Product Description

Schecter's upgraded Riot 4 electric bass guitar is both beauty and beast. Featuring eye-popping looks and premium build-quality, the Riot-4 from Schecter Guitar Research is tailor-made to the demands of today’s modern bassist.

This instrument begins with a 5-piece maple/walnut laminate bolt-on neck, reinforced with carbon-fiber rods and topped with a 34” scale ebony fingerboard equipped with 24 narrow-jumbo frets, which is then matched to a light-weight swamp ash body with an eye-popping poplar burl top.

Afterwards it is armed with a thunderous EMG electronics package, including a 35JCSX in the bridge, a 35PCSX in the neck, and an EMG B-30 3-Band EQ, all operating off an 18v power supply for sky-high headroom. Finally, Schecter die-cast tuning machines, a Graph Tech nut, and a Schecter Custom Bass String-Thru bridge round out the hardware package to ensure massive tone with maximum tuning stability.

Regardless which you choose between the available Satin Inferno Burst and Satin Aurora Burst finishes, both with contrasting Rusty Grey back and sides, with the Riot-4 in hand you’ll be sure to incite a reaction at your next show. Optional SGR-Universal Bass moulded case or Pro Bass Bag sold seperately.

Awesome bass
Product Rating

It's cut in Korea, assembled in the USA. Who cares? It's awesome! This is my 3rd bass from Schecter.

Neck-thu body construction is what you want. String-thu is what you want too.

Sound is awesome. Has a nice growl to it. Sustain is nice too from the neck- and string- thru design.

Playing is smooth. Controls are easy to get at and use.

Active pickups. You can dial in just about any tone you want.

Finish on mine is the sunburst. It's a transparent finish and looks fantastic.

I made NO adjustments out of the box. It seems the person who set it up at Schecter knows what I like. The action is low enough where I can do hammer-ons with ease, and high enough where I have minimal string 'click' when I play hard.
