Check out this new beauty from Schecter. That’s the Mark Thwaite Solo IIsignature model. Ultra Violet finish, Bigsby vibrato, Seymour Duncan JB and Alnico II Pro pickups, Schecter locking tuners… plus look at it. Look at it!
Mark Gemini Thwaite (MGT) has played for so many legends over the years – The Mission, Tricky, Peter Murphy, New Disease, Spear of Destiny, Theatre of Hate, Mob Research with Paul Raven of Killing Joke, and Canadian band National Velvet – as well as playing with the likes of Al Jourgensen, Revolting Cocks, Gary Numan, Roger Daltrey, P.J. Harvey, Alanis Morissette, Ricky Warwick and The Fighting Hearts, Ginger of The Wildhearts and more. So you know he needs a guitar that’s very flexible and reliable.
I really dig the Solo-II shape. Just that little bit more aggressive than a typical Les Paul outline, and very comfortable judging by the ones I’ve played. If I ever had a Schecter signature model it’d be a 7-string Solo-II with Floyd Rose and honeyburst finish but otherwise very much like this.
