Product Description

There's nothing like a Schecter V, the playability and hard-edge tone keep you rocking all night. The Schecter Gary Holt V1 is the epitome of metal guitar mastery with its mahogany body, Grover Rotomatic tuners, red EMG 81 and 89 humbuckers and Floyd Rose original tremolo. You don't have to be a fan of Exodus to love the look, feel and tone of this guitar.

Features:

- Three-piece mahogany set neck with Ultra Access
- Rosewood fingerboard with 22X Jumbo frets
- Grover Rotomatic tuners with 18:1 gear ratio
- EMG Active Custom Red 81/89 pickups
- Original Floyd Rose tremolo

Grover Rotomatics Tuners

based on the original Rotomatic, but with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination.

Rosewood Fingerboard

The most common fretboard, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

EMG Active Custom Red 81/89 Pickups

Requested by Gary Holt in Red Custom made by EMG. The 81/89 set utilizes the powerful 81 in bridge position and the 89 in the neck position. 81- Powerful ceramic magnets and close aperture coils, the tone was designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain. This pickup will make your leads slice right through even the densest mix. 89- Loaded with Alnico V magnets and has separate preamps each providing custom outputs for both dual coil and single coil modes.

3-Piece Mahogany Neck

Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. 3 piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Bridge-Original Floyd Rose Tremolo

The Floyd Rose Tremolo System is used by more professionals throughout the world than any other. No copy can duplicate the patented double-locking design of the Floyd Rose Tremolo System that allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge. The Floyd Rose Tremolo System is engineered like no other tremolo system.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Exceeds all my expectations!"
Overall: I saw this guitar and knew I had to have it. I fell in love with the look of it, and finally purchased it and couldn't be happier. It sounds great, looks great, and is built to last. The only concern I had when purchasing this guitar was tilt. A quick adjustment took care of it completely. The finish is great, the logo on the 12th fret looks fantastic. It's a simple, but beautiful looking guitar. The EMG 81/89s sound amazing. I love to play heavy stuff, but for those other times you can use the coil tap to get the single coil sound out of it, and you would think you had a Fender in your hands. You can play the heaviest riffs and quickest leads with no trouble on the fast neck. The size is perfect, it's not so big that you can't reach the low E string and not so thin as to feel like there's nothing there. The weight is good overall, and provides excellent sustain. The ultra-access cutout is great to help reach those high notes on those tough solos. The Floyd Rose bridge is great. Your guitar won't need a retuning for a very long time, no matter how much dive-bombing is going on. The controls are simple, with just volume and a pickup switcher, but they work easily with no issues. If you're having any doubts, buy this beast and try it out. You won't be disappointed!

"not great but good enough "
Overall: This Is a good guitar with a bad pickup selection.. the neck isnt bad and the single coil option is a plus.. however the tone is high pitched and the bridge pickup is unusable .. it is dog whistle high.. the second problem with this guitar is there is no tone control to tame or dial in a good tone .. .The final major beef is for a metal ax you cant turn up the gain on an amp over40% without it sounding like total garbage.. I have a set of Zak Wildes in my explorer and they are hands a far better combination than whats in the Gary Holt... Gary Holt does not use active pickups so its more of an endorsement copy more than a true signature model guitar. for the price of this guitar they really shoulnt have let it out the door without playing it themselves
Style of Music: rock and jazz
