    Schecter C-1 Artist. String-thru body, set neck, access heel, Grover tuners, real Duncan JB/59, pearloid fret markers and binding, 25.5" scale. Got some odds an ends thrown in too - some nice black knobs, switch tip, a set of NYXL's and a hard case. It looks like it was played pretty hard by the previous owner but still has life in it. I cleaned it up, threw some 12-60's on it and set it up for drop B. Not too shabby for $170, eh?

    Congrats. The only two Schecters I’ve played were both really solid.

    Nice looking ax! Schecter is a great guitar manufacturer that offers many different models in different price ranges and for different tastes. As a left handed guitar player, I particularly appreciate the large range of left handed models the company offers. Best of luck with your new guitar!

    Nice one what specific styles do you play with that low tuning? I really like a lot of Scandinavian Black metal (although I try to avoid the Satanic stuff and listen to mostly Viking themed bands like Amon Amarth and Abbath - just my personal preference) and also some stoner, doom etc...

    Thanks! To be totally honest I got this for when I’m feeling nostalgic to play Slipknot songs I listened to when I was about 11 lol. The plan was to find a really cheap strat-scale electric to tinker with and try to set up for drop b/drop a. This way I’m not risking damage to a nicer instrument and I have the means available if I want to branch out into new music. I’m still semi-new to guitar.

    I couldn’t justify spending very much on this given how little it’s going to get played. This guitar kind of fell into my lap and given how cheap it was I grabbed it as it’s miles ahead of a beater Squier or something like that for the same price. What’s even better is if on the off chance I totally destroyed this thing trying to mod it, I could recoup the cost selling the parts. I mostly play rock, punk, rockabilly, etc. between standard E and D... some Misfits, Social Distortion, Ghost, The Creepshow, the list goes on. but I have other guitars for that. :)

    My second guitar was an Ibanez RGR321EX, it's been used as a test platform for tinkering and has been collecting dust since I stopped playing metal and got my first Gretsch.
    I resoldered the standard pickups, gave it a tune up and played it again for the first time again yesterday.
    I forgot how cool it was to play in those low tunings with massive gain.
    Still put it up for sale today though, i'm trying to scale down to 5 guitars but am at 8.
    Surprised to see quite a few fellow metal players here!

    Anyway, happy NGD and happy schredding!
