There was a thread about these here years back. Has anyone actually ever played one? I like the satin neck finish, 24.75" scale, 9.5" radius and 3 way toggle vs switches. It basically really ticks off most of the modern updates I would want on a Mustang BUT there is such limited info on them out there. They seem to be pretty available in Japan however I would be buying blind. Thought maybe someone here had some first hand info. Is the Schecter Japan stuff as high quality as the Fender Japan stuff or worse...or maybe better?

That one was just on Reverb. It says sold but the buyer actually pulled it and decided to keep it. I had been taking to him. I found a couple of them in Japan but I would obviously need to ship it over. I am pretty sure Schecter is well regarded but honestly I just have no idea what the quality level is. I do really like all of the upgrades they made.

Looks really cool, but I don't see how they can make basically a copy like this nowadays. Japan doesn't honor patents or something?

They aren't for the US market so it probably does fall into that weird patent grey area. I don't understand any of it. Or maybe the headstock is off just enough to make it ok?

I have two Diamond Series Schecters (Korean), both VIs, and have owned three; I bought all of them online as there's no local dealer within a day or so drive of me. Quality on all three has been top notch, and six years on I still have no complaints. I'm sure the Japanese models are just as good, if not better; I wouldn't worry about it.

I didn't realize the yen was so strong against the dollar right now...it's making the decent deals less decent but I am still thinking about it. I would imagine they are as good as the Fender Japan stuff but there is just no one that has played one. The guy that was selling one said he loves his but he hasn't owned a Fender Mustang to compare it to as far as quality.

Every Schecter I've noodled around on has been a nice guitar. The main guitar guy in my last band had a Schecter PRS-wannabe and it played really well.

Schecter used to make really nice Fender copies back in the day.

Schecter was a third party parts manufacturer originally, and as the legend goes, one day Pete Townsend asked them to make him like 4 guitars for tour, and bang, they became a guitar company.

I've also had great experiences with Schecters. It's the only brand I've had that doesn't need a complete setup upon arrival. The QC is tight like a tiger.

I am thinking I might take a shot in the dark on one.
