I walked into Guitar Center to simply browse the guitars, not even really meaning to buy anything. One of the salespeople was tuning and playing a number of various guitars (Fender, Ibanez, Gibsons, etc.) I stood by listening to him play, and when he picked up the Schecter Gryphon, it immediately caught my eye. Then when he tuned and started to play it, it caught my attention even more. After he went through a few other guitars, I asked him to go back to the Gryphon, and after looking at the price, was simply amazed at how nice of a guitar it sounded. I put it on layaway that day, and picked it up just yesterday. Simply amazing sound for the price, just as good if not better than some even more expensive guitars.

I really liked the look of the guitar, so I bought it. It is beautiful. I did noticed that all of the frets were factory ground flat. It was too noisy in the store to tell, but the fret buzz was substantial. Took it for a professional setup and had them file the sharp edges & make the frets round & set intonation ($80) and it still had unacceptable fret buzz. Oh, and the neck attaches at a slant, so there's no easy way to just change the neck. I took it back. I've decided that I'll try a Dean Vendetta next.

Rockin At Almost 60

By Sergeant Wiz

from Hartland, Wisconsin

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

I "Rocked" in the mid to late 60's until Uncle Sam Wanted Me. Back then we had great guitars & amps but were limited to choices. About 15 years ago at the age of 43 I got back into "Rockin". I couldn't believe how many different brands now exist. Guitar Center introduced me to Schecter. It was love at first riff. Don't tell Schecter but we're stealing these guitars. For the money....They can't be beat. Trust me! There is wisdom in age. Keep Rockin.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

I recently bought a schecter gryphon (caramel burst) over the holidays. Ive been playing for about a year and 1/2 and wanted to upgrade my guitar. I was looking at a few different guitars, all more expensive, when i happened to play this guitar in gc. I had always seen them, thought they were pretty, but they didnt have the name that goes with years of guitar heritage, like gibson, fender, etc. Anyway after playing this thing on the advice of a friend, i immediately knew this was the guitar of choice. Not only was it perfectly built, but was several hundred bucks cheaper than the others i was looking at. The pickups are hot, the action low, and the looks are sweet. You just cant go wrong with this guitar.

Buy it It's Worth It.

By Andrew

from Stockbridge, Ga

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for well over 2 years now. Like most, this was my first (and only) Schecter. I've played Strats, Warlocks, Washburns, everything, and this guitar overall is the best! The sustain is incredible, and paired with a Line 6 amp, the sound is amazing. Never goes out of tune, and I play at least 2 shows a week and practice daily. The pickups are amazingly hot, and the coil tap comes in handy for blues. I play everything from metal to soft Christian, and this guitar does it all!

Review

By Albatross belle

from kansas City

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

The workmanship, style and the quality of the parts of this Guitar are very nice. The look, action and controls are of a very high quality. My only complaint is with the sound. This is why I am compelled to write this review. If you are purely a metal head who plays only power chords or single string notes you will like this "ax". When you play more than three strings with any kind of gain it will sound like mush. I'm not a tone perfectionist but I do like to hear what I'm playing. With new pickups I'm sure this will make a big difference. It would be a good idea to play this guitar through my amp before the purchase. I would have shopped and (listened) more carefully.

Great Guitar

By Blah

from Portland OR

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

This was the second guitar I bought, after playing for about three years. I love the extra long neck, and the Duncan pick ups. The sustain is relativly good, but it could be better. The look is good, I like te flame top. Overall, it's a great guitar, good for a semi-experienced player. I would recomend this guitar to anyone who wants a good guitar, for lots of shredding.

The Best For: Shredding

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

This guitar is great. I have unfortunately had it rained on (long story to that) but overall it is a great guitar. The thing works fine, like nothing ever happened. It shreds nice, doesn't work well with the pinch harmonics. Well it works well but not as good as the Schecter S-1. But you will not regret buying this guitar even if you want pinch harmonics. This guitar is great. Love the extra long neck. Its a great guitar

Awsome Deal!

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

You can't find a better guitar at this price! I had looked at several other brands, they could not compare to the quality and value of the Gryphon. This guitar was even in tune straight out of the box! From bone crushing metal to squeaky clean, this guitar delivers!

New player

By GuitarNoob

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

This guitar has great features for the dollar spent. I am returning to guitar after a 20 year absence, and this guitar delivers what I'm looking for. A great range of sound can be achieved by use of the coil tap, and the guitar is very solid. The action is a bit high for me, so I will probably bring this in to be set up more for lead (it's more set up for rythym).

Great Value

By Sliquenick

from Portland, OR

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

I cannot say enough good things about the Schecter Gryphon. I went into the Guitar Center without knowing what I wanted. After playing nearly every guitar in the price range, picking this one was easy. It's versatile, robust, and easy to play. If you're thinking of a guitar in this price range, it is hard to go wrong with this one.

Holy Hybrid! It's Awesome!

By Storm Warrior

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

What an amazing guitar at an entry level price! Clean, well detailed finish; great looks; amazing playability AND tone, tone, tone! It's like a Les Paul/Stratocaster hybrid. Single coil tones will twang clean and the humbucking mode rocks the paint off of the walls. I think that anybody searching for tonal versatility would be wise to give this baby a try. The only flaw mine had was a loose tone control which kicked in with a ground on occasion. Schecter's warranty covers it. Smokin' sweet, Schecter!

This thing ROCKS!

By GuitarNewbie

from Fairfax, VA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

I bought the charcoal gray Gryphon 2 months ago to learn to play guitar and I became the envy of all my friends that have been playing for years! Out of the box it plays perfectly and it's definitely a great value given it's top notch quality, components, amazing (and beautiful finish) and of course the sound! The cord stopped working after about 4 weeks however, but I don't think most guitars even come with a cable so still a great value.

By Big ,E

from Jacksonville FL

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

I own a Epiphone Les Paul & a Schecter Gryphon its like night & day. I was going to buy a Gibson les paul for the tone intell I payed the Schecter sound as good as the Gibson but the pice was cheaper. The tone of the Schecter is clean compare to my Epiphone. I play my Schecter all the time now. I have not touched my Epiphone ever since I bought my Schecter. The coil tap is cool you can make it sound like a Fender strat or a Gibson les paul. The quality and the looks of this guitar is awesome. This guitar is a performance guitar. Good job Schecter.

from dont worry about it

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

I just recently bought my shcecter. I bought and ephiphone les paul and it broke so I brought it back. The guy there told me about schecters and when I played I was blown away. Its light, sounds amazing, and has a great price. Gibson better watch out because it seems as though schecter makes a better guitar.

Great For Beginer and Up

By RJS352

from Maryland

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

No matter what you're into this is the guitar for you. It's got a coil-tap system so you can easily switch from Fender Strat to Gibson Les Paul. Its got a steady tone and sounds good in any amp with any effects. Its sturdy and light-weight so shred away. Totally, worth the money for someone who's just learning and professionals. Once again, totally worth it.

nice guitar

By gibsonboy

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Gryphon Limited Edition Flametop Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar 3 weeks ago and I'm loving it. The frets are nice, and the coil tapping system works great also. It doesn't go out of tune, and sounds great when you tune the sixth string all the down to B. This guitar has a reasonable price and it is recommnended for musicians in any genres.
