Hi,
Any first-hand opinions on this guitar? Looks great, SD pups but I cannot find it anywhere in the UK. Why is that? How would this guitar compare to SG standard.
There is a cheaper lookalike produced by Ibanez (SZR720) not on Ibanez UK site but some UK websites still sell it. Would that one (plus pickup upgrade) be equivalent?

My good friend has this in the tobacco looking sunburst. The inlay on the neck is amazing, it looks really nice but even better, it plays fast, and sounds really effing awesome when you crank it up.

Solid, all mahogany - neck pick up is warm and articulate, bridge pickup is a little muddy but controllable with the right EQ. Neck is easy to play for all hand sizes, a bit thick but not of Les Paul proportions. Easy to maintain and very reliable (except for the gold hardware, who's coating easily rubs off). A good buy for the price.

Having played a Gibson SG, the only difference between the two is weight and tone. The SG plays almost identical to the C-1 Classic

thanks guys, I just don't understand why they don't sell it in the UK. Anybody knows how old is the model? I am little bit worried of buying on the internet without trying first. What other schecters have same size neck so that I can at least try them in shop? what about other guitars with SD JB pickups - I'd like to hear that sound.

The Classic is a part of their C-1 series. So any Schecter that's of the same series with either a neck-through or a set-neck should feel similar (their set-necks have a heel, or lack thereof similar to their neck-throughs).

what is exactly neck-through? I understand set neck and bolt-on neck. Is C-1 neck-through?
#7
Neck-through is where the neck actually extends through the body, to the butt or bottom of the guitar. The C-1 Classic is a neck-through, only because of the finishing, you just can't see it. One of the benefits is supposed to be increased sustain.

On some guitars, you can actually see how the neck extends through the body. Like the Schecter Hollywood Classic.

The Antique Amber finish shows the wood grain on the backside of the guitar - you can see the construction layout.

Heh, forgot about that. Just not so obvious from the front.

I tried 2 c1-elite guitars and c-1 plus in local shop to give idea about classic. they all had very high action and dirty strings (or perhaps dirty fretboard), so I wasn't exactly exicted but I can see I would love the guitar with low action (having played strats mainly so far, with blocked trem). On top of that when I bent 3rd string on 14th fret (and higher) by 0.5 cm on one of elites it was totally dying and action wasn't low at all. So, my question is: can c1 classic be setup for really low action with no buzzing? Something that I see in guitar shops on nearly all Ibanez guitars I try.

Sounds like a bad setup or simply abused guitar in the store. Yeah, they can have an amazingly low action. The setup on my Hellraiser and Blackjack is great (imo).
