Schecter Corsair with Bigsby - Black
As Schecter’s take on the classic semi-hollow body electric guitar, the Corsair with Bigsby is neo-vintage six-string wonder with hard-edge modern features. The intuitive Bigsby B-70 tremolo bridge lets you stylize your riffs however you want by allowing you to shift the pitch up or down, as well as bend the pitch of single notes or entire chords. There’s no better way to add vibrato to you musical expressions. Paired with a Tune-O-Matic bridge with roller saddles, the Corsair stays in tune, even after extreme bends, as the Grover tuners provide stability and backlash elimination.
With a maple semi-hollow body, the Corsair produces crisp sounds and strong percussive overtones. The flat, three-piece mahogany neck and 22-fret ebony fingerboard give you a smooth playscape with low action. With F-shaped holes and Duncan Designed HB-101 humbuckers with a coil-top, you’ll be pleased with the huge tone the Corsair effortlessly turns out. When you order the Corsair, it has the perfect setup right out of the box, so you don’t have to wait before you can play.
Tuners - Grover: ROTOMATICS® WITH 18:1 GEAR RATIO (102-18 SERIES) The original Rotomatic® with an improved higher ratio gearing. The 18:1 ratio provides for finer tuning and greater stability. The finer gears provide smoother tuning and a higher degree of backlash elimination
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 - Duncan Designed HB-101: The HB-101 was patterned after the Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 Model™ humbucker set. It uses an Alnico 5 magnet and winding spec based on the revered 1955 - 1960 P.A.F.
Bridge - Roller TOM w/ Bigsby B-70: Bigsby B-70 TRUE VIBRATO bridge allows musicians to bend the pitch of notes or entire chords with their pick hand for various effects. The pitch can be shifted up and down. Matched with a Tune-O-Matic bridge with Roller saddles keeps the tuning in pitch even in the most extreme vibrato bends.
