Schecter C-1 FR S SLS Elite Black Fade Burst

Manufacturer's ID: SCH1359

What we say:

This fearsomely spec’d C-1 is a new 2018 model by Schecter. Featuring pretty much everything a creative guitarist would want in one instrument, this guitar piles on the quality and value.

So, let us begin with the woods and construction. We have a solid body of Swamp Ash (great for resonance and overtones) and an arched top of Flame Maple. The neck is a ‘through’ design and is made of Maple, Walnut and Paduak with Carbon Fibre rods for reinforcement.

The fingerboard is Ebony and feels pretty lovely! It has a 12-16” compound radius to make chording and shredding equally comfortable. Two octaves’ worth of Extra Jumbo stainless steel frets attest to the quality on display here. Small offset Abalone dots serve as tasteful and subtle fret markers.

In terms of hardware, this guitar is absolutely cutting edge. Schecter have selected a Fishman Fluence Modern active humbucker for the bridge power! This ceramic beast is capable of planet-smashingly heavy tones and more & more top-tier heavy players are using them.

The neck unit is a sustainiac, a humbucker shaped device that allows infinite sustain with or without harmonic overtones. A pair of mini switches controls these parameters. If you’ve never tried a Sustainiac, it’s something of a revelation: it really opens up your playing, giving you a new palette of sounds, particularly if you also have a quality locking tremolo like the heavy duty Floyd Rose 1500 unit on here!

We are seriously impressed with this guitar: we haven’t even gone into the beauty of the Black Fade Burst over that flame top! This isn’t a cheap instrument but we think its actually spectacular value for money when you start adding up the cost of all of the hardware, never mind the top-rate build quality. There is very little the modern guitarist could need that is not on board this beautiful axe.
