A trio of hand-wound pickups deliver monumental tone

Schecter pickups from the mid-'70s and early-'80s have become highly sought after by players worldwide. If you're a tone-chaser, you'll be happy to know that Schecter is now making a complete line of custom pickups - including their legendary MonsterTone single-coils, all fastidiously hand-wound in the company's Sun Valley, California factory. MonsterTone pickups epitomize the classic Schecter single-coil tone, popularized by Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler. Although these classic single-coils provide you with lush clean tones, they also heat up nicely when played through an overdriven tube amp. From chimey cleans to overdriven rock 'n' roll, this Schecter USA Custom Shop Traditional solidbody electric guitar is your one-stop tone shop.

Schecter Guitar Research - a brief history

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, Prince, Stone Temple Pilots, Nevermore, and Black Label Society.

Better than I expected.

I owned a Schecter PT Fastback which I like and decided to get a Schecter strat style guitar to go with it. You carried a good selection and I ordered the traditional in vintage burst. It arrived in the time estimated in good condition. This guitar is well made. It was set up perfectly and was still in tune! The fret work is second to none and the finish is perfect. I like the fact that they used a single piece of swamp ash for the body. The pickups sound fantastic and the coil tap offers a vintage sound.
