Really nice guitar for the money!!!

By Duke Midnight

from Rochester NY

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT Special Solid Body Electric Guitar:

First I'm 67 years old been playing for over 50 years and this PT Special is one of the nicest playing guitars I have had. The bound 12" radius neck is sweet I'm a string bender with the action low this guitar does not fret out!! The ash body is light, good balance, and a nice feel with the contour, heel body and arm add the binding and it looks great! Intonation is very good with the angled barrel saddles. The bridge pickup is to thin for my taste and it will be replaced. I liked the neck PU nice full tone the only problem if you want to call it that is the neck height adj, it does not raise the PU that high without the screws coming out so you either have to raise the pole pieces or if you want it just under the strings you have shim the pickup ,I found it fine the way it is. Great deal IMO!.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research PT Special Solid Body Electric Guitar:

      Always liked the tele design but also liked 12" radius bound neck with a little girth, jumbo frets, bound body, heel and back contour!!!! So I purchased one, the first had a bad truss rod so back it went, the 2nd the input jack fell out, no problem to fix, the tone control/ push pull was noisy fixed with electronic cleaner . the 18th fret was high and fretted out every string. I called Musicians Friend who are the best to work with!!! Since I had the guitar all set up they agreed to pay to fix the fret. "NOW" one beautiful playing guitar.!!! The P90 neck sounds great, vintage tuners work well stays in tune!! not a fan of the bridge PU (to weak for me) or the ashtray bridge/barrel saddles will change to modern Note: turn the toggle switch to the left a little get more of an angle instead of the up and down it comes. Bottom line not sure of Schecter's quality control based on my experience "BUT" I am sure of buying from Musicians Friend and their guaranty if anything is wrong! This is a stunning guitar for the price and when set up plays very very nice!! which is the most important thing to me, pickups/electroics can always be changed for the sound you want.. This is the opinion a 68 year old working musician who after 50+ years of playing and owning numerous guitars knows what he likes this guitar while its needs some changes to suit my needs is a keeper!!!!!
