SGR C-1 Electric Guitar Review – Excellent Beginner Choice

In this review, we’ll be looking at an SGR by Schecter C-1 model beginner electric guitar. If you have never heard of the SGR brand, actually it stands for Schecter Guitar Research and aimed at people who are on a low budget.

You can think of SGR as Squier by Fender, or Epiphone by Gibson…etc SGR guitars are great value for money instruments and been always a reasonable option for many people.

In the video below, you’ll see an SGR C-1 guitar but the title says it’s a Sunset Pack. Do not worry, it’s all the same guitar, no difference except Sunset Pack comes with basic accessories and an amp, but the C-1 model is only the guitar. And you’ll see that the version you are holding is written on the truss rod cover. Let’s hear the guitar first;

As you can see, it’s priced quite reasonable and very accessible for many beginners. Its basswood body, double-cut body design, 24 frets and high output pickups make SGR by Schecter C-1 electric guitar a great option if you are to start playing the guitar.

I would definitely trust the SGR brand as it’s very easy to understand that they even care about their low budget options and they take their business seriously. Without them interfering with the factories in China, this built quality wouldn’t have been possible.

I would like to feature another video of me playing a solo on this guitar, using Fender Pro Junior and Boss SD-1 overdrive pedal.

You might also want to compare SGR C-1 with Epiphone Les Paul 100 and Jackson JS11 Dinky guitars as they belong to the same segment. I hope it’s been helpful for you to choose your guitar wisely. 🙂 See you in the next review!
