I played one of these at the music store and I just love the feel of the strings. I was in slap heaven with these. I also played a Cirrus right next to it and while it was more clean it did not feel like a slapper like the Grind. What kind of strings are on those Grinds? I want to replace my Schecter Studio with those boys. I was even going to go as far as buying a 4 string grind they are pretty cheap at 250 on ebay.
