So...I went looking for an old Schecter Strat in the H7 stash this evening.













Couldn't find it anywhere.




Eventually, Sod's law dictated that it was somewhere inaccessible... angry




Got there in the end though.







Well worth the wrestling match!

    Did you retrieve the Roses? Not the same since Kraft took over IMO.

    That looks like a md Philips nut right there

    That vibrato system looks unique, not quite Floyd, fender or kahler. Is it stock?


    The Bigsby was the first successful design of what is now called a whammy bar or tremolo arm, although vibrato is the technically correct term for the musical effect it produces. In standard usage, tremolo is a rapid fluctuation of the volume of a note, while vibrato is a fluctuation in pitch. The origin of this nonstandard usage of the term by electric guitarists is attributed to Leo Fender, who also used the term “vibrato” to refer to what is really a tremolo effect.

    If only MDP made roller nuts...

    Re. Vibrato - yes, stock.

    A pair is always better though.
    And think of all the stuff you can put on top of it!

    Yes he has... :-)

    LOVELY Schecter. I'm jealous. Many moons ago, we had similar guitar in the shop I worked at. Although that had a standard Strat trem. I think the roller nut may be non-original though... I've not seen one on a Schecter before. Are they the Tom Anderson designed pickups?

    No ... he's done two :-) OK, strictly speaking only one of them was about his guitars.

    DOH! It would help if I looked at his sig, stupid me.

    Edit: I just can't get the links to load, stupid iPad is shot I think, it just won't load picture heavy sites.

    Tim...the bad news is that I may be trading it for something else later today...sorry!

    Roller nut is definitely non-original.

    That Schecter is sweet so if you're trading it, it must be for something reallysweet.
    Incidentally I remember when those skinny aftermarket roller nuts came out around 90-91, stuck one on my Mexican Strat. Totally f***ed the intonation in the process although I would freely admit (at least all these years later I would) that I suspect it was the installation rather than the product itself that was at fault...

    Again...

    It is a Wilkinson USA WNSS 3C. The string guide is part of the kit.

    Not with me (for a change). :-p


    Uh-oh. Somebody has peaced on one of your guitar cases.

    An admirable collection, but do you actually get to play all of them?

    Something like that should be out on view (not at all practical I know) so you can just pick one up at any time and play it.

    And my missus thinks I’ve got a problem.. =)
     so if you fancy a reissue of a guitar they never made in a colour they never used then it probably isn't too overpriced.
