    Product Description

    Schecter basses have always been popular for their unique looks and modern appointments, but the SLS Elite-5 takes this to a whole new level. With a pair of active Fishman Fluence pickups, a neck-thru construction and a gorgeous Antique Fade Burst finish, this bass truly belongs in the 21st Century with its contemporary features and classy aesthetics.


    A Swamp Ash body gives this bass a light feel, perfect for long sets where a comfortable and ergonomic instrument is necessary. Providing a full-bodied sound, this serves as the perfect tonal foundation for the high-output Fishman Fluence pickups, bringing out the best of their qualities. Adorned with a beautiful Flamed Maple top, this bass will get plenty of attention on stage!

    A Thin 'C' neck profile provides further comfort, ensuring brilliant playability. Constructed of a mixture of Maple, Walnut and Padauk tonewoods, you can expect a snappy response with plenty of mid-range attack when playing finger-style or with a pick.

    The SLS Elite-5 neck has a high-end look and feel, especially with its elegant binding and dark Ebony fingerboard. But underneath its looks, Schecter has reinforced the neck with Carbon Fibre rods for extra strength.

    Hardware & Electronics:

    Schecter's Custom Bass String Thru bridge has a solid and reliable feel, with its high-mass design ensuring great sustain and note depth. In conjunction with the high-quality Grover 144 Series tuners and Graph Tech XL Black Tusq nut, tuning stability will also be excellent.

    The most noteworthy feature of this instrument is its dual dose of active Fishman Fluence Soapbar pickups. Delivering crystal clear tones when used with clean amp settings or even overdrive and distortion, these pickups project incredible power and bite.

    Mr Paul Maslem6th Jul 2019

    A bold, thoughtful, practical effort from Schecter in a very competitive market. Good quality, well designed HEAVY hardware. Excellent input jack. Innovative battery compartment. Great Fishman pick-ups and electrics. Not impressed with a cheap carbon graphite nut or the head heel. Considering there is no zero fret a brass or titanium or even a good quality bone nut would be a big improvement. Just one mans opinion.
