Music Zoo

Schecter Shoot 1 of 1
 
  Since 1994, The Music Zoo has been a destination for musicians around New York City. Our commitment to personalized service, groundbreaking custom instruments, and low prices have made us the first choice for players around the world as well. We stock and ship guitars, amps, basses, and parts and accessories from dozens of major and boutique manufacturers. We know that buying a guitar or amp is a very personal decision. You're in the right place! The Music Zoo's staff is legendary for their hands-on knowledge of gear and will be sure that you are 100% satisfied with your experience. 
 
  We've worked closely with manufacturers such as Schecter to make exciting custom guitars to our own specifications. Nearly everyone on the staff at The Music Zoo is a player, has a band, has a collection, or all of the above. So, we have a lot of ideas about taking instruments farther than what you'll find in a catalog. Fortunately, our close friendship with Schecter allows us to make our dreams a reality. We can help make yours come true, too. Through countless visits to vendor factories around the country, we know just what the manufacturers can do such as Schecter can do and how they do it. In many cases, we know the person who builds the guitars—in Schecter’s case. We tend to get the "good stuff" from a lot of manufacturers because they know we really care about quality.
 
 
 
Q: Here at Schecter, we all have a favorite Schecter Custom Shop model, do you have any one in specific that you're fond of and why?
A: We’ve been fans of Schecter guitars for years. Many of us here remember those original Schecters from the late ‘70s and we remember guys like Mark Knopfler and Pete Townshend playing them and they always seemed like the “ideal” or the go-to guitar for something more. Schecter was one of the founders and originators of the Super Strat movement and, if we have to choose a favorite from Schecter’s Custom Shop, it’s probably the Traditional using exotic wood and the old Schecter single-coil pickups. 
 
Q: Lets get a little technical, you know we create some pretty incredible Masterworks guitars…if you could build your own concept guitar through us, what would it be?
A: We love the traditional Schecter designs, so a Schecter “dream” guitar would be a Strat or Tele type instrument made with gorgeous tonewood that has been specially selected for its musicality.

 

Q: We take pride in not only our guitar building, but also in the relationships we make. Can you think of a time that stands out to you, when someone came in looking for a Schecter Custom shop guitar and they left ecstatic?
A:There have been many times that people walk into the store looking to try out a Schecter Custom Shop guitar that they saw on the Music Zoo website. Also, people have walked in with a different guitar in mind but walked out with a Schecter on account of Schecter Custom’s great playability, looks, and tone.
 
Q: If you know much of our history, you know a big part of it was Schecters' pickups.  Are you looking forward to or excited about any one in specific that we're loading into our USA guitars?
A: We’ve always been big fans of the old Super Rock humbuckers and we’re excited to hear the new Supercharger Mach-6. Of course, we’ve always been fans of the Monster Tone single coils going back in the day. 
 
Q:You guys have been around, how do you see the future of electric guitars headed?
A:Schecter has definitely been on the forefront of creating some bold, forward-thinking new guitars and designs. These are definitely not your dad’s guitars. At the same time, we love how the old models have like the Traditionals are being breathed
with new life. 
 
Q: What's something you would like to say to the family at Schecter and to our players around the world?
A: You’re doing a great job at being retro-minded and forward-thinking while also producing fantastic guitars.
 
Thanks to all the staff at The Music Zoo for your time and support! As always keep rockin!
