Schecter Japan RJ-1-24-VTR See Thru Green & New Hard Case
£799.00 + shipping
I love Japanese made Schecter guitars. I've probably imported around half a dozen now and all have been superb. Like many of the guitars I import, (Edwards, Bacchus, FGN, Burny etc) they're not seen much outside Japan which, I think makes them all the more special. Don't get me wrong, I love Fenders, Yamahas, Epiphones etc too but it's great to see/play something just a little bit different & it's generally accepted that the Japanese craftsmen with their skill, attention to detail and build quality are second to none.
In it's design, the RJ-1-24 reminds me of the Ibanez Roadstar, PRS & in it's body shape, a Stratocaster but with a set neck. It's a beauty to look at, is nicely balanced, not too heavy at 3.96kg. It has a slightly thicker, but very playable neck and a pair of Schecter's own "Super Rock J" humbuckers, both with coil splitting which sound great.
This particular guitar is in fantastic condition and I can't find any flaws on the guitar other than some light playing marks. The stickers are still on the pickups as well as the film on the back panel. It plays superbly well & is highly recommended.
MODEL SCHECTER RJ-1-24-VTR
BODY Laminated Flame Maple Top, Maple Top & Mahogany Back (Three-layer structure)
SCHECTER ORIGINAL ARCH TOP
An arch top that reproduces the structure and design of the high-end model "REXY". The unique arched processing that combines sharpness and roundness not only creates a sense of luxury, but also considers the fit, which is a commitment unique to SCHECTER.
SCHECTER ORIGINAL HEADSTOCK
Depending on the head angle, tone, tuning stability, etc. may change. SCHECTER has set the angle of the head to obtain not only tone but also richer sustain. It reduces the pressure on the nut and enables more stable tuning.
FINGERBOARD: Pau Ferro
FRETS: 24 Frets
TUNING PEG Gotoh SG360-01 MG-T
Gotoh SG-360-01 MG-T lock peg is used for the peg.
Even flashy arming minimizes tuning errors. In addition, since it is possible to change strings smoothly with a simple operation, maintenance and setting can be done quickly.
SCALE: 25 1/2"
JOINT: Set-Neck Ultra Access
SCHECTER ORIGINAL Set-neck
A set neck that makes use of SCHECTER's unique know-how, which has mainly been policy for bolt-on type guitars. The ULTRA ACCESS 4 BOLT structure, which was developed to improve playability in high positions, is adopted for the set neck. We have further improved and developed our own heel cut.
PICKUPS SCHECTER SUPER ROCK J (F&R)
Made in SCHECTER JAPAN, it features a wide range and a sharp rise with an edge. It responds sensitively to delicate picking nuances, and can express more expressive sounds.
BRIDGE: Wilkinson Tremolo WVP2SB-CR (Black knob)
The tremolo system is equipped with Wilkinson WVP2SB. The 2-point support system reduces resistance and enables stable and smooth arming.
CONTROL: Volume / Tone (Coil Split SW) / Toggle SW
Coil Split Switch
It is possible to coil tap regardless of single or humbucker. Produces not only high-power sound but also various sound variations.
COLOUR: See Thru Green
New Thomann/Gear4music hard case supplied with guitar
As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £50 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that I won't ship a guitar in a gigbag.
If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.
Or, you can buy quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.
I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.
Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
