  • Just scored a Custom Tele for cheap on Ebay

    In the late 80's/early 90's, Schecter had a Custom Shop on Sunset Blvd. right across from Guitar Center. They later moved all their custom work to Japan.
    If you've ever played one of these custom shop Schecters, you'd know that they played like butter and sounded amazing. Far better stuff than any import by Schecter. The new one's go for around $2100. Anyway, I've been watching this Sunset Custom Tele on Ebay for a week, and planned on proxy sniping it at the very end, to ensure I got it. I always wait till the last minute, throw out a bid, and if I'm not the winner, I have only seconds to raise my bid. If you notice the bids, I came in 4 seconds before it ended, and swiped it. I remember these sold for around $1400 in the early 90's, and this one is mint. If it's as killer as I think it is, I'm selling my G&L Asat Z-3, to fund it.

    Superb choice.

    US Schecters were great guitars.

      holy crap you bought that. I was actually looking at that one. I have the Korean produced version of that same guitar. Built to the same specs, but in Korea, and it has a basswood body, still natural/black too. Real nice guitar, I'm lovin it. If i had the dough I probably would have tried snipin that guitar out from under you too.

                  I remember that shop.

                  nice acquisition.

                  I'd wait till I played it to decide whether or not to sell the Z3, though.

                          I definitely bought this guitar as a player, not a seller. I say that everytime I buy a guitar, then play it for awhile and see if the guitar is something I love. You never really know till you own it for awhile. I have a good feeling about this one though. I'm going to wait till I get this one before I part with the G&L, and possibly keep both. I've got some other gear for sale right now, so I'll pay for this Schecter with the sale of something I'm not using.
                          I don't feel bad about the guy who bid against me. I wanted it more.
                          Another good thing about this guitar is that it probably won't need a pickup upgrade. I played one like this years ago and remember that the pickups were great. That ash looks better than anything I've seen on Fenders lately.
                          The 12 inch radius neck means it'll be great for chicken shredding.
