i have one, love it. The neck is a little thick for my tastes, wish that i got it later when they had the coil taps, but oh well. Still love to play it.

Their necks are too fat for my preference, and I have huge hands. But then again, I love my RG's neck (Wizard II)...

Everytime I walk in to GC, I have to play one. They are great guitars.

But the active EMG's might not sound good with your amp (assuming you have a solid state amp) and they really aren't too flexible. So if teh Metalz and Punk rock is what you play, by all means, grab one of these.

I'd say look at other C-1's. There's the C-1 Classic, which is very flexible and a very nice guitar. C-1 Artist 2 which is like the Classic minus coil tapping, C-1 FR which is the cheapest C-1 I can find new. The C-1 FR is basically your second guitar and the first one you'd buy with a Floyd, because it's relatively cheap.

Try to play all the C-1's you can find. They're all pretty different.

I find the C-1 Classic to be superior, but if you're in to EMGs and teh br0otalz, Hellraiser is for you.

Definitely worth the cash in my opinion, but then again so are most Schecters.
Ibanez RG120
Schecter C-1 Classic
Bugera 6262 w/ Mesa Boogie Rectifier 4x12
Morley Bad Horsie Wah
Boss DD-7

GODDAMMIT I need a G Decimator...

Yea, I played on my frien's black gloss C-a, and it plays great, Love the tone, coil tap and everything. And I'm actually comfortable with the neck too, I'm planning on getting an Avenger. Definetly a gud choice, but also be sure that your satisfied with your tone on an amp you think will satisfy the sound your looking for
#14
well i havent tried one out yet cuz im s far away from GC or any usic store fo that matter. But ya the EMGs is what i want most out of it, and it also just looks bad ass. and im playing metalcore and oter various metal subgenres

i play metal sub genres like deathcore and metalcore and nu-metal. i have a Squire Strat and an Ibanez RG4EX1 which has one skinny wizard neck. i dunno if its the II or the III. But it has a Floyd Rose or at least an imitation, and i dont really want another tremelo considering i dont dive bomb very muh and i jump tunings constantly. Amps i have are a Fender Frontman 15 (it came with the strat) a Line6 Spider III 15W and a VOX AD VT15. And i havent played with actives yet s i dont know how they will work through those amps

I've had my Shecter for nearly 2 years, and it was by far the best investment i had made. I don't really have a problem with the thickness of the neck, which is weird considering alot of people do have problems with it. It dishes out brutal rhythms, and if it's played well through a decent amp your lead work can make the ladies wet
