Narrowed my guitar selection down to either the Zakk Wylde Epiphone or the schecter C1 Classic. I play metal, punk, and a little blues.


Also, would it be worth the extra money to go up to the les paul studio? As in, is it worth it to go to 1200 from 700-800? Is the guitar really worth that much or am I just buying the gibson name?

I've been concerned because I've been playing almost 3 years and I want something thats gonna last me.

The schecter has way better fret access then the les paul, and a thinner neck.

Are you interested in shredding at all? Or playing upper fret stuff, if you do go for the schecter.

Schecter. The Epi has crap EMGs.

But what's your current amp? I would rather have a spectacular amp than a great guitar. Sounds better to me, but if you're not down, I understand.

yea schecters are amazing.
and to CLASSICAXE
its not exactly a thin neck.
its a good size.
but the thing is, its hard to play it with a strap low.
if your playing alot of metal, youre probably lighting up the fretboard.
which you need your hands 100% able to play each and every note.
on my old epi i could wear it down to the point i could rest my sack on the top.
and still be able to play.

on my schecter, the middle of the body is at my belt.
big difference.

I never said thin. I said thinner than the les paul...

I personally hate schecters.... Fat necks compared to my ibanez....
