The ultimate bass for The Cure and Simon Gallup fans! The Schecter Simon Gallup Signature Ultra Spitfire bass is as idiosyncratic as the the man himself, featuring a distinctive offset body shape and a stylish lion/rose graphic.
The Schecter Simon Gallup signature model is formed from a classic combination of tonewoods. With a Mahogany body, you can expect deep and rich-sounding lows that guarantee an authoritative sound onstage. Paired with a Mahogany/Walnut multi-ply neck, this combination of woods ensures excellent stability and strength to keep your tuning rock-solid.
Playability is certainly one of the Ultra Spitfire's strengths too. Boasting a thin 'C' neck profile and an ultra-access heel joint, this bass offers a fast feel and easy upper-fret access respectively.
High-quality EMG pickups give the Ultra Spitfire its powerful and versatile sound. With a pair of passive TBHZ humbuckers, these punchy pickups are able to cover the broad palette of tones that Simon Gallup uses in The Cure's back catalogue.
