The guitar trading continues, not having much luck selling the last few guitars... well I could have but not for the offers people were giving me. So I tried to sell my Schecter C1 JH signature model but best offer was half what I was asking, was offered the LTD as a trade which was worth asking price (https://www.gretsch-talk.com/threads/nugd-not-sure-if-it-will-stay-though.210407/), tried it, didn't love it so it went up forsale, again no decent offers but a very nice guy offered me the below so I accepted. It's a 2016 Schecter C1 FR Apocalypse, this thing is a very good player and specs are great for the price point, it has: - Satin finish Maple/Padauk multi ply neck with carbon fibre reinforcement rods - Satin finish Ash body which is quite light weight - 25.5 scale - 12'-16' compound Ebony fret board with glow in the dark top dots - 24 XJ stainless steel frets (first time I've had these and they really cool, have a certain 'zing' to them) - Schecters own pick ups which are coil split and sound great - Floyd rose 1500 series bridge - Grover tuners (new model has locking tuners) and other quality components etc This thing is really cool, even though they are not cheap I think to get what you do for the price they are is quite competitive, I don't know many other bigger brands that offer stainless frets standard, the pickups sound really good an being coil split it can cover a lot of ground, it can hold it's own with the fenderish sound, good rock sound but is really geared towards metal territory. It feels great in the hand with the satin finish, fret ends are smooth, good weight and with the 'ultra access' neck heel you can get the 24th fret with out any issue, overall I think is a good playing guitar. There are a few things I'm not a fan off though, the neck is stated as a thin 'C' and wow is it thin and very flat on the back which isn't the most comfortable at times. The Floyd Rose is cool and does what it's meant to but has it's quirks so the hard tail version of this guitar would've been my choice. The aesthetics are cool, the colour actually has more of a moss green tinge to it then the pics show, the black hardware is a nice touch and the clear pick up bobbins look really cool, definitely has that 'walking dead' look to it which means it may not look right on a few stages. All in all considering I had the LTD up for $1100.00 and he had this up for $1450.00 and was up for a straight trade I am grateful for the upgrade.
