Playability is integral to the design of this guitar. A Schecter Ultra Access neck joint allows the comfortable reach of all 24 jumbo frets.

While standard necks tend to show aging and defects over the years due to exposure to temperature or moisture changes, the C-1 Platinum’s 3-piece maple neck ensures a lifetime of playability.

The guitar also comes loaded with a crushing pair of EMG active 81/85 pickups. These iconic pickups were designed with intensity, high-end cut and fluid sustain in mind.
