When it comes to Schecter Guitar Research, you can always expect an extremely high level of playability, sound quality and versatility - but perhaps more than any other series they make available, their C-1 line of guitars are the most popular, and for good reason. Throughout the C-1 series, Schecter Guitar Research aims at constructing killer axes for every taste, style and budget. In fact, C-1 guitars are even used by many famous shredders, including Synyster Gates of Avenged Sevenfold and Jeff Loomis of Nevermore.
So you might be wondering, which C-1 guitar is best for you? That can be figured out by taking a closer look at each option to see how each guitar varies in feel and tone. If you're into metal and want a top-quality guitar in the $500-$1000 range, you'll definitely benefit from checking out the Hellraiser C-1s. For example, the Hellraiser Hybrid C-1 Electric Guitar is a fusion of the Hellraiser and SLS models, and boasts sought-after features from each. Equipped with EMG's 57/66 Active humbuckers with Brushed Black metal-works covers, Schecter Locking Tuners, GraphTech Tusq nuts and a new designed "Carbon Fiber" binding with glow-in-the-dark side dots, the Hellraiser Hybrid is a metal head's dream axe.
Another one-of-a-kind guitar in the C-1 series is the E/A. This beauty has a set mahogany neck that's joined at the head with Schecter's ultra-access neck joint for reaching higher frets, and a chambered mahogany body that looks stunning in its Cat's Eye finish. Additionally, the C-1 E/A Electric Guitar has active electronics that include a piezo pickup element in the bridge, Diamond Plus humbuckers when you prefer to turn on the crunch, and 24 extra-jumbo frets for extra sustain when bending notes. All of this combines for a unique guitar experience that will have you touching on areas of your technique that you never even thought existed.
From solid body electrics to left-handed models, semi-hollow bodies and even signature models from top recording artists, the Schecter C-1 line is loaded with plenty of other options, so don't stop at the choices mentioned above. Whether you're an experimental slinger who likes to touch on numerous genres or a head banger who never turns the volume knob below 10, Schecter has a C-1 guitar for you.
