I just realized something, as I'm sitting here fiddling with my C1. :quagmire:

I've had this guitar for ages, probably 8-9 years now. I've never once had it setup, adjusted, intonated, fret dressed, or otherwise done a single fuckin' thing to it. Ever.

I've run everything from 9's to baritone 13's on it. I left it at my Drummer's place for two years in a dusty, humidity-changing-all-the-time basement. It's been my beater, throw-around guitar any time I'd go jamming.

I just tossed some fresh strings and some windex at it, and it's perfect. The neck, the intonation, the frets - if not for the few chips/dings that I put in it, it looks and plays like it just came out of the factory.

I can't say that about any other guitar I own. C1's kick ass. :yesway:

I'm trying to sell mine.

:lol:
Out of curiosity, why?

Of all the low end, high end and everything inbetween guitars that I have, this one has always been the most reliable. Every time I pick it up I know it'll play well.

I love my C7. You're right about it being reliable and pretty awesome.

Mine's bone stock, too. It's not the best sounding guitar I have, and the pickups aren't the greatest - but especially this time of year when the humidity and such starts changing, it's nice to know that I can always pick this up, and it'll always be good to go.

Over the next month or two every floating bridge I own will need tweaking, necks will need adjusting, etc, etc. Not this thing. It's just like "Fuck you, weather". It doesn't even have so much as a scratchy pot, and I'm still on the original output jack. I've literally never done anything but play it, ever.

Good stuff.

I really don't play it all that often, and I want to raise some funds for a new power amp. It's a great player, and sounds pretty good.

Of course, I'm not trying to sell it all that hard :wub:

Wish I could say the same for my c-1fr. It would be an awesome guitar if it weren't for the crummy licensed floyd. Tuning stability sucks!:(
Shitty floyds will always be shitty. I have an awesome neckthrough RG, upgraded pickups, mahogany, offset dots, bound headstock and fretboard - it's a fantastic guitar, but it has a fucking Edge 3 Pro. I keep it blocked and it's good to go, but unblocked it's basically a paperweight.

I feel like the older Schecters (like right before they started getting really popular) were a lot better than the ones that are being made right now. It's been a while since I've played one that I actually liked :(

Ahh, the cry of the guitar nerd.

Sorry man, it may or may not be true, but there are so many things that are like this. Like the "Pre-lawsuit" PRS Singlecuts, which are functionally identical to the "post-lawsuit" ones, down to even using some of the same bodies and necks that were sitting in storage while PRS wasn't allowed to build them :lol:

I haven't noticed any difference, and I've owned Diamond Series Schecters going back to the late '90s. If anything, the fretwork now seems to be a little better than it used to be. The tone has always been hit-or-miss, as it is on all the mass-produced Asian guitars.

The problem with saying a Schecter "C1" is that there are like a zillion different variations. My favorite is probably the C1+ with the short scale and "v" inlays. I kinda liked the C1-XXX with the stripper inlays, too, but never enough to actually buy one.

well for one thing 99% of them had bolt-on maple necks back then compared to set-through mahogany necks now.

This is mine. I want to say I bought it around 2001, maybe? The more I think of it, I really can't remember when the hell I picked this up. I've had it for ages. It's at least 9-10 years old. Serial is 0108125, so perhaps it was built in August of 01. :shrug:

Edit: Google says that's true, so this is guitar will be 10 in August. :yesway:
