Press Release: Schecter Guitar Research debuts the Chris Poland Signature Solo-6 FR Poltergeist for the 2015 Winter NAMM Show, which will be showcased in Schecter’s upstairs Room 210-D. The Poltergeist features: a Mahogany body, a set 3 pc Set-Neck with Ultra Access, Ebony fingerboard, 24 X-Jumbo Frets, 24.625” scale length, and glow in the dark side dot inlays. It also includes 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. The Chris Poland Signature Solo-6 FR Poltergeist also features Schecter’s own USA Pasadena Plus pick-ups that are hand-made in Schecter’s very own custom shop; which adds a slight upper-mid musical bump with just enough output to drive the front end of your amp. The Pasadena Plus pick-ups are suited for everything from Classic Rock to full blown metal … and it does indeed clean up in an 'Indie' sort of way when split.
