Clean or distorted, it's good!

By BruiserGuitar

from Washington, DC

I've had this guitar (Crimson Red version)only one week and I've been impressed with it. The neck feels very much like my '68 Les Paul. The strings seems to be holding its tune very well despite being new. The strings are close together (which I prefer) and can be set very low on the neck before buzzing, though not as close as my Les Paul. The controls are smooth, not too loose and the switching taps on the tone controls require very deliberate effort to move. (It won't move when you accidentally bump the knobs.) The finish is flawless. The build quality is very good. The guitar is light and balanced. The tuners are spaced adequately but the peghead is not too big. The sound can be very clean and bright, although setting the tone knobs down about 1/4 tames the brightness to my liking. I use a Peavey Valve King head with a combination 2-10 and 1-15 custom cabinets with Eminence speakers. Even with alot of distortion, the guitar sounds like my Les Paul with chorus effect. I didn't like the sound with just a little bit of distortion so I play it either clean or with heavy distortion. If I want a bluesy, slightly distorted sound, I have to switch to my Les Paul or my Washburn semi-hollow ES-335 style guitar. The hardware is chrome and it would have looked great in gold against the Crimson finish. I ordered a Schecter Diamond series bass molded case as this is what customer service said would fit; however, it came damaged so I returned it and didn't get a chance to find out if the guitar fits in it.

Awesome Guitar!

By beatles9091

from Sedalia, MO

Just received my CSH12 after a seemingly endless wait on the backorder list but the delay simply increased my delight as I cranked it up. What a gorgeous instrument! The pics here don't do it justice. Also, a very (but not heavy) solid guitar..and the sound. This is my first electric 12-string and cannot believe how crisp and clear it is. I heartily recommend this guitar to anyone considering an electric 12-string. Great value for the price. I now understand why these were on backorder for awhile.

No Question - this is the 12-string to have!

By JohnnyBones

from Indianapolis (Colts!), IN

SCHECTER CSH12 SEMI-HOLLOW 12-STRING ELECTRIC GUITAR. One of the sweetest-sounding guitar 'effects' I've ever heard is the 12-string guitar. Hit the stereo chorus, and - HOLY TOLEDO - you've got a whole choir of guitars!! And this Schecter is at least equal in quality to the best guitars I've ever owned - including Fender, Gibson, Washburn, Guild, Steinberger, Peavey, Kramer, Aria Pro, Carvin, and probably some others I don't even remember! The workmanship is stellar; the features excellent; the sound, feel and setup are exemplary. The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the case was how light it is compared to other semi-hollow and solid-body guitars. Schecter has crafted the body with thick mahogany sides and solid blocking under the neck, neck-pickup and fully-adjustable bridge, allowing the entire center section to be left hollow. This gives the CSH12 a beautiful, almost-acoustic-like resonance and light weight while retaining solid-body strength and sustain. Wow - what a great design! The pickups are very powerful and cover the sound spectrum from deep bass to sparkling highs. The only other feature I'd like to see is a push-pull coil tap tone control for the neck-position pickup in addition to the one it has for the bridge pickup. Nonetheless, the tone variations possible with this axe are wide as the sky! And not to mention (but I will anyway) - this axe looks super! And it fits into the Musician's Friend Deluxe gig bag like a Hollywood starlet in a Vera Wang gown! When you think 12-string, don't think McGuinn or Page - think YOU! And this Schecter is IT!

Great Guitar

By The King Of Strings

from Texas

See all my reviews

I recieved this guitar from my aunt and I'll tell you what its awsome. with the Seymour Duncan Humbuckers it has incredible tone. and stringing it is so easy. it is kinda heavy for a semi-hollow but it is worth it. if you want you can take off 6 of the strings and play it like a 6 string it sounds even more awsome because the 6 string version doesent have the same awsome tone or features. the action is great and the neck is slim so playing it is easy. i would recomend this to anybody who wants to play 12-string and that has the money

Made an awesome christmas

By Keys of Ebony-vjJbh

from Warren County, New Jersey

This is the coolest guitar to mess around with and to take seriously. I'm 16 and got this for christmas and would highly recomend it to anyone looking for a 12 string. This guitar, which is my 6th (very 'enthusiastic') has great tone and clarity. Unplugged it is loud enough for room practice because of the amount of strings, but also the semi-hollow body resonates very well. Only downside to a light body is the headstock falls (plus a lot of strings).Other than that I love it. Easy, easy neck to play on, it's heaven. Semi-hollow, duncan design pickups, 12 strings, thru-neck, and the coolest looking guitar on the market (chicks like it)BUY IT... if you dont have the money try this out at least

Sounds better than 12 String models 3X it's price

By Bagouser

from metairie, LA

See all my reviews

This beauty is a brand new model from the 2007 NAMM show. Posh flame maple top with stunning platinum hardware. You get a fully hollow mahogany body with f-holes, the slim mahogany neck that Schecter players have grown to love, a matching headstock, 2 covered, Duncan Designed HB-102 humbuckers, and a sweet bridge that allows 6 of the strings to be strung through the body and the other 6 through the bridge for the sustain that is neccesary for a 12-String. THIS ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO STRING IT AS A 6-STRING WITHOUT HASSLE. The Pickups both have push/pull coil tapping and a 3 way selector for 12 different tonal combinations. All this for $599? I didnt even think twice. Sounds better than my friends Rickenbacker 12 and I promised him I wouldnt print how much he paid for it. This guitar is a great value and is tonally versatile. Looking at the Dean Boca 12? Trust me, fork over the extra dough for this one. Schecter is really rocking these days.


Great Guitar- Once you get it..

By gothtart

from Los Angeles

I agree, the backorder wait was jusr ridiculous. That being said this is a very good guitar. Once I put D'Adario strings on it it sounded awesome and plays very well. This is my first 12 string and I am having a ball with this. Awesome sound and very good playability at a price you can't beat with a stick,
