Customer Reviews
2 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Schecter Custom Elite"
Sound: Pickups are weak. They should put better quality pickups in considering the price point for this guitar Feature: The woods, fret wire, tuners, and finish are top notch. The pickups are the least useful. Ease of Use: The guitar I recieved may have been a lemon. It was not playable to me. The strings needed to be adjusted high to avoid fret buzz. Quality: The guitar was put together well. Like I said, mine may have been a lemon that somehow got through there QC department. Value: The selling price seems a little steep for what you get. ( 2049.00) Price should be in the 1300.00 to 1600.00 price range. Manufacturer Support: I contacted zzounds and returned the guitar. The Wow Factor: The guitar appealed to me, that is why I ordered it. You have a 50/50 shot of getting a guitar that you are happy with when you buy online without trying it out first. All you have to go on are Utube vids and blogs on the internet. Overall: The parts of this guitar are good. Pickups need an upgrade. Shecter should have put better pickups in to begin with. I had alot of noise thru my Engl. The string action was out by a long shot. I could not get it low enough without fret buzz. The issue was that the nut was set too low in the neck. This should have been caught and corrected at the factory.
Style of Music: Rock,Classical,Jazz,Blues,Prog Rock.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
