I'm thinking about getting a Schecter C-1 BlackJack (either that or an Edwards) and almost 99% of reviews i read were really positive... well, today some guy told me that he and his friend both have one and that it goes out of tune really quickly, that the tuners are not so great, that the strings break really oftenly (more often than they should) and it's not actually a very good guitar... so, what do you say?
If this dude and his friend smack the strings stupidly hard like meat axe maniacs then NO guitar is immune from string breakage - same goes for buzzing out. Same if the guitar is never maintained.
The tuners Schecter uses are Grovers, and the bridges are Gotoh w/ Tonepros locking screws. Both are excellent quality. The nut is plastic, and like every other nut out there (except for Graphtech Tremnuts and other graphite / teflon types) requires a bit of lubricant at every string change for supreme tuning stability. The bridge saddles are similar, you need to lubricate them to some extent when you change the strings. And periodically (especially if a string breaks at the saddle) you'll need to sand/file off any burring on the saddles (I check mine every few string changes). And, this is true for ALL guitars.
The Schecter Diamond series have great hardware, and as long as you keep them maintained to some reasonable extent (you don't need to go overboard), they perform extremely well. It sounds like this guy and his mate have no concept of keeping a guitar operational. It's not hard to do the basics, and you can always take it to a technician if something needs doing that requires tools or skills that you don't have (eg. refrets, electronic repairs, etc).
The frets on my C1-Classic aren't the hardest in the world, and used to wear down quite fast when I left strings on for too long. But, since I started wiping the undersides of the strings and changing them more often, this problem went away.
