Hey Guys,

today I was searching our "local" Craiglist, and I found an online store that sells Schecter guitars. They had super sale! tongue.gif Now the thing is, they are selling a Schecter C-1 Lady Luck for 389 euros, while Thomann sells it for 489 euros, althoug they call it the Schecter Diamond C-1 Lady luck, is that the same???

Now, do you guys think this is a good guitar? ofcourse I need to try it before buying, but.... it seems awesome! And the price is cool to. Also, is it a real upgrade from my Ibanez SA08? I kinda feel when going from a 270 euros guitar to 389, it's not that much of a step up, but when searching I find it's just as good as a Gibson LP!!

I like to play rock, but also a bit of blues, and some heavier stuff... so it needs to be versatile. Somewhere in between softer blues and Iron Maiden wink.gif

Picture is included wink.gif

I played it in a store once. It's a good guitar for the price but not really a step up form your Ibanez.

It is a special edition of the standard C-1 Diamond series with a diffrent paintjob, the Gambling/Girl theme and some ddecent pickups... If you really want a step up from your Ibanez (and a no-trem guitar) then try to get a Schecter Blackjack or Blackjack ATX!!

Yeah that's the problem tongue.gif I was kinda looking from something like 6-7 hundred euros, and this might not be enough of a difference to call it an update... I also checked Fender Deluxe Player (mexican), but not sure about that tongue.gif

It's a really cool looking guitar. But I'd keep saving if that's not your dream axe. Otherwise you'll end up having 3 guitars you like instead of that one guitar you will abosolutely love smile.gif

man, keep saving, since you already got a cool axe is not the best option this guitar you showed. but if you really like it, you should give it a try anyway.

Maybe PRS SE custom? Read some good things about it. And that would be a real upgrade from my Ibanez SA right?

Those SE Customs are stunning guitars for the money Kaz!!! I only got rid of mine because I just wasn't using it at all. I've regretted it and have often thought about getting another!!!

hey, im playing a PRS SE CUSTOM and i love my guitar! You can look at my REC-videos if you want. its really a cool axe! Im no Pro and maybe i cant judging the quality of guitars but i love playing my baby!
I think that could be a good decision!

by the way i bought the guitar (3 years old) for 420 €, new is it 769 €, so its not that expensive!
