Schecter Stratocaster Custom Shop
This is a guitar company that makes pretty good feeling guitars for the money. I've always liked this brand guitars because they're very inexpensive and the overall feeling and comfortability of the necks is quite impressive. It has a very good balance throughout the body of the guitar and overall present themselves in quite a good light. This is basically a Fender Stratocaster imitation guitar. It has a great feel and great tone that will get you anything that Fender Stratocaster guitar will get you as far as tone wise.


You have every thing that a normal Fender Strat would have as far as features go. You get three single coil pickups and a 5 way pickup selector. There is the simple tremolo system and that is about it. The guitar has a nice feel and the neck in some ways is a lot more comfortable then many Fender Strats that I have player.


If you like the Fender Stratocaster tone and this is good to be a good guitar for you. This is the custom shop stratocasters from Schechter so it's good to have a good custom feel and overall will feel like a good old worn in baseball glove. I've always liked the feel of their guitars in general not just the Stratocastor type guitars because they just feel comfortable to play and whenever you have a good comfortable guitar play then your experience and playing is good to be much more enjoyable. These guitars will go great with any other amplifier that you have or effects that you might have just as much is a general Fender Stratocaster guitar would do.


These guitars are the custom shop so they're going to fetch a little bit higher price so I would look at prices probably just over $1000 or so. I seen them for right around $1300 and down to about $1000. These are fun guitars and if you don't want to go to the Fender Stratocaster route and this is a good alternative for you.

Finish "candy apple red" rplique the MODEL of Knopfler.
The plate is single-ply (see strato 1957) but not white plastic like on the Fender, it must be painted in mtal.
This is MODEL (urait) t made to order the unit and the United States in 1983 (n 8348 CS SERIES)
The body is composed of a single block of wood (unlike some who are strato into two parts glue).
The handle is screwed Saddle Mouchet and has no back key is made of one piece of wood. Situs they are on top of the handle. The head bears the inscription "Lead Schecter Guitars"
The mcaniques are Kluson deluxe and fit perfectly the agreement.
Three Seymour Duncan (vrifier), two volume and potentiomtres qualisation mtal in chrome.
3 slecteurs 3 positions (full / off / tapped) instead of the traditional slecteur 5 positions.
The bridge is brand Schecter, a rod can be screwed vibrato.
At the rear, the plate is mtal chrom.
The weight of the lev is rather more so than a Fender.


The handle is one of the strengths of this guitar. Ms. APRS 24 years of use, the varnish is like new and it seems to rev extremely thick and "hard", the touch is exceptional and trs fluid (but see nothing with Ibanez, we are here in the vintage!). This handle is a real stake in the maker of the passages are absent.
Getting a good sound ncessite one thing: connect the BTE on a good amp. For me, this is a Fender Super 112. A Twin work (Obviously) also great.


As a stratovolcano, it should all play styles: funk, blues, rock.
Obviously it is perfect for playing Knopfler, as it is to play the SRV (10-52 with a draft for more prsence one or two compressors and a tube screamer).
The Super 112 and a compressor enough to sound like MK.
It also sounds well trs funk rhythm, the sounds are relatively saturated prcis, except in large saturations, it is really not made for that.


I use this guitar since I bought it in 1989, she was 6 years old the era. Its handle is great, sounds trs idiennes stratovolcano, with an incredible clarity. I only regret the lack of roundness of the neck pickup, pais less than what can be achieved with some Fender.
I use it on scne, studio and rptition. Hardly anyone connate Schecter so it's always a bit due only leave those who approach it expecting to see a Fender. What they ignore is that we are faced with a real gem of violin, a strato revisits got to Mark Knopfler, in short, a wonder!

United States while SCHECTER

Catalogue Starbound SERIES 1

maple neck
3 microphones SCHECTER

plastic pickguard

chrome hardware




perfect 120 on JC!


purchased in 1985, new (No. A0099), to 8500 francs at the time (the equivalent of 2230 euros today). I preferred to a fender strato elite.
I just changed the bridge pickup with a 450 XL OBL (humbucker) to improve the distortion - even a simple jig, perfect sound

I saw one used last year on an Australian site for A $ 1500 or € 1150

No, nothing at all, no I do not regret anything ...
