OVERVIEW

One of Schecter's hottest from the early '80s is back.

The Schecter PT-Standard Electric Guitar is a remake of one of Schecter's hottest guitars from the early '80s. Originally a custom guitar, the PT-Standard is now available to more musicians as part of the Schecter Diamond Series.

The PT-Standard guitar has a creme bound alder body of traditional shape, bolt-on rock maple neck (25-1/2" scale), maple fingerboard with dot inlays. 2 tapped Duncan Designed Superock humbucker pickups lay down thick and meaty tones, or give you jangly single-coil sounds when split. The Schecter PT-Standard is one of the more versatile guitars around.

Overall this guitar is Amazing in every way.
This guitar is AMAZING!!! I got it in 4 days from purchasing it online. I plugged it in as soon as I opened the box and was astounded! It's a solid Guitar, heavy duty, and built to last so you can hand it off to your kids when they grow up!!!! The maple fretboard and headstock shine like the gloss on the guitar paint!!! Beautiful Guitar!!!!!! It has a wide tone to it, while i tested different styles of music on it. It almost felt like playing a Les Paul, due to weight and sound. You won't believe how fast you tune it and how well it stays! I had a Jackson Dinky before this and theres no comparison! I notice I could hit notes way faster than usual on this guitar. I wanted a Jim Root Telecaster and could'nt afford it. I kept looking and found this and I knew instantly this was it. Boy was I right!!! I'd strongly suggest buying this guitar for any reason.
I believe Schecter has the best Quality Guitars for the price.
Great value for the quality craftsmanship!

I got this "thing" last april and at first after taking it out of the box I thought it looked great, but as I picked it up and played this "thing" it sounded like a ragged beat up giutar. My knobs were loose, the neck was out of wack, and the strings were starting to rust. Days later it went back to musicians friend.

By Jimbo Diggins

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

Perfect for pretty much any situation. With the variety of tones available, the light weight, gorgeous finish, and disturbingly easy playability, I see this guitar becoming my go-to axe for the foreseeable future. The pictures really can't do the build quality justice. From the mirror-finish black paint, to the fact that they snipped the fret tangs and dressed the edges to make the neck just that. much. smoother. The frets are all glass-smooth and the factory setup is flawless.

Versatility personified

By bsman

See all my reviews

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

My other current tele is an MIM standard, and I've owned a variety of others, including an original 70s custom telecaster and an American standard -- I'd put this one up against any of them in terms of build quality. In terms of tonal variety, this one is head and shoulders above any other tele I've ever owned. You can get classic twang on the split settings, but it also gives you a fat sound that compares favorably with many Les Pauls. I guess you could call it a "desert Isle" guitar.
It has the usual tele features, but the combination of the H-H configuration with the ability to split coils provides access to a greater variety of tonal choices than any other tele I've played.
Most of the hardware, from the Grover tuners to the heavy-duty bridge seems first-rate. I think perhaps the knobs could be a little heavier, and push-pull knob needed the setscrew tightened when I got it. I really like the black hardware -- gives it a mean look and with the maple neck and fretboard provides good visuals. Otherwise, the fit and finish is first-class. The neck-pocket fit is very tight.

my new favorite guitar

By johnnyG-to4xH

from michigan

See all my reviews

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

I bought the white, with the rosewood fretboard. The rosewood fretboard gives you a little more low end than the maple. Iv'e played them both. The paint was flawless, neck is a dream, doesn't go out of tune, and the hardware is top notch. You can get anything from classic tele twang to hard driving rock. And yes...it djents...haha
everything is top notch
Haven't had any issues....it was great out of the box.
Best guitar iv'e ever bought for the price!

By Micheal74

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

I own a 2007 PT Fastback 3 Tone Burst and for those of you who have never seen one, I'm sorry.This guitar has the looks of and feel of superior quality. With two Duncan Designs and coil tapping abilities on both I can acheive just about any sound that I want. If you are going to spend the money for a PT, go ahead and get the Fastback for the same price. I own 15 guitars and have had hundreds but this is forever in my top 3 for the money. PT I love you!!!!!!!!

A crazy Telecaster on steroids

By Kev-SjBuV

from England

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

I have always had a soft spot for the classic Telecaster type shape, so when I saw the Schecter PT on display I was immediately drawn to it. After playing the guitar for 5 minutes or so, I bought it and have never looked back. A great variety of tones can be acheived thanks to the coil split, the solid non-trem bridge helping to keep the sound sharp and the tuning stable. I love it, the chicks dig it too!

Quality lost points on fretwork, shoddy leveling.

By POlaVYH5S

from Sarasota, Florida

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

I love the materials selected - I have a gold top w/black back and bound body. Can't find another like it or color anywhere, too bad. Awesome clean brown sound to it, well balanced tone all around, clean or dirty. Once the frets were releveled PROPERLY, the guitar was untouchable. My friend is looking all over for one similar to mine, but to no avail! Change the pickups and clean up the frets and you're good to go. Schecter needs more GOLDTOP TELES, can't locate anywhere!!! HELP!!

This is an excellent guitar.

By manyguitarzhaveye54

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

This guitar is solidly made. Although the 'Schecter' that made them for Pete Townsend is not the same corporate entity that exists today, the same could be said of Fender and Gibson today vs. the Fender of Hendrix' era and that of the 'Holy Grail' Gibsons. Having said that, this guitar is very sweet. Playability and sound are excellent, particularly in this price range.

Solid Value

By maxxx13

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

I bought one of these a couple years ago as a backup to my vintage 73 Thinline Tele, and now I use the Schecter more. It has a wider, flatter, easier neck. The "Duncan Designed" humbuckers sound pretty good and the coil tap is a nice feature. I can get a fair shot at a single coil Telecaster whine using the coil tap. The guitar is very sturdy and the workmanship is excellent. Very nice guitars for a fair price.

Reviews dont do it justice

By (my name here0

from Lousisiana

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

The pictures here dont do this guitar justice. This thing looks so much better in person. The creme binding is beautiful (matches the maple neck and fretboard great). It sounds exelent. I played this at a local store for about 10 min. Then I picked up a Fender Tele HH with 2 real Seymour Duncans. I thought the sound of the Fender would top it but I was wrong. I tried to coil tap it but I heard no difference. So i picked up the Schecter PT again and pulled the coil tap knob and I was sold. Ill be back in a few days with some cash to pick this baby up.

great guitar

By rheadorange

from portland

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

This is the first time I have ever reviewed a guitar befor. My buddy got one of these a few years ago and he never played it. Let me borrow it and I loved it. His was not the re release, but it was the same guitar. I normally play on les pauls, but his guitar sounds so good and plays so well that I thought about switching. I have looked for this guitar for a while and I will buy it. Eddie Vedder used to play one of these, and he still might. After playing one I can see why.

Love/Hate Relationship

By DTFTunes

from New Jersey/New York

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

I have a love/hate relationship with Schecter and it's PT guitars. I own two Schecter PT Fastbacks, one three tone sunburst and one gloss black.First, I special ordered the Three Tone from Guitar Center and took it home. It looked nice, felt great and then I plugged it into my amp and it kept cutting out on me. Someone at the Schecter plant didn't wire the guitar properly. Therefore, I brought the guitar to a local shop to get that problem fixed. After that hiccup, the guitar is great! The guitar is light and has many tone features so a player will be pleased.I loved the three tone guitar so much that I recently bought another PT Fastback in gloss black to use as a backup. I special ordered again from Guitar Center and took it home. It looked nice, felt great and then I plugged it into my amp...and the pickups cut out on me AGAIN. However, this time it was when I put the guitar on a certain setting. Also, one of the toneknobs was loose. Therefore, I brought the guitar to a local shop and currently waiting for the problems to be fixed.Therefore, The Schecter PT Fastback is a great guitar for the money. It looks and feels great and I would buy again (I am planning to buy the PT Standard once I get some more money) however in the beginning, I recommend for you to examine the guitar to make sure there is no hiccups in the construction before gigging/recording or get it setup by a pro.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT-Standard Electric Guitar Regular:

    I actually bought a different version of this guitar (a telecaster-like SS set up). The strings on the stock guitar were a little rusty but I fixed that with some $6 ernie ball super slinky's. since then, it has been nothing but good news. The neck is pretty fast and this baby looks great. I have used it for 2 gigs so far and i love it. I run it thru a Fender Frontman 25 tube amp (it's from the 90's) and it sounds awesome!

    After owning a Fender Strat Plus for 10+ years, I have no regrets about my PT. It plays super sweet, has killer tone, and just feels great. As far as I am concerned, the other guitars of this quality are selling for $900 and over.

    My dad gave this guitar but He got it in the 80's. I play it alot more than he does. Great guitar only thing I had to do is change the pickups on it to Seymour Duncan- SH-1 '59 model for the neck and SH-8 Invader for the bridge.
