For many years, Schecter's PT model has been a cornerstone in their catalogue. The PT Apocalypse is an ultra-modern, metal-orientated incarnation of this popular, humbucker-equipped T-style alternative; sporting a number of premium features that will suit contemporary players looking for ultimate performance. This includes a thin carbon fibre-reinforced Maple/Padauk neck, locking tuners and powerful US-made Schecter Apocalypse-VI pickups.
The Schecter PT Apocalypse is constructed from a light Swamp Ash body, serving as an excellent tonal foundation for the humbucker pairing. Balanced and resonant, this popular tonewood is also known for its strong mid-range clarity; allowing riffs and solos to really pop in a live or studio mix.
The PT Apocalypse's body is paired with a Maple/Padauk neck, guaranteeing a snappy response and giving notes excellent attack and clarity. Reinforced with carbon fibre rods, these stabilise the neck to provide extra rigidity and strength, meaning that any risk of warping is greatly reduced while tuning stability is also improved.
Fitted with genuine Schecter USA Apocalypse-VI humbuckers, this potent pickup combination can handle copious amounts of gain without breaking a sweat. But with a thoughtfully added push/pull tone control, you can split their coils to attain crystal-clear single-coil tones; perfect for glassy clean sounds.
