Yesterday i got my 02 Schecter C-1+ (discontinued) back from the shop! Its sexy, looks and sound, and i love every inch of it. Emg wiring kit (solderless parts) EMG 81 in bridge 85 in neck (ZW style), had it set up for 10 gauge strings, new sperzal locking tuners, black schaller strap locks! The mods all look great and i hope you guys think so too!

The EMG's sound amazing. The clean sound of both pickups is thick and crisp. The metal tone is tight and full of gain.

Additional mods? I might pop in a EMG Afterburner for more gain. Also might install a Fender rolling nut? or just a graphite one.

ENJOY THE PICTURES!














Go ahead. Say how sexy it is. Tell me all about your raging boner right now.

Umm lets see...
$300 for stock guitar+Strap locks
$100 for EMG set (got a sweet ass deal)
$60.00 for Sperzals
$45 for EMG wiring kit
$120 for total installation (ripoff)
Soo...
$625? Yeah! It was totally worth it though. I find the action a little high, but it's comfortable. My theory also is that the EB 10's just suck ass and i plan to try a couple different sets tomorrow at my local shop. Thanks for the kind words

This guy...oh ya.. it took just short of 2 months to do too. I know i should of barged in there and asked what the **** is up, but im too nice. He had a baby on the way and it took like 4 weeks to get the wiring kit in because it was back ordered. The $120 bucks was a bit, a lot, much though. I couldn't find the heart to say it though

The reason they do solderless kits is so it's easier to do at home!

You could have saved yourself $120 on it!

Looks quite nice though!
Never been a huge fan of Schecter but they definitely manage to make nice looking guitars!

Haha yes i know, but when i brought it to him i had never even heard of a solderless kit. He called and let me know and i was like, go for it.

I think they still use those inlays. My Schecter bass has them and it's a 2010 model.

They might use them for a different guitar ill have to look butthey C-1+ is now a dulled down version called the C-1 Standard.

New Vs. Old

Old-Better finish quality, top, better inlays

New- Set-in neck with"ultra-access", and i think some better tuners. dot inlays also.

Question: Would you say that you've noticed a good difference in tuning stability with the Sperzal tuners? Also, how do they feel while tuning? Nice and smooth? How's the resistance? Tuning rate?

I personally love Grover tuners. They turn like butter with lower resistance and a slower tuning rate which I think is perfect. So precise and consistent, even with the tiniest rotations.

Uhh well its tricky.. I personally dont think they are THAT great but they get it done. They hold tuning well i think but the gear ration could be higher. Sometimes you gotta fight t find that note because its between two of the gears (if that makes sense) I would reccomend trying one with a higher gear ratio. The thing that attracted me to these was the look of them. Thought they looked kickass. Hope this helps!
