Schecter Japan SD-II-24-DS Aqua Blue 2009 & used hard case
This Schecter is another guitar you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the UK. Built by Schecter Japan it's a real "superstrat". I always thought that Schecter guitars were either made in USA or from Korea or another Far Eastern country but never Japan. Apparently they are made and are freely available there. Like the Edwards guitars I import, they have really high specification & are superbly made. This particular guitar looks and sounds fantastic.
This guitar was imported by me from my supplier in Japan. The guitar is excellent with top quality pickups, hardwear & finish. It is used but in fantastic condition with little fretwear. There are just some minor dents and scratches from playing and is just as it arrived. Please check out the gallery photos. They actually don't do it justice. The quilted top looks fab & the blue is very vibrant.
Although I don't usually play this sort of guitar, it is a fantastic instrument. Really low action & a very flat fretboard making it an ideal "shredder"!!
Here are some specifications that I found online. I've had to translate it so some of it is a bit more difficult to understand but it gives all the important information that you need

There are a few of this model for sale on Ebay in Japan & the USA. They are priced around £700-£800 but that doesn't include VAT & import duty which amount to around 25%. I've already paid that on this guitar so it's a good price
As stated many times, due to courier damage, all my guitars are shipped in hard cases (usually new) this one being a used but good quality black option as per the photos.
If you are collecting, I'm happy to knock off the price of the case (About £30) & I may even have an old gig bag you can have to take it away in
So to sum up, a really nice guitar from Schecter. This model is near impossible to find here in the UK price wise, they are around 130,000 Yen (£925) in Japan but this is without shipping & duties
