Schecter PT Special, Purple Burst Pearl
Schecter is renowned for crafting electric guitars with powerful tones, silky-smooth playability, striking aesthetics and the capability to be played across the entire frequency range. This makes them the perfect choice for guitar players that need to play huge riffs low down on the neck or face-melting solos at the top end. Regularly seen used in more aggressive and heavier music, Schecter is a spectacular choice among Metal, Hardcore, Punk, Prog and Alternative guitar players.
The PT Special is part of Schecter’s Retro range, which features modern retro-inspired models with special features for niche players such as Schecter USA pickups, Bigsby tremolos, thin classic bodies and full hollow bodies.
This model has a T style Swamp Ash body, maple neck with a classic ‘C’ profile topped with a rosewood fretboard with 12” radius and 22 extra-jumbo frets. It also features Grover Vintage tuners, a Graph Tech TUSQ Ivory XL nut, and a Vintage Ashtray bridge with staggered brass saddles, which allow for optimum intonation. The PT Special has a 25.5” scale length and comes with Ernie Ball Regular Slinky strings (.010-.046).
For pickups, it has a Schecter Diamond VT-1 at the bridge which delivers a vintage tone with lots of clarity and twang, and the neck has a Schecter Diamond V-90 pickup which provides lots of treble and meaty midrange, and there’s a 3-way switch so you can easily find that tone you’re looking for.
To complete the PT Special is Mother of Pearl dot inlays, nickel hardware, black pickguard and a unique, striking Purple Burst Pearl finish that really takes the guitar to another level
