What we say:
Since 1976, Schecter guitars have carved a unique and highly revered path through the world of original guitar design. No mere copyists, Schecter are known for some truly outlandish designs but are equally well known for their high quality control and rock 'n' roll attitude. For those players who are a little wearied with the usual models on offer, dive into the world of Schecter guitars and discover a treasure trove of original thinking mixed with some of the best hardware and construction available. Their designs fit every pocket, too: A-list rock stars go out on stage with these guitars and so can you.
Originally designed for Pete Townshend (hence the monicker) but not a signature model, the hot rodded T-style guitar is a modern take on a traditional shape with high-performance features. It's a great mix of refined muscle and old-school character and is a versatile performer to say the least.
This guitar is fairly simple in design: the bound front and back Alder body (cream binding on black finish) is loaded with a pair of high output Schecter Super Rock II open coil humbuckers that can be split via a push/pull on the tone control for some surprisingly excellent single coil sounds that are slightly more S-type than T-type. The neck is a modern thin carve (though still with a bit of substance) with a 14" radius and 22 extra jumbo frets for a feel that's comfortable and confident.
The controls are stripped back to the essentials, too: a three-way toggle for the pickups, a volume knob and a tone knob with a coil-tap. That's it! Everything you need, nothing you don't! This PT sounds great: rich, detailed and large in tone with a tight response. We love this PT!
