Product Description

The PT Fastback is modeled after the instrument that legendary guitarist Pete Townshend made famous during The Who's early 80's tours. This instrument was, for many guitarists, an introduction to the tonal capabilities, supreme playability, and utterly cool appearance of Schecter guitars. Now the Schecter PT Fastback has returned from the stadiums of 1982 and ready to roll into the century and into your hands.

This alder bodied classic T style design has a 25.5-inch scale maple neck with 22 extra jumbo frets for digging into some serious lead and rhythm work. The creme binding and block inlays really make this instrument stand out with some classy appointments. The pickups are Duncan Designed alnico pickups. In the bridge is FG-101, for some snarling and growling tones, as well as some real jangle and twang when its coil is split through the tone's push/pull pot. The neck pickup is a Duncan Designed HB-102, modeled after the famous Jazz neck pickup, and can also be coil split with its push/pull pot in the tone knob. These pickups and the coil split options give the PT Fastback an astounding array of tones.

If you need a real arsenal of sounds, but can only pick up one guitar, then the PT Fastback is the one for you.

5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Gorgeous Telecaster looks with better tone and a lower price!!!"
Sound: This guitar is amazing! The sound quality is great with the humbuckers and with the coil taps it has that nice twang to it as well. It plays like a dream! Feature: The 3 way toggle switch with 2 volume and 2 tone knobs is always nice, plus the added benefit of coil taps, what more could you ask for? Ease of Use: The guitar sounds great, stays in tune. The neck on it is amazing, nothing better than a guitar that just feels great in your hands! Quality: The guitar is extremely durable and is very well put together, then ONLY issue I ran in to was that the knobs sometimes came off with the push pull coil taps but its a very easy fix and now I dont have the problem. Value: This guitar is a steal for the price, played MUCH higher priced Fender Telecasters that didn't sound or feel nearly as good as this guitar. If you like the Tele design and not the Fender price tag (or poor quality by comparison) this guitar is a must! Manufacturer Support: Havent needed anything so far! The Wow Factor: The black finish with full black pickguard, creme colored binding and maple neck is absolutely GORGEOUS, I have had many compliments about how pretty my guitar is. Overall: Definitely plan on keeping this axe a long time, only thing I would consider doing to it is putting in some higher end Duncan pups. However the pups it has sound great, much fuller than most fender tele's with humbuckers. Love this guitar, and cant stress enough how great it feels in my hands!!!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "VERSATILE AXE!"
Sound: This has two humbuckers which both can be split so this can go from LP to Strat/Tele and almost has that famous p90 sound also. I cannot say enough as the maple really brings out the tone. I think Schecter has a winner here as it is very simple yet VERY VERSATILE! Also loves pedals! This is a great recording guitar as the sound is extremely WELL BALANCED with DEPTH! AWESOME! Feature: Not many features but QUALITY features are only used on Schecter! Very Smooth controls, great sounding pups, nice frets, GREAT NECK!
Style of Music: ALL!

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest.
