Great playability, cosmetics not so good.

By Robert

from North Providence, RI

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Custom Electric Guitar:

I purchased this guitar online and shipped to store. It arrived well-packaged in what appeared to be factory packaging. The guitar came through with the following cosmetic issues: One tuner knob so tranlucent that the screw post shows through, two small areas at the neck near the pickup that either did not take stain or stain was scratched off prior to final clearcoat, a scratch in the fretboard between the 21st and 22nd frets, and a small ding in the body (no finish removed) near the cord jack. I set up the guitar and it set-up and plays perfectly to my liking. I contacted Schecter and informed them of my findings, and they told me to return it. However I previously paid $1700 for a Gibson that had tuning problems, and $1200 for a Fender American Strat that would not intonate the low E with 9 gauge strings, so the dilemma is to keep the Schecter or have it exchanged for one that is cosmetically perfect but might not play as well. In my opinion, this should have been a B-Stock item due to the cosmetic issues but good playability. Schecter did confirm that this was not a B-Stock item. SN 11101925

Great Guitar

By Dave

from chandler, az

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Custom Electric Guitar:

Seriously, it's all here. Versatility is the name of the game! Best neck pocket/heal I've ever encountered! No trouble getting to all 24 of those frets. Tone is great as those Duncans are amazing. Beautiful Quilt Veneer. My only complaints are that the frets are really medium jumbo, and the blue color here is far lighter than the actual color that I got. Still looks great, just was surprised.

Great guitar and awesome value too

By RDRocks

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Custom Electric Guitar:

I have several other guitars, but wanted a good all around workhorse guitar. I did a lot of research and based on reviews I ended up chosing the C1 Custom especially after playing a standard C1 (they didn't have the Custom in stock). It played and sounded better than other similar priced (higher and lower ones) guitars. I ordered the one I wanted taking a chance that having true Seymour Duncan pickups SH-11(b)& SH-1(n), locking tuners, and nicer inlays would prove to be even better. It was and this guitar is lighter than my true Les Paul or Strat, but the sustain is incredible. It rocks as hard as my LP ever could and when in split-coil mode can be as spanking sparkling clean as you'd want to get. Plus it looks pretty awesome to boot. I don't think I could've spent my money better. They call this guitar the poor man's PRS and I agree. I'd love to have a PRS but you'd spend at least 4x this to get something substantially better from a PRS (I tried several PRS SE models and this was clearly better). Unless you are only looking to play heavy metal this guitar would please most anyone although it can rock as hard as anything else I picked up. I am pleased with it for sure.

worth every dime

By john

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Custom Electric Guitar:

i got the guitar on october 10 ish. i played it all day and the beauty of the guitar never got old. the ebony fingerboard matches the ruby red of the guitar perfectly. every thing is cromed giving the guitar an edge that every-one should love. the splitting tone option i love and always helps. the c-1 plus was replaced by this guitar and it was a choice by schecter overall.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Custom Electric Guitar:

first real guitar i got excluding my squier. i got this for christmas and its one of the greatest guitars ive ever played. the seymour duncan pickups, which are not pickups that i usualy like, i must say sound amazing. the neck is smooth which allows you to move around the fretboard quickley and it holds tuning very well. a beautiful guitar that i would recomend to anyone considering.

Awesome

By Random_Dude

from Alpharetta, GA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Custom Electric Guitar:

This guitar is awesome. I have had it for almost 5 years now and I still love it. I wanted a PRS for less money, and this is it! The tone is dark and crunchy, just like I like it. The jumbo frets are easy to play, the sustain is great, and it stays in tune. I highly recommend this guitar

Amazing!!!!!

By Andrew

from New Orleans

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Custom Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. I've had this guitar for around 6 month. Its great. The Design is beautiful and the thru neck is great. The Seymour Duncan pickups are great. Superb with Distortion and so-so clean. These are top notch pickups. This guitar has a very dark tone. Great for metal, hard rock, alternative, or anything with a kick. I recommend it five stars no doubt.
