The J-5 Bass by Schecter Guitar Research boasts exciting updates aimed to deliver a professional-grade instrument at a value-packed price. Upon picking up this bass, the player will immediately notice it is tricked out with a fully-passive electronics package featuring the Schecter Custom Shop USA-Made Monstertone-J pickup set, a couple of Ceramic-8 loaded beasts pumping out shocking power in their default setting and switchable to more vintage-flavored tones via a push-pull tone pot.

For the body and neck, Schecter utilized a 35” scale thin-C maple neck, reinforce it with dual carbon fiber rods and an easy-access truss rod for maximum stability, and pair it with an alder body to create a classic, comfortable combination that feels equally at-home in your arms and in your mix.

It is then outfitted with quality components including a Schecter Diamond Custom bridge that offers thru-body or top-load stringing options, a Graph Tech IvoryTusq nut, and Schecter Vintage Tuners to ensure trouble-free performance so that you can focus on your groove.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I had a Fender american pro jazz 5 bass and had a hard time playing it. I have short fat fingers and my Fender would just wear me out.I found this bass and tried to buy one they had none. Finally zZounds came up with some and I got my hands on it. Cut the strings off and put a set of low tension LaBalla on her the B string is a .118 they are flats and fun to play.With the narrow nut and the thin C she is more like playing a 4 string fast and smooth and sweet and a growl better than the big Fender. Yes I said it Schecter has hit it out of the park on this one. Thank you so much Schecter and zZounds!
