The J-4 is Schecter's take on the classic J-bass, but with a modern twist. Sporting elegant-looking black hardware, US-made Schecter MonsterTone-J pickups and narrow X-jumbo frets for ultimate playability, this is the ultimate contemporary workhorse.

Construction

The Schecter J-4 is constructed from an Alder body, serving as an excellent tonal foundation for the punchy pickups. Balanced and resonant, this popular tonewood is also known for its strong mid-range, allowing notes to really pop in a band mix - whether playing finger-style or with a pick.

Paired with a bolt-on Maple neck, this material guarantees a snappy response and bright top-end. A Thin 'C' neck profile and smooth Rosewood fingerboard provide great playing comfort, while the X-jumbo frets allow for excellent note control and intonation.

Electronics

The J-4 is powered by a pair of potent Schecter USA MonsterTone-J pickups. Incredibly bold and articulate, these pickups will project all of your playing nuances, with clean or overdriven amp settings. If you want to tame these aggressive-sounding pickups though, simply engage the push-pull coil-tap for vintage-style single-coil tones.
