Product Description

The Ultra III Electric Guitar features a mahogany body with raised center and sculpted edge, rosewood fingerboard, pearl block inlays, Duncan Designed FG-101 pickups, and a Tune-o-matic-style bridge with Bigsy B-50 vibrato tailpiece.

3-piece mahogany neck
Made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability, 3-piece necks can withstand the test of time. Where standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, the 3-piece neck will stay nice and straight for a lifetime of playability.

Rosewood fingerboard
The most commonly used fretboard wood, rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is richer in fundamental than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

Duncan Designed FG-101 pickups.
Captures the big, brash sound of the great rockabilly hollow-body guitars with a touch of "snarl" thrown in.

Roller TOM wtih Bigsby B-50
Bigsby B-50 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.

Grover tuners
Grover Rotomatics with 18:1 gear ratio. 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.

Mahogany body with raised center 3-piece mahogany neck Rosewood fingerboard 25-1/2" scale 22 extra jumbo frets Pearl block inlays Creme bindings Three Duncan Designed FG101 humbuckers Volume and tone controls 3 mini on/off/coil-split switches Chrome hardware Roller Tune-o-matic-style bridge Bigsby B-50 vibrato tailpiece

Cool guitar, would be cooler if it worked right or if you could return/exchange it.
Volume, Tone, three 3-way switches to turn pickups on/off or split the mini-humbuckers to single coil. Bigsby tremolo, Grover turners, graftech nut, roller bridge, set neck...sweet
Minor finish flaws nothing big, but my biggest concern is whether the pickups and switches are working correctly. In single coil it is super quiet, enough that the amp needs to be turned up. I've tried other guitars with the same amp settings and even with single coils they are louder than even the humbuckers on this guitars. Note that this is for some reason a non-returnable item, so if it doesn't work right "tough luck" call Schecter maybe they will care.
Like I said in the quality, not much of a value at this price. There are much better guitars for less.

.I can imagine guitar geeks sitting around deciding what kind of new guitars to make. The people who came up with this are beautifully crazy. This guitar was risky: retro body, Bigsby, 3 vintage-type pickups that can also do hard rock; high quality wood and electronics. I'll tell you one thing, it works. This guitar is a masterpiece.
It was set up and ready to go out of the box. Smooth playing, great Jazz, Blues and Rock tones. Every detail appears to be perfect. I hated to put it down to go to bed. I have over 30 guitars, from vintage Les Pauls to Strats, and a few Jazz guitars. I also have a Schecter Hellraiser. I love that for hard Rock and Metal, but I was afraid this Ultra would be another guitar like that. It is not, but it does have Schecter quality. You may not like the way a Schecter plays or sounds (if you are wacko), but you CANNOT say a Schecter is not quality. I am very impressed by this guitar and I applaud Schecter. I have never given a guitar a "5" rating, but this guitar is a great value. Well done! Thank you.

.I love this guitar. you can play any style. nice price on a great guitar. Goofy shape & extra effing heavy. but its a beautiful guitar. The one i have is cream & black (older discontinued color). build quality is flawless. i picked mine up a few years ago at a local store. hard to find a cheap alt. hard case for. Great guitar.

.This is an exelent guitar with only a few minor drawbacks. I highly recomend.
I love the pickup selection, and the pickups themselves sound great clean and distorted, however, the single coils are very low output
I got my '08 Ultra III used and I have had no electrical issues with it whatsoever. However, It did pull a strap button, screw and all, out right before I went onstage. It was an easy fix, but this may be because I jump around onstage alot, and since this is a heavy guitar, I blame myself.
This is exelent value for money

.I love this guitar. I bought the blue flavor. Now what can I do to locate a case for it?
Schecter makes some bizarre shaped guitars and sometimes you have to really work
hard to find the specific guitar case for these odd balls. Such is the "case".
Great guitar. Great pickups. Very distinguished looking instrument. Would like to see a double humbucker version.
Schecter Guitar Research Ultra III Electric Guitar Vintage Blue
.Well built guitar. Frets were nicely dressed. No buzzing and set up well. Cheesy plastic Schecter ornament on headstock though and some irregular coloring blemishes on neck binding that could have occurred from careless fret filing. Guitar sounds best in humbucker mode. You do experience a volume drop when using it in single coil mode. I'd recommend switching to 11s for those who use abuse the Bigsby. Guitar has some weight to it. The pups are unique sounding. Good for garage rock and surf but not sure if metal players would dig it. The roller bridge is pretty cool as well. I jammed with my band and I was able to cut through the mix with this guitar. It's a good guitar.

."This thing is a tank." That was my first reaction to picking it up. However, it has a very balanced feel and the weight doesn't seem to get in the way. If anything, it just improves resonance and sustain.
The guitar feels very well constructed and sturdy, and the finish is not easily susceptible to scratches. That being said, it still looks beautiful. Before buying, the pictures I saw online made it look kind of like a toy or something, but in person it looks very classy and cool. I've already gotten numerous compliments upon bringing this thing to band rehearsals and gigs. It stands out. And that's a good thing.
This guitar sounds great. The pickups yield sparkling cleans but also excel in high gain situations. Not to mention, this guitar is extremely versatile. The three three-position sliders provide infinite tonal possibilities. Overall, this is an excellent guitar for any playing style, with great hardware, great construction, and a great look.
