Hi fellow UGers...
Im looking at schecter guitars atm as a possible future investment, or maybe an LTD..
The models im looking at
Schecter C-1 Classic
Schecter Avenger
Schecter C-1 Elite
LTD KH202
and maybe some explorer models
*i dunno how im gonna find all these in indonesia funnily enough esp dont have an indonesia dealer on their website even though some LTD are manufactured there
anywae...

Which one of these would be best suited to my playing? i would like eventually to play some heavy stuff like machine head, metallica, trivium, arch enemy and stuff like that but i gladly listen to stuff such as bob marley, clapton, keith urban , foo fighters, or other "softer" stuff.. i think 600 would be my budget.. i mite be able to squeze some more but not much and i have decided that i will not buy anythin more expensive than that (c1 classsic being the exception coz i've heard lots of good things about it)
I also need the clean sound to be good as sometimes i just want to play it as it is.. clean so does that mean that i should go for passives and steer away from emg actives? if you havent realised by now im nowhere near intermideate in my guitar journey

go for the schecter omen 6, with an option of the floyd rose tremolo, there about 500-600 for a good one and good alnico pickups that u can use for anything
#5
can c1 classic do metal well? i saw some comments on youtube that the classic isnt as good as other for metal...
Is ltd so bad? even the KH202 ?
#6
get a schecter c-1 hellraiser withouth the floyd rose,its $650 and the emg 81 in the bridge is good for metal and the 85 in the neck is perfect for rock,blues and stuff.
i just played this guitar yesterday and its amazing.
#7
the classic can do metal it has duncan pickups they will sound just fine, also LTD 400 series guitars are some of the best mid range guitars, they have alot of features most companies wouldnt put in that price range.

My classic does metal fairly well, although I will be switching the JB out for a Duncan Distortion soon. I'd say Classic for versatility, Hellraiser for metal (although I can't stand EMGs).
Emo is to music as etch-a-sketch is to art.

Music can't really be judged, since it's all on the same level. Unless it's screamo. then it sucks.

Look at a Jackson Dk2 instead. Beats all the others in quality by a long shot, and its made in Japan. Extremely versatile too.
#12
I've heard from some people that cleans on emgs arent so good and it picks up like every single thing... is that tru ? ive heard the samples from the website and they sound fine to me but they theyre probably make it sound better than it is to sel it wont they?
#13
EMGs do pick up alot more harmonics and such, but for metal thats a good thing, it will make you practice your technique and not play sloppy chords and leads when you have EMGs, and they arent great for cleans but the 60 does alright as long as your amp has a solid clean channel, mesa dual rectos or peavy 5150s would be amps to stay away from if you want EMGs and a clean tone

+1, i own one, and it seriously ****s on the LTD's. Custom shop ESPs are great, ESP standards are decent, but not that special. As for LTDs.... hmm...

Seriously, go for the jackson.

id almost go as far to say as the LTD 400 series have better build quality than jackson japan, you get far better tone woods, set or neck through design, and possibly the best wiring outside of the US

BTW how do emgs sound with a roland microcube? well thats my first and only amp
im too slightly leaning towards the LTD rather than jackson, nothing to do with the whole fender thing.. i just think LTD sound better..
#19
They're all decent enough guitars, but there in no way an investment....expect to lose half thae value as soon as you look at them.

Also EMG's wouldn't sound all that great though a Microcube because they can't do what they're designed to do...the Microcube works differently.

The downside is they're made in Korea and using the cheapest mahogany they can probably get their hands on. that, and they don't seem like they would hold up very well in the long run. I will say the pots and switches used are often superior though.

there are lots of Shecter recommendations, but i dont think it would be very smart price-wise to get a shecter (american) guitar in indonesia. I also live in asia, and i have a cort guitar (k6), which is a korean brand but is actually pretty good. those have good value in asia
