A wild package appears


Time to open it


No that won't do either


Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Schecter C-1 Custom


Bare Knuckle Alnico Nailbomb + Cold Sweat


Schecter C-1 Custom with Bare Knuckle Alnico Nailbomb bridge + Cold Sweat Neck


Model: Schecter C-1 Custom
Finish: See Thru Blue "looks black in my videos":scratch:
Body: Mahogany w/Quilted Maple
Neck: Maple
Fingerboard: Ebony
Construction: Neck-Thru
Frets: 24 Medium
Scale: 24.75"
Stock Pickups: Seymour Duncan Custom SH-11/'59 + SH-1N
New Pickups: Bare Knuckle Alnico Nailbomb Bridge + Cold Sweat Neck
Tuners: Schecter locking
Bridge: TonePros TOM w/Thru-Body
Construction: Set Neck w/ Ultra Access
Electronics: Vol/Vol/Tone (tap)/3 Way Switch

This guitar is really nice to play. The ebony fretboard is very smooth and easy to fly around on. I was a bit skeptical of the medium frets but I find hardly any difference between them and Jumbo. My favorite feature of this guitar is the Locking Tuners. It makes restringing so easy. I wish every guitar had these. The switch is in the perfect place for me since I switch from bridge to neck a lot!!! Tonally its warm but trebly and their is a lot of sustain + dynamics. I have yet to run it through a good tube amp so I can't say much more about how it sounds but playability-wise its awesome

The stock pickups were incredible for cleans but terrible for distortion so they had to go unfortunately. I went with the common BKP choice of a Nailbomb + Cold Sweat which sound amazing. First thing I noticed were how clean they were compared to the EMGs in my hellraiser. I play a lot of Protest the Hero and BTBAM so the Nailbomb was exactly what I was looking for. Tight for riffing yet doesn't have the harshness when soloing on the higher strings. The Cold Sweat is great for soloing. Very fluid for sweeping/tapping/legato and has clarity on the low strings.

Here are two sound clips, the first one is riffing using the Nailbomb and the second is soloing with the Cold sweat. I know amp sims aren't going to give a good demonstration of the sound but until I my Axe FX II gets here this is the best I can do. Any questions just ask.

Does this drop tune well with the 24.75" scale?


I'm sure it does. People drop tune their Les Pauls all the time. I dont see why this would be different.

That thing surely looks fantastic. However, I tried a similar one (stock with black finish) and it didn't suit my taste so it doesn't play like a dream (to me). Anyway, Happy New Guitar Day! Hopefully this guitar will be yours for a lifetime.

I haven't tried anything lower than Eb tuning but I'm sure it would handle C standard/Drop B ok. I've seen people tune down to drop G on 25" scale guitars and still have good tension/intonation.

Schecter's aren't for everyone, their a love or hate kind of guitar. I'm not picky with guitars though so thats probably why.

Congrats man, looks and sounds awesome. Makes me want to get one again if I had the cash to! The C-1 & Solo Custom series guitars are definitely my favorite by Schecter, absolutely ready to rock right out of the box, and the Bareknuckles are the icing on the cake.

I know. Otherwise it was fine, but the neck just didn't feel right. Same problem with my Ibanez.. Can't wait to get my new guitar :P But the sound of that Schecter with the original pups was amazing, especially with bridge pup.

That guitar looks ****in slick. No joke. Personally I would never dream of wasting BKP's on a Schecter, but if you like the guitar, all the power to you. Have fun with it!

Lol what does that even mean? I'm just saying I personally wouldn't put $300 pickups into a $700 guitar. I'm not asking anyone to agree with my views, and I'm happy for the TS if he likes it. It's a sick looking guitar, like I said.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

Thats the beauty of pickups, If I get a better 6 string in the future I can just swap them into it. I was going to go with some Dimarzios at first but I wanted to check out BKPs since their only 100 more which I would just end up spending on booze or a night out.

Sick dude. I'm pretty sure I'm subbed to you on YouTube. Your a really good player man.

And Offworld, I totally know what you mean. I've wanted BKP's for sooooo long, but I could never really justify putting them in any of my guitars since I never paid very much for any of them. All the guitars in my sig were under $600. I have decided that I'm going to put some in one of my RG7421's that I got for $170. Call me crazy, but it's a really solid guitar and they definitely won't be going to waste in there. An inexpensive guitar can still be an awesome guitar, so I think it's worth putting some BKP's in.

haha I've been subbed to you on Youtube for years

you really inspired me when I first started playing. (also epic Doom reference) hngd!!!
