Schecter PETE TOWNSHEND for sale

Rare Electric Guitar


This is a Schecter guitar owned and played by Pete Townshend onstage during the 1979 to 1982 period. Around the middle to the end of the 1979 tour Pete switched over to the Schecter guitars.

Originally issued with no name, later named the “Saturn,” and subsequently renamed the “PT.” Later versions are of considerably different design than the original issue. Not endorsed by Pete.

Cream-bound Alder body.
25½″ scale bolt-on rock maple neck with either maple or rosewood fingerboard, 22 extra-jumbo frets, 16″ radius and Schecter’s 6-in-line headstock.
Two Schecter ‘SuperRock’ tapped humbuckers pickups with master volume and tone/tap controls.
Sperzel locking tuners and choice of hardware color.
Available in Gloss Black and Vintage Gold top.

At first, Schecter was a small custom order shop and their guitars were not widely available to the general public. They began building guitars for Pete as Giffin was no longer available to do so. The later models, such as the Gold model with no pickguard, were built by Schecter. As Schecter’s guitars became more widely known due to their use by others artists (such as Mark Knopfler and Yngwie Malmsteen), Schecter got into production guitar manufacturing (around 1984). Production was very limited and not widely available but you could find shops that did carry them or could get them.
