Exhilarating metal sound
Extreme power and quality in a pickup system that can do it all. Schecter have loaded the V-1 Apocalypse with a set of fantastic Apocalypse-VI pickups. These will give you unlimited possibilities in your music. They perform extremely well at high output levels, eliminating hum and interference, and making sure every note bursts with clarity and definition. Their high volume output will fill venues of any size, and the sharp, booming tones they're capable of delivering can give you explosive metal sound for the studio, too. A hugely versatile electronic system.
Make every note sing. Schecter have ensured the Apocalypse's status as the ultimate metal guitar by giving it the ability to make every note last. It's fitted with a TonePros T3BT TOM String-Thru Bridge. This type of bridge system optimises a guitar's sustain, allowing each note in your solos to ring with clarity and definition. They'll be pitch perfect, too. The bridge also helps keep your guitar in-tune for longer. Every solo will sound clear and flawless.
Truly distinctive. This is an instrument that'll always make you stand out in a crowd. The V-1 Apocalypse is undeniably cool. A V-shaped body affords the guitar a classic, hard rock edge. An impressive red finish is offset with unique Roman numeral fingerboard inlays. Glow in the dark side markers add a further touch of individuality. They're functional, too. You'll be able to see what you're doing on even the most dimly lit stages.
Never limit your creativity
Embrace every inch of the fretboard. The Schecter Apocalypse gives you two full octaves thanks to its 24 X-jumbo stainless steel frets. You can play with total freedom. The 24 frets give you more room to explore your instrument and create exhilarating, completely unique music. Liberate your sound.
Made for the road
A guitar that's crying out to be taken on tour. Schecter have crafted the ultimate live heavy metal instrument with the V-1 Apocalypse. Its powerful sound and immense playability make it a complete package. But it's no use having an instrument that sounds and plays brilliantly if it's not tough enough to withstand life on the road.
That's not something you need to worry about with the Apocalypse. Schecter have ensured that it's extremely strong and durable. Carbon fibre reinforcement rods throughout the guitar's neck make it more hard-wearing and less susceptible to damage such as bending, snapping, or warping in hot climates. You can be certain that it'll survive even the most demanding touring schedule.
Shred faster than ever before
Blistering speed. There's nothing holding you back with the Schecter Apocalypse. That's because it's been fitted with an ultra-thin maple and padauk multi-ply neck to give you an exhilarating, pacey playing action. The thin shape means you can move up and down the neck rapidly and with ease, and the wood's slick quality makes the playability incredibly smooth. Channel the legends of metal, and shred and solo with tremendous pace.
Say goodbye to hand cramp. The Apocalypse's "C"-shaped neck fits comfortably into the palm of your frethand. This means that your hand will always feel in a natural position at every point up and down the guitar's neck. You won't suffer from soreness or strain, meaning you can play on for hours and hours.
