Schecter Guitar Research

collapse expand iconDescription

The Schecter Guitar Research C-1 Platinum FR-Sustainiac electric guitar delivers the high-output tones and fast playability that metal guitarists crave. Its mahogany body provides a resonant foundation for the active EMG 81 (bridge) and Sustainiac (neck) humbucking pickups, which produce aggressive tones with endless sustain. The Floyd Rose Special tremolo bridge enables radical divebombs while keeping the guitar in tune.

Sustainiac Pickup Generates Infinite Sustain

The Sustainiac pickup in the neck position can produce infinite sustain at the touch of a switch. By using magnetic fields to vibrate the strings, this pickup sustains notes far beyond their normal decay. Guitarists can unleash otherworldly squeals, drones, and harmonics or use the effect more subtly to fatten up power chords and single notes.

EMG 81 Pickup Delivers Cutting High-Gain Tone

The EMG 81 active humbucker in the bridge position provides the tight, high-output tone that modern metal demands. With its focused midrange and well-defined low end, the EMG 81 pickup cuts through dense mixes with ease while retaining note clarity. The 9-volt battery powering the pickups also provides a noise-free signal chain for silent performance between songs.

Ultra-Fast Neck and Cutaway for Shredding Leads

The C-1 Platinum FR-Sustainiac features a 3-piece maple neck with a thin profile and 24 extra-jumbo frets for lightning-fast leads and legato runs. An ultra-access cutaway provides unfettered access to the upper frets. The 12"-16" compound radius rosewood fretboard has a flatter surface along the treble side for more comfortable bendings and wider interval stretches.

Premium Components and Construction

From the Grover tuners to the chrome hardware and binding, premium components are used throughout the C-1 Platinum FR-Sustainiac. The guitar is professionally set up in Schecter's California workshop to strict quality standards before shipping to provide the best playing experience out of the box.
