Schecter C1 SLS Elite Electric Guitar
The Schecter C1 SLS Elite Electric Guitar, here in Antique Fade Burst, continues the Schecter mission statement and philosophy they have sworn by since 1976 - to provide forward thinking, innovative and high quality stringed instruments for pro musicians. This C1 SLS Elite is both elite by name and by nature thanks to an impressive top quality spec.
At its core the C1 SLS Elite is made with a double cutaway Swamp Ash body complete with an arched Flame Maple top. This aggressive yet beautiful look is then rounded off with Ivory 1-ply binding, Metal Knurled knobs and black hardware which shows the level of detail Schecter are willing to go to to make their guitars stand out from the crowd.
For the C1 SLS Elite Schecter have featured a set screw neck-thru which offers ultra access to the higher registers. Crafted using Maple, Walnut, Padauk Multi-ply along with carbon fiber reinforcement rods, this neck is not only like a work of art but provides unrivalled stability. The taper of the neck itself is ultra thin and shaped to a modern 'C' for that desirable modern, fast playing feel.
A luxury Ebony fretboard is also in place and makes up the perfect shredding platform with 24 X-Jumbo frets, which are great for those demanding bends and fast licks, as well as abalone offset reverse dot inlays and even abalone dot side markers for good measure.
For the pickups this C1 SLS Elite uses two active Fishman Fluence Modern humbuckers, one with a ceramic magnet for the bridge for modern attack and another with an alnico magnet in the neck for crisp, fluid cleans. Select your favourite settings with a push pull volume and a push pull tone knob as well as a 3-Way Switch.
Top quality hardware has always been one of Schecters key priorities since day one. For this C1 SLS Elite it comes in the form of a Hipshot hardtail with a 'String Thru Body' design, Schecters own locking tuners and an Ernie Ball Compensated nut, meaning every player will experience high performance and unrivalled reliability.
