Schecter Apocalypse Made for Metal

Playability Enhancing Design

Schecter have opted for stainless steel frets to enhance the playability of the C-1 Apocalypse. Stainless steel frets provide a significantly improved, and smoother playing experience and compared to regular frets they’re nigh on indestructible – no matter how hard you play it’ll be a long, long time before you begin to see any wear in these frets.

The body of the C-1 Apocalypse is made of lightweight Swamp Ash wood so it is comfortable to play and will allow you to play for longer before any discomfort sets in.

The neck is Maple and Bubinga multi-play and has been fortified with carbon fibre reinforcement rods so it is extremely stable and secure.

Schechter’s famed ‘Ultra Access’ construction also makes an appearance with the set neck being pocketed deep into the guitar and a small, slim heel with an extremely smooth finish.

This, combined with the extra-deep cutaway into the body means the reaching and playing the higher frets is extremely easy.

The compound radius of the neck means it is extremely comfortable to play while allowing for extreme string bending and X-Jumbo frets makes for really easy playing, perfect for performing virtuosic solos.

Heavy Duty Hardware

The nut Schecter have selected for the Apocalypse series C-1 is a Graph Tech XL Black TUSQ nut. TUSQ is precision engineered under high heat and pressure to enhance the frequencies that remain in the guitar strings, resulting in fantastic sustain.

Schecter locking tuners make it easy and quick to precisely tune your guitar and hold the tuning secure and stable. A Hipshot Hardtail bridge has been installed to deliver superior tone and durability.

Schecter Apocalypse Pickups

In both the bridge and neck positions, Schecter have equipped the C-1 Apocalypse with Schecter USA Apocalypse-VI pickups.

The Apocalypse-VI has a unique tri-field design combining Alnico V with dual flanking Ceramic-8s which yield an awesome amount of power across entire sonic range of the guitar. They have the ability to get extremely loud while retaining the clarity and definition of your playing.

Made in the Schecter Custom Shop in California, USA, these pickups are hand wound and constructed with high grade materials and are of a superb build quality.

Two volume controls, a Push-Pull tone control and a three-way pickup selector switch allow you full control over your sound.
