Schecter Guitar Research

collapse expand iconDescription

The Schecter E-1 Apocalypse is a shredder's dream, loaded with a fast neck and powerful pickups. The swamp ash body has an aggressive design with a superb finish. The ebony fretboard sports a compound radius, with 24 extra-jumbo frets. The thin C-profile maple and padauk neck allows for effortless string bending and speedy, precise picking. A 25.5" scale adds the perfect level of string tension for dropped-D (and lower) tunings.

Apocalypse VI humbuckers make for screeching leads and raucous rhythms, a perfect recipe for modern metal tone. They crush the midrange, but maintain a tight, focused and articulate response which works well for neo-classical styles, too. Plus, a push/pull tone control gives you more sonic options for single-coil sounds.

Other specs include a TonePros locking bridge and tailpiece, Graph Tech Black TUSQ nut and Schecter locking tuners. An optional case is available separately.
