Schecter  History.. how it all started

1. 1. Custom shop days, 1976 - 1983

In 1976, David Schecter opened Schecter Guitar Research, a repair shop in Van Nuys, California. [1] The modest repair shop manufactured replacement guitar necks and bodies, complete pickup assemblies, bridges, pickguards, tuners, knobs, potentiometers, and other miscellaneous guitar parts. Eventually, Schecter Guitar Research offered every part needed to build a complete guitar. It supplied parts to big guitar manufacturers such as Fender and Gibson and to custom repair shops which were building complete guitars out of Schecter parts. [1] By the late 1970s, Schecter offered more than 400 guitar parts, but did not offer any finished instruments. [1]
