Comments about Schecter Guitar Research S-1 Electric Guitar:

This is the best sounding guitar I have. I wasn't expecting the clean sound on it to be so good. But it sounds very full and clear compared to my Squier Affinity or Epi Les Paul. Of course, it cost more than them, too. But it was worth the difference. I play mostly classic rock, like Cream, Hendrix, The Doors, and Grateful Dead, and it works great for all that stuff. Mine isn't exactly like the one pictured. It says S-1+. It doesn't have a pickguard, but has the exact same body shape, saddle, price, etc., so this appears to just be the latest model.
