The Sun Valley series goes back in time to Schecter's roots, when the company was known as a premium guitar mod shop. Letting the hair metal shredders of the era upgrade their tame Strats with high-output pickups and locking tremolo systems, the Sun Valley Super Shredder III is a pure-bred Superstrat on steroids!

With an assortment of high-end features and refinements to meet the demands of modern players, most notably the addition of a 7th string, Schecter have really gone to town with this instrument. 

Schecter Sun Valley Shredders - Going back to their Californian roots!

Construction:

A Mahogany body gives this guitar a substantial feel and weight, providing a darker tone with plenty of definition in the mid-range. Adorned with a stunning Quilted Maple top finished in a gorgeous Aurora Burst, this guitar will draw in lots of attention not just for its excellent tones, but also for its elegant looks.

A '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 1500 series Floyd Rose tremolo will ensure optimal tuning stability, even after the most brutal of divebombs and flutters. A set of EMG Retro Active pickups will deliver 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 single-coils can sound angelic with a clean tone, especially with a cheesy-sounding chorus!
