Overview

The Schecter PT-Standard Electric Guitar is a remake of one of Schecter's hottest guitars from the early '80s. Originally a custom guitar, the PT-Standard is now available to more musicians as part of the Schecter Diamond Series.

The PT-Standard guitar has a creme bound alder body of traditional shape, bolt-on rock maple neck (25-1/2" scale), maple fingerboard with dot inlays. 2 tapped Duncan Designed Superock humbucker pickups lay down thick and meaty tones, or give you jangly single-coil sounds when split. The Schecter PT-Standard is one of the more versatile guitars around.

Good guitar for the money

By godfatherofpunk

from Florida

I was looking for a backup guitar for gigs and one of my friends recommended the the Schecter PT. Not knowing too much about Schecter I decided to try it out on his advice and after having this guitar for over a year now I have zero complaints. It may not be fancy but it gets the job done with solid construction and a good tone. This is good guitar for those of you not looking to spend a bunch.

Bang for your buck

By Brandon

from Salinas CA

a buddy of mine owns this, were in a guitar class at school together and i play it all the time, when he told me he only paid $400 bucks for it i was amazed it sounds so good for guitars this price its unbelivable, nice frets and bridge while nothing special, they are quality. Pickups sound great and theres nothing too high or low about them, very balanced. definetly a good buy.

super rock?

By Jimbo

from Ada, MI

I picked one of these at a shop second hand, and it rocks! ive been playing for ten years, and my main guitar for awhile has been an Ibanez JS, but i never use a trem bar, so the whole double locking system was getting to be a pain. the PT has grover tuners and a string through design, so its pretty stable even with who-knows-how-old strings, and the pickups! they rock! I have no idea what schecter super rock humbuckers are, but ive always said the pickups in my ibanez sounded great and i didnt want to change them, and these sound way better! the coil tapping sounds great as well, this guitar really can pull out a wide variety of sounds. lastly, the double bound body and maple neck look great, and the look of a tele with humbuckers isnt something very many people have, so im proud to own this guitar, even though it was only $300, and its gonna see a lot of gigs soon!

Worth the wait.

By Jimbo

from USS Harry S Truman

I can't really say enough good things about this guitar. Between the solid construction, exceptional finish, easy playability, and simple-yet-versatile electronics, I can easily see this guitar becoming my go-to axe. Some things the spec sheet doesn't really say: - The neck is a solid, mid-thickness C profile with a matte finish front and back, and a gloss finish on the headstock. Jumbo frets, and the setup on mine was perfect right out of the box. Intonation and action are both consistently spot-on. It's thicker than, say, your standard Ibanez neck profile, but it's not unwieldy at all. - The coil split is via the tone knob, and it splits both pickups. They sound great and are well-balanced in either mode, HB or split. In HB, they're solid and thick sounding and amazingly clear, even when overdriven. Not muddy at all. Great sustain, too. - Split, the bridge sounds a lot like a hot Tele with a perfect mix of twangy snap and bluesy snarl available, without being brittle or too jangly; and the neck gives that classic Strat neck pickup bell tone. Think Clapton's version of "All Along the Watchtower." - Between the coil tap and the 3-way selector switch, the only solid-body tones you're not going to be able to get from this guitar are the 2 and 4 position Strat tones that are the only reason you own a Strat anyway. - The finish on mine is flawless, with one minor exception. There's a slight rough patch, maybe 2cm x 3cm, in the finish on the back of the neck behind about the 3rd fret and on the treble side. But since it's in an area I don't touch when I'm playing anyway, it's a non issue. Otherwise, the paint is mirror-finished and the cream binding (top AND back) is a nice touch I wouldn't have expected on a guitar of this price. My only real gripe: I don't like dot fretboard markers. They're played out. Otherwise, like I said, this will probably be my main axe for the foreseeable future.

Cons

    Best Uses

      I was struggling to choose between various models of split humbucker equipped telecaster bodies and discovered that my hero Pete Townshend had toured this model during my high school years so I gave it a try. For context, I play thru a Vox ac15 and generally a Keeley tone station pedal, and my other favorite guitars are an offset Fender custom tele and an SG with P90s. This Schecter isn't a replacement for either of those guitars, but it plays blues and blues-based rock better than either one. I really like the balance and fit, the maple neck plays well (it is narrower than a Fender neck but not too tight), and the neck pickup tone is superb. Handles overdrive and compression without losing clarity, but also sounds great clean. Everything from Wish You Were Here to Train in Vain sounds good, while 12 bar blues, Clapton, and Big Head Todd songs sound amazing. For five hundred bucks, I think this guitar offers great value and I also love the simple, clean look of the black body with maple neck.
