Amazing color-Amazing sound

By Chained to the Grave

from Atlanta Ga

Ok, I've had this guitar for a couple of months. I play it with a line 6 spider three 75 watt amp and it sounds amazing!! I love the sound that the duncan designed hunbuckers put out. Schecter got the job done with this guitar. Go c-1 plus! Also I think that the color of this guitar is cooler than any other guitar. I have the vintage sunburst color and it freaking rocks! Also i'd like to reccomend that if you buy this guitar and use it alot, then get one of those special sprays that make the finish look brand new. I recommend getting 'Power Chord' because it makes the finish look amazing although its kindof small and expensive. your friends will think that the guitar is brand new everytime they see it! I'm going to get another bottle of Power Chord this week. Back to the sound of the guitar: this guitar has an awesome AWESOME distortion sound! Better than any guitar that I have played. The clean sound is really good too and like the description says is pretty good with playing the blues. I don't play blues but when I made something up and played it on clean it sounded COOL! I love almost all rock so when I play that on this guitar its just like when any famous band plays it like my chemical romance or SlipKnot. This guitar is an amazing buy and it should be $300.00 more! Get this guitar if you are an intermediate player that loves rock or a starting out guy whos rich and wants to impress thier friends in both sound and looks!!

the best guitar I have ever owned and i have 7!

By xschecterfiendx

from Cape Coral, FL

i've been playing for 7 years and quite honestly this is one of the best guitars for metal, blues, or jazz. Seymour Duncan Design pickups aren't the best but they are still very responsive and are of amazing quality! I myself own 2 Schecter basses and two electric guitars. These ARE the best guitars and basses you can get without paying an arm and a leg. The Grover tuners are the best quality tuners on the market. and it is a neck-thru body which provides for really clear tone. great for recording! Im actually getting another one in a few days!

Schecter is amazing for this one.

By guitardude13975

from Kalamazoo, MI

I have a wide range of tastes in music, and I wanted a guitar that could fit them all. At first I wanted a Jackson Dinky, which I almost bought because it sounded alright and had EMG's and a Floyd Rose. Then at the last second, while waiting for the cashier to ring it up, I picked this one up. IT BLEW MY MIND! I have a Line 6 Spider 3 75 Watt amp, so that's what I plugged it into. It could go from blues to reggae to metal to anything else I wanted, and still have the crispest sound of any guitar I've played. Although the pickups are just Duncan DESIGNED, they have the sound of real Seymours. The coil tap feature is awesome too. Not to mention this guitar (I got the Ruby Fade) has killer looks and sweet inlays. Only reason I gave the features a 4.5 is I still wish I had a Floyd Rose or at least a Whammy Bar, but this guitar always stays in tune anyway so I'll live. This is the best guitar I have ever played in this price range; for any style.

from Franklin, VA

After I came home from USMC bootcamp, I wanted to reward my self with a nice guitar. I looked into schecter for awhile and saw this guitar in the store and couldn't take my eyes off it. I plugged it in, and after playing it for a few seconds, I was amazed! I couldn't put it down and bought it. The action on the neck is fast, the tone is amazing, it never goes out of tune, the quality of this guitar rocks and it looks awesome! ROCK ON!

Schecter C-1 is awesome

By Smolderin'

from North Providence, RI

I've played primarily Strats for over 25 years. I've recently decided to shop around for a good Les Paul(humbuckers, wide tonal range), and, after deciding that the only Les Paul worth buying was a Gibson(thousands of bucks), I decided to check the C-1 out. This guitar fits my style better than a Gibson Les Paul ever could. Shaped like a Strat, neck and pickups of a Les Paul. Through the body neck. The tone is unreal through my Hot Rod DeVille( I actually have the C-1 Classic). My problem now is: I need to buy another as my spare axe for gigs.

another guitar

By boardhead5

from Camas, Wa.

I was looking for an Ibanez jet king. my wife was asking why I wanted that guitar and I told her about the coil tap. she wanted to know what it was so i looked around an found this schector with coil taps. I plugged it in to show her the sounds and this guitar played sweet and sounded great. She said, why don't you just get this one. It was a little more money than the jet king but sometimes you have to listen to your wife. The more I play it the more I like the feel and sound. This is one sweet guitar. I already have 2 Guilds, 3 Peaveys, 1 Tiesco and now a Shector

from National Park, NJ

I own an LTD as of right.I thought that was a nice guitar.Then I played a custom Ibanez that was priced at $1000, and I thought that was an awsome guitar.But then I started lookin at schecter guitars and fell in love.For the price, it's worth every cent.Theses guitars are very well put together.They are very easy to play.You'll be able to play songs you never thought you were able to.With the set neck, you don't have to worry about the neck falling apart on you.The action on these are set perfect.No fret buz,and no dead notes.For the pick ups being Duncan Designed, and not real Duncan pick ups they have deep tone for metal and a crisp sound for clean.I played Metal, Hardcore, Inde, Rock, and blues on this guitar.Everything sounded great on it.If you want a guitar that's well put together, then consider looking at this guitar.It will not disapoint you.

Schecter won my lust....!

By Ken Visger

from Michigan

I have to honestly admit that I liked the looks of the schecters, but I have never liked the way they felt when I played them. Until now.... I have been an Ibanez RG fan for so long, that I felt it necessary to discover new options. and when I played the C-1 Plus, I fell in love instantly. After getting it home, I plugged in my RG and played for a few minutes, then for an honest comparison, I plugged in my New Schecter and played that too. I was astounded. The ease of playing was the same, the feel to hold was (ahem! - forgive me I choke to admit this)more balanced and felt a bit better. as far as tonal differences, I have a pull-tap switch that makes all the difference in versatiliy, but the HB bridge set was so close to my RG, I didn't have to reset my knobs (whew!) but the lows were deeper (that is the Mahogany vs Basswood) and the highs were crisper. A little bit fuller tones, but not excessive. Just the same, My infamous love for the RG just took on a sidecar!! I also have demoted the RG to my backup axe....

Schecter C-1+, legendary guitar

By johnfrusciantefan89

from Fresnoooo, CA

I researched for an electric guitar for most of my senior year in high school. I looked high and low, all sorts of brands from fender and ibanez to the small brands like kramer. no guitar brand out there stood out to me more than schecter, and the c-1+ was definetly the best for the price. the c-1+ is AMAZING, it can play any style of music you want. its really great with a CRATE amp, i have a beginners 15 watt amp and it still blows my mind. it can play anything from Metallica to RHCP and beyond, it does it all. the fact that there is no tremolo makes it easy to drop to tunings at any time to fit your mood. sound isnt all that this puppy's got, i've got the black cherry and its got looks that'll grab someones attention like a hot chic at the beach. all in all its a fantastic guitar, perfect for intermediate players and great for pros in my opinion. It should definetly be in every guitarists collection.
