  1. Schecter is a reliable brand and I've been very happy with the couple that I've had over the years. I've even played the cheaper models, so I don't think it's a brand issue. If you brought it to a tech and they said the fret buzz sounded normal, I would go get a second opinion just in case. Electric guitars will have minor fret buzz from time to time due to changes in weather, etc. A simple truss rod adjustment should clear up that issue. Also if you had the box shipped to your house that will affect its playability when you tuned it up and tried playing it right away. Weather and it being bounced around in a truck, etc. can cause some buzzing/intonation problems. It could be an issue with the bridge like daddymack said so if you do go get it looked at by someone else I would ask them to take a look at the bridge.
  2. I would look into trying out a used Schecter or used LTD guitar for your budget. Even a new Agile would be around that price point. I primarily play baritone guitars, but in your case I don't know if I'd recommend one right off the bat. It sounds like the tunings you want to use fall in that range, but I think you can get away with a 25.5" scale guitar for C and B. I think that should be the minimum scale length to look for, though. Something like a 24.75" or 25" scale is going to be too short in my opinion.
  3. That is a gorgeous lookin' guitar!
  4. I'll second @Freeman Keller with the Benedetto recommendation. I've heard some really good things about those. I'd love to actually be able to afford a Benedetto guitar one day Here's a video comparing some stock pickups, the Phat Cat and the Benedetto A6 if you're interested in checking it out - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SgcdIeyEU8
  5. I would try adding a boost or overdrive pedal like Grant said. Have you seen any videos/reviews of the Seymour Duncan JB in semi-hollow guitars to see if that's what you're going for? Here is one I just found - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpQd_25noL4 Calling a company like Seymour Duncan directly should help you out with deciding on some options as well.
  6. Here is a list of some Sevendust songs in Drop B off the top of my head. I might have some of them wrong, because they will sometimes tune to a DADGAD tuning, but in B. Bitch, Terminator, Too Close To Hate, Prayer, My Ruin, Denial, T.O.A.B, Praise, Dead Set, Follow, Redefine, Disease, Broken Down, Hero, Ugly, Pieces, Splinter, Inside, Faithless. Sevendust is one of my favorite bands of all time. Highly underrated when it comes to songwriting and live performance in my opinion.
  7. A couple of my favorites: Chevelle - Closure Sevendust - Denial Mudvayne - Death Blooms Dark Tranquility - Terminus (Where Death Is Most Alive) Seether - Given
  8. You probably can't go wrong with a Schecter that has passive pickups in it. Like a couple of people above said, you should look for a used guitar that is around the $400-500 range. If you aren't happy with the pickups that came with it you can use that extra money you have to get some new ones done the line. I've bought two used Schecters over the years and have been extremely happy with them. That LTD EC-1000 is a nice guitar as well.
