Schecter release the Sun Valley series – a brand new line of Super Shredders inspired by the 1980’s instruments but brought forward to the 21st century. There are two models available, Schecter Sun Valley Super Shredder FR and Super Shredder FR S with Sustainiac pickup…

The Sun Valley Super Shredder absolutely nails that distinctive Super-S style guitar that was so popular in the 80s. Features the EMG RetroActive humbucker pickups which are exclusive to this model. The EMG RetroActive is a passive pickup but has the preamps underneath that cutout the mid-range bump that’s associated with muddiness – so you get that nice middle ground between modern active pickups and a powerful clean vintage passive tone. The Sun Valley Super Shredder FR S comes with the Sustainiac system installed which can sustain a note indefinitely. Also features a Hot Rod Floyd Rose which has some of the same features as the Floyd Rose 1500 series but at a much better price.

The Schecter Sun Valley Super Shredder FR has a Thin C shape neck in either a Maple or Rosewood fretboard to suit different players and 24 X-Jumbo frets. Comes in colors such as Satin Black, Gloss White, Sea Foam Green and Lambo Orange which was only previously available on the Schecter Keith Merrow signature models.
