I know there's a lot of complaints with these necks so basically my question is why? Are they to big? Like, what other type of guitar would you compare them to?
#2
well, they're set-in, and made of mahogany, as far as I know. They're pretty thick and round. They're similar in a way to les paul necks. They're good if you like a meaty thick neck, if you have big hands, for example.

So don't play them if you've got midget fingers.
#3
My hands are like Paul Gilberts or Bucketheads so I shouldn't have any worries than right?
#4
Well, my meathooks like the Schecter necks. It always made me more confident feeling that big thick slab of wood there. I've also cracked it off of everything you can imagine, and had no problems yet.

2: Yeah...

2: Nah, I like a big hard throbbing wet c*ck and...

Well, Jeff Loomis uses shecters and he is fast. So your obviously lying to me. Besides, you can shred fast on anything.
#7
ive never understood why people have problems going fast on these necks...thickness of the neck never makes a difference for me.. there really is nothing wrong with schecter necks. they have the best upper fret access of anything ive ever played.
Go get your shovel.
#8
Do the lower end Schecters have similar necks? Cause I can try one of those out at my guitar shop, they don't carry the high end ones though.
#9
I know everyone always says to get an IBanez for shred but what about these guys with their ESP's and Jacksons, don't they have bigger necks to?
#10
yeah the majority of people that say that are ibanez fanboys. um how low end are we talking?..like what models do they have
Go get your shovel.
#11
I think it was an Omen, I know they don't have the set neck witht he amazing fret access, i'm just talking in terms of thickness.
#12
yeah they have the same thickness..im pretty sure all schecter necks have the same dimensions in like thickness and size. just ever since ive gotten my hellraiser ive grown a hatred for bolt-on necks.
Go get your shovel.

After seeing a hellraiser i've grown a hatred for bolt ons.

The only thing I don't like is the finish on the neck. I've got a C-1+, and the fucking finish bugs me so goddamn much I never play it anymore.

What bothers you about the finish?
#18
i just recently bought a schecter c-1 plus. In a nutshell its a beast.

The neck is probably inbetween a strat and a les paul. I personally think it is perfect and i dont see any thing wrong with the neck. Its easy to access the high frets 17-22.

....sadly it still gives me wood every time i play it

Which is the reason why Loomis uses Schecter.

Yes its as wide across the fretboard and nut width as a Les Paul but as thin as a strat front to back so its meatier than an Ibanez Prestige Wizard or Jackson dinky/soloist. My favorite was a Warmouth neck with strat nut width and Wizard thinness.
#22
Old post i know, but what finish do the schecters have? is it a full gloss or a satin like the wizard necks?
#23
like said they arent thick. they arent as flat or wide as an lp neck.

and u can reach the upper frets np. but they've got jumbo frets and a gloss finish on the back that can feel sticky to a guy whos hands sweat alot.

seeing as i play a schecter and we're talking about their necks, what's a good way to clean the neck? it feels like crap is building up around where the higher frets are and it's annoying. it's a bolt-on so there's no worry with hurting a paint job or anything. any suggestions?

uhh.. a cloth?

Hows the neck for shredding on an LTD MH-400?

Good lord the neck on the MH-400 is thin. It's the thinnest neck I've ever played and it's just a generally kick-ass guitar.

OYea I ended up buying that guitar. Ibanez necks are way thinner than the MH-400 but I don't like my necks that thin, it's uncomfortable.
#31
I love the necks on them . They dont feel thick or thin to me . I cant stand playing Ibanez's ( NOTHING AGAINST THEM , THEY ARE GREAT GUITARS ) because I have big hands and I feel like the neck is going to snap when i play it . They seem in the middle of thick and thin to me.

I have REALLY small hands, but you know what? I feel MORE comfortable playing Schecter necks than Ibanez necks. So I highly recommend that you try em and see whats more comfortable. If you like em, screw what everyone else says, cuz theyre speaking from THEIR own tastes. Not yours. But personally, I think Schecter necks are really comfy and they give me less stress on my fingers for some reason. Maybe cuz I hold the neck weirdly or something, but I really like em.

I have a C1 Classic, and the only thing I don't like about the neck is all that damn laquer they put on it! The minute your hand gets the least bit sweaty, the neck feels like it's got super glue on it. Other than that, they're great!

Schecter necks aren't AS A WHOLE fat, lp_dude_2 could confirm this, but only the Blackjack series have really fat necks. Others like the Hellraisers and C-1 + are fairly thin. He even said his C-1+ feels thinner than his SZ, even thinner then another guitar with a Wizard II neck.
But, since most Shecters are set in, yes, most are laquered.
I prefer a painted neck, but thats me

The finish and the thickness just doesn't do it for me. I still think they are great guitars, just not me...
