I think that this guitar fits all my music styles (punk, hard rock, emo, Indie, and metal). I am currently using a 25 watt Washburn BD25R. I am also trying out some stuff with phaser effects, tremolo effects, and a wah-wah pedal. It sounds pretty cool. The pickups are awesome. They deliver a nice rich tone when you need it and a lot of ditortion too.
Overall Impression — 10
Punk, emo and metal all suit this guitar. I have been playing for 3 years. I'm 13. I also have 3 other guitars. They are Epiphone LP Jr. that I consider a piece of crap; an Epiphone SG Goth; and an Ibanez RG570. If it was stolen or lost, I would absolutely go outand get another one. My fav feature on this guitar is the tremolo arm. I can play Blvd. Of Broken Dreams w/out buying an effects pedal. I only have one negative thing to say about this and it is that the knobs sumtimes get in the way of playing.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitr would definetely withstand live playing. It is great for solos and other stuff like that. The strap buttons would definetely hold and if I were ever able to play a live show, this would be the guitar I would use. I would definetely use it w/out a backup. The finish will last for a while even though there is o pick gaurd

Everything was perfect. The pickups were set up right. The tuners were even set in tune when he bought it.

This guitar is a Schecter C1 FR. I bought it off my friend for $150 barely used. It is a Diamond Series CE style. It came with 2 Duncan designed humbuckers, 1 volume control, 1 tone control, and a 3-way toggle Switch. It has a solid mahogany body, 24 jumbo maple frets with a cool tribal sign at the 12th fret, a 25 1/2" scale, and chrome hardware. The bridge is a floyd rose locking tremolo system.
