for a few months ive had my heart set on owning one of these but i havent needed another guitar. ive decided i want to get rid of my ibanez xiphos. i dont use a tremolo enough to make it worth my while. i like to use my different guitars in different tunings and i dont want to have to adjust the springs every time i go down or up 1/2 step.

but thats not what this is about. i went to my only local music store and asked about trading this guitar and throwing in a little cash for a brand new schecter c-1 classic. the worker told me they were discontinuing those. he called his supplier and they had none left he said they were replacing them with something else, but he didnt have a lot of info. are they just done with the 09 model of the c-1 classic or is that model no more? i dont really want to go used and i was hoping to not spend much beyond the money that ill get from selling another guitar of mine. but i dont know of anywhere else where i could do a trade like that.

even if a guitar was to be removed from production it would take several months before the new stock disappeared completely......

The shop/their supplier (who is probably just a distributor) may just be moving away from schecter (and it could be their choice or schecters choice). If I was you I'd call round a couple of different shops and see if they can get you one.

musiciansfriend has these up as on sale and from what I've gathered (I was looking at them too) they seem to be disappearing everywhere. A few sites said discontinued.

EDIT: nevermind. I was thinking of the C-1 plus. Maybe your vendor was confused?

Yeah I found a few stores selling the C1 classic for around $700usd while others were completely out of stock mainly the big chain music stores had them out of stock. The other option is to buy via ebay or go used.

Just wanted to bump, and say that i e-mailed Schecter, and got a response saying they have officially discontinued it and it will no longer be offered. They did mention they are changing their lineup for the 2010 year aswell.

Man this is sad news but I also called Schecter today and found out. I can only say I'm glad I bought mine when zzounds dropped the price from $799 to $449. I got a HELL of a deal and it really is the very best guitar I've ever owned! Surely Schecter can either best it or come out with something very similar for the new model year. Incidentally even the guy at Schecter I talked to was very sad about the discontinuance. For everyone who owns one ---- HOLD ONTO IT!!!! They are and will be in high demand.

Wow, that was a steal. Really $449? Are you nervous around police?

Yeah I'm a bit nervous!!

But yeah seriously $449. I bought it immediately since they ran out of the see through blue the next day. The only one that was still $799 then was the sea green color.

SURELY schecter is aware how popular of a model this is, so they gotta have something very similar but better in mind for '10?

I dunno, the guy i spoke to at schecter was dissapointed they disco'd it, saying they had sold out of every singe one they made for the past 6 years. You'd think they'd keep making it, but i digress. He also said look for the '10 lineup, but couldnt tell me what was due.

Probably a marketing tactic. Want to end on a high note and phase in the next gen stuff while there is a lot of buzz.

They're releasing C-1 Classics in Deep Sea Green for Limited 2009 models... So those ones are becoming "discontinued"

Sadly, my GC stopped carrying C-1 Classics (epic fail.) about 6 months ago.

Though I have heard they are "discontinuing" the C-1 Classic, I believe they are discontinuing production for 2009, to release a new upgraded version of the C-1 Classic (Plus? lol) for 2010.

Watch, C-1 Classic Plus. Same as C-1 Classic, but has a choice between see-thru colors with a flamed maple top and solid colors, with different bindings.

yeah, AFTER i found a used trans blue model on ebay, i saw a random ad for americanmusicalsupply or something like that that was still selling brand new ones for $499

^^i dont like the replacement. flame instead of quilt, different inlays, and the volume knob is right by the bridge pup!! the knob was out of the way on the classic and thats what initially steered me toward it. at least ive got one on the way. thanks for the info.
