It all started in California back in the early ‘80s as a small blacksmith for hardware components and electric guitar kits. The company soon garnered a good reputation among guitarists. In 1989, production of their first own guitars finally began with long-term success that can still be seen today. SCHECTER guitars stand for sophisticated, modern and high-quality products at fair prices - for musicians by musicians.
Today, SCHECTER is a firmly established guitar brand and the list of artists who swear by SCHECTER guitars is long and impressive, including major current rock bands and artists such as Papa Roach, Avenged Sevenfold, Nick Johnston, Keith Merrow and Seether.
The company moved from its US custom shop into a larger building and SCHECTER invested in state-of-the-art machinery and technology. In doing so, it took a significant step toward fulfilling the increasing global demand for its popular guitar and bass products in the long term.
