OVERVIEW

A colorful combination of retro looks and modern construction.

The Schecter Guitar Research Tempest Special combines a retro look with modern construction. It features a double cutaway mahogany body with a set 3-piece mahogany neck. The 24.75" scale is easy to play along its rosewood fretboard and 22 extra jumbo frets. Seymour Duncan Hot P90 SP90-2/ Vintage P90 SP90-1 pickups provide the vintage tones you're looking for. A TonePros AVT-II wraparound bridge adds sustain and style. Case sold separately.

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.

Rosewood fretboard
The most common fretboard, Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

Seymour Duncan Hot P90 SP90-2/ Vintage P90 SP90-1
Bridge- Extra coil windings combined with dual (small) ceramic magnets produce higher output, increased sustain, and more sensitivity to subtle string movements. Pronounced upper mid-range detail that makes this pickup really cut through the mix. Neck- The short, wide bobbins account for higher output and more powerful mid-range than Strat or Tele single-coils. To be vintage correct, the SP90-1 is wound with plain enamel wire on the same Leesona winder that wound the 1950s versions.

3-piece mahogany neck
Made with three pieces of mahogany for extra stability. Three-piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the three-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

TonePros AVT-II Wraparound bridge
Advanced Version Tailpiece II: This wraparound bridge assembly is matched with the large cap (AVT2P) set of Locking Studs. Set includes TonePros œHeighten & Tighten adjustment tool for our patented Locking Studs. The AVT-II is currently the only locking, Piezo loadable, standard saddle, fully intonatable wraparound bridge in the world.
