i don't even use the locking nut. with a disabled trem there is no need for it. my shit doesnt really sound different by doing it this way, but everbody complains about cutting the ball ends off of the strings like it's required. it don't always have time to do all that work which is why i use alot of common sense to cut corners.

Schecters are pretty nice. I don't get why they are so cheap, but I'm not complaining! They are mostly set neck or neck thru, nice pickups, play well, and look very good, especially the ones with abalone binding (I just love binding). I might get one some day, got other things to get these days though.

duncan design pickups arent good, and thats what most schecters come stock with.
but they are decent guitars i guess. they have a cheap prs feel to me.

what guitar has ducan designed pickups?? All the Schecter's i played have JB's at the bridge and 59's at the neck whcih i love. I also played one with a duncan distortion at the bridge. I think schecters doing a good thing buy putting good pickups in their guitars... most people just change out the shitty ones anyways.

I like Schecter guitars. They have a good feel and great prices. Better than ANY B.c. rich guitar of the same price.

i was just pointing out the fact that alot of/most schecters have duncan design pickups. of course they have their higher end guitars stock with nicer "real" duncans, they'd be stupid not to.

more because of the nice pickups they come stock with, the fact that both have 24 frets, the similar body styles, and the color does help
