The Schecter Kenny Hickey C-1 delivers the signature metal tones he made famous with Type O Negative.

Schecter's Kenny Hickey Signature C-1 EX guitar boasts a Mahogany body, mahogany set-neck with Ultra Access, a 26.5" baritone scale with factory B tuning, Seymour Duncan JB bridge pickup, Sustainiac system in the neck (harmonic mode, mix mode, and regular) for infinite controllable sustain, a Kill-Switch, "Steele Green" finish with black binding, green inlays, and more. This guitar sounds incredible. It has a very punchy aggressive tone with a tight bottom end. The neck is thin and comfortable, and the Sustainer system is fun and responsive.

3-pc Mahogany Neck
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Seymour Duncan JB (SH-4)/Sustainiac® Pickups
Bridge: The world's most popular humbucker. Provides slammin' output while retaining singing highs, aggressive harmonics, and just the right blend of sustain and distortion. Goes from sweet warm tones to raw rock 'n' roll. Sustainiac®: This Driver/Pickup produces beautiful Humbucker tones when Sustain switch is off, and works as the Sustainiac Driver when switched On. The Sustainiac Driver creates an infinite feedback sustain of string vibrations by electromagnetic feedback.

Rosewood Fingerboard  
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

Schecter Locking Tuners
Schecter Locking Tuners feature a locking screw pin to lock the string into place for greater tuning stability. Details include a 19:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine tuning adjustments, removable knobs, threaded peghead bushing, and a 10mm diameter peg hole.

Comments about Schecter Kenny Hickey Signature C-1 EX Electric Guitar:

I've been using this beauty for like 6 months now, there isn't a thing that doesn't make me mad about it! I mostly play doom/death metal which requires going lower than C in tuning. It came tuned in B since it's kinda considered as a baritone which means you cannot go higher than C, although I did only once when I tuned up to Eb with the original strings which I think were 12s or up which wasn't clever at all because the A string snapped eventually after tuning it down to Bb and trying to tune it back up to C. I find 11 gauge strings are the perfect ones for this guitar because it's easier to tune up and play barre's. But you can always go higher in gauges as longs as you stay lower than C which will also allow you to use it as a bass. I just love how low I can go with tuning without being so worried about fret buzz. Guitar plays well on both channels and pickups, but I find the Sustainiac (Bridger) to sound better for cleans/acoustic. You willl only enjoy the Sustainiac when you figure out how to adjust and play with it. Simply put: Long, terrific sustain. I usually plug my guitar to the UX2 whether I'm jamming or recording which sounds beautiful with the right effects and tweaks. It doesn't sound bad at all even when plugged into the Boss MT-2 and a cheap Roland Cube. Restringing couldn't be easier with the lockings. I noticed that the bridge might need a change but I thought I'd leave it for now until it's totally worn out. The paint job could've been a bit better in some spots, but it's almost 99% perfect. I only wish they'd used any type of wood for the fretboard other than rosewood; it's just irritating when it gets dirty all the time. Overall, this piece of equipment is at the top for me. It's a great value and perhaps the best investment I've made in an instrument. Absolutely worth it!
