The Schecter Tempest Custom is a high-quality, set-neck electric guitar designed with versatility in mind. Classy and elegant, this instrument comes equipped with a set of hand-wound Schecter USA Pasadena pickups and features premium hardware appointments.
A Mahogany body gives this guitar a substantial feel and weight, providing a dark tone with plenty of richness in the mid-range. Featuring a comfortable arched top with multi-ply binding - this guitar exerts a stunning high-end look!
A 'C'-shaped Mahogany neck provides fantastic comfort, striking the perfect balance between modern and traditional neck profiles. The Tempest's 3-piece neck design will also stay super-solid over time, which is reinforced with carbon fibre rods for extra stability. Fitted with 22 extra-jumbo frets too, your fingers will simply fly up and down the fretboard.
Schecter USA Pasadena Pickups
A dual-dose of Schecter USA Pasadena humbuckers will cover a lot of sonic territory. With a slightly overwound quality for extra bite and power, these pickups sound incredible with overdrive and high-gain distortion - particularly the Pasadena Plus bridge humbucker that has some extra mid-range heat.
But these pickups aren't one-trick ponies, as with clean tones they sound warm and broad; letting softly-picked arpeggios ring out with great clarity. The push/pull tone knob lets you attain sweet single-coil tones too!
The hardware on this guitar is top-tier as well. Schecter has installed the Tempest Custom with its own set of high-quality locking tuners, ensuring super-easy string changes. In conjunction with the Graph Tech XL Black Tusq nut, the locking tuners guarantee better overall tuning stability too.
At the other end of the instrument, you'll find a TonePros T3BT TOM bridge. Incredibly reliable and solid, this robust bridge will take years of playing abuse without breaking a sweat. Feeling smooth on the right hand, this bridge is also very easy to adjust when making setup changes.
