    That's just as close in body shape and headstock as the Dean guitar. Expect Schecter to get the C&D letter soon.

    BTW, I have dibs on "C&D Guitars" as my brand name.

    Schecter make great guitars , their $1000 to $1500 range is stunning by any standards.
    My one Schecter is this 2009 Devil Spine which i had to have for its badassier.

    Like the body better than the Agile.
    Never liked that head stock.

    Schecter's my favorite brand. I do have a couple of their Omen Extreme line: A lefty and a 5-string bass. They're solid guitars, but not up there with my ~$1000+ Hellraiser Hybrid, Apocalypse, and KM7. They're also in the $300-$400 range, and at that range, it's fantastic. If it's like my lefty Omen Extreme strat, you'll probably want to swap out the pups, but it's a solid guitar otherwise.

    And yeah, that SG body shape and finish is pretty sweet.

    They come in white and platinum, too. If they made the colorshift blue with an FR bridge, I don't think I'd be able to control myself.
