What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; added sustain
Flamed maple top Premium wood grain with bright, projecting tone
3-piece maple neck Improved strength and stability; clear tone
Extra Jumbo frets Larger frets for easier bends and improved feel

If you have the need for high octane performance, the C-5 GT will have you at full throttle and pushing all the limits. This low rider features a mahogany body combined with a flamed maple full radius top and is decorated with a "GT" racing stripe that screams "Harder. Faster. Louder."

Hot-rodded with an EMG 40DC in the bridge position and an EMG 40P5 neck pickup, you'll be turning heads with earthshaking tone. The C-5 GT is armed with an ultra-fast 3-piece maple neck, this bass was built for speed and comfort! The ebony fretboard is adorned with offset/reverse Roman Numeral inlays, adding a touch of darkness to this speed machine, and with its beautiful Satin Charcoal Burst finish and flamed maple top, you'll be sure to steal the spotlight.

The neck has been shaped with an ultra-thin "C" profile and the deep insert neck joint construction allows easy access to the upper frets. The 16" radius ebony fingerboard is outfitted with 24 extra-jumbo frets, and the 35" scale neck gives the perfect amount of string tension for lower tunings. This savage beast of a bass leaves the competition in the dust!

With an EMG 40DC in the bridge position and an EMG 40P5 in the neck position, master volume and blend controls, and a 2-Band EMG EQ, the C-5 GT has all kinds of sonic possibilities right at your fingertips. Rounding out the black hardware is a Schecter Custom bass bridge that will stabilize tuning and withstand anything you can dish out.

I like this bass. It looks and plays wonderful. Came out of box with strings loosened laying flat on frets. First thing I tightened up the strings to EADG. I put a new duracell 9 volt battery in it. The one in it was dead. I just replaced the battery again after about a month use. I only play about a half hour 4 or 5 days a week. You will need batteries by your side otherwise if you can handle that , it is a great bass guitar. I took a half star off for the short battery life and setup it needed. Still worth the purchase.
