hey guys, I have some questions

Which is better for most music, Fender Players Deluxe, or Schecter C-1 plus?

Which has better build quality? Like pickups and stuff.

For the C-1 plus, I will probably get some new humbuckers.

I was thinking Seyemore Duncans. JB in the bridge and jazz in the neck? Or maybe 59's somewhere? Which is good for a versitile sound?

Thanks

Alrite, I do agree that the C-1 Plus is much nicer looking, what kinda tone are you looking for? THe schecters are very nice quality instruments, you have a lot of options for the pickups. The JB is very trebly and well suited for hard rock, if you adjust the pole pieces it can get a little better, but the cleans aren't very good, and personally I don't like it as much for heavy metal. The 59 does good cleans tho, I like that pickup in the neck position of my Blackjack.

ive got a C1+ and a deluxe MIA strat.

the MIM strat with mini humbuckers is the most versatile. both are high quality, the jazz jb arent versatile but are pretty hot, i dont think the C1+ comes with coil tap, and umm a fat strat might be what u want.

I'm just gonna go for the schecter. There is something I dont like about fat strats. And on the old C-1+ I dont think they had the coil tap. But it doesnt matter.

But now can someone recommend a good combo of humbuckers?

im only bringing it up because they made some upgraded C1+ for $650. those had the real SD pups and maybe even the coil tap ur talking about.

but now they are back to stock pups for $550.

so if ur getting one wt coil tap maybe u already got the upgraded pups, thats all.

Yes they do, I have one, pull out on the tone knob.
I have a C-1+ and they have the sustain that the fender doesnt. Schecter is also known for being able to tune waaay down. I had mine a full octive down playing and I still had tension and little to no buzzing.
I say schecter FTW!

^laf, mine isnt push pull trust me. mines like 4 or 5 yrs old now.

im saying they made some upgraded models so it depends on the one he wants to buy.
and i wasnt sure if some of them came with upgraded pups already. most of the online sites have the stripped models in stock only.

Dont worry, this wont be for a few months, when I get enough money. By then they should have them.

Note that the C-1 Plus has a shorter (24.75") scale lenght

This may be a dumb question, but what is coil tapping?


It allows you to split a hummer so that you can get a single-coil tone.

On an unrelated note, why all the posts about shecters all of a sudden? lol. People, go out and play the guitar, then choose for yourself.

technically,
coil-splitting- is splitting the humbucker into two single coils (sound wise) with the pull of a tone knob. (u are cutting off one of the singles in the humbucker)

*u need a strong 4 wire humbucker to start with, and the split result rarely sounds like a true single coil sound anyway.

coil tapping- is when u tap into the humbucker's coil with a lead and u switch that humbucker from high to low output.


either way, ur getting more tones with the flick of a switch or a pull of a knob.


edit: and mills, where have u been? there have been schecter fan boys in EG for the past year.

by the way the reason I am getting it is not because of avenged seven fold. This kid I know has a schecter, and he said they were good, so I tried one out, and now I love the C-1+

Really? I tune mine to drop-D and I have to gently pluck the low D string otherwise it buzzes like a fly caught in a vibrator. Lucky bastard

That would be the keen solution. My own procrastination prevents me from following through
