Review Schecter C-6 Plus Solid-Body Electric Guitar

The Schecter C-6 Plus is an affordable shred machine that is ready to take you to the next level. Featuring a contoured basswood body with a Quilted Maple Image top, the classic double-cutaway C-6 Plus delivers top shelf quality at a working musician’s price. The neck is constructed from maple and has been shaped in to an extra thin profile for high velocity soloing.

The rosewood fingerboard is equipped with 24 extra-jumbo frets on an ultra-flat 14″ radius that will facilitate effortless string bending. The control panel includes master volume and tone controls and a 3-way pickup selector toggle switch. Rounding out the hardware is a set of Schecter tuners for smooth and precise tuning.

Lightweight Yet Punchy

This guitar is made with a basswood body topped with a beautiful flamed maple cap attached to a maple neck and finished with a rosewood fretboard. With these woods it is lightweight and easy to play but it still has a rich and punchy sound.

The basswood really brings out the midrange which is required for you to pop out the mix. While the maple top and neck give your guitar the added attack needed for high speed metal and shredding solos. So no matter what style you play you are sure to be heard loud and clear.

Carved to a thin ‘C’ shape the maple neck on this guitar feels great in the hands with a smooth finish that gives you great access to the entire neck. This is incredibly important so that you can play whatever you want, whenever you want.

Quality Hardware

Over the years Schecter have developed some incredible high end hardware for their more deluxe guitars and that has flowed down stream to models like this.

With Schecter Diamond Plus pickups you have enough output to handle any kind of rock or metal while still giving you enough headroom for clean and crunch tones as well. Just roll back the volume control and you have access to an incredibly large range of different tones.

Final Conclusion:
A fantastically built guitar that offers up heaps of style, playability and awesome tone and all at a great price.

I purchased the cherry burst version. It looks better than in the pictures listed and the back is transparent black. Really good looking guitar! Now for the tone and playability.. sounds amazing, especially for the price! The neck is very smooth and easy to play all night, without any finger fatigue. I highly recommend it.

I purchased as a birthday present to myself. More for the look, but I’ve always heard that Schecter made a quality
instrument. Right out of the box … It was set up perfectly and tuned. It arrived. As I was on my way to practice, so I took it with me and I have not played anything else since!!!

Completely smooth neck makes it easy to play for any beginner. Love it. I would say the charcoal burst color in person is somewhat more subdued than what it looks like in the picture.

Ordered one of these from my local music store about a month ago. Finally got the guitar in today, was so worth the wait. The fretboard has a great feel. I have yet to experience any fret buzz. The Narrow jumbo frets make it easy to fret each note. The picture on the product page does not do the guitar justice, it is so much more beautiful in the flesh as it were. Has a great sound, about what you would expect for this price point. All in all a beautiful guitar at a great value, I would recommend this to any beginner!

The only issue I had was some fret buzz. I am going to go get it looked at and see if it needs some work done to fix the issue.

I really like this guitar and it has held up great over the past few months of use. To get the problems out of the way first, it came with bad fret buzz on the low E string that had to be fixed before I could play it (with minor adjustments to the bridge). The pickup switch is a little bit too loose and it jiggles around easily. The pickups produce a slightly muddy sound (similar to other cheaper models in the Schecter Diamond series), but that isn’t too much of a problem if you want to play hard rock and metal only. With that said, these are all minor complaints that can be easily fixed. As for the good, the finish looks really nice, it sounds great with the right setup, feels great to play and is pretty versatile if you mess around with it enough. I probably wouldn’t use it for anything more than practicing and small performances, but it is a very nice guitar for the money overall.
