Congrats - and happy birthday!

I had my doubts about Schecter and it's not a brand I was attracted to, but the minute I picked up the Hellraiser I was sold. A thing of beauty, with incredible features and surprising workmanship. I am looking forward to getting a 6 string version of it.

If you enjoy yours even only half as much as I do mine, you'll still be delighted.

I miss mine (I had their baritone).  The thing about Schecters is that they are better setup from the start than Gibsons are recently, but you tend to need to replace the input jack for some reason!  Go figure.  Here's me in my Halloween costume pretending to be a rock star while holding my  Schecter.  Christian would like it 'cause it's black! 😁

Always wanted to try one but I've never seen a lefty one of those.

It's obvious that you need hand reassignment surgery Shane!  Then you can, at least, identify as a right-handed guitarist! 🤣🤣🤣

If he don't get the lefty I mentioned he better hurry up and do something because the highest court of our land may soon make a rash decision to outlaw left handed guitars 😜

thought that highest court thingy was a classic distraction move orchestrated by the Lefty Guitar Lobby.

of the 20 million lefty's sold just in US 2020 alone, some will end up here in Europe and in a few years a football coach here will shout ' When are we gonna do something?!'.

sorry I no know religion.

Did NOT notice the Sustainiac!  Just a note...  One of my customs, the "Gaudy Paul," had  a Fernandes Sustainer (which is a licensed version of the Sustainiac).  (I had to sell this one and it was bought by Space Cowboy here who, unfortunately, has passed away which means I have no idea what happened to the guitar!) 

Here's what it looked like originally:

But it only kept the Sustainer for a short time because I was restricted to using one of Fernandes' pickups and for some other reasons I didn't like.  So, out it went and here was the final result:

I still want a Sustainiac, but the version I wanted to get (Model C) is their clip-on model which can obviously be used on multiple guitars!  Unfortunately, it's been out-of-stock for a long time!  The Model C Sustainiac

In any event, it's a good thing you're getting a real Sustainiac!

Alright, you guys showed yours, I'll show mine.  I call her Domina Mortem.

I knew the finish looked good (this is my first quilted finish guitar) but I was even more surprised when I woke up early a few weeks ago and decided to spend some time downstairs where there's daylight...

Indeed RIP Bo.

I remember you selling that Craig - such a beautiful guitar. If I remember correctly, didn't you use the 2nd photo as your avatar for a while?

At least we can be assured Bo would have really treasured such a gem.
