I purchased my solo vintage one year ago choosing the see thru cherry and could not be happier. the minute I open the case somewhere someone will make a comment on how beautiful it is, then I say ...wait till you hear it... the action is low like everyone wants and your hands could play the fretboard forever. The pickups sound incredible and the coil splitting knob is a bonus found on much higher priced guitars,top it off with a Bigsby,enough said.Two months ago I bought an american made stratocaster which I love but still pick up the solo vintage to play just as much.buy one and you will soon agree.
This guitar is heavy! It's like the hammer of Thor. I purchased the see-through cherry version, and the finish is outstanding--much more vivid than in the photos. The creme binding gives this guitar LP Custom looks at less than an LP Studio price. The plastic logo on the headstock leaves a little to be desired, but for this price I'm not going to complain too much. Setup from the factory was good with low action and no buzzing strings. Sounds good, too. The coil splitting is nice, although the knob on the push-pull pot fell off the first time I used it and had to be glued back on by the store manager. Works fine now. Normal tuning issues with the Bigsby, although it could also have to do with new strings still stretching. Overall I'm happy with this guitar and I don't really know how Schecter can offer this quality at this price.
This puppy rocks! Schecter has a reputation for seious quality control and I was not disapointed. Color me pleased. The Vintage Solo came in set up for sin,playing like a centerfold, and whether you make it scream or whisper in your ear, it calls your name like a drug. The intonation is smack on. The PUs give you an excellent blend capability without being trapped in any one genre or sound. Everything from Eddie Cochran to Neil Young to X. The Bigsby is as smooth as honey and stays in tune just fine thank you very much.Get your own cuz you can't have mine.
This puppy rocks. Period. I may wax poetic like I work for Schecter but I assure you I do not. From twangin' like Duane Eddy, to Carl Perkins,to Horton Heat to Neil Young at his grungiest, to Billy Zoom and beyond. Set up for sin. Plays like a centerfold. Purists may hesitate about the more traditional HB at the bridge but I feel like it gives me an exit door to individuality if I feel trapped in the "Gretsch only" box. The Bigsby is honey smooth and the tuning is beyond all a man can ask for. Been playing for 30 + years. I could make make drug references but that would be wrong. Although it might not be inaccurate. Get two!
I've been playing for almost 30 years. I own a few Gretsch's (Silver Falcon and an Electromatic), so I'm familiar with Bigsby's. I also own a couple of MusicMan's (Axis and Steve Morse signature), so I'm also familiar with Floyds. I was looking for something that could span them all, and this fits the bill perfectly. There was a little bow in the neck upon receiving, but a little tweak of the truss rod fixed that. It's now super-straight, the action is way-low, and it feels like home in my small-ish hands. The finish is beautiful (I got the 2-tone burst), the binding is just sweet, and the frets are well dressed. And that's all before I plugged it in. The pickups are... twangy? Jangly? Yeah, all of that, but more sort of "breathy" and with a ton of character (especially with the split-coil) and capable of a lot of expression. But you can also get gain out of them. It pretty much does whatever you ask of it. I'm amazed that there aren't more reviews of this. It's truly a beautiful and well-playing/sounding instrument. You just about can't do better for 600 bucks.
