Best known for playing the bass in Van Halen during their peak years, Michael Anthony has teamed up with Schecter to design his signature bass. With an exotic aesthetic thanks to the koa top and powerful tones from the Schecter USA MonsterTone pickups, this workhorse bass sounds as good as it looks.
Body and Neck
The body is made from swamp ash, a great choice for basses thanks to its light weight which means less strain on your back. The koa top gives this bass a unique look without being outlandish. The rich golden-brown colour and distinct grain pattern of koa makes for a beautiful yet understated bass.
The neck is a thin "C" profile which is a comfortable shape that doesn't feel cumbersome, allowing you to slide your hand up and down the neck with ease. The 12" radius rosewood fingerboard provides a smooth, natural-feeling playing surface that makes fretting notes a breeze, especially with the X-Jumbo frets.
The bass features Schecter USA MonsterTone pickups, a J-style pickup in the bridge, and a P-style pickup in the neck. A P/J pickup combination is one of the most popular around, and for good reason. The P-style pickup provides a thick, warm, and round sound while the J-style pickup has a tighter, snappier tone that cuts through better. Between the two you can get a wide range of tones to suit a variety of styles. The MonsterTone pickups in this bass use ceramic magnets which are known for providing a brighter tone with better note definition so you get plenty of punch and low-end without the sound getting muddy.
