Schecter Banshee Elite-6 Cat's Eye Pearl
Manufacturer's ID: SCH1260
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.
This top-line Banshee is a mix of beautiful wood and construction with cutting edge performance features. Each Banshee Elite has maple and walnut multi-ply neck with the neck-thru construction. This shows through the Flamed maple top with its lovely translucent 'Cat's Eye Pearl' finish.
The neck is nice and thin with a compound radius Ebony fretboard of 12-16". Playing is a breeze right up the neck due to the Ultra Access neck joint: the heel is sculpted right in and the body cutaways are deep to allow unhindered access to those nose-bleed frets. A nice touch is the side position markers: they glow in the dark so you won't play the wrong chord on a dark stage!
A set of USA made Schecter SuperCharger humbuckers supply a high voltage chunk for serious riffing and shredding.
This Banshee is a guitar equipped for the modern age. For guitarists with eyes firmly locked onto the future, this is a great bet.
