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.

By ThrashMetalFan

from Bangor,ME

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

from St. Louis, MO

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!

006 is great to build on

By Scott Riedel

from Ankeny, IA

I bought a used OO6 on eBay. With a couple minor adjustments (adjusted the nut so it would stay in tune better, adjusted the neck and added Dimarzio Evolution pup in the bridge and Tone Zone in the neck) this guitar is so much better than I would have predicted for the money. The overall is very well built. Buy the guitar now, and then save up a little for new pickups and you'll sound like a Les Paul or PRS for so much less money.

Schecter - the little know secret

By schecter4life-N7Ma-

from san bernardino, ca

My very first guitar was a squier (like most of us) after a year i finally went to buy a guitar and ofcourse i followed the hype of the gibson guitar, when i picked it up was disappointed, the sales rep showed me a schecter 006 elite, i totally feel in love, i know own a 006 elite, s-1 elite, and c-1 +. the sound the best! the last, and can take a beating. through some emg's on the 006 and you'll have clarity that would make Fender jealous!

Best guitar I've ever owned

By SchecterGuyNow

from Waupaca, WI

See all my reviews

This guitar beats the Gibsons, Fenders, Yamahas, Epiphones, and others I've owned over the years. It's not loaded with fancy bindings, the cut and finish are beautiful but not flashy, and the hardware is a very plain but good-looking black. This must be where you save the money, because this thing can flat-out play, better than the higher-cost guitars I've had. It makes me sound way better, and I finally figured out the reason I couldn't make tapping sound good was the guitar, not the player! I've got the s/humb. config. Great sound, very good action, easy to play. I've run it through different distortions, chorus, phaser, amps, and tried to make it sound like an acoustic, and I can't make it sound bad. Despite the weather changes and not playing it for a couple weeks over the holidays, it was still almost perfectly in tune.

Good guitar, can't beat the price!

By SeetherGuy

from Ohio

I recently got back into guitar, going from a Fender American Strat that I got rid of several years ago to a newer, low budjet hobbyist guitar, the Schecter 006 elite. I can honestly say I could not find a guitar that can create this kind of quality sound, with this kind of quality features for a comparable price. The Duncan Designed pickups sound nearly as good, if not as good (noticeably) to original Duncan pups. BUY THIS GUITAR IF IT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO SPEND, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

I've never heard a guitar sound so good through a crappy amp. I had tried a couple other guitars through the same amp and they didn't come close to sounding as smooth as this guitar. Great Guitar!!!

I love it, the wood is beautiful, the sound is awesome, the paint job rules, the tuners work perfectly, and the tribal on the 12th fret is the cherry on the Sundae! IT OWNS! Get One NOW!

I have the previous model of the 006 elite and it is truly an amazing guitar it looks good and pinch harmonics , pull off's and tapping sound great especially tapping wich is quite easy to do on this guitar , The pickups are good but I would replace them with Seymour Duncan JB/59'S . Overall a great guitar for a great price

I was at a local music store, searching for a 2nd guitar, and I saw this one. Came back later, and played it through a big Line 6 amp. IT WAS AWESOME! The neck was totally easy to manuever. It was so light weight... and it sounded so thrashing, it was unbelievable! I am DEFINITELY going to purchase this!

Great looking, playing guitar for the price

Nice tuners! Never, and I mean never come un-tuned. Beautiful finish, great sounding pickups - wish it had a bit more tone control though.
