Hello Just bought the Schecter Ultra III. Good guitar. Not heavy, good balance. It has the Designed by Duncan FG-101 which is their version of the pickups found in Grestch guitars, the FilterTrons I believe(humbucker one). The body and neck is made of mahagony with a rosewood fretboard. Haven't played it a lot, busy, but will give my impressions so far: Played it through my Vox AC15cc. The pickups are able to be split.(Humbucker to single coil). The guitar has a treblely-middy sound to it, not bright like a tele. Not dark, not bright. It has mid-range, not a lot of mid-range(as a Les Paul). Reminds me of a SG sort of. Has good bite and sustain. Will give more updates as I play it more.
