    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Corsair Bigsby Electric Guitar:

    I wanted this guitar really bad. So bad I went through three of them but at what point do you give up? Three strikes you're out Schecter. I called their Customer Service Dept. in California only to argue with some curmudgeon claiming to be a luthier that flat frets in excess of .025-.05 inches are acceptable. This has a disastrous effect on intonation, fret-buzz, and bend feel. These guitars felt like you were bending a string on sandpaper, and the buzz was totally unacceptable. And this is normal for Schecter? I measured the frets at the flattest, widest point on all three guitars and my calipers showed in excess of .05 inch which is approximately 3/64" or 1.28mm. This is totally unacceptable considering guitars half the price of this model had nicely crowned and even polished frets depending on the manufacturer. You could hear the frets buzzing just about every note/chord plucked or strummed. I thought maybe with the first one or two we got a bad guitar, but Mr. know-it-all at Schecter's guitar shop advised me otherwise, this is the norm. I never even left Guitar Center with any of these that's how bad they were. They need two days worth of crowning/polishing done, then you're left with no fret height for a future crown and polish. They ground the tops of the frets completely off with a machine! They were also left so sharp on the edges of the grinding that you can shave your fingernail on the edge. Schecter never even answered my e-mails. Obviously they just don't care about the quality of their guitars, or a customer's concerns. Uncool. I refer to 'Premier Guitar' article dated 9/18/07 by George Ellison 'About Fret Crowning' it states: 'Anything over .025" (index finger nail thickness) would be noticeable'. Especially as the width is increased to say up to .050" and beyond. There is no argument, this is purely fact. A mathematical calculation to be exact. Spend your money elsewhere, this guitar is a DUD! Guitar Center's tech saw this as an issue as well.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Corsair Bigsby Electric Guitar:

    Really cool guitar. Feels and sounds great. Looks incredible. But I had a couple big issues right out of the box... The pickups were not potted so i was getting constant microphonic high pitched squealing feedback. I don't use a ton of gain and it was still happening to the point where I had to stop playing it live in my 90s cover band until i had the pickups potted. The toggle switch also had an intermittent issue where sometimes I would change pickups and there would be no sound... There was a bad connection in the switch and I needed to replace it. Now that those issues have been taken care of, it's great!

    Wide fretboard and thin neck. Dark sounding neck pickup. Very different from my Les Paul in those areas. Which is fine, but I just thought you should know!

      Stellar.

      By Matthew W.

      from Durham, NC

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Corsair Bigsby Electric Guitar:

      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

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Corsair Bigsby Electric Guitar:

      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.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Corsair Bigsby Electric Guitar:

      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

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Corsair Bigsby Electric Guitar:

      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.
