    Schecter Tempest Custom Electric Guitar Product Description

    With a carved top, striking appearance and tone to back it up, the Tempest Custom is built for players who desire an instrument that's a little unconventional. This is a set-neck guitar with a bound mahogany/maple body and a 'tune-o-matic' bridge. Its neck is maple with a 22-fret, bound rosewood fingerboard. The inlays are split-crowns and the frets are medium in size. Other features include Grover tuners and gold hardware on the black model and chrome hardware on the sunburst.

    Schecter locking w/ Pearl Buttons

    Schecter locking tuners w/pearl button 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 10 mm diameter peg hole.

    Finger Board - Ebony

    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

    Pickups - Seymour Duncan Custom Custom SH-11/'59 SH-1N

    Bridge: The 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.

    3-pc Mahogany Neck

    Made with three pieces of mahogany for extra stability. Three piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the three piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

    TonePros TOM System

    TonePros components complete your instrument! Your bridge and tailpiece will be locked down and will not move or "wiggle" at all. With this design, even play or movement in the threads is reduced so that when you adjust your action and intonation, it is set and solid. Which improves your sustain and tonal qualities, makes harmonics "jump" out of your guitar, and more stable tuning.
