Beautiful looking guitar, very well constructed. The sustain is impressive, the frets are silky smooth. Very easy guitar to play. The issues I have involve the pickups and wiring. I'm not picky, but the bridge was way over the top tinny. I fixed that by rotating the pickup and now its very useable. The only switch position this pickup is engaged is the 3rd. Is this a wiring fault? I like the guitar enough to rewire if thats whats necessary to allow me to blend with the neck. Otherwise, the middle position is useless. And the neck is too clean for a decent blues distortion w/o messing more with the amp.One other issue, the pickups are so big, and the guitar relativly small, I'm constantly scrapping the pickups. You have only a small 2-3" area between them to avoid this problem. Not an easy adjustment for me to make. I will try lowering them, but the pickups aren't exactly the hottest and I don't want to sacrifice the volume too muchEven with these issues, I like the feel of this guitar so much, I want to make it work.

A good guitar, it came set up with a very good action, haven't messed with it too much. The neck is nice and slim, doesn't feel like a baseball bat. The only problem is that after a couple of months, two circle like cracks appeared in the clear part of the top around where the bridge drills in, but it doesn't affect the sound or construction at all. I just put it down to it being foreign made. Other than that, it is very good. The Duncan humbuckers produce a very hot and distorted sound, to bell like cleans.

By

Unique amazing guitar!

By 

from Undisclosed

24 frets, yet a shorter les paul style scale length. This means the frets are certainly smaller so it is not ideal for complicated metal leads. Other than that this guitar is amazing, VERY thin neck that you will love, great looks (if you can get vintage sunburst). Replace the pickups with real duncans and you have what will play and sound like a 2,000 guitar. I have many guitars, this is still my #1 and probably always will be.

Great guitar. Picture doesn't do it justice.

By 

from Plymouth, IN

I love this guitar. I got it cheaper than I probably should have been able to and let me tell you, it was a great deal! The pickups were a bit weak at first but I raised them and that took care of the problem. The clean sounds are pretty good and the distortion is great! This guitar is versatile and beautiful. It is everything you need in a guitar. I have the vintage honey burst, which looks ugly in the picture. In real life the thing is flipping gorgeous. My schecter is my new baby and while it doesn't play quite as well as the Ibanez RGA121, it looks a lot better and has more features. All my friends want to play it!

Awesome guitar for the money!

By 

from LA, CA

The Schecter C1+ is a steal. Very nicely crafted and put together mahogony neck & body, set neck, maple top, and rosewood fretboard makes this guitar feel more expensive than it really is. The coil split gives you a little more tonal options, although the pickups somewhat limits. The bridge pickup is ok but the neck pup lacks midrange, the low end is muddy, but the highs are pretty good.All in all, a great price for a great axe. But I would suggest upgrading the pups, or atleast the neck pup.

Great guitar

By 

from CA

The Schecter C1+ is a great guitar for its price. Construction and finish, top notch and is something you'd see on higher price guitars. Out of the box, it played great, frets were dressed and leveled nicely. A slight .010 neck releif with a 4/64 action, no buzz. The frets were not crowned after leveling from the factory so there were some flat spots (not dead though, just a little gritty on bends) on the upper frets in mine. Couple light runs w/ a crowning file and polish did the trick.The sound. Eeeh, its great for its price, but it is the weakest link on this guitar. The DD HB-102 have pretty good clean sound, nice crunch in distortion, good sustain but thats about it. The tone does lack a little character on clean, the neck can be muddy on some songs. The bridge pup is ok, but can be a bit tinny or chimey. But do remember, for this price, it sounds awesome and it is a great platform to upgrade on. But before a pup upgrade, its good for metal, some rock.I have recently put DD SH1n 59 and TB14 and right away, huge improvement and the sound I was looking for.

This Guitar is Awesome!

By 

from Virginia

I just got this in the mail yesterday. It is in my opinion worth much more than they are selling it for. I got the black cherry and it is about the best looking guitar i have seen as well. It was setup perfectly out of the box and i didnt have to make any adjustments at all. The coil tap is also a very nice feature. The only problem i have with it is how badly it shows fingerprints.

Played it twice, making payments on it now.

By 

from Danville, VA

I saw this guitar in a local shop when I was shopping around for an electric upgrade. I pulled it off the wall and plugged it in, and fell head over heels in love. It has a great, versatile tone, bright highs and warm lows. The coil tap has got to be one of the best inventions of our age, allowing me to pull out of a heavy riff into a crisp bluesy solo. It plays like a dream. I've only ever played one other guitar that felt so smooth in my hands and that one was a heavily modified SG. This guitar will be my pride and joy once I own it.

C-1 Plus Honeyburst

By 

from Minneapolis

I've owned a few C-1's through the years, going all the way back to 2002, and they just keep getting better.a couple weeks ago, my Girlfriend gave me a new C-1 plus, with the "vintage honeyburst" finish, which is a gorgeous deep orange, which really sets off the flamed maple top.Construction is solid, and flawless. the set neck and string thru design of the mahogany body creates sustain for days. As far as playing goes, let me just say the pickups are HOT!!! turn the volume knobs all the way up and this guitar screams. back them down about halfway and it can sing with the sweetest voice i've heard...I'm currently playing through a line 6 Spider III head, a Fender Roc Pro Head, and carvin cabinets loaded with celestions.current guitars i own for comparison: - Yamaha EG115 (beater) - Gibson Les Paul Custom shop - BC Rich Mockinbird (bronze) - Dean HSH strat (unknown model) - Schecter XXX (limited edition) If you're looking for a guitar, that's got all the features, a killer tone, without being overly flashy, this is the guitar for you
