    Hello. New to the forum. I am looking for an old Schecter PT. I know pickings are really slim, but I thought I would give it a shot.
    Thanks for having me,
    Chris

    Unfortunately for the OP that's a recent MIK model.

    Chris - I was going to suggest gbase but the only old Schecters from the 1977 to 1987 era are an actual ex-Townshend Tele and an ex-Knopfler Strat. Needless to say they aren't even listing the prices for those guitars.:lol:

    There have been a couple of them change hands on The Gear Page in the past 6 months, so the do occasionally come up for sale but they are really few and far between. You might post a "Want to Buy" ad over there and see what happens. Also I think that there is a Schecter forum - while I'm sure it focuses on the current incarnation of Schecter there should be a spot for the old Van Nuys and Dallas era models.

    Thanks John. I may have found one, but the seller scares the bejesus out of me.

    Send me an email and I will forward a picture of one I am contemplating selling. Thinning the herd... Mine is a Dallas era PT (serial begins with an A). It's hard to find any info on these guitars but it is a great guitar.

    I run into them on E-Bay once in a while. I have what I believe is an early 80's, but it is promised to another.

    Yeah - i would like to check one of them out. I have wanted to since I saw the video for "Eminence Front"

    I have seen exactly 1 show up in my local Craigslist in the last 4 years....
