We're travelling back in time to Schecter's roots, to when the company were known as a premium guitar mod shop. The Sun Valley series perfectly captures the era of souped-up, high-output, floating bridge Strats on steroids!
With an assortment of high-end features and refinements to meet the demands of modern players, Schecter have really gone to town with this instrument.
A mahogany body gives this guitar a substantial feel and weight, providing a darker tone with plenty of definition in the mid-range. The 'thin C' neck profile provides great comfort, thick enough for easily strumming chords but also slim enough to give you amazing playability for leads. Constructed of maple, you can expect a snappy response with plenty of attack when playing fast intricate riffs or complex solos. And with 24 extra-jumbo frets, your fingers will simply fly up and down the fretboard.
Hardware and Electronics
The Floyd Rose Special tremolo will ensure optimal tuning stability, even after the most brutal of divebombs and flutters. Its EMG Retro Active pickup in the bridge position delivers all of those nostalgic '80s tones, but with more aggression and bite to suit the modern metaller. The thick-sounding humbucker will handle high-gain all day long whilst the neck position Sustainiac serves up classic lead tones with - as you could have guessed - sustain for days.
