This is a guitar that needs no introduction: the Schecter Pete Townshend Telecaster. Originally introduced to Pete by his guitar tech Alan Rogan in '78, Pete used this model (then called: the Saturn V) from '79 (Concert for Kampuchea) to '85 (Live Aid). The original is now on display at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
This Townshend Tele is in excellent near mint condition and the body has a stunning surface finish that is as shiny as glass (see photos). As Pete himself has commented back in 1982:
“These Schecter guitars are superbly made and easy to play and they sound glorious…....Don't be fooled by imitations of old guitars, these Schecters are unique!”
Here are the specifications for this fine instrument; COLOR: Black (Schecter calls this color Graphite) with Single Cream Binding, BODY: Alder, NECK: Birdseye Maple neck and fingerboard, U Shape, MACHINE HEADS: Staggered Pole Length Vintage style tuners in black, SCALE LENGTH: 25.5 (648 mm), NO. OF FRETS: 21 Jumbo Frets, NECK and BRIDGE PICKUPS: Kent Armstong Z+ humbuckers neck and bridge, CONTROLS: Master Volume (wired to switch the neck pickup from parallel to series) and Master Tone (wired to split the bridge pickup, which is exactly how Pete has his wired!), BRIDGE: Schecter Tele Bridge with 6 Saddles in black, PICKUP SWITCHING: 3-Position Toggle: Position 1: Bridge Pickup 2. Bridge and Neck Pickup 3. Neck Pickup, HARDWARE: Black, soft case included.
The neck is straight and is made from solid maple and has minimal fretwear. The body has an incredible mirror-like shine. In fact, if you look carefully at the pictures in the GUITAR PICS PAGE, you can see its amazing shine.
The guitar has a full tone and plays like butter. In a single word, this guitar rocks!! And if you are a Pete Townshend fanatic (like we proudly are!), then this guitar is meant for you.
