    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-6 Elite Electric Guitar:

    Bought this a few days ago just to play something a little different. I'm a epiphone guy and this stacks up greatly to my Les Paul classic or explorer,both epiphones and 5 stars by the way. I was surprised at the great blues tone you can get and yes it's a metal monster. The neck is slim and smooth and awesome for smaller hands.Even with the cheaper strings right out of the box after 30 straight minutes of serious blues bending stayed in tune with a small adjustment to the g string witch I was murdering. Only adjustment I had to make out of the box was raise the low side of the bridge slightly( maybe 1 1/2 to 2 turns) for fret buzz starting around the 14th fret then played perfectly all the way up the neck.And guess what, the bolt on neck is NOT clunky or in the way when getting up to to the end of the fret board.I guess instead of saying all this I could have just said WOW.

      This guitar is at a great value and price. The quality is pretty great. Nice sounding pick ups. If you're into distorted shred, or playing clean, this guitar can do the job. Stays in tune well. Highly recomended.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-6 Elite Electric Guitar:

        Looks good, sounds good, plays effortlessly. I chose this over several other guitars I tried at my local Guitar Center. I expected to pay more, but this guitar just kept calling me back. Pickups sound great through my Blues Jr. III, the guitar stays in tune, all frets are nicely finished - no sharp edges, and the finish on the guitar looks great. I use this guitar for recording, practice, and live gigs. Extremely happy with my purchase.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-6 Elite Electric Guitar:

          I started playing a little back in high school now picking it up again 10 years later. Bought a starter launch pack to get back into the groove of playing but quickly noticed the quality wasn't the greatest. Took it back after two weeks and picked this up instead and have been very impressed. Sounds good, feels good, and looks good!

          Beautifully solid guitar that looks more expensive than it is. Shipped quickly and the guitar was well packaged to prevent damage. My son has been playing since he received it as a gift... he's in love! I can't really speak to how well it will hold up, but it is working great so far.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-6 Elite Electric Guitar:

          Got this during the Guitar-A-Thon sale. This guitar feels amazing. The neck is so easy to move around when playing everything from neck-spanning riffs to solos. Sounds fantastic too. If you want a great guitar without breaking the pocketbook, this is the way to go.

          Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-6 Elite Electric Guitar:

          Well, right off the bat I was so excited to get this guitar. So I got it out of the box and strummed and saw that it was horrible out of tune. I was going to put new strings on it anyways. So I got the new strings on and it was not set up properly. So I am still trying to set it up right now and it has been a couple hours after I got the guitar... it is a very good instrument though.
