This is a good deal, every South Korean Schecter I've played has been great. I think that they've moved almost all of the mid tier production to Indonesia, all of the newer Korean guitars are well over the $1k price point.

This might be one of the last shots at getting one at a reasonable price.

I have the SheDevil C-1 and it is an amazing guitar. Highly recommend the C-1s for any rock or heavier type music.

Are the pickups as good as the duncans?

Seems so based on the retail pricing at $100 per pickup. Sound-wise that would be opinion based.

Seems perfect for this kind of tone if it's your style.

Damn, don't have this kind of money for a guitar right now, but I'm a big fan of Schecters.

Highly recommend playing one at a guitar center or some place similar . Very good quality parts but the feel is the complete opposite of other "'metal guitars" like Ibanez and Jackson. Quite heavy with large fret boards . I cannot maneuver the neck of my schecter the same as I can on my Stratocaster or Ibanez prestige.

I personally have a Schecter with the Apocalypse pickups and I really like them. I mostly play metal. Great all around guitars in my opinion.

Don't think if it like an Ibanez Wizard neck. It's not just about fast shredding playability for rock/metal, etc. it's also about tone, resonance, etc. if this neck is "thicker" with larger frets then it would do well for drop tunings, palm mutes, power chords, etc.

Don't get me wrong…you can still shred…just depends on personal feel, hand/finger size, proper hand posture, etc.

I wouldn't compare them to Duncan's, Gibsons, or any other passive (non-battery) pickups. These are EMG 81/85 ACTIVE pickups. These are a "standard" combination of pickups for those that want out-of-the box metal capabilities.

The sound is personal preference. The sound is clean, polished and "perfect"…which is a problem for some people—the sound can be too perfect so much so that it might feel like it lacks "personality". Some people prefer the "imperfections" of passive pickups, which they interpret as "nuances".

As for me…I don't care whether it's active or passive. To me it's all in the player. It's like cars…all cars don't feel or drive the same. They say a real race car chooses its driver. The question is…are you the right driver for that car? Can you learn/adapt to drive that car? A guitar can sound terrible in player "A's" hands, but amazing in player "B's" hands. This is just an opportunity for player A to learn/adapt.
