Best known for his comprehensive and influential work with Van Halen, Michael Anthony (currently playing with Chickenfoot and The Circle) has rocked the bass for nearly fifty years, showcasing his skill, sound, and style in venues of all sizes across the globe.
AMS is excited to carry the new Schecter Michael Anthony Bass, designed and brought to life by the Schecter Custom Shop Research and Development and Anthony himself. Modified from their well-known Model T line to better suit Anthony’s preferences, the Michael Anthony Bass has a solid alder body and a slightly slimmer maple/walnut multi-ply neck for fast action up and down the instrument.
Exciting new Schecter USA MonsterTone P/J pickups bring powerful, focused lows and the WSC bridge and tuners give you incredible stability. The deep cobalt grey finish and crème binding accent the look and put the finishing touches on this incredible bass drawn from one of the most well-known bassists in rock.
Here's what Schecter have to say
