I want to buy a Schecter C-1 Classic but can't make up my mind as to which color to get. I've seen the pictures on the internet...but sometimes those can be misleading. I can't see one in person either because there isn't a store in town that carries this model.

So does anyone have any pictures they can post or suggestions as to which color looks best?

There's the antique amber, the transparent blue, and the 3 tone sunburst. From the pictures here Schecter C-1 Classic they all look good. But I've read that especially the transparent blue is very disappointing/misleading. So I'm afraid to order one of the other colors online and it doesn't look at all like in the pictures.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

I own the antique colored one. I like it a lot, I think it looks better in person than it does on the web. I haven't seen the others in person though (I bought mine used from Guitar Center), so I can't really compare by experience. Judging by the net pics though, that sunburst one is pretty tight looking and and may have been my pick had I had the choice.
-"Son, hurry up, it's almost time to go!"

-"Okay daddy, almost ready."

-"Got your pads son?"

-"Yes dad."

-"Have your helmet?"

-"Yes dad, I do."

-"Good, your bus should be here any minute now..."

Hmmm, would anyone happen to have some real life pics of the antique amber and the 3 tone sunburst? I found a few...but the quality wasn't very good. I like both colors...but by looking at the pics I've seen...the antique amber doesn't seem to go very well with the gold hardware? Wouldn't you agree?

Thanks.

I didn't like the gold hardware on the amber, so I narrowed my choices to the blue or sunburst. The blue is a bit more bland than the pictures on Guitar Center website, but I think it matches better with the inlays than the sunburst. So i got the blue one and it still looks beautiful. I would post pictures but I'm at work right now and don't have any on this computer.

I finally decided...I'm going with the sunburst.

This is going to be a huge upgrade from my Squier Strat!!!

Here are some of the pics I found that helped me decide:

I was wondering about the gold hardware. Is it real gold? Either way, is there a special cleaning product for it...or do I just leave it be?

one comment on your bright gold hardware is it will tarnish over time, just letting you know. The dull gold on the amber would be better for age purposes, but not by much.

p.s. both the amber and sunbursts are great looking guitars in person by the way.
