      Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Platinum Electric Guitar (109112169)
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.

  • Set neck with Ultra Access construction
    Mahogany body
    3-piece maple neck

    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.

  • Schecter nailed it

    As reviewed by Donald Pearson on 12/27/2013

    Schecter really knocked it out of the park with this guitar. I'm amazed that they sell it only through GC, and I'm also amazed that more GC stores don't stock this. When I went looking for a new axe this year I had some specific requirements. 1st, the controls need to be out of the way, not hugging the pickups or bridge. 2nd, no effing tremolo, I've already got another axe with a floyd rose that drives me insane. 3rd, it needs to be comfortable sitting down and standing. The 1st axe I ordered was the LTD EX401. Explorer body style with the controls well out of the way, and they look great. Problem with that one is the neck wants to nose-dive when you stand. Your fretting really slows down when you're also holding the guitar up, no good. The 2nd axe I ordered was the LTD EC1000. Les Paul body style, with the controls well out the way again (it's amazing how almost all guitars have the controls right in the way of picking the high strings, especially strat-body guitars). The EC was much better standing up and rested as it should, but very uncomfortable sitting down both on the right leg and cradled. Realizing the strat body is the most comfortable for me, I just started looking at pictures trying to find one where the hardware wasn't up the bridge pickup's butt. Eventually I found the C1 platinum. I called and learned that there was only a couple of stores that had them in stock, the closest was over 12 hours away. Did some digging and learned that this guitar is essentially the same as the Damien platinum. Called back, nobody nearby has that in stock either. Well GC has an excellent return policy that I already used twice, so I went ahead and ordered it. When it shows up and unboxed and felt it, perfect. Sat down and jammed out some riffs, perfect. Install the strap and jam some riffs standing, also perfect. Let go of the guitar and it hangs where it should. Plug it in and lets hear how it sounds... \m/ \m/ \m/ Oh hell yes. I assumed I'd have to spend 700-800 minimum to get in to a decent guitar. That's probably normally true, but this Schecter is a freak. It feels, plays, and sounds better than either of the new LTDs I ordered. It holds its tune great, has great comfortable access to the high frets, and puts that volume knob where it's easy to reach but not in the way. This thing would be flying off the shelf if more people got the chance to play one.
