Very Pleased Customer

By Billy Menton

from Gadsden, Alabama

I got this guitar used online from Guitar Center for $352 with the hard shell case. I was a little scared to find out that it was made in South Korea and I hate to mail order. I have over 20 guitars in my collection at the moment, and they must meet three criteria with me... play good, sound good, and look good. This guitar met all three and I am glad to let a Schecter into the collection. When I got the guitar I wasn't very pleased with the setup, but after I played around with it I was able to get the action where I like it, and I do like it low. The pickups have a brighter and louder tone than the Les Pauls. The 14" radius is a little different after being used to the 12" on the Gibson. The finish is super, and I love the inlay, the locking bridge and tail piece, and the machine heads are cool too. The ebony on the fret board is a quality piece. The cut away feature feels so much better than a Les Paul. I have no complaints about the instrument. The service and shipping from Guitar Center was top notch.

This is THE ONE

By WES PREMOE

from Snoqualmie, Washington

This guitar is outstanding. I pre-ordered this guitar two years ago and it has not failed me in anyway. This guitar has excellent resonance, a quick neck while also having an outstanding low end. I play a variety of genres, and let me tell you, this does it all AND it has a split coil switch. Honestly I cannot find a better guitar. Buy it.

BUY IT!

By nATE BAUER

from Mobridge, SD

I have owned my solo 6 custom for about 9 months. I wanted a LP single cutaway style. I wanted quality passive humbuckers. I wanted a quality brige and tuners. I wanted a neck that didn't feel like a Louisville Slugger. I played lower end PRS, ESP and every Epiphone Les Paul made. None even came close to the quality, playability and look of this guitar. Anyone who buys any of the above guitars over the Schecter is simply going to regret it. Oh yeah, I also played many high end Les Pauls. Guess what. No difference. None. Other than price! If you can afford a Les Paul, buy one. Yes, it will hold its value. If you want an exceptional guitar that you will play and never want to put it down, buy the Schecter. The pickups are incredible. Real Duncans. Not cheap versions. I never intended to use the split coils as I have a nice strat also but I find myself using the single coil mode more all the time. I cannot say enough about this guitar! Buy it!

Awesome

By Connor

from Sparta NJ

This guitar with the locking tuners, split coil Duncan pickups has to be the best guitar you can get for the money, The playability and classic looks rival guitars in the 2k range, and here it is for a fraction of it. I could not be happier with my purchase.

Schecter Solo-6 Custom

By Old Dude that plays Gitar

from Burleson, Texas

I recently purchased the Solo-6 Custom Faded Vintage Sunburst. What a surprise. This guitar is not only beautiful in looks but, the quality and craftmanship of this instrument is absolutely amazing. The weight and feel of this guitar is great. The SD Humbuckers are exactly what you would expect with unbelievable sustain. I had this guitar shipped to my home and out of the box all I had to do was minor tuning and it played great. Setup was perfect and entonation right on the money. I really can't say enough good things about this guitar. Buy it and you'll be glad you did. It's hands down the best bang for your $$$ in today's economy. I own high end guitars by other manufactures that you all know and to get the same quality of guitar from those folks you would have to pay at least $2500. for starters. Do yourself a favor and go out on a limb and purchase a Schecter Solo 6 Custom, you want be returning it to GC but, you will be falling in love with it.

Well for a beginning blues player anyway. You have to hold one of these to believe how great they feel. Every detail is perfect and the sound is incredible at any price.
