Overview

Deluxe tonewoods and Schecter USA pickups.

Exotic and aggressive, Schecter Guitar Research’s new Diamond Series C-1 Koa makes a visual and sonic impact large enough to leave a crater. A mahogany body in Schecter’s famous C-1 shape is paired with a 3-piece mahogany neck and an ebony fingerboard, then capped off with an eye-catching koa top, resulting in a combination of timbers that oozes sustain and purrs with resonance.

Powering this beast is a set of Schecter’s USA Custom Shop San Andreas pickups. Made to deliver high-output heat and gut-punching low-end, these well-balanced pickups will shake the very ground you stand upon as they cut through even the densest mix.

The C-1 Koa comes factory-equipped with an Ernie Ball Compensated Nut engineered to accommodate the different tension of each fretted string, and ensure an exceptionally in-tune instrument along the entire span of the fretboard. Case sold separately.
