Founded in the mid-70s, Schecter first established itself as an aftermarket parts manufacturer, specializing in parts for Fender guitars. Building on its success, the brand then began producing high-end guitars: its specialty are Custom models, built for players like Mark Knopfler, Pete Townsend, Keith Merrow or Michael Anthony. Schecter WAS owned by the owner of the GIT (Guitar Institute of Technology) at one point during its existence, but IT is now under Japanese management. For over 20 years, the brand has now cultivated know-how and attention to detail in the creation of modern-type guitars. It sports two main ranges: a "made in USA" Custom Shop, which equips professionals today, and a "made in Asia" range, whose designs and manufacturing quality convince a growing number of guitarists in all styles.
This Schecter Custom Shop supertstrat is a marvel: it is entirely handmade, with parts of the highest quality, rigorously selected woods, and exemplary attention to detail. The combination of woods is quite special, as it is an ash body-mounted from a Koa top. Resonance, clarity, and brightness are the key words to describe this splendid instrument.
The profile of the neck is neither thin nor thick. It is C-shaped, very comfortable, and easy to command. The frets are beautifully crowned and set, and the whole craft is very precise. It is a really impeccable lutherie work, adjusted to perfection. The mechanics (Hipshot) and the vibrato (Schecter 2-point Tremolo) are ultra-reliable.
Soundwise, it has all the qualities of a Strat, with the addition of a sublime balance of brightness, warmth, and presence in the midrange. The Pasadena pickups (does that remind you of a famous guitarist who grew up there?) have a lot of bite in all positions, and the HSS configuration allows you to approach all - absolutely all - musical styles with character and distinction.
