I've heard a lot of good thing about schecter guitars, but most of the time people seem to use them for metal. But can they play good cleans or can you get a good blues sound out of them or just general hard rock or classic rock. Or are they strictly a metal guitar.

And can you get them anywhere in Canada?

I have a C-1 E/A check out the review for that one because that is one of the most versitile guitars you can get out there. all it would need are some new buckers but that thing has all your needs.

Schecter Blackjack has Seymour Duncan 59 and JB pickups, which is all about the blues and classic rock. The Schecter Classic is all about cleans with a Jazz pickup in the neck.

Depends on what model you are checking out. The ones with the Duncans are pretty versatile, but the EMG equipped ones should pretty much stick to metal. Also, your amp will determine what it can do more than the guitar.

The long & mcquade near me doesn't sell Schecters (In toronto, ontario), but there's a link in the schecter site that will list some dealers in canada.

I have an S-1 Blackjack and don't play anything close to metal.

my schecter c1-classic has an awesome metal tone. Need gain? SH-6 baby, cleans? Sn-2

versatile, you bet.

My Gryphon has a coil tap, which I would think would make it quite versatile. I know that other models have taps too, I just don't recall which ones.

My S-1 Blackjack has coil taps, but unless you get special humbuckers designed to be coil tapped they won't sound *exactly* like real single coils.


More tones to play with is a good thing, however

Thanks to the coil tap Schecters are some of the most versatile guitars.

Also the duncan setup helps
