Overview by GAK

Schecter Guitar Research started as a repair shop in Van Nuys, California in 1976, making guitar bodies, necks, pickup assemblies, and every guitar part imaginable. Then in 1979 Schecter started making its own fully assembled electric guitars. These new Van Nuys models have classic shapes and vintage-inspired looks and features that throwback to those former years.

The PT Van Nuys has an Ash body, which is a durable tonewood and delivers good resonance and sustain. There’s a traditional bolt-on roasted maple neck which means it’s less susceptible to temperature and humidity changes, with a thin ‘C’ shape profile making it comfortable to play, and the fretboard (also made from roasted maple) has 22 extra-jumbo frets. There’s also a Graph Tech XL Black TUSQ nut which lets your strings easily glide back into tune, a Diamond Vintage tremolo bridge and Schecter locking tuners to complete the great tuning stability.

The PT Van Nuys has a pair of calibrated Schecter USA SuperRock Vintage pickups at the bridge and neck, which deliver aggressive attack, great articulation, and punchy tones, with a 5-way pickup switcher to find the sound you need.

The PT Van Nuys is completed with chrome hardware, white dot inlays, and a Gloss Natural Ash finish to accentuate the wood grain of the body and to provide a classic, vintage look.

Transport your guitar safely and easily with the Schecter SGR-UNIVERSAL Hard Case (sold separately).
