Plek'd for Supreme Playability and Precise Intonation

The Schecter Banshee Elite-6 FR S solidbody electric guitar is one supremely expressive instrument. Not only will you get the rock-solid construction and great playability that Schecter Diamond Series guitars are known for, but the sophisticated electronics package and custom Floyd Rose 1500 tremolo open the doors to sound and note manipulation. The Sustainiac pickup at the neck puts an exciting sonic tool right at your fingertips, giving you unending sustain to feed your creativity. Plus, we ran this guitar through our Plek machine and replaced the stock nut for supreme playability and precision intonation. Get a Banshee Elite-6 FR S in your hands, hold on tight, and see where it takes you.

Schecter Diamond Series Banshee Elite-6 FR S Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Sweetwater's Plek upgrade
  • Built for supreme playability and tone
  • Sustainiac pickup holds notes as long as you want
  • Custom Floyd Rose 1500 locking trem designed for Schecter
Sweetwater's Plek upgrade

This Schecter Banshee Elite-6 FR S has been specially tweaked in Sweetwater's very own Plek Pro machine. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Add to that a custom setup, a set of fresh strings, and Sweetwater's extensive 55-point Evaluation, and right out of the box, the Schecter Banshee Elite-6 FR S is bound to be one of the nicest-playing guitars you ever pick up.

Built for supreme playability and tone

The Schecter Diamond Series Banshee Elite-6 FR S is, at its core, an extremely high-quality instrument. The Schecter Custom Shop SuperCharger Mach-6 bridge pickup covers your basics, easily jumping between chunky rhythm tones and fluid leads. The 7-piece ultra-thin C-shaped neck and neck-through design deliver rock-solid reliability and sustain, and Schecter loaded the compound-radius fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets for big bends and fast licks. Rounding out the features is a flame maple top that both looks gorgeous and adds a bit of snap to your sound. Together, these appointments make Schecter Diamond Series Banshee Elite-6 FR S competitive with guitars costing much more.

Sustainiac pickup holds notes as long as you want

Schecter put a Sustainiac pickup at the neck of the Banshee Elite-6 FR S, which gives you unending sustain and nearly infinite creative possibilities. The Sustainiac gives you the option to have a fundamental note hang on forever or coax harmonically rich feedback from your guitar. For the sonically adventurous, a 3-way switch toggles you between Fundamental, Mix, and Harmonic modes, giving you access to a huge number of inspired sounds.

Custom Floyd Rose 1500 locking trem designed for Schecter

At Sweetwater, we've seen more than a few trems come through over the years, from Bigsbys to Floyd Roses. Schecter opted for the Floyd Rose 1500 trem. Its custom knife edge, stainless steel construction, and classic Floyd Rose styling ensure you'll stay in tune even with the most vigorous trem work.

Schecter Diamond Series Banshee Elite-6 FR S Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Electric guitar engineered for ultimate expressiveness
  • Plek'd for outstanding playability and intonation
  • Sustainiac neck pickup allows for 3 modes of endless sustain
  • Floyd Rose 1500 double-locking trem custom for Schecter
  • USA Custom Shop SuperCharger Mach-6 bridge pickup
  • Stainless steel frets never wear out
  • Ultra-thin "C" neck profile is incredibly fast
  • Neck-through construction adds to the natural sustain of the body
The Banshee Elite-6 FR S gives you all the tools you need for complete sonic control.

Delivers as Promised

This is my 42nd electric guitar, so I have a lot to compare it with. I have everything from Artist Series PRS's, Les Paul R9, Customs and Standard, Duesenberg, Ibanez JEM7 and Artist Series, ESP, G&L and a slew of other Fenders and Gibsons. The Schecter Banshee Elite compares more than favorably with all of these for a lot less money. The fit and finish is on a par with US built PRS guitars. It has a very fast and slick neck with awesome accessibility. The sustaniac pickup performs as advertised and the Floyd Rose 1500 tremolo stays in perfect tune. What's not to like? This guitar was delivered in less than 48 hours and was ready to play, not requiring any neck or action adjustment. It is plek'd and has stainless steel frets so it promises very little maintenance down the road. Thanks to Matt Fawcett and the rest of the Sweetwater staff for putting this deal together.
Music background: Have played guitar professionaly for over 40 years. I also play Dobro, Saxophone, Pedal Steel and Piano.
