Product Description

When Schecter Guitar Research debuted their Apocalypse electric guitar series, bassists demanded a bass with similar high-end specs and aggressive style, and the new C-5 Apocalypse is it! Built to withstand the Apocalypse, a 5-ply Maple/Padauk laminate neck is reinforced with carbon-fiber rods and crowned with an ebony fingerboard bejeweled with 24 stainless steel extra-jumbo frets, whose minimalist Mother-of-Pearl triangle inlays at the 12th and 24th fret and glow-in-the-dark side-dot inlays keep you on track.

The 35 inch scale neck is set into a swamp-ash body utilizing an Ultra-Access neck joint for unfettered access to the entire fretboard. Powering this beast is a pair of Schecter US Custom Shop’s brand-new Apocalypse-5 Bass humbuckers. These earth-shaking, high-transparency passive pickups deliver massive slabs of warm, defined low-end tone with a strong upper-midrange presence and the punch of a meteor-impact, and are appointed with versatile individual series/split/parallel toggle-switches to allow the player to cover nearly any tonal ground.

Grover 144 tuners and a Graph-Tech BlackTusq XL nut provide smooth and stable tuning, while the Schecter Custom-5 Bridge allows for either top-mounting or through-body string mounting, and efficiently couples your strings to the instrument’s body for incredibly deep tones and amazing sustain. An apocalyptic Rusty Grey finish delivers a jaw-dropping look that is both hostile and elegant, and combined with its high-end performance, results in a bass that is sure to please even the most discriminating player. Optional SGR-6B case sold separately.

This thing is a beast! Swamp ash body makes it easy on your back, passive humbuckers that dump out massive bottom end thump, and you don’t ever have to remember to switch out a battery. Also the ability to split the coils gives you even more sound option! Fast, comfortable set neck and the 35in scale length coupled with the string-through body option give that low B a tight, well sustained sound, with plenty of midrange punch. No more muddy low notes. This thing is definitely built for the Apocalypse. Be ready to make heads explode with this bass. Fit, feel, and finish are top notch. The only reason I’m giving this bass 4 out of 5 stars is because one of the pickup height adjustment screws was stripped out so the pickup was sticking to the B string. Not a hard fix by any means. Thanks to AMS for the quick shipping and the pay as you play option is next to none. (My wife and my wallet both thank you)
