Press Release:  Schecter Guitar Research unveils the new Banshee Elite Series for the 2015 Winter NAMM Show. This new line will be showcased in Schecter’s upstairs Room 210-D. The new Banshee Elite Series features: a Swamp Ash body with a Flamed Maple top, 9 piece Maple/Walnut neck with an Ebony fingerboard, 24 X-Jumbo Stainless Steel frets, Mother of Pearl offset/reverse dot inlays with brass circles, and a Neck-Thru construction with Ultra Access for seamless playability and easy access to the higher frets. The Banshee Elite is offered in 6, 7, and 8 string options and also offers the choice of a Hipshot Hardtail Bridge, or the Schecter Exclusive Floyd Rose 1500 Series Bridge which features stainless steel parts, new push-in arm, and knife points that are re-tooled for better tuning and smoother tremolo play. One of the coolest features is that the Banshee Elite comes loaded with Schecter’s own hand-made USA SuperCharger pick-ups with an option of a Sustainiac in the neck position (Sustainiac offered only in 6 and 7 string models). The Banshee Elite is a guitar that truly plays itself, and offers remarkable versatility and tone that players relish.
Ahh…I love the smell of NAMM in the morning. Waking up for Day Three you feel yourself changed, a NAMM-Morphosis of sorts…like a super power. You now walk the vast NAMM halls as if on a hover board, connect with your fellow NAMM goers like a matrix, and forego NAMM maps and apps. After charging up at the NAMM U Breakfast (yes, food during the daylight hours!), you’re ready to go. In essence, you become one with NAMM. Of course, the occupational hazard here is that you grow accustomed to the non-stop excitement.
