The PT is a classic Schecter model, with its T-type styling and powerful pair of humbuckers. Following the success of the Apocalypse range in 2017, the all-new for 2018 PT Apocalypse model has all of that steam-punk style charm that we adored when we first set eyes on this unique series last year. The PT Apocalypse has a raft of premium features and refinements that will satisfy the modern player, especially those looking for a solid workhorse that is built for performance.

Construction:

A swamp ash body gives this guitar a light feel, perfect for long sets where a comfortable and ergonomic guitar is necessary. Giving you a full-bodied sound, this serves as the perfect tonal foundation for the high-output Schecter USA Apocalypse pickups, bringing out the best of their qualities. Finished in a gorgeous transparent Rusty Grey, you can really appreciate the stunning grain of the Swamp Ash.

A 'thin C' neck profile provides great comfort, thick enough for easily playing 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 single-note riffs or big solos. And with 22 extra-jumbo stainless steel frets, your fingers will simply fly up and down the fretboard.

Hardware and Electronics:

The PT-H hardtail bridge will ensure solid tuning stability, as well as excellent resonance and sustain with a string-thru-body design. The dual dose of high-output Schecter USA Apocalypse-VI pickups will deliver crushing tones when used with high-gain distortion, and retain unbelievable fidelity and clarity no matter how filthy your sound. With clean tones they sound punchy and vibrant, letting chords ring out strongly and pierce through a mix with ease.
