The Schecter Company:

In Van Nuys, California a repair guitar shop opened in 1976 from David Schecter. This guitar shop manufactured guitar parts suchh guitar bodies, guitar necks, knobs, potentionmeters, bridges and many more guitar parts.

At some point, Schecter started out supplying parts to notable guitar manufacturers also to Robert Talbot’s repair shops. In 1970 Schecter Company made 400 guitar parts and more but never offered finished instruments.

The magic year for Schecter was in 1979 that rolled out their assebled electric guitars with high quality parts and ofcourse very expensive models. Also they choosed only twenty retailers across the U.S.

Amazing musicians arround the world used Schecter parts and guitars. Some of them are Shaun Morgan, Mark Knopfler, Ritchie Blackmore, Jinxx, Richard Patrick, Jake Pitts Tommy Victor, Dan Donegan and Robin Zander.



Custom production had reached by 1983 and could no longer meet demand. The same year Texas investors purchaced the Schecter company and moved them to Dallas, Texas. They started to produce quality guitars using Schecter parts and imported parts under the Schecter brand about 4- 5 years.

Twleve new models, basses and guitars introduced by Schecter at the winter NAMN show in 1984. T-Style guitars that produced by Schecter became the most popular because was similar with models that “Pete Townshend” played!

Investors decided to sold the company in 1987 to Hisatake Shibuya. These entrepreneurs from Japan also owned ESP Guitars and the Mucisians Institute in Hollywood. Hisatake Shibuya decided to move again the company back to its base in California to build expensive custom instruments with high end technology.
