Made in the USA. The Schecter Sunset Standard features the excellent craftsmanship of the Schecter USA Custom Shop housed in Schecter’s most popular body shape - and now at its most affordable price ever! Its swamp ash body delivers clarity in the upper register, while providing a warm low end punch. The 5-piece neck is expertly carved from hard rock maple and black walnut, and the 14” radius and Custom C neck profile provide a perfect balance of comfort and playability. The rosewood fretboard affords a rich, warm tone as well as a rockin’ smooth feel.
The Sunset Standard is built at Schecter’s Sun Valley California facility, and it comes loaded with Schecter’s highly sought after Pasadena/Pasadena Plus pickups, known for their harmonically rich gain as well as their clear-as-day tone when played clean. Add in a durable Jascar 6100 fretwire, a TonePros bridge with string-through body, a Graphtech Black TUSQ nut, Schecter locking tuners, CTS electronics, and Schecter USA craftmanship, and it equals the most guitar you can get anywhere in the world at this price. Includes gig bag.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research USA Custom Shop Sunset Standard Electric Guitar:
I've never owned a Schecter before. I went to GC, after hearing good things about Shecters import line, looking for the new C-1 SLS elites. My GC in Salt Lake City only had Floyd Rose equipped and/or 7 string SLS elites. I don't do Floyds or 7 strings, so I tried the Sunset because it was a Schecter and I was hoping to get a feel for solid body Schecters to see if I should order in a hard tail C-1 SLS.
The C-1 SLS was a really good guitar. Borderline great. I found no fault with it at all.
The Sunset Standard was amazing. Perfect in every way for me. Looks great but not too flashy. Light weight. The neck is like no other neck I've played on (I've played PRS, Gibson, Fender... Music Man comes the closest, but still not quite there). The fret work is absolutely flawless. I prefer neck through body guitars with high access heels. The Sunset geometry is such that I didn't miss the high access heel. The tone, sustain, and sound is such that I don't miss the solid body aspect. I even dig the Schecter headstock logo over the super-duper-hard-core one on most Schecters.
I've never wished I could buy two of the same guitar. I would for this guitar if I could. I can't say enough about this guitar. It's the perfect workhorse guitar. It's perfect for me.
The only con is that there are only 50 made. Try one now.
