SCHECTER C 1 CLASSIC STUNNING MAHOGANY & VINE OF LIFE
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2006-06-19)
Price : US $420
Available for auction is a Schecter C-1 Classic, serial # 0508XXX. It has the real-deal Seymour-Duncan Pups, not the “Duncan-designed’ that many other Schecters have for factory-stock.
This is a player’s guitar. It was bought specifically for use as a drop-D tuned instrument for a hard rock cover band. No adjustments were made to any intonations, however, and it appears to still be at the factory preset. The guitar was purchased used as it already had signs of wear and would make a great stage guitar (already broken in = no worries). It has been to some tight space practices and I have to say it is amazingly tough. The folks at Schecter research seem to have thought of everything. The vine of life inlay is an amazing touch and a rare opportunity in this price range. The current owner has spent hours meticulously cleaning and polishing all surfaces and gold hardware and wiped it down after every usage. The guitar will be restrung just prior to shipping to the winner.
The tuners have SMOOTH action and a tuning ratio that allows one to dial in with incredible accuracy of pitch. These Grovers hold the tuning very well, even when moving to drop-D tunings. It’s likely this guitar could handle C and C# de-tunings, with a tune-o-matic bridge, that should be no problem. The neck-thru design can hold those special tunings.
The guitar comes with a barely used Roadrunner case (w/key) that fits it perfectly. This case was bought for use with the cover band, but another case was generally used, leaving the Roadrunner in near mint. Please check our Martin listing to see this beautiful guitar displayed on our wall.
