Rockers, hold on to your hats, because Schecter Guitar Research’s Hybrid C-1 Platinum electric guitar has the heavy bite and slick style you have been looking for. Designed with a grand fusion of the most sought-after qualities of their Hellraiser and SLS models, this maple topped mahogany design is revamped with a more contoured arch and upper access cutaway shredders will love. The Schecter’s C-1 Platinum neck is comprised of three maple parts for added strength, so you can rock out without worrying about it warping over time. Guitarists will also love the cool, transparent high-gloss black burst finish complemented by the chrome hardware.

A Body Players Will Love

The C-1 Platinum's body is a combination of beautiful mahogany with a quilted maple top and features Schecter’s Ultra Access neck joint, so players can approach the full fretboard with comfort and ease. The double-cutaway design and inset neck on this 25.5"-scale axe makes riding the lightning up and down the 24 frets of its rosewood fingerboard a breeze.

Shield of Armor Electronics

Hybrid C-1 Platinum offers its durable EMG Active 81/85 pickups for an impressive range of tonal capabilities. The creation of EMG's intensely detailed 81 pickup ignited a standard of ample high-end piercing and a smooth sustain. Used in the bridge position, these pickups will have your sound cutting through any brimming mix.

Naturally Exuberant Rosewood Fretboard

This black beauty features a 3-piece maple neck topped with a rosewood fretboard. Rosewood is a favored fretboard material because it contains natural oils that are enhanced by a player's daily grip. The sound is enriched more so than its maple counterpart because overflowing tones are essentially absorbed back into the oily wooden pores, truly balancing the tonal output. The Hybrid C-1 Platinum also comes with new platinum fretboard inlays, carbon fiber binding and glow-in-the-dark embellishments.
