12-string guitars bring a whole new dimension to your performance, doubling your sound with octaves and unison notes, creating that ringing sound everyone loves. This Schecter STARGAZER-12 Electric Guitar has a familar form and features a resonant ash body. It has a comfortable set maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets for easy fingering. Schecter SuperRock Custom Alnico pickups with coil-tapping and 3-way switch are on board to offer a wide variety of humbucker and single-coil type tones. Grover tuners and a Diamond Adjustable-12 Bridge will keep things in tune throughout your performance.
The original Rotomatic® with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination
Rosewood Finger Board
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

The title sums it up, which is why I give it 4 out of 5 stars. First off, the setup was so good, it was nearly in tune out of the box. Playability is perfect, as was intonation. In fact, the guitar is unusual in that each of the 12 strings has a separate intonation adjustment. The low 6 strings are through body, intoned with a simple screw like a Strat, and the high strings are through bridge, with a set/screw slider adjustment (slightly more difficult to use). the It stays in tune all the way up and down the neck, which is nearly impossible with a Ric, in which each string pair shares the intonation adjustment. The sound is equally fantastic, and the coil tap really makes a difference. You can get the single coil jangle you remember from old songs immediately, or you can thicken that same sound by leaving the pu untapped. I play mostly oldies/classic rock covers in the bands I'm in, so I don't need a 12 string all that often. I was looking for something relatively inexpensive that would do the job. This is it. There's not a sound I look for that I can't get out of it. If you closed your eyes, you'd swear you were listening to a Ric. However, the minute you opened your eyes, you'd see that it's no Ric. It has just a decent paint job, with mediocre binding. That is the only reason I took a star away from this review. I'd give this a C+/B- in the looks department. To sum it up, if you need a 12 for a few songs in your set list, and don't want to pay a lot, this is the one for you (wait for the 15% off sales that GC has every so often). I'm thoroughly satisfied.
