Nice guitar

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research S-II Platinum Electric Guitar:

Pretty well made guitar with ebony fretboard and EMGs , only major complaint is the intonation adjustment screws are way to close to the bridge pickup holder. If you want to change tunings or change string gauge this is pretty annoying other than that it's a really solid instrument.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research S-II Platinum Electric Guitar:

    Almost impossible to set intonation...
    the only way I can set the intonation is to raise my bridge, lower my pickups, loosen my string, move the saddle, lower bridge, tighten string and I hope I get everything set to how it was...total pain.
    For the first time in my life I will pay to have my intonation set...not happy about that.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research S-II Platinum Electric Guitar:

      I absolutely love this guitar, like all other shecters... I'm a Schecter fanboy. These are the best active pickups I have played so far, I spent an hour or two looking for them stock in another guitar from all brands out there and can't find them. Great sound from cleans to squeallies like Pantera. The build quality to the smallest detail looks and feels wayyy beyond the price, especially the schecter style set neck joint. Nice low action I bought it from schecter and it came set up great. It beats the tar out of my esp ltd ec-1000 that's $900... buy this or some other schecter

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research S-II Platinum Electric Guitar:

        Nice guitar. It feels like the ESP LTD line of guitars around this price point. But this one feels a tad better. The 24.75 neck is nice and smooth, playing old Metallica. The one piece body is so much better for the solo work... no notches to get hung up on... 24 frets help. The EMG are real nice. Hardware is nice. Right weight... on the lighter side of medium. You can practice this on your lap for hours. The locking tuners are nice... you just need to google how to use it because mine came strung up with strings on the spools. Apparently you're not supposed to wind them. Just a quarter turn or so and you should be in tune. Just youtube, lol. If you plan to play this on stage, make sure you get a grippy strap because it is top heavy from the locking tuner. Other than that, I like it. I'm keeping this one. Had to return the ESP LTD ec-401 charcoal... felt weird.
