Definitely. It doesn't help that the man himself always avoided mentioning the brand in recent times during interviews and documentaries. He probably doesnt want to be associated with br00tal black nekr0 djent music, which apparently is the genre Schecter makes guitars for.Mark Knopfler's Schecter Dream Machine "Strat".
I mean like how Bille Joe Armstrong's iconic "Blue" is not a Fender but rather a Fernandes.
Or Slash's guitar on AFD being a copy of a Gibson.
I think EVH's Strat would qualify as well?
Wondering if there are other examples like that.
