Beautiful Guitar

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Banshee-6 FR Extreme Solid Body Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar for mostly casual playing, as I am currently learning guitar. It is very different from the Epiphone I was using before, so I had to get used some features like the locking nut and floyd rose bridge, but after a week, I couldn't have chosen better. The neck is perfectly thin but not too wide, and the body is comfortable too. Also I have the blue version and it is one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Banshee-6 FR Extreme Solid Body Electric Guitar:

After seeing so little reviews on this guitar, I felt I should chime in and let you guys know how great it really is. Yes the floyd rose bridge is "hard" to set up for most, but honestly it is really fun to learn how to properly set it up and use. The craftsmanship is top-notch, the design and build quality is amazing, and the playability and feel are superb. I really love this guitar with one exception, the pickups. They're "not bad" pickups, but they're definitely not the greatest sounding ones out there. I've never liked any tone that has come out of Schecters at this price range, but I can't really complain too much since they sound good enough. My first and only mod to mine will be changing these flat sounding pickups to give it the life that it looks, and feels like it has already.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Banshee-6 FR Extreme Solid Body Electric Guitar:

This guitar has an amazing fit and finish. The quality of the finish rivals that of guitars twice its price. It also has plenty of "bling" with its inlays, binding, and quilted maple top for something in this price range. The only downside: lackluster pick-ups and (at least the one I had) a poor setup. String action was set so low that the notes choke out to the point where you can hear it in the amp. I'm not much of diy guy so I just returned it. But if you're not afraid of a floyd rose setup and got some quality pickups to throw in, you'll have yourself a killer guitar.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Banshee-6 FR Extreme Solid Body Electric Guitar:

Floyd Rose bridge is quite a complicated piece of hardware to adjust to get the right feel and sound. To beginner's i recommend getting the hardtail version. it's a fantastic guitar, sounds great. but im so discouraged to replace strings and adjust string action and retune that it doesn't get played as much as i want to. I bought the Grey one cause it spoke to me < 3

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Banshee-6 FR Extreme Solid Body Electric Guitar:

    Okay the tuning and restringing aren't worth it
    My guitar broke while stringing and I don't recommend getting this style
    Get the other one and paint it the color you desire but as for as this one
    I don't like it because I could've tuned 3 guitars than taking 15min to tune this one and the locking tuners aren't good also don't get a guitar with the Bridge being able to come up or else you're gonna regret it, I sure did and now I'm trading it in!
