Schecter PT Apocalypse Solidbody Guitar, Rust Grey – 2018

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

Schecter has just delivered to us a new entry in their Diamond line, the PT Apocalypse in Rust Grey!

Based on the traditional Tele format, this is customized for heavy use with 22 stainless steel frets, compound radius fingerboard, Schecter Apocalypse humbucking pickups with a split coil circuit, graph-tech nut, locking tuners and a six-saddle bridge.   The body is Swamp Ash, paired with a Maple neck and Ebony fingerboard.   The body finish is minimal, with little filling.   It’s a good look,  and will wear nicely.  

There are other handy features as well, like glow in the dark side position markers, which are surprisingly useful.

The Schecter PT Apocalypse clearly draws from one of the most modified and modifiable instrument designs, the Fender Telecaster. Thousands of players have modified Teles to suit their own needs, and that sparked an entire industry in after-market parts. David Schecter was part of that original wave of parts suppliers, providing custom necks, bodies, bridges and other parts.   

This is not just a hot guitar, it’s very well thought out and well built and could well turn out to be as extremely versatile as the originals. While this build is clearly aimed at Metal players, with just a little tweaking it would fit in a country context. After all, out in farmland you’ll probably see some rust, in grey, red and other shades!

Schecter writes about this series:

“Designed for extreme metal players with an aesthetic to match, the Schecter Apocalypse series comes with everything you’re looking for to tear it up. Schecter’s USA Apocalypse pickups, stainless steel frets, a compound radius for ease of playing, a lightweight swamp ash body, and a stained satin finish allow this guitar to take the abuse on stage and off. Paired with Floyd Rose/Sustainiac options and an apocalyptic Rust Grey finish, this series will get the job done!”
