They're about the same price and a pretty similar sound I think but which is better for me? I play some metal, alternative, rock, classic rock, stuff like that.
I have a C-1+ and I love it. The stock pickups aren't so awesome, but it's really a fantastic guitar, great for any style.
i have a tempest custom. plays better than a lot of gibsons i have played. best guitar schecter makes In my oppinion.
