I just bought a Schecter C-1 Plus used that's in pristine shape and plays and feels like a dream, however, I'm not sure about the pickups. They sound very good on distortion (at low volume in my house), however, the clean tone sounds a little muddy in comparison to some of my other guitars but I haven't played out with it live yet. I'm sure some of you have had the same experience that I have - that most guitars that have pickups that are a little bright at home can get a little ice-pickish when you play live. So I'm just wondering if anyone else has a C-1 or C-1 Plus that has the H-102s (Seymour Designed) and what their thoughts and experiences have been with them, especially in live situations. I really do like the tones it has in general; it's good for classic rock and jazz from what I can tell. And it has one of the fastest necks I've played; one of the reasons I sold one of my guitars so I could get it (didn't need an Epiphone laying around when I have a Gibson). Discovered it after one of the teens at church asked if I would set it up for him; basically fell in love with it after I set it up. It took me several weeks to find a good used one that looks like it probably set in the case most of the time because there weren't any real scratches on it; basically buffed everything out and it looks like a new guitar. It basically sounds a lot like my Les Paul but is lighter; really reminds me of a PRS which is funny because I read somewhere online that Shecters were made in the same manufacturing plant as PRS and/or ESP, however, I dont' know if it's true.
