Schecter C-1 E/A Classic Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar – Satin Vintage Pelham Blue

Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Zebrawood Top, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, 2 Humbucking Pickups, and Fishman Piezo Pickup – Satin Vintage Pelham Blue

Slicing Schecter Tone, Now with Piezo

Ever wish you could fill electric and acoustic roles onstage without switching guitars or hauling extra gear? Then you need to take a peek at Schecter C-1 E/A Classic! This semi-hollow electric guitar offers a full range of bold Schecter features like high-output active pickups, a 24-fret fingerboard, and a sturdy carbon reinforced neck all with the added benefit of a modern piezo system for getting authentic acoustic tones at a moment’s notice. The C-1 Classic is truly an innovation to behold; it encapsulates everything guitarists love about Schecter and does it all with an approachable price.

Semi-hollow build with premium tonewoods

The C-1 puts a semi-hollow twist on the classic solidbody tonewood recipe of mahogany paired with a brighter top. The C-1’s mahogany body delivers rich resonance with punch and handles drive and distortion like a champ. A gorgeous zebrawood top rounds out the mahogany’s depth, with a touch of brightness and bite for a unique take on the semi-hollow style. When it comes to playability, the C-1 is a cut above. The mahogany neck’s smooth “thin C” profile yields to riffs with unbeatable speed up and down a 24-fret ebony fingerboard, while an Ultra Access neck joint ensures unimpeded access down to the very last fret. Plus, this neck is reinforced with carbon fiber rods, which means it’s built to last a lifetime (and less likely to warp or shift when traveling between climates).

Choose your tone: electric or acoustic

The C-1’s three onboard pickup options make for a vast array of tonal possibilities. Two humbuckers (a Schecter USA Pasadena Plus in the bridge and a Pasadena standard in the neck) offer plenty of hot, active output that screams and howls when pushed but still cleans up nicely when dialed back. A little EQ and a volume tweak go a long way with these pickups. The third option, the bridge-mounted Fishman Powerbridge piezo, has become many pros’ choice for full-bodied acoustic sounds on an electric guitar. When you want to haul less gear in your rig and muster stage-worthy acoustic sounds from your axe, the Fishman Powerbridge delivers. Engage the piezo by itself or even blend it with your humbuckers for hybrid electric-acoustic tones using the C-1’s 3-way output selector switch.
