    I really wish he would get banned to be honest. I think he may take his life if he did but it is a risk I am willing to take.

    Perhaps I should contact Symantec to include a Tweedbucket filter because he is like a damn virus on this forum.

    The Cure is my favorite band and Robert Smith is my biggest influence as a guitarist.

    I prefer his CountryGentleman/ Jazzmaster/Tele periods. But then he would design a signature guitar that was so weird. Hell, he even played a res-o-glass US Map-shaped National for years. He's odd.

    I can't imagine that guitar looking right on anybody but him.

    I have no idea what it sounds like.

      I don't think he had a hand in designing it, outside of cosmetics and hardware, maybe

      it's based on an existing Schecter design

      I like the white Ultras pretty well

        Yeah, but it's like a deformed Ultra!

            i think the ultra looks awesome.

            but the sig model would only look right on RS himself.

              He took a picture of the ultra, put it in photoshop, bent it around, and sent it to schecter.
              When they came out with this, it was from Summer to Winter NAMM (or vice versa) before they changed the Ultra's shape to match.

                  Yep. He actually had a big hand in designing it.

                    I like the normal Ultra shape.

                      The Cure is my all time favorite band... and I totally respect Robert Smith... but whats with the humbuckers?

                      It just doesnt seem right.

                        He's been a HB guy (mostly) since like the late 80's!

                        Did you see the triligy DVD where he plays the Jazzmaster for the whole first set? It sounds awesome and when I saw it I was hoping he would go back to it, realizing how sweet it was. But then he got all schecter-ey!

                          Biggest piece of trash I've ever seen. I'd rather play a Squier Affinty Stratocaster.

                            Um... I understand thinking it's ugly, but Schecter seems to have a great reputation, even for it's more affordable models. I'd think they'd be ably to make a good mid-priced signature model.

                            Actually, nobody ever seems to have a negative word for Schecter around here. Am I missing something?

                              yeah - that he's a parade pisser.

                              I didn't realize (obviously) that artists had that much control over their sig series to the point of actually designing the shape and all. I thought it was more "I want these pickups, and control layout"

                              pretty cool - what other sigs are actually designed by the artist more than just a modded existing model?
