Overview

The Schecter V-1 Platinum Electric Guitar packs a lot of features for the price. The V-shaped mahogany body looks amazing in its sleek satin finish. The set maple neck is joined at the heal with Schecter's ultra-access neck joint to help you reach high notes with maximum facility. This platinum edition gets ebony for the fingerboard to add durability and sustain with 24 extra-jumbo frets at your disposal.

The Schecter V-1 sports active electronics that play a key role in its sound. An EMG 66 humbucker in the neck position and EMG 77 at the bridge produce all the crunch and power you can use, shaped by dual volume controls and a master tone. A tune-o-matic bridge allows for precise adjustment of intonation and string height, while the string-thru-body tailpiece design further adds to the V-1's sustain and tone. Case sold spearately.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research V-1 Platinum Electric Guitar:

    Great sound, great feel. If you like thin, fast necks, then I would definitely recommend this instrument. Tonally this thing goes anywhere from jazz, to rock, to death metal. A truly versatile axe. The only bad thing about mine was the wiring job. I don't know how it made it past testing, but the volume pot for the bridge pickup arrived detached from the pickguard and would rattle when moved. Also the middle position on the pickup selector switch is just the neck pickup. I don't really know how to fix this, but I don't mind too much since I usually just use the bridge pickup anyway.

          This guitar is awesome. The pickups sound great. Definitively a rock machine. Quality is excellent. Great value. Better or equal to a Gibson Flying V.
