      Rockabilly sounds with a touch of snarl.

      The Ultra III Electric Guitar features a mahogany body with raised center and sculpted edge, rosewood fingerboard, pearl block inlays, Duncan Designed FG-101 pickups, and a Tune-o-matic-style bridge with Bigsy B-50 vibrato tailpiece.

      3-piece mahogany neck
      Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability, 3-piece necks can withstand the test of time. 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.

      Rosewood fingerboard
      The most commonly used fretboard wood, 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.

      Duncan Designed FG-101 pickups.
      Captures the big, brash sound of the great rockabilly hollow-body guitars with a touch of "snarl" thrown in.

      Roller TOM wtih Bigsby B-50
      Bigsby B-50 TRUE VIBRATO bridge allows musicians to bend the pitch of notes or entire chords with their pick hand for various effects. The pitch can be shifted up and down. Matched with a Tune-O-Matic bridge with Roller saddles keeps the tuning in pitch even in the most extreme vibrato bends.

      Grover tuners
      Grover Rotomatics with 18:1 gear ratio. 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.

      Case sold separately.

      • Mahogany body with raised center
      • 3-piece mahogany neck
      • Rosewood fingerboard
      • 25-1/2" scale

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Ultra III Electric Guitar:

        I can imagine guitar geeks sitting around deciding what kind of new guitars to make. The people who came up with this are beautifully crazy. This guitar was risky: retro body, Bigsby, 3 vintage-type pickups that can also do hard rock; high quality wood and electronics. I'll tell you one thing, it works. This guitar is a masterpiece.
        It was set up and ready to go out of the box. Smooth playing, great Jazz, Blues and Rock tones. Every detail appears to be perfect. I hated to put it down to go to bed. I have over 30 guitars, from vintage Les Pauls to Strats, and a few Jazz guitars. I also have a Schecter Hellraiser. I love that for hard Rock and Metal, but I was afraid this Ultra would be another guitar like that. It is not, but it does have Schecter quality. You may not like the way a Schecter plays or sounds (if you are wacko), but you CANNOT say a Schecter is not quality. I am very impressed by this guitar and I applaud Schecter. I have never given a guitar a "5" rating, but this guitar is a great value. Well done! Thank you.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Ultra III Electric Guitar:

        This is an exelent guitar with only a few minor drawbacks. I highly recomend.
        I love the pickup selection, and the pickups themselves sound great clean and distorted, however, the single coils are very low output
        I got my '08 Ultra III used and I have had no electrical issues with it whatsoever. However, It did pull a strap button, screw and all, out right before I went onstage. It was an easy fix, but this may be because I jump around onstage alot, and since this is a heavy guitar, I blame myself.
        This is exelent value for money

        Okay Guitar

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Ultra III Electric Guitar:

        Cool guitar, would be cooler if it worked right or if you could return/exchange it.
        Volume, Tone, three 3-way switches to turn pickups on/off or split the mini-humbuckers to single coil. Bigsby tremolo, Grover turners, graftech nut, roller bridge, set neck...sweet
        Minor finish flaws nothing big, but my biggest concern is whether the pickups and switches are working correctly. In single coil it is super quiet, enough that the amp needs to be turned up. I've tried other guitars with the same amp settings and even with single coils they are louder than even the humbuckers on this guitars. Note that this is for some reason a non-returnable item, so if it doesn't work right "tough luck" call Schecter maybe they will care.
        Like I said in the quality, not much of a value at this price. There are much better guitars for less.
