OVERVIEW

An axe between a baritone guitar and a bass with a unique silhouette, a set neck and custom inlays.

Tuned one octave below standard tuning, the Schecter Robert Smith ULTRACURE VI Electric Guitar is an improvement over the 6-string bass of the early '60s. This model features a set neck for added sustain and durability. The ULTRACURE VI is the perfect instrument for guitarists who are cure fans and want to add depth to their own music. With its 30" scale, it can be strummed like a guitar or plucked like a bass. Seymour Duncan SJAG-1 Pickups with 3 On-Off switches permit a maximum number of pickup combinations while single master volume and tone controls simplify overall sonic adjustments. A TonePros bridge and Grover tuners permit perfect intonation and accurate tuning.

Grover Tuners
The original Rotomatic® with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination

Maple Fingerboard
Very bright and dense, Maple is highly reflective. When used on a fretboard, Maple encourages tremendous amounts of higher overtones and its tight, almost filtered away bass favors harmonics and variations in pick attack.

Seymour Duncan SJAG-1 Pickups
Every detail in sound, construction, and appearance is faithfully duplicated in this vintage pickup. Even the original hand grinding process is used on the magnetic pole pieces. The result is that classic '60s sound. Middle pickup is reverse wound, reverse polarity ("RW/RP") to create a hum canceling effect when used together with the bridge or neck pickup.

3-pc Maple w/Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Rods Neck
Made with 3 pieces of maple for extra stability. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3 piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability. Two Carbon Fiber Rods are installed next to the Truss Rod for extra stability. Stronger than an equivalent volume of steel, Carbon Fiber adds little weight, but adds significant stiffness.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Robert Smith ULTRACURE VI Electric Guitar:

This (originally a Fender VI bass guitar) has been the secret weapon to the Cure's unique sound for most of their (Robert Smiths's) career. From strumming and power chords, to his signature simple, yet complex solos, that are always as easy to figure out whose playing as when he sings, there is a reason why even the Beatles never were as unique & diverse and genr"kill oûe as the Cure. Sure the 6 string was part of it, but, no one can sound like Cure. Some may argueof "why would anybody?," and sure I understand the objections, from vocals to everything else. If you are able to hear past that, and listen to B sides and nonsingles, you will hear a band that has at least one some that all will love, and be immediately recognized as the Cure, even though every song is completely unique from genre, to singing style, to format. They truly are the best music group, with Robert Smith the best songwriter of all time....with only Martin Gore's Depeche Mode as close a second as is possible, and Thom York's Radiohead a close third. Namaste(well), Bran from BOLAFELD (LymieVoid fan channel on YouTube)

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Robert Smith ULTRACURE VI Electric Guitar:

I'm a song writer and a new different guitar will usually inspire some new songs. This guitar looks like it's got few inside._
I bought an Agile LP Baritone and immediately a new song jumped out of that._
I'd like to buy this guitar, but I may have to get a cheaper knock off, like the Squier bass VI.
