In 1979, Schecter offered, for the first time, its own fully assembled electric guitars.These guitars were custom shop models based on Fender designs.
All guitars have the "lawsuit" peg heads (two small marks on back of headstocks).
Schecter was still using Stratocaster and Telecaster headstocks, which Fender had allowed when they were a parts company.
It appears this lawsuit may have essentially led to their closing in late 1986 to early 1987.
The investors moved the company to Dallas, Texas, where they produced above-par quality guitars using both imported parts and Schecter parts under the Schecter name for less than five years.
At the 1984 winter NAMM show, Schecter introduced twelve new guitars and basses, all based on Fender designs.
The most popular of these guitars was a Telecaster-style guitar similar to those that Pete Townshend played.
