Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Fine guitar for the coin, or at any price."
Sound: Soundwise, the guitar is somewhere between my '14 Gibson 339 (bridge bucker only) and my '16 Les Paul High Performance - it's not brash or shrill, and doesn't quite do traditional jazz tones on demand, but fits pretty much anything else. I didn't have to do much EQ tweaking on my amps versus my other bucker-equipped guitars. Even when coil-tapped, electronics are quiet - no extraneous noise or problems. Sustain is very, very good, which I attribute to the through-body string arrangement and overall choice of wood and the resonance of the particular pieces of lumber this was put together with. Feature: Features, it's pretty basic, but most V-type guitars are. Locking tuners were a solid choice, they're Schecter-branded but do the job and have a solid feel and good tuning ratio. Compensated nut and overall fretwork are excellent. There was no need to break out the luthier tools to fix anything at all. Coil tap is something you won't likely use daily, but it's there as an option and doesn't detract from anything. Ease of Use: I sounded good pretty much right away with it; it wasn't out of place with my other guitars at all and I have both budget and relatively expensive ones. It played and felt different from any of the others, which is a good thing - because that takes me to different places when sitting down to write and perform, and it's definitely a good shade of paint to have in my available palette of sound. Quality: Quality is spot on for something in its price range. Nothing is out of place or screams "this is cheap" - fit and finish are decent, the purple top is quite stunning. The only negative mark I can give is that it didn't come with *any* printed manual or documentation, just truss and bridge adjustment allen wrenches. No promotional materials, no obligatory case sticker, etc. Value: An excellent value for what it is - it's worlds above the baseline V-type guitars that sell for a couple hundred dollars less. You can tell where that price difference went in the electronics, in the fit and finish, in the fretwork. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with the company at all other than the web-based warranty registration, and doubt I'll need to. The Wow Factor: I've wanted a V for a couple years now, I'd never owned one in twenty-some years of playing and it just seemed like a fun option to have. I also have been looking for a purple guitar that wasn't equipped with a Floyd Rose or a Strat for a while now...and...this checked off both boxes. I may not play *better* with it than my other stuff, but I sound good, and it looks damn nice. Overall: Consistent, solid build, looks nice, feels decent across the board. Honestly, the only point of contention I'd upgrade from the factory is the pickup switch - compared to the aircraft-grade switch in my '16 Les Paul High Performance, it just feels cheap. It's average quality, don't get me wrong, I'm just spoiled. That said, the little stuff is right - the top binding looks good, the pickguard doesn't look nor feel cheap in person, etc. Guitar is light but not featherweight - you know you've picked it up and when it's being played, but isn't a boat anchor by any means. Balance is surprisingly good given the locking tuners - there's no neck dive to speak of at all. Tuners are very, very functional - it holds tune well, and string changes were a breeze (I use stainless 10s on everything, so the stock ones had to go!) Pickups are not super-hot aggressive metal ones - they sound good both clean and with gain. Bridge and neck sound substantially different in character, which is quite nice, and the coil-tap sounds are also very usable especially clean. Action out of the box was perfectly playable; I'm a perfectionist and wanted it set up to my usual "not quite shredder, but lower than medium" and it took only a few minutes to tweak. Fretwork is consistently good across the board - nothing sharp or out of balance, intonates without issue. Compound radius fretboard and binding make for effortless playing, which is quite nice.
Style of Music: Experimental, improvisational electronic music (guitar, guitar synth, synthesizer) somewhere between Krautrock and free jazz

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Guitar-Get One"
Overall: I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this guitar. The neck is slender (more slender than my 2017 Gibson Explorer) and fast because of the satin finish on the back of the neck. The 12"-16" radius makes your chords solid and you bends effortless. The Pasadena pickups really sound great-not a high gain pickup but has a good medium gain PAF output and tone-think Slash and you are in the neighborhood-the cleans are very clear and articulate. Fit and finish is flawless and the trans purple is fricken' awesome. The frets are perfect-no sharp ends or high spots-action is sweet & low with no fret buzz. Only thing I would change is to add a tailpiece instead of string through body, but that's just my preference. Don't hesitate if you want a great sounding guitar that plays like butter and has a nice woody crunch to it-definitely is an eye catcher and a keeper.You can pick up a nice custom Schecter case for the V1 on their website-don't put it in a gig bag-deserves much better.
Style of Music: Hard rock, alternative rock, metal, blues.......just not country!
