Schecter C-5 Apocalypse Electric Bass

When Schecter Guitar Research debuted their Apocalypse electric guitar series, bassists demanded a bass with similar high-end specs and aggressive style, and the 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" 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 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.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Schecter products.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds is great! After looking for Pro DJ speakers I came across zZounds on the internet and they financed me with the no credit check money down 4 month payment plan, which really helped me out a lot. They are the greatest to buy audio equipment online. They have low prices that are compatible with other online sites and didn’t charge me interest. I highly recommend them. I will be doing all my online audio purchases with them from here on out." - Customer on November 30, 2018

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
