Schecter Michael Anthony Bass in Carbon Grey

Description

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 a sleek black and grey aesthetic 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 alder and has a Carbon Grey finish and black pickguard which gives this familiar style of bass, a slick, modern look. 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.

Pickups

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.
