Sleek Stealth Styling

From the moment you lay eyes on the PT Black Ops, its stealthy satin black open-pore finish commands your attention.

Schecter PT Black Ops Fishman Fluence Pickup

Revolutionary Fishman Fluence Pickup

Powering the Schecter PT Black Ops is a single Fishman Fluence Open Core Modern bridge pickup. This groundbreaking technology unlocks a new level of clarity, dynamic response and tonal range. A simple flip of the 3-way voicing switch lets you seamlessly transition between distinct sounds, including modern active and passive pickup modes, as well as a single-coil setting. Go from scorching active ceramic humbucking to organic passive growl, or experience the brightness and clarity of a single-coil pickup—the Fluence Open Core Modern does it all.

Schecter PT Black Ops Neck

Unparalleled Playing Feel

The Schecter PT Black Ops boasts incredible playability, stemming from its meticulously crafted 3-piece mahogany neck and 25.5" scale length. Its thin C-shape profile feels sleek and nimble in your hand, perfect for effortless position shifts and wide bends. An ebony fingerboard offers enhanced clarity and note separation, while the 14" radius and extra-jumbo stainless steel frets invite expressive bending without fretting out. Two carbon fiber reinforcement rods running the length of the neck increase sustain and stability.

Schecter PT Black Ops Hardware

Built for Enduring Performance

Premium hardware and construction ensure the PT Black Ops’ tone and tuning remain locked in through the most intense performances. Schecter locking tuners provide rock-solid tuning stability, while the Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut delivers optimized vibrational transfer from the strings. A Hipshot fixed bridge offers uncompromising intonation and sustain, and even the single volume knob has been upgraded to a heavy-duty Hipshot O-ring for precise grip and control.
