The Schecter Guitar Research S-1 Custom III VWHT brings together beauty, playability and versatility. It features a double cutaway mahogany body with a set, 3-piece mahogany neck. The ebony fingerboard has 22 extra jumbo frets, mother-of-pearl split crown inlays and a 24.75" scale. Three Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups are wired to a 3-way switch, dual Volume controls and a coil tap switch on the Tone control to provide a wide variety of great sounds. Gold hardware includes Schecter locking tuners and a TonePros tune-o-matic bridge with a Schecter Vintage S tailpiece.
Schecter locking tuners with Pearl Buttons
Schecter Locking Tuners with pearl buttons feature a locking screw pin to lock the string into place for greater tuning stability. Details include a 19:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine-tuning adjustments, removable pearloid buttons, threaded peghead bushing, and a 10mm diameter peg hole.
Ebony has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of maple, but with more brittle grains, oilier pores, and a stronger fundamental tone than maple. It has a tremendous amount of percussive overtones in the pick attack, that mute out shortly thereafter to foster great, long, sustain
Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups
Uses an Alnico 2 magnet, wound with just enough boosted output to push sweet sustain and rude crunch that characterizes Slash's sound as heard on hundreds of tracks. In addition, it comes with some of the same appointments found on the Seymour Duncan pickups in Slash's '86 recording axe, including single-conductor cable, long-legged bottom plate, and wooden spacer. For the true fan, or the player who wants to capture Slash's recorded tone, this pickup is a critical part of the tone chain.
3-pc Mahogany neck
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 3-piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.
