Schecter Ultra 3 – a.k.a. “Smurfette”
This Ultra III been my main guitar on stage and in studio since 2013. It looks amazing and plays perfectly, but has taken years of modifications to make it sound perfect as well. Upgrades include all new USA electronic components, Schuyler Dean Straight Six single coil pickups in the neck and middle positions, and a Seymour Duncan SH-14 “Custom 5” humbucker in the bridge. I also removed the Bigsby Vibrato and converted it to a hard-tail string through using a tailpiece from an Ibanez Jet King and through-body ferrules from a Fender Telecaster. Most recently, I swapped the Grover tuners for Hipshot Locking Tuners, simply for the speed of string changes.
