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.
Since they are not restricted to a heritage, the Schecter Custom Shop luthiers can explore new visual and sonic possibilities. This Strat Dream Machine is a prodigious instrument that exemplifies their freedom and craftsmanship.
The figured Koa body is a beauty, and the combination of the Vintage Sunburst finish with the Pao Ferro fingerboard (slightly lighter than rosewood, but also slightly harder, providing a feel close to ebony or maple) is a success. The body is in mahogany: it has extra sustain "for a Strat", and the lows are rather present.
The neck is silky and comfortable, and the frets allow all kinds of acrobatics, and even forgive inaccuracies—a little. The profile is such a familiar C that you will immediately find your marks on it. The locking tuners and vintage-style tremolo are reliable and precise. This is a professional guitar, which provides a great playing comfort and ease.
The 3 Monstertone single pickups are incredible: they are very quiet for single-coils, and they offer a very balanced output level. But the most fantastic thing is how you can shape the sound with the tone and volume pots, and go from vintage to modern vibes. An amazing guitar; it's beautiful and sounds amazing. Finally, a Schecter-specific system with 3 mini-switches allows you to control the sound. Each pickup can be set to tapped power, off, and full power, and give you access to a large number of combinations and tones for all styles, in all situations.
