Schecter Guitar Research Unveils the Chris Poland Solo-6 FR Poltergeist

The guitar features USA Pasadena Plus pickups that are handmade in Schecter’s custom shop.

Sun Valley, CA (January 13, 2014) -- Schecter Guitar Research debuts the Chris Poland Signature Solo-6 FR Poltergeist for the 2015 Winter NAMM Show, which will be showcased in Schecter’s upstairs Room 210-D. The Poltergeist features a Mahogany body, a set 3-piece Set-Neck with Ultra Access, Ebony fingerboard, 24 X-Jumbo Frets, 24.625” scale length, and glow in the dark side dot inlays. It also includes the Schecter Exclusive Floyd Rose 1500 Series Bridge which features stainless steel parts, new push-in arm, and knife points that are re-tooled for better tuning and smoother tremolo play. The Chris Poland Signature Solo-6 FR Poltergeist also features Schecter’s own USA Pasadena Plus pick-ups that are hand-made in Schecter’s very own custom shop; which adds a slight upper-mid musical bump with just enough output to drive the front end of your amp. The Pasadena Plus pick-ups are suited for everything from Classic Rock to full blown metal … and it does indeed clean up in an 'Indie' sort of way when split.

MSRP $1,499/Street $1,049

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
