Between a Schecter S-1 Elite and a Tempest Custom, what should I do?

I think the S-1 is a little lighter so I'm sort of leaning towards that...

Poop they are both good, I would get the C-1 Elite. Also clean up after yourself.

I own a PT Elite and love it. I would love to get a tempest as it is an original line and says schecter period. The tempest customs look great in white or black .
i have a C-1 Elite and have played the tempest custom and i think it looks amazing in White
I don't know what your price range is, but i would suggest C-1 classic. I own one and trust me, it is sex with strings.
Ask me no questions, i will tell you no lies...
get the tempest custom in white, it's so damn sexy, but maybe you would need a pup change, the duncan designed pups are not the best
i have played one with emgs in it, it sounded so orgasmic!

but if it falls out and my guitar breaks i'm going to eat your first born.
...just so you know
Schecters are all beautiful guitars and they sound excellent as well. My preference is definately in the C-1 Classic, but they are all very good guitars
Thanks for all the feedback guys, and I apolgize for those of you who wanted a bit more info.

Basically I'm looking for a light, fast guitar that I can play show's with, under 700 bucks. I've seen S-1's for 650 and less, and I think the Tempest Custom for about the same price. The only S series I got to play was the S-1 Elite at about 650...it was very fast, very crunchy. Picked up pinch harmonics pretty well.

Actually, I'm really looking to make sort of ambient, experimental post-rock music. I don't plan on flinging my guitars around or anything, but at the same time I don't want a guitar which will develop a crack behind the heastock after a few shows. I'm only saying this in response to the guy who posted that he didn't like Schecter necks, but I don't know if he meant that in terms of durablitiy or playability.

Does anyone play shows with a Schecter guitar with similar specs? How do they hold up?
