New 2016 Left Handed Schecter Guitars

In addition to the already way above average left-handed range, Schecter has introduced a few more new left handed guitars to the stable for 2016.

There’s some really awesome guitars being introduced this year, but what really catches my eye here is the new MK-II Keith Merrow signature. It’s rare to get a left handed model from Schecter in colors other than black or red, so this model in natural is a real stand-out option. And take a look at the fantastic detail on the headstock.  Love it.
