The Schecter C-1 Platinum is a new take on the Schecter formula offering up their classic design and feel but with some brand new hardware that helps this guitar blend high output with natural organic tones. This guitar is a serious metal machine that can calm down on command and be used for a wider range of styles.
If you know Schecter guitars the C-1 should feel like home, this is the shape that most people relate to when you hear the name Schecter and rightfully so it is a great design. From the heavily carved mahogany body which feels great in the hands to the maple set neck with ultra access cutaway that gives you access to all 24 frets with ease. Top off the neck with a piece of ebony for the fretboard that is cut to a 14" radius and this guitar feels great for pretty much any style.
New EMG Pickups
Fitted with the latest EMG pickups this guitar is still aggressive and ready to stomp through any high gain amplifier but this time it has a bit of a different tone. Gone are the synthetic sounds that you usually get from active pickups and in comes a more organic and natural tone that better fits more modern styles. The EMG 57 and EMG 66 pickups have been redesigned to offer the same output levels as their older legendary pickups but with a new tone more akin to passive pickups. This makes this guitar perfect for those that like to use a lot of gain but still want a detailed and articulate sound that keeps all the nuances of your playing.
