    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.

    the lucky one

    By greenz

    from arizona

    I bought this guitar used on craigs list and after I installed some emg's, it sang beautifully, the stock duncans distortion had a muddy thrashy feel; I'm more metal. The neck is nice and smooth as well, to the point where your flying all over it.

    Schecter 006 Elite

    By Matt-CMnxO

    from Melbourne

    This guitar is awesome. I've come from a strictly Ibanez background, and this one has changed my perspective. I've had the bridge pickup changed out for an EMG 81 and its even better. Tone is super heavy for metal heads, but it is versatile enough in higher tunings.I'd definitely buy this guitar again if it got stolen!

    jaw dropping

    By NICE47

    This guitar is absolutely amazing, it can do it all. When I took it out of the box the quilt top (some models have a flamed top) was pretty good and the pearl inlay on the 12th fret was beautiful. I love the versatility with this guitar because of the coil tap. I'm runnin it through a couple boss pedals and my B-52 half stack and it sounds amazing, if your thinking about buying it, stop and just do it

    By manicsix

    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.
