      Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Platinum Electric Guitar (H96103)
Availability:  


A set neck and active EMG pickups make this deluxe axe a bargain.

The Schecter C-1 Platinum Electric Guitar takes everything guitar players love about the popular C-1 and adds platinum fingerboard inlays, fretboard and body binding, and satin chrome hardware. This C-1 also boasts a double cutaway mahogany body, 25.5" scale set maple neck, and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. A Schecter Ultra Access neck joint lets you reach the entire fretboard with ease and comfort. It's loaded with a pair of EMG Active 81/85 pickups for an incredible range of tones.

Grover tuners

The original Rotomatic® with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.

Rosewood fingerboard
The most common fretboard, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

EMG Active 81/85 pickups
One of the most popular EMG’s the 81 is the one that started a revolution. Utilizing powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high-end cut and fluid sustain. Traditionally used in the bridge position, this pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. When used in both neck and bridge positions, the sound can only be described as blistering. Recommended pairings include the classic 81/85 setup.

3-piece maple neck
The C-1 Platinum is made with three pieces of maple for extra stability. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the three-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

    Schecter has not failed to impress once again. I already have a Hellraiser Solo-6 Special, and it is a perfect compliment to it. The EMG's scream, of course. They provide a great range of tones. The mahogany body gives great resonance and the string-through setup provides ultimate sustain. Perhaps my favorite part about this ax is the one-piece neck construction, which makes it very easy to access the higher frets. It seems to be very solidly constructed and durable. It is also relatively light. The grey-burst is stunning. You can't beat this guitar for the money. It is a must have for any level of player.

  • So Good.....Just SOOOOOO Good

    As reviewed by liam tahaney on 4/23/2014

    this guitar is crazy awesome. it is my fist schecter, and defiantly wont be my last. there is nothing about this guitar that doesnt stand out as being awesome. everything from the feel of the neck down to the pots is spot on. just a list of this guitars awesome features: ~the neck is awesome. it is perfect. soo smooth and easy to play. ~the tuners are grover....need i say more? ~the neck joint is the best of all of the 7 electric's i own(a 1992 iby rg570, an iby rg5ex1, a martin f-65, a teisco, an iby sz, a lp knock-off, and this) ~the tone wood is great. mahogany is much better than basswood. ~even though they get alot of hate, the 81/85 pickups are awesome. surprisingly enough, the cleans are nice. ~all of the hardware is a nice satin chrome. the feel is way better than normal gloss hardware ~the quilted maple is awesome. beautiful, yet subtle. ~the guitar has silver binding that is awesome.....way better than normal black/white/ivory ~as i mentioned earlier, the pots are awesome....super smooth over all, this guitar is AMAZING. basically, if you dont own this guitar, you are making a mistake.

  • Tone God

    As reviewed by Kenneth Duncan on 4/24/2014

    for $550 you get probably one of the greatest guitars on earth. Schecter has just recently caught my attention but every one i have played has been amazing. even they're $300 guitars are awesome. I played this guitar when i was last in my local GC and ohhh man...If i weren't buying a Hellraiser C-1 i would have grabbed this before anyone else seen it. the tone this thing KRANKS! It's a freaking monster. Neck is ultra slim and rounded it's a 3 piece set neck that Feels the same as any neck through guitar which means Superior! It's Really REALLY light weight and the EMG 81,85 Combo is never a bad thing. If you are looking for a traditional double cut away design guitar that literally is possessed by a Tone God then buy this you will not be disappointed.
