- 3344-SHC (E-1 FR S Special Edition Electric Guitar, Satin Candy Apple Red)
High-performance Guitar with Endless Sustain: Every inch and detail of the Schecter E-1 FR S Special Edition solidbody electric guitar was engineered for aggressive, high-speed playing. The rock ‘n’ roll tonewood standard of mahogany, figured maple, and ebony come together to enrich the instrument with warmth, sustain, and plenty of harmonic detail. The bridge Apocalypse VI humbucker is tailor-made to punch your amp hard, while the neck-position Sustainiac system offers unending sustain with three modes of operation. Finally, a Floyd Rose 1500 series tremolo puts the E-1 FR S Special Edition over the top.
Iconic hard rock construction: The core of the Schecter E-1 FR S Special Edition electric guitar is the mahogany, maple, and ebony set-neck design that has found a home with countless rock and metal guitarists worldwide. The tonewood combination offers a sound that has plenty of warmth and bark, but the maple delivers long sustain and a quick attack. You’ll notice harmonics and transients explode from the ebony fretboard. But Schecter is far from copying an old design. Thanks to its sharp lines and thin “C” neck profile, the E-1 FR S Special Edition still has a look and feel all its own.
Sustainiac humbucker delivers never-ending tone: You just can’t beat the abundant sustain you’ll get out of your Schecter E-1 FR S Special Edition’s Sustainiac humbucker at the neck position. This unique pickup design features a special sustain circuit that’s designed to let notes ring on as long as you wish. Just kick in the sustain circuit, play a note or chord, and let the electromagnetic feedback carry your sound as long as desired. And a 3-way switch lets you choose between fundamental, mix, and harmonic-type sustain.
Aggressive, detailed tone from an Apocalypse VI humbucker: Sonic intensity from the Apocalypse humbucker onboard the E-1 FR S Special Edition. Alnico magnets deliver a fast, aggressive sound with plenty of richness. The alnicos are flanked by ceramic magnets for top-end presence and articulation. You’ll have an explosive tone with plenty of harmonic content, giving you lots of sound-shaping potential when you tweak the tone knobs on your amplifier and pedals.
Floyd Rose 1500 Series tremolo: Schecter loaded this E-1 FR S Special Edition with a Floyd Rose 1500 Series tremolo bridge. A remake of the original Floyd Rose blade tremolo, this incredible bridge lets you grab on, dig in, and never worry about your tuning stability. With the E-1 FR S Special Edition’s Floyd Rose 1500 series trem, you’ll get both the rock-solid reliability and the tight response you need for precision playing, along with expressive vibrato and dive-bombing capability.
