About the Schecter C-1

The Schecter C-1 is one of the company's signature body shapes. Similar to an S-type from the front, the C-1 has a chunky body, generally made from Mahogany. The top has a carved arch and is often a cap made from figured Maple, though not always.

The C-1 can be seen throughout a great many Schecter ranges from the Custom and Platinum ranges through to the famous Hellraiser range. The C-1 is a tasteful mixture of tradition and modernity that serves as a useful 'blank canvas' to Schecter's design team to build around. The C-1 has also served as a blueprint for other Schecter ranges like key guitars from the Omen, Demon and Damien ranges.

Such is the ubiquity of Schecter's C-1 guitar, you will almost certianly find a great selection of them at each of our UK based guitarguitar stores. Find your favourite and try it out in one of our soundproof booths or simply click through our website to buy and have it delivered straight to you!
