The Schecter Traditional Van Nuys is here presented in a Natural Ash finish with Roasted Maple neck and fretboard. A Schecter Diamond Vintage tremolo bridge allows whammy-bar techniques to be executed with ease, while also keeping intonation in check thanks to individual saddles and locking tuners. Three Schecter USA pickups have been fitted in HSS formation – a SuperRock Vintage in the bridge and two MonsterTones in the middle and neck – for a huge array of tonal options.

SCHECTER TRADITIONAL VAN NUYS IN GLOSS NATURAL ASH
The foundation of this Schecter Traditional Van Nuys is that stunning Ash body, with its distinctive figuring showing through the Gloss Natural finish. Ash is the original tone wood used on the world’s first production electric guitars, but its use has become rarer in recent years due to reduced supply. The body is fitted with a bolt-on Roasted Maple neck with a Thin ‘C’ profile, and topped with a matching 14” radius Roasted Maple fretboard, fitted with 22 X-Jumbo frets. Quick playing and highly stable thanks to the Roasting process, this neck is designed to facilitate today’s technical guitar playing.
Designed to faithfully reproduce the tone of 1980s Schecter humbuckers popularized by The Who, the SuperRock Vintage pickup fitted in the bridge position of the Traditional Van Nuys delivers a musical mix of rich and brilliant tone, with even power across the tonal output. This pickup allows chords to ring with detail, while single notes have stunning definition.
The middle and neck MonsterTone pickups are designed to provide the best expression of Schecter’s original F500T, an innovative design that pioneered single-coil tapping. And not only do you have a vast array of tone at your fingertips that span from warm and chimey to brilliant and spanky, but the middle position is Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity for hum-cancelling properties.
The Diamond Vintage Tremolo system allows the whole range of classic whammy bar techniques, while Schecter locking tuners keep the strings locked down at the other end.
