I was told to look at the Schecter for a possible first electric quitar buy, and I ador them. My only question is, why are they so inexpensive. From what I've seen is a range from $449-$949. If they are cheap in money, are the cheap in quality?

schecter guitars are not poor quality!
their actually pretty good, i like em and ive been playing for 8 years, not shecters for 8 years, just guitars in general
for my first guitar i had a bc rich BRONZE warlock, and yes they suck! the playability is horrid.
for a first guitar a schecter would be great, or try looking at some of the ibanez gios, those are good too.
so yea, all in all schecters are good guitars
good luck

They're cheaper because Schecter isn't as well known as, say, Gibson. Gibson charges a lot of money for the name on the headstock. Schecter doesn't have as much notoriety, so they can't charge for the name. They make good guitars, but can't send prices through the roof because of the name on the headstock.

I haven't heard a single comment about bad Schecter quality.

I love schecters! They're not well known enough to be expensive, but great quality. Nice looks too. They play really well, nice tone, 24 frets or more, overall awesome guitars.

If only I knew more about schecters when I was buying my first guitar. I found it online for 250. It was a really nice 7 string! I could have taken it! But dumb noobish me, I went for the iconic mexican strat. -_- I like my strat too, but now that I know, I like schecters so much better. And it's even better because my tastes have changed. about 6 months ago I started to get into metal, and schecters are good for metal. Before, I was looking for an all purpose guitar. Schecters are good all purpose guitars too, but...

Get a schecter. You'll love it.

I am satisfied with my currect Schecter. It will do until I get enough money to get a really nice guitar, and even then it'll be an excellent backup.

wow, im surprised only 3 members not counting me of the I <3 Schecter's Club posted here....

they are the most amazing guitars, i own 7 of them i love them to death, I would recomend any of them, they are all versitile!

it will last you forever, not me being biased, as my guitar instructor/old friend says that schecters are starting to become the next gibson, lets just hope they dont raise thier prices
