Schecter C1 Plus Electric Guitar

Schecter Guitar Research started building after-market and replacement parts for existing axes in the 70's, and has since come a long way in producing their own high quality instruments for a new generation of rockers. They proudly wear their pedigree on their sleeve, crafting feature-rich, affordable instruments with the sort of attention to detail and design aesthetic generally relegated to instruments twice its price. With their guitars in the hands of artists as diverse as The Cure, Avenged Sevenfold, The Who, Nevermore, Nine Inch Nails, The Misfits, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, and many more, Schecter builds an axe suited for any player. One of their most popular, the C1 Plus, may just be suited to every player.

A Tone-Heavy Rock Machine That Won't Break the Bank
Browsing up and down the list of high-end features and appointments on the C1, you'll completely understand why this beast has Plus tagged onto its name--the laundry list of accouterments found only on this Schecter completely belie its price tag. Just a few of the high-end perks you'll get when you join the Schecter fold: a Flame Maple top, custom Vector fingerboard inlays, Grover tuning pegs, set neck construction, cream body, neck, and headstock binding, and pickups custom designed by the venerable Seymour Duncan. Those pickups are nothing to shake a stick at--capable of dialing in the most gruesome metal, crunchy rock, or shimmery pop, the Schecter C1 Plus is a guitar capable of transforming its identity as quickly as you can turn the volume knob (this guitar has volume knobs for each pickup, allowing you to mix, match, and blend to your heart's delight, and one master tone, with a 3-way selection switch) or step on your favorite stompbox. Those Duncan Designed pickups, when combined with the Chrome Tune-o-Matic bridge and string-through-body tailpiece, create fat, rich, biting tones that will sustain for days. The stable truss rod is accessible beneath the headstock-mounted truss cover, meaning adjusting your setup is as easy as removing a few screws and making a few turns of the hex wrench.

If Looks Could Kill, This Guitar Certainly Will
We've already mentioned a few of the coolest features, but it's really important to focus on just how high the value of this guitar is when compared to how little it actually costs to purchase. We haven't quite gotten to the bottom of how Schecter was able to pull off a guitar with so many world class features (with such a reasonable price), but heck we aren't complaining! That gorgeous Flame Maple cap on top of the Mahogany body not only showcases the beautiful array of finish options available (Black Cherry, Vintage Honeyburst, and Dark Brown Sunburst, to be precise) but it also puts this Schecter in the same league as even the highest-end Les Pauls, tonally. The fingerboard, made of bound Rosewood, caps off a matched maple neck for bright, precise, cutting tone (not to mention wicked good looks!) Plus, with 24 jumbo frets on its 24 inch scale neck, this C1 plays just as nice as it looks.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Alright... I'm still surprised :)"
Sound: Convinced!! that the stock pups are very good. I've read that some say the stock pups are muddy, or not that good.. The truth is, the stock pups are very brilliant in tone, can play clean, and have a nice breakup for distortion. If anyone says the neck pup is muddy, they are playing thru a cheap amp. I play my C1+ thru a JSX 2x12 and I assure you, the notes are low, but not muddy. From standard E, to drop C, the axe sounds sweet. I am used to playing thru hotter pups like Evolution, Tone Zone, Hot Rails, etc.. but this sound is different and when EQ'd right, can give nice lead and rhythm sounds. Feature: From the tuners, fretboard, neck, body, pots, and all, everything sems solid and it dies the job. Stays in tune and the coil tap is cool for clean acoustic style sounds. Only came with some simple tools.... a sticker would have been nice. Ease of Use: Wow... plug and play! I am a perfectionist when it comes to string action and figured when I got this that I would have to change the strings and set up the bridge/truss rod.... NOPE. Did not make one adjustment. The action is low, intonation, is on, and didn't even have to adjust to drop tuning to 'Drop C#'. Quality: For the price... a no brainer. Haven't had it long, but everything seems quality for the price. Value: I got this during a pre Christmas sale and can laugh at what a deal I got. I'd take this over a $800-$1200 PRS or Fender all day. One day people will smarten up and realize all because something is built in Korea doesn't mean its crap. The Wow Factor: Loved the look of this axe. It's my first ever string thru (out of 13 others with tremelo) and the fretboard inlays are nice. Overall: For this price, I don't see selling this or getting rid of it anytime soon. I will gig with it along with my other guitars and if were lost/stolen, i could only hope to get the same deal again.
Style of Music: Christian Hard Rock, Progressive Metal

"Plays as well as it looks."
Sound: I've owned this guitar for almost 4 days now. It has one of the best vintage sounds i've ever heard from a new guitar. It gives a little too much bass for the more modern rock sound, maybe it's just my amp. Overall I love the sound of this guitar, I am very impressed. Feature: I got the guitar from a local music store who gave me nicer strings, a soft cover case, and a lot of good deals on accessories. Both of the "Duncan Designed" humbuckers sound very different. You can get a very bassy modern sound, or a very nice vintage sound. It has a very smooth neck that is fast and has 24 frets. Ease of Use: This was my first electric guitar and I figured it out in less than an hour. It has a very manouverable neck that's fast and comfortable. Quality: The owner at the music store i bought this from said that this guitar has as nice as a finish as any more expensive guitar. I find that true. Everything is sturdy, there's no string buzz, this guitar will last me a long time. I love the silver hardware such as the Grover Tuners. Value: I got this guitar for $569 plus tax. With the way this guitar plays and being that the list price is $819, I would say I got a great deal on it. Manufacturer Support: I gave this i 5 because i don't know if Schecter has good customer service or not. I don't think i'll have to find out. I am thinking about putting new pick-ups on it, not sure what kind, probably something by Seymour duncan. The music store seems to have great customer service. The Wow Factor: This is a beautiful looking guitar. I got it in blue. The silver goes great on it. The neck is extremely appealing. I love the dark maple. Overall: This guitar is best for rock esspecially 70's rock). It also has an amzing clean jazz sound. If you're a blues player, you're better of with a hollow body. For naything else, this guitar is for you.
Style of Music: Rock, hard rock, nu-metal, 70's rock, etc.
