Schecter J5 Electric Bass

The new 2019 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 noticed 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, we utilize 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 outfit 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. Choose between either classic, eye-catching finish of Seafoam Green with gloss maple headstock and fretboard, or Black with matching headstock and rosewood fretboard.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Schecter products.

Overall: 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!

Overall: This looks like a nice bass when you look at the specs but I would like to know who was the genius who decided to install pickups without covers. Pickups are so sensitive to the open environment. Why would anyone decide to do that?That's like shooting yourself in the foot. If you get one of these basses, expect those pups to last for no more than four or five years, if you are lucky.Everything else is perfect on this bass. The playability is excellent and the sound is incredible.
Style of Music: Mostly classic 80s Heavy metal. Some 70s Rock.

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.
