Amid popular demand, Schecter Guitars is proud to introduce the E-1 SLS Elite. This neck-thru build begins with resonant swamp ash wings mated to a 7-ply maple/walnut/padauk carbon fiber-reinforced ultra-thin C-shape neck, capped off with a 25.5” scale ebony fingerboard appointed with 24 X-Jumbo stainless steel frets. We then implant a set of Fishman Modern humbuckers with individual dual-voice switching options via push-pull pots, providing professional-grade high-fi tone with the versatility to hop naturally between sweet passages and scalding riffs. Ensuring sublime tuning stability and precision is a premium hardware suite consisting of Schecter locking tuners, an Ernie Ball compensated nut, and a TonePros T3BT/T1Z Tune-O-Matic bridge system. Adding the frosting to the proverbial cake are aesthetic touches including a beautiful flame-maple top and headcap, abalone side-dot inlays, offset abalone fingerboard inlays, ivory binding on the body and neck, and a contrasting finish scheme with natural pearl back and sides and your choice of either a Black Fade Burst or Antique Fade Burst top, both with matching headcap finish. SGR E-1 wooden case or Pro Ex Gig Bag sold separately.

"Many Firsts Achieved with This Guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've owned many guitars over the years and many of them were Schecters. This is the first brand new guitar I've purchased from zZounds and it does not disappoint. It arrived early and was only slightly out of tune as expected. What I did not expect was how quickly I would fall in love with this instrument and now it is my primary guitar for performing and recording. The guitar is surprisingly lightweight for its size. The Fishman pickups are punchy and cut through the mix beautifully and I thoroughly enjoy the push-pull feature for its versatility. I've always been an EMG guy but these have really made me question my pickup choice. Playing on the higher frets caused slight fret buzz but that was quickly fixed with some slight adjustments in the bridge. I was worried that a guitar with a satin finish would slow down my playing but the neck and action are slick and fast. I particularly enjoy the neck because you can really feel the grain of the wood at the back of the neck. If there were any imperfections this would cause problems but there aren't any and it doesn't. My one issue with this guitar and many like it is the strap button near the base of the neck. Typically these are located under or on top of the neck. This one is right behind the neck causing it to scrape against me while playing. If you have large strap buttons or strap locks this could be uncomfortable. I have not had any issues with the electronics or any other defects so I have not had to contact support from Schecter read more or zZounds, so because of that, they are getting 5 stars. It's also worth noting that the body and neck are perfectly balanced and it does not dip to either side while standing. This is one of the most comfortable guitars I have ever played, it sounds and plays great and I couldn't recommend this any higher.
