Paul Wiley Noir

The body of the Schecter Paul Wiley Noir is made of mahogany and provides a warm and resonant sound. The three-piece mahogany neck with set neck and Ultra Access offers comfortable playability in the higher registers. The ebony fretboard with a 24.75 inch (628 mm) scale length and a thin "Thin-C" neck profile also contributes to the premium sound. The guitar features 22 stainless steel X-Jumbo frets and is finished off with stylish black chrome hardware.

Available in the finish/color variants:


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.

TonePros® Bridge

The TonePros® Bridge is designed for maximum stability and optimal transmission of string vibrations. A characteristic feature of the TonePros® Bridge is the locking system. The strings are secured by special saddle and saddle constructions, which not only increases tuning stability, but also improves the transmission of vibrations to the instrument and the sustain.


A “set-neck” (glued-in) neck is a design that is characterized by its tonal and playing properties. In contrast to neck-body connections, where the neck is screwed, the set-neck neck is firmly glued to the guitar body. The fixed neck connection eliminates the need for screws and additional connection mechanisms, resulting in a more direct transmission of string vibrations to the body. The result is a powerful, resonant sound with longer sustain.

Ebony Fretboard

An ebony fretboard is characterized by a clear and precise tone quality. The dense structure of the wood allows the string vibrations to be efficiently transferred to the body, resulting in a balanced sound spectrum with clear highs and well-defined mids.
