Description

The Schecter CR-6 has the looks, feel, and sound of a guitar designed to catapult your playing into a whole new stratosphere.

Armed with Schecter USA Apocalypse-II pickups, the CR-6 ushers in sonic destruction on a catastrophic level. The Apocalypse-II pickups deliver a crushing mid-range while maintaining a tight, focused, and articulate response, designed to shake the ground you stand on. The volume/(coil split)/tone 3-way switch controls allows you to maximize all of the tonal capabilities these bone crunching pickups offer and with premium-grade CTS potentiometers you are assured reliability and precision.

Sporting a new and exciting hybrid take on Schecter’s famed C-shape body, the CR-6 has a perfectly balanced mahogany body with a beautiful and exotic poplar burl top.

The 3-piece maple bolt-on neck with Ultra Thin C shape is reinforced with two carbon fiber rods to give you a shred-ready neck while maintaining total strength and stability. The 25.5” scale length provides super-fast response over a warmth inducing Wenge fretboard appointed with 24 extra jumbo frets.

The guitar is finished off with a Schecter Diamond Hardtail bridge, high quality Schecter tuners, and the ever reliable Graphtech Black Tusq XL nut. Case sold separately.
