Its three-piece mahogany neck is shaped to deliver comfortable, effortless play with an ebony fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets. The semi-hollow maple body is topped with flamed maple and fixed with two Duncan Designed humbuckers (with coil-splitting) that whisper and wail with plenty of firepower.

By Matthew W.

from Durham, NC

This is a magnificent guitar. I am thinking about selling the rest of my guitars because of it. I can get any sound that I would ever want out of this thing. I have played the ES335 before and I truly believe this guitar stands up to it. Plus, it's gorgeous (I have the walnut). If you want an absolutely stellar semi-hollow but don't want to spend a couple thousand on it, I can't emphasize how much I recommend this.

Outstanding value...

By Ron Milligan

from Oklahoma City, OK

I bought this guitar online (walnut finish), sight unseen because it wasn't stocked in the local GC. I was not disappointed, if anything it is even better than I expected. The fit and finish is top shelf, the setup is near perfect and it plays and sounds great. If this guitar was made in the USA it would probably cost $2-3 grand. GC didn't have the Schecter case so I bought a SKB made for the 335 and it works perfectly. I can't attest to it's reliability because I've only had it for a couple of weeks but everything is tight, the switches and knobs all seem to be high quality. If you are looking for a 335 style guitar I don't think you can do much better. Highly recommended. On a side note I have to give GC's online service two thumbs up, I ordered this on a Tuesday evening and received it the following Thursday morning.

Wow! Great guitar.

By Joe B.

from Salisbury,N.C.

My first love is the Blues, so when I set out to buy a semi-hollow body guitar, I really did my homework. I looked at Gibsons, Gretch, all the major brands, but I kept coming back to the Schecter Corsair w/Bigsby mainly because of all the great reviews I kept reading, never found even one bad review. I bought a Schecter Dameon Series for my son and was impressed with the quality. So I bought the Corsair. What a beautiful piece of workmanship, love the warm tones I can get out of this thing. The photographs don't do it justice, the craftsmanship is flawless, top shelf hardware, and the Bigsby tailpiece just sets it off. When I'm not playing it I'm staring at it. I'm someone who appreciates quality. My first guitar was a Gibson Fretless Wonder I bought back in the early 70's, since then I've bought several Fender Strats and 3 Martin acoustics but I've always put sound and playability above good looks. The Corsair has it all. I was prepared to spend $3,000 to $4,000 for the right guitar, glad I didn't, buy one, you'll love it.

Quality Guitar

By Corsair Buyer

from California

I just bought this guitar about a week ago (Got a sweet deal). I started out with an epiphone Dot and I had problems from the beginning with that one. So I turned it in before the 30 day period and got this guitar. It is so much better. The quality of this guitar is amazing. (MADE IN KOREA). Schecter makes the guitar with quality parts. Grover tuners and Duncan Design pickups with coil spitting which is cool. Over all, it's a little more pricey than the Dot, about $300 more, but well worth it. If you have the extra money and are stuck between the DOT and the Corsair, get the Carsair it's a great guitar and is made to last.
