Lets start with some history, Schecter started as a high end company with no guitars under $2000 dollars but recently they have discovered ways to produce near the same quality for thousands less. The S-1 elite is an amazing example of Schecter's low price, yet awesome guitars. Ok now to the praises... I went into guitar center planning to get a schecter but played all types of guitars, and no gibson-including the les paul and Sg supreme- couldnt stand up to schecter. This guitar is a good mid-range schecter that has amazing sustain, stays in tune forever, blows you away distorted, and then susprises you with the warm, clean sound. I could go on forever but put shortly, if you want a versital guitar skip everyone else and head to the schecter section.

I bought the Schecter expecting a gibon, that was the problem is that if expecting a certain sound you will never create a sound. In the Scorpoins view it would be a new hard rock sound good luck to ever owns one I think the sound is out there.

the guitar for metal mayhem

By rodger vengeance

from Baltimore

well ive had this guitar for a long while and i have to say its the best one i own. i play it all the time and since i love A7X its great for me becuase its got the same tone as Zacky's guitar because he plays the same thing so i highly recamend this guitar to anyone who loves metal or likes to play clean. the grover tuners and duncan pickups make this guitar worth all the money in the world so i suggest you go down to the nearest guitar center and play this beast!

Out of Nowhere!!!

By Mr.PlayMore

from Seattle, WA.

I went to the store, originally intending to buy a Fender Strat, and came home with this!!! Up until this point, I had thought the guitars looked good, but had never played one. I was REALLY surprised. This thing is versatile. You owe it to yourself to try one out.

Looks Great sounds OK

By Samoyed

from NY

My nephew has this guitar and I got the chance to play it extensively. It is VERY nice looking...just stellar. The medium jumbo frets are a welcome change from some of Schecter's super jumbo frets. A volume AND tone control for each PU would be nice. Now the Pickups...those crazy Duncan designed pickups. I simply hate them. The neck pickup is muddy..at least through a Crate amp which is notorious for not being very bright sounding. My nephew decided to get EMGs to get his, well whatever they call modern loud music sound. I had a C1 Elite with the same pickups. I sold it and got a Les Paul. I think this is a great guitar. It's just that the PUs don't do it justice. For those tech types, I would say that they are low output and the neck PU is all midrange. For the price U can't go wrong. The worst that could happen is that U replace the PUs.

Top Quality For You Money

By Guitar Man 1954

from Lubbock, Texas

I have been playing guitars for approx. 45 years. Recently I visited Guitar Center in Lubbock, Texas, where I had they the chance to play on a Schector S-1 Elite guitar. I found that no matter where you played on the neck, it was very easy to play. The guitar has a sound quality that is second to none. Also it is really a great looking guitar. I am hoping that very soon I will be able to purchase the guitar. As I said before, if a person want's a great guitar that sound's and look's good, the Schector S-1 Elite is the way to go.

awesome guitar

By loveguitars 20210

from Madison, WI

I bought this guitar about a year ago it its amazing. The pickups are great, it has a powerful, full sound to it when you play. I would say its good for almost any type of music, mabye geared a little more towards rock though. It is also a road-worthy guitar, so if your playing shows it will hold up really well even for weekly shows it will be awesome (As long as you take care of it obviously). It is an amazing sounding and looking guitar, I would highly recommend it.

Fantastic!

By sayWhaaaa?

from SoCal

The Schecter S-1 Elite is one of the finest guitars I have played. It is lightweight, easy to handle when resting on your lap, and is very versatile. It features a set neck, Gothic Crosses inlayed on the fretboard, and has a Single Coil Tap by lifting up the last Tone Control. It comes with 2 Dunlop Humbuckers and the S-1's beautiful body along with Ablone Inlay along the body and neck makes it hard not to look at. The Tone is fantastic, and makes a great guitar for any kind of genre of music. Overall, the Schecter S-1 Elite is a great guitar considering how much it is. To find this kind of quality in another kind of guitar, you would be paying hundreds of dollars more.
