Schecter Guitar Research

Description

The folks at Schecter Guitars put their minds to creating a fully-loaded instrument ideal for contemporary cutting-edge guitarists, and the C-7 SLS Elite is the game-changing result. A 7-ply Maple/Walnut/Padauk neck-thru construction, reinforced with carbon fiber rods for stability and utilizing a spoke-wheel truss rod to facilitate easy adjustment, is mated to a swamp ash body with Ivory binding and topped with flame maple for boutique looks and tone. Comfort carves in the waist and cutaway as well as an ultra-access carve at the neck joint enable you to explore all 24 X-Jumbo stainless steel frets across the 26.5” scale ebony fingerboard with absolute freedom, while the Fishman Fluence Modern Ceramic and Modern Alnico humbuckers with individual voice controls deliver crushing power into your rig with unprecedented tonal expressiveness. Topping it all off, Schecter Locking Tuners, an Ernie Ball compensated nut, and a Hipshot bridge provide an ultra-stable platform to keep you in tune, and the striking finish choices of Antique Fade Burst or Black Fade Burst will be sure to distinguish you from the pack.
