It sounds great. Very accurate setup out of the factory and still can be setup perfectly. Again, weak pickups, but at that price you can not complain. I've run it through Mesa, Peavey, Bogner tube amps and it sounded good.
Overall Impression — 10
I love this guitar. Love it much more then any other Guitars in this price range. Put EMG, Duncan, on any other high end pickups in this guitar and it's a 1000$ guitar to me.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Never had a problem. Used Live and toured with. I once'd over everything when I did the pickup change and everything looked great. Ended up going with Strap Locks. I have almost abused the guitar and given her a few bumps and bruises, but she still plays like a dream
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Beautiful setup. The 24 Frets at 24.75 scale is tough to find and this guitar is a dream to play. No problems at all other then 2 routine setups between the day I got it and today. I had to refit the nut when I started using larger strings, but that will happen no matter what guitar, and I had no problems doing it. Everything was flawless out of the factory.
Features — 9
This is a beautiful 2005 Made in Korea Schecter C1 Plus. This is a Solid Mahogony guitar with a Flamed Maple top and a body style similar to a Strat with a string through body. There is a tune-o-matic bridge and Grover tuners, two features that keep the guitar in tune no matter what you do! There's a beautiful Blue finish on mine with a transparent finish that really shows the beautiful flamed maple top and the nice Mahogony body with a set neck. The only downfall is the pickups, there passive and pretty weak Duncah Designs. I had no problem putting a EMG81 in the bridge.
