Schecter Johnny Christ-5 Bass Satin Black


This bass is the result of a partnership between Avenged Sevenfold bassist, Johnny Christ, and Schecter Guitars. With its sleek black aesthetic with bone crosses and Deathbat inlays, the look of this bass matches the dark, aggressive style of Avenged Sevenfold, and is capable of producing some deep, powerful bass tones.

This bass looks amazing with its satin black finish complemented by the satin chrome hardware. An ash body is complemented with a maple neck to get a warm and resonant tone with enough snap and high end to give it an edge. The ebony fretboard is adorned with silver bone cross inlays with an Avenged Sevenfold Deathbat marking the 12th Fret. This bass is a 5-string model which adds a lower string (usually tuned to B) for even lower, thundering bass tones. 

This bass features an EMG P5 split-coil pickup in the middle position and EMG LJ single-coil in the bridge position. 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 EMG pickups in this bass use ceramic magnets which are known for providing a brighter tone with better note definition which means this bass will sound great with overdrive or distortion.
