Hey guys! I finally got my schecter tempest custom! Shipping took a while from Canada, but it was worth the wait.

For those that don't remember, I bought the guitar off ebay for $400 about 2.5 weeks ago. It came to me modded with PRS USA Tremonti pups and PRS phase 2 locking tuners!

All I can say is what an amazing guitar. It plays very nicely (though I still prefer the feel of the SZ's neck) and came to me in 100% perfect condition!

The first thing I found upon plugging into my recto is the higher output of the tremonti pups. With my JB, when playing at low volumes, I always had to boost the amp with my Keeley SD-1 to get the massive gain out of it. With the tremonti pup, I don't need to anymore, as the high output pushes the amp much more!

My plan is to take the tremonti pups out of the schecter and putting them into my SZ. Then, the JB and stock neck pup will go into the schecter. Then, I hope to use the schecter for a low drop tuning guitar (drop C - drop Bb) with 13's on there, as my SZ easily handles anything from standard to drop Db.

Two quick question:

Will 13's be thick enough for the tuning? Keep in mind that the schecter has a smaller scale (24.75") than most guitars.

How do you think the JB will do in the low tuning? Personally, I think it will very nicely counter the uber trebliness of the pickup. Opinions? Will it turn to mud?

Pics in the next post! My friend and I are going to work at the guitars! I'll keep you all informed!

Where did you order it from, I'm looking for some good canadian online stores.

wow, looking great.

and I doubt the JB will be muddy at all, considering that its very very trebly. It should work pretty nicely.
#7
i have the JB in my Hamer which is all mahogany set neck 24.75" scale and it does great dirty, cleans are ok with both pups on JB and Jazz but no high output bridge bucker sounds good on its own imo.

The Tempests are great looking guitars. I just wish they wouldn't put those bulky headstocks on them.

Loving the white color too

looks awesome

give me your dual recto now


and they kind of do match lol, I see what you mean..something about them looks similar
I'm not racist.

I hate everyone the same.

cool, nice buy!

i suspect the JB should be fine for lower tunings, but that's just from hearsay...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Tempests look so sexy in real pictures.

I demand sound clips! (And real sound clips from an audio interface, not from your digital camera ).

Your bedspread looks like it's straight out of the late 80's/early 90's .

congrats on the new schecter man, i knew you'd love it. and the neck cover/bare bridge looks is really nice, im guessing you got it from Mark Tremonti himself since he's your idol. i might end up doing that with my schecter since im mainly use the bridge pup. replace it with a the Alnico II Pro i want but with out the cover. and for your sting guage question, 13's or 14's will do fine, just depends on your preference of tention.
