Schecter USA / Super Strat / 1983 / Sunburst Flame Top / Guitar For Sale

1983 SCHECTER STRATOCASTER SUPER STRAT ~FLAME & BOUND~ Super Rare EX+++

VERY highly-flamed maple top in a bursting cherry sunburst finish! The maple neck is adorned with multiple birdseye maple figuring on the front and back! The pickups are all original Schecter and feature a single-single-humbucker configuration. The humbucker is tapped with a push-pull at the tone knob. The guitar is 100% Schecter original and it is in near mint condition! These are getting EXTREMELY RARE and with good reason! They were not a mass-produced line and the will rival any electric solidbody from a player/performance perspective!

Dave Schecter started the company in the early 1970s; he wound up with some financial backing from a company called "International Sales Associates" or "ISA".

In 1977 Shecter was doing well and wound up hiring a young Tom Anderson; Tom did a lot of work with pickup development. At that time Schecter was pretty much a parts company that built small numbers of completed guitars each year; their dealers tended to be shops who had individuals on-staff who could assemble guitars from their parts (places like Valley Arts Music in California and Rudy's Music in NYC - Rudy's builder at the time was another guy cut from the same mold as Schecter and Anderson named John Suhr).

ISA pushed Schecter away from being primarily a parts business that made some completed guitars to being a guitar company that produced some parts. Part of that was setting up a separate entity to produce Schecter guitars in Japan for the Japanese market, and Dave and Tom wound up spending time over there getting this entity set up. Dave got fed up and left early in this process, so the owners decided to move the company from California to Dallas, Texas. Tom didn't want to make the move to Dallas so he left and started his own company which would only make parts from 1985 until sometime in 1988 when he made the decision to no longer sell bodies and necks.

At any rate Schecter stopped supplying parts to those dealers who were doing a good business assembling guitars, so they found other sources (Valley Arts desinged and built their own models, Rudy and John launched the Pensa-Suhr line, etc.) as they focused on just building guitars and selling hardware like pickups, bridges, loaded pickguards, etc. but no more bodies and necks. The company, now without Schecter and Anderson, went bankrupt in 1986 (probably part of this was a cease and desist from Fender to stop using their headstock shapes - Schecter had worked out a license to use the shapes when Schecter was focusing on parts; once they moved to doing finished guitars that ended any deals they might have had).
