The S-1 Custom electric guitar utilizes the potent tonewood combination of mahogany body, 3-piece mahogany neck, and ebony fingerboard provide a resonance platform for versatile Seymour Duncan Custom Custom SH-11 and ’59 SH-1N humbuckers. Schecter locking tuners and a TonePros Tune-o-matic-style bridge/stopbar tailpiece keep your intonation tight and true.
3-piece mahogany neck
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability, 3-piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.
Ebony has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of maple, but with more brittle grains, oilier pores, and a stronger fundamental tone than maple. It has a tremendous amount of percussive overtones in the pick attack, that mute out shortly thereafter to foster great, long, sustain.
Seymour Duncan Custom Custom SH-11/’59 SH-1N humbuckers
Bridge: The Custom Custom is the SH-5 Duncan Custom humbucker with an Alnico II magnet for warm and smooth highs, more midrange, and a spongier bottom end than the SH-5. It’s a good choice for players who need a traditional vintage tone with increased output. Neck: Late-’50s, vintage-correct, humbucker sound. Warm and crystalline clean tones. Full and bright distorted tones. Smooth sustain. Classic appointments include plain enamel wire, long legged bottom plate.
Schecter locking tuners with pearl buttons
Schecter locking tuners feature a locking screw pin to lock the string into place for greater tuning stability. Details include a 19:1 gear ratio allowing for precise fine tuning adjustments, removable Pearloid Buttons, threaded peghead bushing, and a 10mm diameter peg hole.
