I don't know if this is against the rules but you can hear my song Here's to Waking using this guitar with the Sustainiac doing it's thing around 1:15 to 1:30

This is likely the lowest I've seen a Schecter Sustainiac model go on sale for. Their most affordable FR-S is the Sun Valley Super Shredder and that goes for $899.

I have this guitar, and I think I paid around this price years ago, pre-covid. The guitar is stellar. Excellent craftsmanship on the guitar. The sustainiac is an amazing tool. As most guitarist, I started by overusing it. But fairly quickly learned that it has a place. Now it's off most of the time, but I kick it in when I want it. The 3 modes of the sustainiac are also great. Take time and learn each. It will add so much to your overall playing.

The feel of the neck is absolutely amazing. The neck through has a nice heal, making easy access to the higher frets. I use this guitar every time that I play Gary Moore tunes, like The Loner and Parisienne Walkways. Get those amazing sustain and feedback sounds, without the need for finding that spot on the stage, and marking it.

If I had one gripe, it would be that it needs 2 9V batteries. One for the neck sustainiac, and another for the EMG. Carry a few in your gig bag. It seems like they also drain slightly even when you're not playing. This pretty much sucks.

Overall, the quality of this guitar is a solid 9/10, if not higher. The -1 point would be for the 2 batteries.
