Schecter C-1 FR Electric Guitar

By Joseph

from Bothell, Wa U.S.A.

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

Before I had played this guitar I played a lot of Les Pauls and HSS Stratocaster Deluxes out of my Marshall amp but when I played this guitar IT CHANGED EVERYTHING! After I got one I couldn't help but play it more than any of my other guitars. NOTHING SOUNDS LIKE THIS GUITAR!!! The leads cry in a beatiful tone that will drive your neighbor crazy! The rythm, well let's just say you don't sound like random noise in the background! Personally I love the sound Seymour Duncan humbuckings have to offer but that's not the point!.This guitar will take you and make you into a god (Metaphorically speaking).(I often times imagine myself as Micheal Ammott or Alex lifeson but what ever!)The point is if you thinking about buying this guitar GET IT OR YOU'LL REGRET IT!!

The C-1 FR blows em away!

By x6661xVengeancex

from Clarksburg, WV

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

Alright, first of all, let me be honest..I bought this guitar because I'm a major Avenged Sevenfold fan, and i knew their lead guitarist, Synyster Gates, had an amazing tone and rich sound in their recordings and perfomances. After buying the C-1 FR, I was correct. It amaing, great sound, killer lows and screamin' highs, I personally added a couple of Seymour Duncan SH-6 Distortion pickups, and it also increased its performance. Understand simply buying someone's guitar won't make you sound like them, for example, I can't buy Synyster Gates' hands haha. But this guitar does indeed resemble that mellodic metal sound of Sevenfold. Great guitar, especially for the price, highly recommended that you at least try it out!!

!!SWEET VALUE!!

By DR. GORI

from Chicago,IL.

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

I recently bought this guitar and boy, is it sweet! I spent a couple months searching for the perfect axe for under $500 and I found it. I almost bought the Ibanez RG370DX because it was a little cheaper but the schecter c1fr blows it away. For $450 this guitar was a killer deal! It plays like butter and the floyd rose locking trem stays in tune perfectly. It came set up perfectly right out of the box...the action, intonation, neck releif, and even the string guage was exactly to my liking. The only weird thing about this guitar is that the top knob was for the neck pickup.(usually, it's for the bridge pickup..at least on every guitar I've ever played).I switched the pots around so the bridge pickup is on top cause' I like to use the knob like a fader/volume pedal. the duncan designed pickups also sound sweet. I'm so happy I got this guitar! I totally reccommend this axe for any player into heavy music! I think my next axe is gonna be the Schecter S1-Blada Bling. Kudos to schecter for their quality axes!!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Jimmy

from atalanta, GA

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

this guitar has caught my eye for a while. The way it looks is beautiful espically in white. The bridge pick up has a nice deep distortion n the neck is warm and has a nice tone. The whammy bar is too fun n the guitar stays in tune perfectly. THIS IS THE BEST GUITAR UNDER $500. I would reccomend this too any intermidete or advanced guitar players.

Perfect guitar for any Metal Head

By Ibanez FREAK

from Modesto CAlifornia

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

I spent two hours playing just this guitar and fell in love with it pretty much the moment I plugge it in. The stock pickups sound great, (I'd probably step up to some EMGs when I buy mine though). The tremolo stays i tune perfectly, everything about this guitar screams "BUY ME". Now I've just gotta save up the money for this beauty.

OMG! It's like an SZ...but better!!!

By IbanezFanGoneAwry

from NJ

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

Sweet. A guitar that looks like an SZ. I like the look of the SZ but desire something spicier. The Shechter C - 1 FR looks like it's that guitar. Duncan(The Sovereign of Pickups) designed active pickups, Floyd Rose Tremolo, Mahogony Body, Rosewood Fingerboard....it's like my RG321MH Meets an SZ for an insanely good price....must...play...soon!!!

C-1 FR=AMAZING

By AsperityX

from Undisclosed

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

I got this guitar recently, and when i first laid eyes on it i fell in love. The looks are amazing, gloss is definatly no exxageration. And the sound is even better. Schecter never lets down, with duncan designed pick-ups pick up every sound, and the floyd rose gives it that edge that gives perfection. The three knobs and switch make the perfect adjustments. in short....GET THIS GUITAR. definately the best buy under 500

great guitar, 3 problems

By garret

from palmdale, CA

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

the guitar its self is great, the active pickups, and the neck and body are amazing. FIRST PROBLEM the tremolo system was fun at first, but it always put my guitar out of tune, even if i locked the nuts. my guitar teacher even had to re-do it because the alighnment was off, i had to pay $50 dollars for him to carve outs some wood, because it was to far forward. SECOND PROBLEM the paint cracks and chips very easy, inside the grooves where the body meets the neck, the paint cracked for no reason, and all around the back corner of the guitar it chips alot THIRD PROBLEM i thought the mahogany wood would be really good, but all of the scerws strip out of it really easy. th nuts for the strap have pulled out on me, and the screws to hold in the jack are constantly loose. so these are a few things to look out for with this guitar, but besides them, i am really happy with the guitar

Awesome Guitar!!!

By A Guy

from Nevada, Las Vegas

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

I got this guitar for my birthday. It's just awesome! The pickups just sound awesome! I can also tap easily with the right setting on my amp. The neck is smooth and the tremolo is amazing! I love the way it looks and the headstock. The only down side is that it takes a long time to tune it. But it's worth it! I love the sound in drop C tuning, and I love the white color. I recommend any metal lover to buy this!

YEAH!

By drew

from sugar land, tx

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

this is a really good guitar for pretty much any player who wants a good tone and comfortable playing. it does take some getting used to and and the body can be a bit heavy but it can really scream when you want it to. the floyd rose doesn't have much space when you pull up but it works i recomend getting some EMG pickups with DR JH-10 strings. rock on

great for metal

By floyd rose

from birmingham,al

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

i went out on a limb and ordered this guitar without playing it and i got lucky too. this axe feels pretty good and after all the abuse i've put it through in the two years i've owned it(it's been knocked over off the stand.....kicked and spit on....and played real hard) i have gotten my money's worth. the only complaint i have with it is the clean tones aren't really all that warm. thats the only complaint. if your looking for a good strat-style guitar that has that metal look and feel.....try this one out.
