I got his guitar a few weeks ago, (after a 3 week backorder wait) But I pulled it out of the box and I noticed that the neck pup was a single coil, I was under the impression that it would have a been a double. But I figured I would try it out and see what happens anyways, I did and I loved it. The double bridge pup is awesome for real raw sounds, and the neck pup is great for a bit of an acoustic sound. I love the body and the BlackCherry paint job, I couldna been happier with that aspect. I love the speed knob that pulls out for more gain, what an ingenius idea. The set neck with the appearance of a neck thru is the best, it comforms to your hand perfectly for those mind blowing solos. I thought at first that it was a little expensive, but I now know how they can charge that for it, because it's worth it. My friend plays Les Pauls, only Les Pauls and he played it, not 3 minutes later he was willing to trade me for one of his Les Pauls, it's got the sound of a PRS with the beauty of the Schecter custom cut offs. Damn nice guitar I suggest everyone get it, if you are looking at one. Just do it.

OK, I'm on my SECOND Schecter 006 Elite, and I fear I'm going to have to return it for the third time. If I do, I'll definitely get something else. The volume knob is horrible, it's breaking left and right - just sounding terrible. I have only had it for about 3 weeks now! GET AN ESP!!! This looks great, but I'm sorry to say it really has too many problems.

Schecter 006 Elite

By manicsix

from Brisbane, Australia

First model 006 elite, 2001 made (I believe). This is a beautiful instrument, flame (tiger-stripe) maple top, black hardware, and stop-tail bridge are the differences between this and the newer model. All top quality hardware. It sounds amazing, has brilliant resonance and sustain through the mahogany body, moreso than other mahogany guitars I've played. Plugged in, it has a cutting edge sound for modern styles. The elite has a very fast neck and balanced body, it's a pleasure to play.

Beautiful finish. Careful to read the fine print. My 006 Elite came with a single coil in the neck and a humbucker in the bridge. The distortion is good if you want to play rock i.e Seether or Godsmack. If you want to play a heavier style i.e. Kreator or Morbid Angel you're going to need a pedal. Clean has very pristine sound. I was impressed. Overall for a beginner looking for an up-grade this is a fine instrument. I prefer the C-1 Plus.

This guitar is your best bet for the dollar

By omnitheory

from Fort Worth, Texas

Out of the box, the setup was perfect... the weight and balance is as good as the tone... The Duncan design pickups are good enough for this working musician. Imagine, all this, with stylish looks! I couldn't be happier with my new 006 Elite!

Everything that's in a PRS for a fraction of the price. Excellent craftmanship, perfect balance, and fabulous tones.

One of the best guitars for the price

By deftones1382

After playing a few different types of Schecters, my favorite by far is the 006 Elite. For the price, it is a really great guitar and fun to play.

The 006 has skills

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I played this guitar at guitar center a little bit ago and it is great, the pickups sounds great on distorsion. This guitar can dish out great distorsion for most any style of music and it handles clean well also, The neck to my suprise is quite fast, great for tapping solos and overall this guitar is great. If you have the money and are considering I say buy it.

Niceness

By cmansyco

from Huntingtown, MD

This Schecter pretty much won me over within 5 minutes of playing it. I like how it has the pull-out tone knob to change to a more twang sound, and it's sleek look makes it enjoyable to play!

Fun

By Str8shot2004

from Poca, WV

This is a great guitar for a great price. I have 10 guitars and this is in the top 3. I put an EMG 81 and 85 in it and now it screams. The finish is easy to scratch but it is a beautiful guitar that is smooth and fast to play.

Buy this Guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got this guitar off of ebay and this thing is bad! I love it. I own a Les Paul studio and this thing comes very close to it. I have an older model and it has a single coil in the neck instead of the double humbucker. I replaced my pick ups is EMG's and it sounds so good. The guitar is light. The finish if beautiful and it is only cheaper than other guitars becuase is made in Japan. This guitar stays in tune. It plays good all the way up and down the neck. Buy this!
