Schecter E-1 Koa in Natural Satin

New for 2018!
Written by

Elliot Stent

The E-1 is a modern-looking Schecter model based on the classic Explorer shape, boasting plenty of character and flair. And for 2018, Schecter has vastly expanded its range, including the new E-1 Koa in Natural Satin. With a classy-looking design and featuring premium high-end parts, this instrument can easily meet the demands of today's players. 


A Mahogany body gives this guitar a substantial feel and weight, providing a darker tone with plenty of definition in the mid-range. Adorned with a stunning Koa top, this guitar will draw in lots of attention not just for its excellent tones but also for its elegant looks.

A 'C' neck profile provides great comfort, thick enough for easily playing chords and heavy riffs but also slim enough to give you great playability for leads. A 3-piece Mahogany neck will stay super-solid over time, with its higher density less susceptible to warping from changes in humidity. Fitted with 22 extra-jumbo frets, your fingers will simply fly up and down the fretboard, also thanks to its smooth satin finish.

Hardware and Electronics:

A TonePros tune-o-matic-style bridge gives this instrument some old-school vintage charm, with its design making intonation and action adjustments a breeze. A double dose of Schecter's own USA San Andreas pickups make this guitar incredibly versatile, able to cover all the essential stylistic bases with their medium/high outputs. Saturated and punchy with distortion, the San Andreas pickups clean up well too, ideal for softly-picked arpeggios or chords.
