Product Description

The lefty model of Gary Holt's Schecter V1 offers all the playability and hard-edge tone keep you rocking all night. The Gary Holt V1 is the epitome of metal guitar mastery with its mahogany body, Grover Rotomatic tuners, red EMG 81 and 89 humbuckers and Floyd Rose Original Tremolo. You don't have to be a fan of Exodus to love the look, feel, and tone of this guitar.

Features

- 3-piece mahogany set neck with Ultra Access
- Rosewood fingerboard with 22X Jumbo frets
- Grover Rotomatic tuners with 18:1 gear ratio
- EMG Active Custom Red 81/89 pickups
- Original Floyd Rose tremolo

Grover Rotomatics with 18:1 Gear Ratio

The original Rotomatic with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.

Rosewood Fingerboard

The most common fretboard, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

EMG Active Custom Red 81/89 Pickups

Requested by Gary Holt in Red Custom made by EMG. The 81/89 set utilizes the powerful 81 in bridge position and the 89 in the Neck position. 81- Powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. This pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. 89- Loaded with Alnico V magnets and has separate preamps each providing custom outputs for both dual coil and single coil modes.

Three-piece Mahogany Neck

Made with three pieces of mahogany for extra stability. Three piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the three piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Original Floyd Rose Tremolo

The Floyd Rose Tremolo System is used by more professionals throughout the world than any other. No copy can duplicate the patented double-locking design of the Floyd Rose Tremolo System that allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge. The Floyd Rose Tremolo System is engineered like no other tremolo system.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very good product!!!! you get what you pay for and more. This is just not a guitar that looks cool. It sounds great! Plays great"
Sound: Sounds very good. The funny thing is that you can get a very good clean sound out of this as well. I do not play clean much but if you did this would do the trick. I also swapped out the Red EMG pick ups for the black. Over all the guitar performs and sounds like it should and is perfect for any kind of music. Feature: Very simple lay out. One volume with push pull pot for the neck pick up. This sounds very,very, good when split if you use your neck pick up on solo's and on the clean channel. Floyd rose stays in tune even when you abuse it. I did not like the red pickups. They should have been a little darker red. The frets need even out and polished a little better. More care should be given from the factory. Ease of Use: The guitar plays great other than some small flaws from the factory. The balance of the guitar is a lot better than schecters other v guitars. The neck is a smidge on the thick side. The goat inlay is very cool. very simple and easy to use. Crank it and go. Quality: Giving this an 8. Every shecter I have has come with a flaw or two that is noticeable with out looking to hard. Some guitar co. would not pass this and sell them as factory seconds. If you are buying a brand new guitar that's what you should be getting. The flaws were not bad enough to send back. Schecter needs to pay more attention to this. i would like to see these guys keep going because they make a lot of lefty's that are cool. After all this, I still love the guitar and sound of it. Value: For over a grand this guitar lives up to the price. The case should come with the guitar for free for this price. Other company's sell guitars in the same price range and include the case. Manufacturer Support: Have not had to deal with them but the distributors that sell them are great so far. The Wow Factor: When I first seen this guitar I knew I had to have it. I sold a bunch of stuff I had sitting around to get it and I don't regret one bit. It is one of those guitars that just don't come along to often for us lefties in this price range. Thankfully enough the guitar's quality and sound lived up to a semi pro's level of quality. This guitar just has the MOJO right out of the box. This is a man's guitar that just has metal written all over it. Overall: I got one of the first three ever made. The first three were made with the goat head upside down on the lefties. Hey I could have waited for one the was facing the correct way but I got a free case and shipping out of the deal. I plan on purchasing another one of these and keeping the red Emg pickups in it and using it for my other band. This is my main guitar. This guitar is like an old pair of slippers,when you put it on it just feels like home.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Goat Head Guitar."
Sound: Sounds great. You can get a lot of different tones. Feature: Very simple. Less is better for me. Crank it to ten and go.I swapped out the red pick ups for black. The pick ups were just not red enough for me. The only reason I did this was because I had an extra set of black EMG pick ups and swapped them out to see how they looked. Ease of Use: I really like the EMG 89 in the neck position. The coil tap in the volume pot is great. This is just not a metal guitar. It can pull off just about any music. Quality: I'm giving this a nine because I believe the frets could be a little smoother and every Schecter I have gotten I can find a small flaw or two of some sort. This does not effect the tone and with in a week or two it is going to have a defect in it any way. Do to travel and ware and tare. Stays in tune no matter how hard you hammer on it. Value: The quality matches the price. Very good solid guitar for the money.Schecter needs to sell guitars with the case. In todays economy you would think guitar companys would add this into the cost some how. Manufacturer Support: Never dealt with. The Wow Factor: The goat inlay is very cool. This may not be every ones cup of tea. The red binding and goat head inlay is very cool. Every one I show this guitar to thinks it is very stunning. Overall: I plan on purchasing another one of these some time soon. I rarely ever buy the same guitar twice. I will need another for a back up or drop tunings. I own several guitars. I have owned this guitar for about a year and want to play it all the time. A lot of my other guitars have been put away since owning this guitar.
