Overview

Fast neck, actives EMGs and a Floyd Rose.

Dominating studio sessions as well as the stage, the new Sun Valley Super Shredder III 7-string by Schecter Guitar Research is tailor-made for today’s modern guitarist who demands an instrument with head-turning looks, buttery playability, and supreme tonal versatility.

A comfort-contoured mahogany body with figured maple top is joined to a 24-fret, 26.5-inch scale bolt-on hard rock maple neck to deliver a feel that will be right at home in any guitarist’s hands, while the Floyd Rose 1500 bridge serves as a bulletproof foundation for your strings, no matter how wild you get with your whammy bar.

The instrument also comes factory-equipped with EMGs new Retroactive pickups in an incredibly versatile H- S-S format; designed to deliver the power and clarity of active pickups with the dynamic response of passive pickups, the EMG Retroactive Hot 70 7-string humbucker in the bridge dishes out tones perfectly suited for searing leads and chugging rhythms while the well-balanced EMG Retroactive single-coils provide a beautifully clear tonality with a sparkling treble response and defined low-end.

Available in Sky Burst with a matching headcap, ebony fingerboard, and pearloid inlay, Schecter’s Sun Valley Super Shredder III 7- string ups the ante with boutique looks and performance at a price that is accessible for the average working musician. Case sold separately.
