    You should probably start including the lefty part in your opening post.

    Nice one I got 2 of them really love the Blackjacks SLS lighter slimmer neck and body they just keep evolving
    You can see the difference in necks in the below pic and the new Schecter I'm looking to get is even thinner

    I’ve got a blackjack sls c-1 with the sustainiac pickup and it’s an incredible guitar. The neck is definitely slim and super shreddy. I initially bought it to scratch that occasional 80s-90s metal itch, but found myself grabbing for it all the time cause it is so much fun to play.

    Do you use the sustainiac feature or are you bored with it already ?

    Yup, still use it. Difference is that when I first got it, I overused the sustainer whereas now I use it less but (hopefully) more tastefully.

    .

    A couple of comments that may or may not help..
    -Schecter are apparently made at the same factory as PRS SE models. The PRS's will have better resale value later.
    -Have you used a Floyd before? Futzy to set up and if a string breaks the others go out of tune.
    -Since the need for trem dive-bombs has fallen, string bending on the fretboard has become more popular.

    Thanks for the reply's
    As far as the Floyds go actually I'm on the fence maybe leaning towards going with a hardtail not really into Floyds for all the above reasons.
    I have a Strat that i decked to hard to keep in tune for me but at the same time thinking maybe give it a try again and if I don't like it I can always deck it
    So Schecters are made at the same factory as the PRS interesting factoid

    From the replies, I'd say don't get a Floyd if there's even a chance you'd deck it. That's a crime against nature.

    Here's a few things to know about Floyd Rose vibrato bridges:

    you'll need a 2.5mm allen wrench if you change the tuning more than 1/2 a step
    tuning them up takes a while, because the bridge is so limbre on those knife edges
    every time you change the tension on one string (when the nut is unlocked) all the other strings' tension is affected

    Schecters are solid instruments, but if it were me I'd try to get one made in Korea rather than Indonesia.

    IMO, since you already have some hard tail guitars, why not get a Floyd to open up some more playing possibilities and have something different. They’re honestly not that much of a hassle and hold tune like a beast. These come with quality FR tremelos on them, not the cheap FR licensed units made out of the crappy metal that strips out and falls apart.
