In 2020, Schecter has an array of new Lefty models to suit any taste and musical style, including an array of new lefty signature models, as well as the introduction of two new Schecter lines of lefty axes -- the Banshee GT and the Silver Mountain models.
Also, several of the Red Reign Apocalypse models that were introduced as right handed models in 2019 will be available in new left handed editions in 2020, for any southpaw looking for the perfect metal axe to wait out the apocalypse with!
As always, Schecter is delivering classic designs with premium appointments and next level craftsmanship, resulting in beautiful guitars that deliver an array of tones suited to all kinds of musical styles, from the progressive instrumental music of Nick Johnston and Miles Dmitri Baker, to the crushing metal tones of Keith Merrow. Wherever your tastes lie on that continuum, Schecter is sure to have a lefty model suited to your needs!
With the success of the Nick Johnston Signature guitars in 2019, Schecter has come out with a new Diamond Series Nick Johnson Traditional model. The new Nick Johnston Diamond Series model delivers the same classic styling and silky playability, and was designed to provide players with more tonal options. Featuring a Schecter Diamond ‘78 humbucker pickup in the bridge position, and push/pull pots for coil splitting, this new Nick Johnston Diamond Series guitar gives you all of traditional single coil sound options you’d ever want, with a heavier, beefier sound from that humbucker when you need it, making it a reasonably priced dream guitar for metal and progressive instrumental players.
Nick Johnston Signature HSS represent everything that Schecter is all about - new and innovative takes on classic designs that give players the most sonic options possible.

Miles Dimitri Baker is one of progressive metal’s most impressive lefties and his new lefty signature model delivers all of the killer tone and silky playability that you would expect from a Sun Valley Super Shredder model with premium appointments befitting a top flight performing artist.
Featuring a highly resonant Swamp Ash body with a carbon fiber reinforced 3-piece Maple neck with super comfortable thin-c neck profile perfect for shredding and highly technical progressive metal playing. This lefty Signature Super Shredder model gets its lively tone from a set of Seymour Duncan pickups, while a Floyd Rose 1500 locking tremolo system delivers all of sonic madness you can manage while maintaining stable tuning and intonation.

The new Keith Merrow signature guitar, the KM-6 Mk-III Hybrid LH Snowblind, is a gorgeous new addition to the Keith Merrow line of signature Schecter guitars. The Keith Merrow Hybrid guitars deliver the crushing tone and easy playability of the Schecter Artist model at a more affordable price point.
The KM-6 MK-III Hybrid comes in an eye-catching Snowblind white finish, with a Maple neck and fingerboard, the first in the Keith Merrow line to feature a Maple board. The KM-6 MKIII’s versatile tone comes from a set of Fishman Fluence Keith Merrow humbucker pickups, which deliver incredible levels of gain with a variety of voices, improving overall clarity and sonic versatility.
Premium hardware appointments such as a Hipshot hardtail bridge with an Ernie Ball compensated nut and Schecter locking tuners ensure that this lefty Keith Merrow signature model delivers rock solid intonation and tuning stability no matter how far you push your playing.
The new Snowblind Keith Merrow also comes in a 7-string version, for those lefties that like to chug in the lower frequencies:
Schecter Banshee series guitars are built for speed and sonic performance, and the new Banshee GT FR is no different! With an ultra-thin, 3-piece maple neck with carbon fiber reinforcement rods, an ebony fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets, the Banshee GT-FR showcases effortless playability and with its ultra-lightweight Mahogany body is sure to reduce fatigue during long sets.
The lefty Banshee GT-FR is loaded with EMG 60 and EMG 81 active pickups that provide a versatile array of high octane tones that you can use for almost every genre. Schecter’s exclusive Floyd Rose Special Hot Rod locking tremolo system only adds to the expressiveness of this impressive axe, while the Floyd’s double locking design will ensure you stay in tune no matter how much you use your trem.
If you’re looking for a shred axe with a tone so crushing it will bring about the end of days, Schecter’s Apocalypse lefties have just what you’re looking for. Available in an incredible, dazzling Red Reign finish, the Apocalypse V-1 and Solo II models take classic designs to an entirely new level with a host of premium appointments that give these Apocalypse models a distinctively crushing tone and buttery playability.
