Schecter Tempest Classic

Leaning towards the solo-6 due to the 24 frets cos i like to shred and i've tried out the tempest and really dug it, yet to try out the solo-6.

opinions?

The tempest guitars have a terrible neck joint for shredding, you can't really reach the upper frets well. The Solo-6 seems to have somewhat fixed this problem, (I haven't played one) but it still looks problematic. My favorite Schecter guitar for shredding is the C-1 hellraiser. The neck is a dream! its still fairly thick which I like, but the neck joint is awesome and gives you perfect reach to all of its 24 fretted glory.

If you're really made up on getting one of those 2 though, go for the solo-6, the tempest would be awesome for rhythm playing though.

Solo 6. definately, you can get to all the frets easily. I would get one myself, but i just don't really enjoy the shape too much. I'd rather double cut away too.

Then get the C-1 classic, has passive pickups and a TOM bridge.

I've only played the Tempest out of the two, and I was very impressed by it. It's not ideal for shredding, mind you, but neither is a Les Paul but still quite possible. It's up to you in the end of the day. If you really like the Tempest and thought it played great, that's all that matters.

so do both of those guitars. And btw, i'm not a shred maniac, i can handle a non shred made guitar.

I would get the Tempest but that's my opinion!

But maybe the Solo6 if you like shredding.

I need money for one with a fixed bridge though.. i'm 14 and will have to work for like a year. (I've done that before, worked every weekend, not fun)

I strongly dislike active pickups, but i can see myself going back to floyd's one day, so i'd get a jackson or something.

I like the Tempest. Its different, but still pleasing to the eye, plus it was fun to play when I was tooling around with my friend at the guitar store near me.

I have a Tempest custom, and it plays beautifully, although it's more ideal for rhythm then shredding in my opinion. Keep in mind shredding is still very possible, as is on pretty much any guitar. Being a huge fan of Schecter guitars, I have been dying to test out a solo 6. I'd say go for the Solo 6 since it has the 24 frets, and seems to have better access at the neck joint.
