Schecter Riot 4 Electric Bass

Featuring eye-popping looks and premium build-quality, the new 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.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Schecter products.

"The Number 1 Must Own Bass Under $500"
Sound: I love the EMG HZ's in this bass. I tend to set the blend to the neck pickup more heavily for a full and boomy bottom end. This is just my preference for the style I play but there is plenty of versatility for any style. The sustain is amazing with the neck through design. Feature: Best feature is the active EQ. Again, combined with the pickup blend abaility, it provides versatility for just about any tone quality you could want. Ease of Use: Setup straight from the factory was perfect. Low action but no sacrifice of sustain. Quality: Finish is beautiful. I own the dark cherry. Hardware and electronics are equal to and surpass anything in this price range. Value: Nothing comes close in this price range. Manufacturer Support: I have not needed support but am rating at 10 based on all of the other qualities of this bass and the Schecter reputation. I did speak with Zzounds prior to my order and they were terrific. The Wow Factor: Sexiest instrument I have ever owned. Overall: I will own this bass for many years to come I'm sure. The only reason I will be shopping for another bass is to go to a 5er.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
