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.

Smokin'!

By Slide-eiHl9

I've owned my sunburst C-1 Plus for a few years now, and I'm still amazed by the value, playability and tone. (And looks!) When I bought mine, the pickups included were ceramic - great for the heavy stuff, but not ideal for mellower tones. Today the instrument comes with the Korean made equivalent of the Seymour Duncan Jazz in the neck and JB in the bridge, and with coil-tapping. Perfect balance! (I ended up doing the same thing with mine.) Play the blues, rock, jazz - it all sounds great. And for a fraction of what a similar sounding mahogany guitar like a 'Paul, or PRS would cost. The frets could have been a little smoother, and the volume pots are starting to make some noise now, but these are cheap, easy fixes. This is just a great guitar from an under-appreciated manufacturer.

C-1 Plus Honeyburst

By Big Daddy C

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

A fine instrument...

By Coolestcd

from Buenos Aires, Argentina

I use this guitar mainly without distortion. For the style I play (rock, rock-country) I prefer to use the neck Duncan Design pickup with the tone pushed down, it can really sound very "country". The best strings for the C1+ are 0.10, actually is like the guitar has been build for these strings.The amp I play with (off and on stage) is a Fender Deluxe 112 and it's a perfect combination.I'm very happy with the purchase.

Schecter C1 Plus is an excellent guitar!

By toolpsych

from Georgia

See all my reviews

I have an '04 model in Black Cherry. The guitar is beautiful! I use this guitar with a Vox Valvetronix amp and it sounds amazing. The only modification I did was replacing the pickups. The stock pickups are not bad, but I threw in a pair of custom dimarzios in and now it roars with tone. The coil tap feature is great for versatility. I use this guitar to record my bands new album. If you want to hear the way it sounds, our cd is available at cdbaby and my band is called "LOCAL SLUR". Get this guitar and get our album too:)

Great guitar. Picture doesn't do it justice.

By hakejarley

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 Steve-..93x

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.

A must have guitar, for the price!!

By Dee Dubb

from Liverpool, NY

This guitar delivers a great warm sound, through clean and distorted channels. The neck has a tight feel to it for fast, accurate scales. Plus, it's looks speak for itself!

Nice Instrument

By Freo

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

This guitar has a very comfortable neck (for my touch) and that's one of the most important things for me. It's light weight and well balanced. The Duncan Designed pickups are okay. They sound just fine. The grover machine heads are very nice. I haven't experienced any tuning problems and I do my share of bending and stretching of the strings. I was prepared to buy the Schecter C-1 Classic, but this model simply felt and played better for me. It's a nice guitar and I am VERY pleased with it.
