This classic-styled double-cut Schecter USA Traditional solidbody electric guitar got us pretty excited when we first heard about it at Sweetwater. This USA Traditional's alder body is highly resonant, giving you clear, bell-like highs, prominent mids, and meaty lows. A trio of VS-1 single-coil pickups delivers rich clean tones, plus ample output for pushing your amp into overdrive. Whether you play smoother styles or more aggressive rock, this Schecter USA Traditional solidbody electric guitar offers the tonal versatility you need to get the job done.

A trio of hand-wound pickups delivers monumental tone

Schecter pickups from the mid-'70s and early-'80s have become highly sought after by players worldwide. Guitarists at Sweetwater are excited that Schecter is now making a complete line of custom pickups, including the VS-1 single-coil, all fastidiously hand-wound in the company's Sun Valley, California, factory. VS-1 pickups are known for rich cleans, with plenty of output on tap for biting, aggressive overdrive tone. Their Alnico V magnets are hand-beveled for optimum response across all strings.

Schecter Guitar Research - a brief history

Founded in 1976 by David Schecter, Schecter Guitar Research originally produced high-end replacement parts for existing Fender and Gibson guitars. In 1979, the company began producing their own fully assembled custom shop electric guitars. Schecter guitars quickly garnered a solid reputation as a result of their remarkably high quality and soon found their way into the hands of such celebrated guitarists as Pete Townshend and Mark Knopfler. Today, Schecter Guitar Research offers electric guitars and basses, acoustic guitars, and USA Custom Shop instruments to musicians around the world in more than 150 countries. The company's current roster of high-profile artists includes Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, The Cure, Papa Roach, Seether, Stone Temple Pilots, Nevermore, and Black Label Society.
