Reviews

This unique bass has been specifically designed by Johnny Christ, continuing a long and very fruitful partnership with the Band Avenged Sevenfold. With a stunning original design the Johnny Christ bass has been loaded with an unusual set of pickups to get a unique and versatile sound.

This bass looks amazing with its satin black finish and contrasting gold hardware throughout. An ash body is complimented 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 gold bone cross inlays with a Avenged Sevenfold Deathbat marking the 12th Fret.

The unique sound of the Johnny Christ bass comes from its pickups. Johnny was looking for a versatile bass that could produce a classic sound, with a guttural clanky distorted growl to it so that he didnt have to swap basses in the middle of a set. Shecter went straight for the EMG MMCS to get a powerful and warm classic tone with a fantastic low end and great clean sound at the bridge. Getting the Growl needed from the neck pickup proved to be a little harder. In an ingenious twist Johnny & Schecter decided to go with an EMG81 pickup at the bridge thats usually used on their high gain electric guitars. It proved a winner and the resulting partnership combines perfectly for a rich and biting sound.
