Overview

Dominating studio sessions as well as the stage, the new Sun Valley Super Shredder III by Schecter Guitar Research is tailor-made for today’s modern guitarist who demands an instrument with head- turning looks, buttery playability, and supreme tonal versatility.

A comfort-contoured mahogany body with figured maple top is joined to a 24-fret, 25.5-inch scale bolt-on hard rock maple neck to deliver a feel that will be right at home in any guitarist’s hands, while the Floyd Rose 1500 bridge serves as a bulletproof foundation for your strings, no matter how wild you get with your whammy bar.

The instrument also comes factory-equipped with EMGs new Retroactive pickups in an incredibly versatile H- S-S format; designed to deliver the power and clarity of active pickups with the dynamic response of passive pickups, the EMG Retroactive Hot 70 humbucker in the bridge dishes out tones perfectly suited for searing leads and chugging rhythms while the well-balanced EMG Retroactive single-coils provide a beautifully clear tonality with a sparkling treble response and defined low-end.

Available in Aurora Burst equipped with a maple fingerboard and abalone offset/reverse dot inlay, or Sky Burst with a matching headcap, ebony fingerboard, and pearloid inlay, Schecter’s Sun Valley Super Shredder III ups the ante with boutique looks and performance at a price that is accessible for the average working musician.
