OVERVIEW

Packed with Schecter style and performance.

The Schecter V-1 Platinum Electric Guitar packs a lot of features for the price. The V-shaped mahogany body looks amazing in its sleek satin finish. The set maple neck is joined at the heal with Schecter's ultra-access neck joint to help you reach high notes with maximum facility. This platinum edition gets ebony for the fingerboard to add durability and sustain with 24 extra-jumbo frets at your disposal.

The Schecter V-1 sports active electronics that play a key role in its sound. An EMG 66 humbucker in the neck position and EMG 77 at the bridge produce all the crunch and power you can use, shaped by dual volume controls and a master tone. A tune-o-matic bridge allows for precise adjustment of intonation and string height, while the string-thru-body tailpiece design further adds to the V-1's sustain and tone. Case sold spearately.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research V-1 Platinum Electric Guitar:

I was looking for a 24-fret Flying V with unfettered access to the highest frets and this one fit the bill. I like it because it has just about all the hardware goodies that I end up having to install later like locking tuners and bridge. It is well crafted and what I call a "nice piece of wood." Plays like butter and sustains for days.

I would give it 5 stars if not for the active EMG 57/66 pickups. Apparently they are supposed to give you a modern PAF sound. These are brittle sounding and although they have some picking dynamics, they have no volume dynamics. You get different tones from soft or hard picking with them, but the volume stays at a high level. This will be a killer axe once I replace the electronics with a good passive system.
