The misinterpretation of silence (and it’s disastrous consequences)
Warfield 12.10.2021
I was soo much looking forward to this guitar, that i almost have no words to describe. This is the Kenny Hickey signature, Kenny, the little green minion of type o negative the one that always created a wall of sound, the electric wizard of many great riffs and songs that i still listen to.

And so I can barely describe the size of my disappointment

the guitar i received was just plain and utterly bad. No Allen keys or booklets nothing (b stock?) And after plugging the guitar into my setup, I can honestly say that I never had a guitar with so many ground noise as this one,

I checked my own gear, my own cables, plugged another guitar, ground noise gone, plugged the Kenny dig, ground noise back, donated it a fresh new battery, with no difference.

So i now have the idea that the guitar somehow has no shielding at all. And I had such high hopes for the sustainiac system, but to be honest, the fernandes sustainer on the Ed o brien strat that i also own, works just as well, maybe even a little better, but that could also be personal taste.

The other ‘big’ feature of the guitar is the killswitch, but once you used the killswitch button on the 2021 evh 5150, this small les paul style knob just won’t do the trick anymore … especially with the tremendous amount of ground noise in this guitar the killswitch is just not pleasantly working.

When using a killswitch there should be dead silence, and with this guitar there’s no silence, just dead noise,

for instance using the killswitch while using the sustainer, you have more noise when the guitar is in ‘off’ mode then when it’s ‘on’ and sustaining.

This is just terrible and annoying as hell, especially because with no casing or other extra’s … this is not a cheap guitar.

To conclude, after an hour of ‘trying & playing’ I decided to return the schecter. And I think I now also have an idea why the resale value of most schecters is so low.

And I know that with voiding the warranty, and some handy work, from my side with shielding and masking tape & some paint, and then while I am at it, also changing the knob to a button the guitar could probably be more up to my needs,

but that is not something that I want or looking for with a signature guitar that costs me more then a thousand dollars, when i pay those amounts of money, then I want a quality product with just no ground noize at all.

And if i want a guitar as basis for a project, then thomann has a great selection of high quality guitars named harley benton
