Sultan

Sun Valley, CA (July 8, 2015) -- Schecter Guitar Research proudly introduces the new Sultan model to Schecter’s USA Custom Shop, Production Series line of instruments. Debuting at the 2015 Summer NAMM Show in Booth 1344, Nashville, TN the Sultan replicates and pays homage to their sought after 80’s era Schecter Dream Machine Custom Shop guitars. Demonstrating flawless quality and attention to detail, the Sultan provides beauty, function and a vast tonal pallet that’s created by utilizing a 3 mini toggle pickup switching system.

The Schecter USA Sultan features: Candy Red Alder body, 4-Bolt Birdseye Maple neck and fingerboard, 21 Jescar Premium German Silver frets, Duel Graphite Neck Reinforcement Rods, Schecter Vintage bridge and Vintage Staggered tuners. The Sultan comes loaded with Schecter’s handmade Monstertone or Sultan pickups and is equipped with an innovative 3 mini toggle pickup switching system providing over 30 savory tonal options (MonsterTone Set toggles: On/Off/Tap, Sultan Set toggles: On/Off/ Phase). Originally viewed as a rewarding enhancement to “The Sultan of Swing’s” signature tone, Schecter’s new Sultan model goes above and beyond the sonic capabilities of the “average” guitar.
