So, I could not find anyone to buy the Schecter 7 string Hellraiser. So, I took it to Sam Ash and traded it for this:




It is the ESP/LTD (George Lynch Super V) GL-600V. That is George Lynch's signature from a recent guitar seminar at the local Sam Ash.

Nice looking guitar - ESP makes very good quality instruments (I have two of their Edwards line of guitars). You mention a Schecter guitar which is kind of interesting - I found out recently that the same Japanese investor owns both ESP and Schecter Research though they are kept as separate companies.

Beautiful guitar, congrats! But ... what you gonna do about playing it with that signature there? Wouldn't want to smudge it off now would you?

Very nice indeed! 8)

With the George's sig on it, are you planing to display it somehow?

It sounds great.

I'd like to post some clips, but I have not mastered my computer recording stuff.

Mostly, I have been trying to get used to the huge difference in pickups. The Seymour Duncan SD-12 in the bridge is bright and gain oriented and the Phat Cat in the neck is great for cleans and mellow sounds. The in-between position is nicely balanced.

As far as the sig goes, I will probably tape off around it and spray over it with a gloss. I think somebody else here asked that question before and I was going to look up that thread, but I've been busy working and playing the guitar (and comparing it to my Gibson Faded V).

One of the guys that plays guitar where I work said he was there for the event. He said he not only played the guitar, but "burned it up" he was so smoking hot on it. I haven't seen Lynch play since the Monster's of Rock festival in summer of 1988 or 1989? and he was the best guitarist by far that day. The sad thing about this whole thing is my poor Gibson V seems so plain now. I'll just have to give her a little make over!!!

So ksac32 - Did George really womp on some wood? I've always thought he was rather under-rated as a player. Obviously some respect him out there due to his ESP/LTD signature guitars and Randall Signature Amps.
