Schecter Sun Valley SS FR III Sky Blue Burst
Manufacturer's ID: SCH1277
What we say:
The title of this guitar pretty much summarises its whole agenda: this is a high performance S-type from the era of the gunslingers and hairspray! It’s a speedy-feeling and hot-sounding guitar with a heavy duty Floyd Rose 1500 double locking tremolo.
The neck is exactly as you’d hope it to be: thin with a nice flat 14” radius and 24 huge frets! It’s a shredder’s delight here. We also have a set of active EMG pickups here: Retro Active Hot 70s models arranged in an H-S-S configuration which have both alnico and ceramic magnets to bring you a hot sound that’s not huge in output but delivers a sound that we’ll say is very ‘VHII’ sounding if you get our inference! These units have special preamp circuits to cut out almost all background hiss and hum.
We think the Sun Valley Super Shredder, available here in Sky Blue Burst with a Maple ‘board, is an extremely effective evocation of a halcyon time for fun guitar playing. Fans of pyrotechnic playing will lap this up.
