you, then play it up past the seventh fret. i can guarantee it won't stay in tune. schecters tend to have a real problem with that... for the same price or not much more you can get a better guitar. shop around a bit more.

The one I played on I had always admired from a distance cos it looks awesome but I just didn't like the feel of it... the weight distribution seemed totally out of whack... the body was way too heavy for the neck or something. It just didn't feel right to me, lol.

Schecters are great for the budget rockers in my opinion. I would get the model # and check the street price. Depending on the shape and age of the guitar, it should be anywhere from 1/2 to 2/3 of the street price. Hope it works out for you!

hmmm...I play chords on my Schecter up past the twelfth fret and I don't have problems with it. I do have problems with it going out of tune, but that's because my strings tend to be a month older than is healthy. But Schecters really are great guitars.

However, for a used one, I don't know that I'd pay 500. Not unless it's a custom shop one, then yeah 500 is awesome.

yeah i've thought about trying them because i loved how one of the models looked but the main turnoff for me was the abense of a tremelo. that's a key factor for me now.

Yeah, that's another nice thing about Schecters, behind the bridge strumming. It's so cool, though I have yet to use it in an actual song.

does that have an actual chord sound to it? because the differnet lengths would lead me to think that it would... or how do you use that?
