Schecter Pickups

Schecter produces both time-honored replicas and contemporary single coils and humbucker pickups. All pickups from A for “Apocalypse” to Z for “Z Plus” are produced in the USA. From vintage to ultra-hot sounds, from six to eight strings, Schecter has the right pickup for everyone.

Locking Tuner

Locking tuners are specifically designed to increase tuning stability while making string changes easier. The main difference from traditional tuners is the way the strings are attached. With locking tuners, the string is not only wrapped around the mechanism, but also secured by a locking system. This system consists of a small clamping mechanism or screw that holds the string in place.

Maple Fretboard

A maple fretboard has a bright sound characteristic. Maple is a hard and dense wood. It is characterized by clear highs and a pronounced assertiveness. The dense structure of maple wood allows the string vibrations to be transmitted precisely to the guitar body, resulting in a brilliant and assertive tone.
