Overview

All the modern elements of a state-of-the-art performance guitar in one package - with great looks too.

The folks at Schecter Guitars put their minds to creating a fully-loaded instrument ideal for contemporary cutting-edge guitarists, and the C-1 FR-S SLS Elite is the game-changing result.

A 7-ply Maple/Walnut/Padauk neck-thru construction, reinforced with carbon fiber rods for stability and utilizing a spoke-wheel truss rod to facilitate easy adjustment, is mated to a swamp ash body with Ivory binding and topped with flame maple for boutique looks and tone. Comfort carves in the waist and cutaway as well as an ultra-access carve at the neck joint enable you to explore all 24 X-Jumbo stainless steel frets across the 25.5” scale ebony fingerboard with absolute freedom while the Fishman Fluence Modern Ceramic humbucker with switchable voice control delivers crushing power into your rig with unprecedented tonal expressiveness, not to mention the Sustainiac system which offers infinite sustain and controlled feedback at your fingertips.

Topping it all off, Grover 102-Series Tuners and a Floyd Rose 1500 double-locking vibrato system equipped with noiseless springs ensure stability and predictability even in the heat of the gnarliest dive-bombs, and the striking finish choices of Antique Fade Burst or Black Fade Burst will be sure to distinguish you from the pack.
