About Schecter Guitars
Schecter guitars are one of the world’s biggest and most recognisable guitar brands. Based in California, Schecter started out as a bespoke custom shop, making one-off instruments for high-end clients like Mark Knopfler and Lou Reed. Acquired by Japanese entrepreneur Hisatake Shibuya in the late 80s, Schecter continued to make custom built instruments whist also moving forward with original designs. Many of these, like the Tempest and the Avenger, are popular shapes today and define much of the image and attitude of Schecter.
Schecter are very much thought of as a ‘rock star’ brand: their left-field endorsement of artists colourful contemporary artists like Avenged Sevenfold’s Sinister Gates as well as cult heroes like The Cure’ Robert Smith and Ministry’s Al Jourgensen have marked Schecter as being distinct from more traditional guitar brands. Their reputation for using brand name hardware in their high quality imported Diamond Series guitars was won then a strong and loyal fanbase amongst the newer generations of primarily rock guitarists. Schecter are a flamboyant and innovative brand for players who know the past but look to the future.
