All that I do know (and you probably knew this already) is that Schecter is a US manufacturer, but those cost a lot. The designs are (were?) also made in the Czech Republic. Cheaper, but not totally 'budget' orientated. Then, they allowed OLP ("Officially Licensed Product" - best known for Musicman copies) to make some.

I'm not sure if it's immediately obvious to tell a Cz from a US guitar. Judging by the price, I'd guess you have a Czech model. These are well-regarded from what I've read. Sorry, I don't know about the serial #s, but I hope some of this helps if you go Googling.

:oops: :oops: :oops: All of the above is complete poop. I was confusing "Shecter" with "Spector". Apols to Stuart Spector (and, of course, the thread-originator), all that stuff about the Czech Republic refers to Spector Europe products.

Shecter do have a website (I checked - something I should've done last night) which is and I'm sure I saw the Elite listed amongst the many when clicking on "guitars". IIRC, their previously designed site made it quite clear that Shecter was a US company, but the instruments were made in Korea.

Of course, I could be confusing them with someone else :lol: . Next post: "How 1BL spunked £5000 on a 1995 Leo Paul just like Jimi Plague's" :roll:
