Hello all. As most of you know, I'm a total schecter hater (I don't know why I am intersted in one) but this Ultra III caught my eye in my local shop next to a bunch of crappy schecters like the omen and i forget the other names. Anyway I plan on giving this Ultra III a whirl because it looks really hot. Then again all the other schecters I played I hated so I don't have much faith...

Any owners of the Ultra III on these forums? Any who tried it? What kind of genre would it be particularly good for?

Your input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Interesting guitar, it's a remake of something right? I know I've seen that body style before. I would assume the switches turn the humbuckers on and off. If they are 3 way, it probably coil taps them too.

sweet thanks for the info on the switches. Umm It does look familiar but I think its original. It reminds me of the guitar Jack White uses...an ariline guitar...but It's definately different from what scheter has with this ultra III.

The airline looks like this but as you can see, there are many differences...

It's a pretty awesome guitar.. I'm not a big fan of the common schecters.. but I really like the Ultra III and the Banshee.

ahh, ok, I must have been thinking of a Jaguar or the airline. I think the 3 switches is what caught my attention.

Never played that model before but I have played several c-1s and some of their other guitars and schecters have amazing quality and value

That looks way better than the other schecters i've seen, I'm somewhat of a schecter hater myself, i prefer ibanez or something for metal but this looks pretty damn cool

I don't know why, but that guitar looks similar to a Gibson Firebird to me.

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?
#13
I think it looks really close to the Firebird. It's got the same raised center block going for it. It's a little more shifty looking than the Firebird, but definately just as cool.

its got mini on-off-tap switches, and duncan designed pickups.
i think the bigsby might be a lower end "licensed" bridge too.
my local shop usually has one or two on the wall around $400.

nice looking, i never took it off the wall tho. not my type of guitar, but probably worth the price.

yeah if they are $400 at your shop...they are $600 at mine. yours is a much better deal. but I'm going to give it a go. It looks like an eye catcher and I'm really excited to play it. Would a guitar like that need a pickup change? What would you recommend for alt/indie/calssic rock? Or would the stock Duncan Designed suit me well?

i like duncan designed better than most stock pups. but after market pickups are always better. they should last u a while before ull want to upgrade.
mostly, depends on the rest of ur rig.

i like pearly gates for heavy, classic rock. something like that, might be a good fit here.
