The ultimate guitar for The Cure and Robert Smith fans! The Schecter Robert Smith Signature UltraCure is as idiosyncratic as the the man himself, with its distinctive offset double-cut body shape and vintage trimmings; including a Bigsby vibrato and block inlays.

Modern Features

Despite its gothic and somewhat old-school aesthetics, the Schecter UltraCure actually has plenty of modern features that make it an ergonomic workhorse for live performance and studio work. Featuring locking tuners and a TOM bridge with rolling saddles, the UltraCure has excellent tuning stability; especially with the smooth Graph Tech XL Tusq nut that allows the strings to glide without friction.

Timeless Construction

The Schecter UltraCure Robert Smith signature model is formed from a classic combination of tonewoods. With a Mahogany body, you can expect deep and rich-sounding lows, while its chambered construction guarantees a light feel and enhanced resonance. Paired with a set 3-piece Maple neck, this material adds plenty of top-end brightness.

Playability is certainly one of the UltraCure's strengths too. Boasting a thin 'C' neck profile and an ultra-access heel joint, this guitar offers a fast feel and easy upper-fret access respectively. Glow-in-the-dark side-dot markers are another thoughtful touch - sure to save your performance on dark and dingy stages!

Seymour Duncan Pickups

High-quality Seymour Duncan pickups give the UltraCure its versatile sound. With a pair of '59 humbuckers, these medium-output pickups sound glorious with clean amp settings and overdrive; able to cover the broad palette of tones that Robert Smith uses in The Cure's back catalogue. With coil-splitting push/pull volume controls too, you can attain those glassy single-coil sounds!
