    Got this today and it plays and sounds beautiful.
    Has a scratch on the back so I got a discount on it.
    Mahogany Neck and Body
    Grover Tuners
    Graphtech Tusq Nut
    Bigsby B50 Vibrato
    Duncan Designed FG 101 and HB 102
    Tonepros Roller Bridge
    Very happy with it.

    Update: I bought a Vibramate String Spoiler for the Bigsby as trying to restring it was a nightmare. Getting some Locking Grovers for an absolute steal of $50 NZD (around $35 USD) and I am thinking of replacing the bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan 59/Custom Hybrid I can also get for an absolute steal of $80 NZD (around $57 USD).
    I like the neck pickup for clean tones it sounds really nice.

    Nice!

    Hold your Les Paul headstock end-to-end with this guitar. I'll be the Gibson open-book fits right into that headstock like a puzzle-piece! ;)

    Unfortunately don't have a Gibson can't afford one. From what i've heard the modern Gibsons aren't that great so if was to get one i'll probably look for an older one

    You don't need a Gibson. Not with what you have. Schecter makes great guitars. Yours is very nice.

    I have a few other Gibsonesque guitars that quench that need so I agree

    I also have a Schecter solo but part of their Hellraiser series. It's a great guitar, very thick but clear sounding guitar. I bet with some better pickups your guitar will sound even better.

    I've been playing it since I bought it and still dialing it in but I have been playing some ACDC among other things on it. I have it in E Flat easier for me to sing along with but she growls under some distortion. The only things i'm looking to change at the moment are the tuners and a string spoiler for the Bigsby. Going to get Locking tuners and make string changes easier as I have trouble with restringing Bigsbys. Might look into pickups later on if I decide I don't like them as much
