What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Grover Rotomatic tuners with 18:1 gear ratio Smoother tuning; better backlash elimination
SuperRock II pickups High output with a big, open sounding tone
Maple neck and fretboard Bright, even tone with long sustain
Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range

Schecter's Stealthy, Stripped-Down Tele-Style Rock Machine

Your Schecter PT electric guitar sports a stylish Telecaster-inspired look with its single-cut alder body, and powerful classic rock tone modeled after renowned axe-slinger Pete Townsend from The Who. Its bright and snappy maple neck houses 22 XJ frets with comfortable action. The Grover Rotomatic tuners offer an 18:1 gear ratio to provide finer tuning capability, and a pair of Schecter SuperRock II humbuckers with push/pull coil-splitting provides your amp with troves of tone to play around with. Even Eddie Vedder has been known to shoulder this bad boy -- try one on, and you'll see why so many guitarists rate it so highly!

Slick-Looking Alder Body

The Schecter PT's alder body features a single-cut contour that looks sleek and grants your fingers easy access to those higher frets. Alder is a medium-weight tonewood that resonates a full-bodied tone with focused lows and beefy mids. The highs are there, but they're less emphasized here than in brighter-sounding woods like maple.

Maple Bolt-on Neck in Thin C Shape

The maple neck on your Schecter PT features 22 XJ frets with comfortable action and smooth playability. Bolt-on necks have more twang and snap when compared to set necks. As a tonewood, maple has a rounded rightness that'll help your signal cut through the mix. Also, if you're not into bulkier necks, the thin C shape of this melodic appendage will afford a better fit for your hand.

Two Hot-Sounding Schecter SuperRock II Humbuckers

A pair of Schecter SuperRock II humbuckers boast a powerful and punchy output. Alnico-V pole pieces in each humbucker will push the mids -- perfect for the lead player. Utilize your push/pull tone control to engage single-coil mode for a hot vintage tone and greater sonic variety.

Secure and Precise Hardware

The Grover Rotomatic tuners on the headstock have a 18:1 gear ratio, which allows for finer tuning and increased stability. The PT-H bridge employs a string-through-body configuration for greater sustain and a smoother transfer of sound.

Schecter PT Electric Guitar

Schecter doesn't just build great guitars, they create them. Like works of art, each design is a work of art, individual, but still showing Schecter examples of quality in durability, playability, and of course, sound.

Grover Rotomatic tuners with 18:1 gear ratio

The original Rotomatic 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.

Maple Fingerboard

Very bright and dense, maple is highly reflective. When used on a fretboard, maple encourages tremendous amounts of higher overtones and its tight, almost filtered away bass favors harmonics and variations in pick attack.

Schecter SuperRock II Pickups

Made with giant sized Alnico-V pole pieces give this pickup an aggressive midrange growl. The well-balanced coil winding make this pickup perfect for a wide range of styles of music. Great vintage tone in single coil mode when push-pull knob is pulled up.

Maple Neck

Maple has a uniform grain, its strong and stable, and it has less reaction from environmental changes than other hardwoods. Its tone is highly reflective, and focuses more energy onto the body wood. Maple transfers a bright tone to the body which complements the warm tones of a mahogany body

Bridge PT-H

This Hardtail bridge is designed with a 'String Thru' body and Humbucker spacing for optimum sound.
Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (40 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great alternative to a tele"
Overall: I've always wanted a tele but I'm not a big fan of Fender's 9.5" neck radius and I wanted coil splitting humbuckers. I also wanted a maple neck with a satin finish on the back. This guitar is very spartan and only offers the one tone and volume pot but I actually like the simplicity. The neck feels great and isn't too thin; very playable. It is everything I've come to expect from Schecter; perfectly dressed frets, great hardware and an awesome finish = incredible value for the price. The pickups sound great. You can really dial in that tele twang with the coils split, but you can also get great rock and metal tones as well. The pole pieces on the pickups are huge. The pickups are very expressive and have incredible gain for passives. I was a little skeptical since they didn't have height adjustable pole pieces but honestly I don't think I'll ever swap these out. It is a very heavy guitar, about a pound heavier than my Schecter Tempest Custom, which I've always considered to be on the heavier side. I prefer a heavier guitar so it doesn't bother me, though it does make it a bit unbalanced. I believe the extra heft lends to a very resonant sound. The only negative comments I have about this guitar are that the tone pot is very easy to turn with barely any resistance, which makes it easy to bump when splitting/unsplitting the coils. The metal plate where the neck bolts to the body adds a bit too much thickness and takes some getting used to when playing the upper frets. Perhaps I'm just used to a scooped neck pocket. Since the top isn't carved and is the traditional flat tele chunk of wood it can dig into your arm. Despite these things I think the guitar is still great and these are really just minor annoyances.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "One of the greatest values on the market!"
Overall: The Schecter PT is an OUTSTANDING instrument. With its dual, coil-splittable humbuckers, there is no sound you can't come up with! You can dial in a nice clean tone and play some beautiful country with that classic Telecaster twang, to a nice warm single coil neck tone for some great blues licks or, say, a Pearl Jam "Yellow Ledbetter" type sound. Push that knob down, crank up the gain and rip into some super heavy, Metallica-type riffs (in less than 5 seconds). This guitar is absolutely brilliant. The fit and finish is TOP notch; this does not look or feel like a cheap instrument and it's not a cheap instrument. But, it's not that expensive either. The maple neck and fingerboard feel great, it is not a super slim "fast" neck like you may think, it's just like a telecaster. The Grover 18:1 tuners do their job perfectly as always and the guitar stays in tune great. I'm paying less than $70.00/month for this guitar thanks to ZZOUNDS.COM and I couldn't afford to buy it outright, so ZZOUNDS is the only reason I am able to enjoy this beautiful instrument. What they're are doing for musicians is absolutely amazing and such a great service. If you buy this guitar, you will NOT be disappointed, I guarantee it.
