Greetings -- I've had a Schecter C1 for a couple years now, and, while I really like the guitar and it plays like a dream, I've come to realize it sounds a bit dark, or muffled -- like the tone knob is rolled off a bit, even though I always run it all the way open. I don't hear the detail in the upper mids and high end like I do with my other two guitars. The pickups (Black Winters) are not the problem, though I did swap the bridge BW with one from my other guitar, and it sounded the same. The other guitar sounded the same as always with the swapped Black Winter bridge, so I feel like the two pickups are identical/nothing wrong with either of them. I also don't think it's necessarily the woods or the build. It has a mahogany body and neck, with an ebony fretboard. My other Schecter has the same specs, only a V body, and it does not sound dark, even when tuned lower than this guitar. I've never messed around with capacitors in guitars, but I'm wondering if that may be the culprit. Also, I never, ever, ever use the tone knob on any guitars. I always set that at max. I do roll off the volume sometimes. Maybe I should just bypass the tone knob altogether and it would regain some brightness. Any other ideas or recommendations? Aside from swapping pickups, my knowledge of guitar electronics is pretty limited.
