For months i saved a little part of my paycheck in order to get the guitar of my dreams, a Schecter C-1 Classic. Finally, the moment of truth came and passed. I was extremely happy with it for a while.

But then, my musical tastes started to change, and i got more and more into the heavier rock and metal, and lo and behold i am just not getting the sound i want out of this guitar.

So should i upgrade the pups to a more high-output pair than the duncan jazz and HB, or sell it and get a more metal-er guitar? And will the fact that the pick up selecter is 5 way make things more complicated?
Honestly. Wtf?

Yeah I dont see how that guitar wouldnt do metal to be honest...but I think upgrading the pickups would do a lot in the way of improving the tone.

A Duncan jazz pickup is not designed for metal, so I think changing the pickups will give you the sound you are looking for.

the JB is a high output 'bucker. it should do metal fine as it is. maybe it's your amp that's got the problem with metal.

EDIT: that is actually a really good pup combo for metal because the JB is high-output and the Jazz has fantastic cleans (ie. Metallica and Opeth type stuff). I don't see what you have an issue with.

You need a new amplifier. That spider won't get the tones you're looking for.

at least 60 percent if not more, of your tone comes from a good amp.

try the Amps Q & A thread. They'll hook you up with some fantastic suggestions for any price range. and most of them they have tried side by side with competitors.
