The PT Fastback is modeled after the instrument that legendary guitarist Pete Townshend made famous during The Who's early '80s tours. This instrument was, for many guitarists, an introduction to the tonal capabilities, supreme playability, and utterly cool appearance of Schecter guitars. Now the Schecter PT Fastback has returned from the stadiums of 1982 and ready to roll into the century and into your hands.
This alder bodied classic T style design has a 25.5-inch scale maple neck with 22 extra jumbo frets for digging into some serious lead and rhythm work. The creme binding and block inlays really make this instrument stand out with some classy appointments. The pickups are Duncan Designed alnico pickups. In the bridge is FG-101, for some snarling and growling tones, as well as some real jangle and twang when its coil is split through the tone's push/pull pot. The neck pickup is a Duncan Designed HB-102, modeled after the famous Jazz neck pickup, and can also be coil split with its push/pull pot in the tone knob. These pickups and the coil split options give the PT Fastback an astounding array of tones.
If you need a real arsenal of sounds, but can only pick up one guitar, then the PT Fastback is the one for you.
