Schecter Hellcat VI 3-Tone in Sunburst Pearl

Description

The Schecter Hellcat VI is a modern reinterpretation of the classic "Bass VI" that retains the original's quirky, vintage styling but makes it their own.

Bass VI-style instruments are truly unique as they fall somewhere in between a bass and a guitar. They're tuned E-to-G like a standard bass, but are a shorter (30") scale with lighter strings. The result is deep bass-y tones on an instrument that'll feel more familiar for guitarists and provide a different tonal palette and approach for bassists.

Sound

The Hellcat is visually reminiscent of the classic design however the similarities stop there. You might not be able to tell just by looking at it, but this guitar actually features three humbucker pickups. These stacked-coil pickups have the classic single-coil look, but provide a much fatter tone. If you want your tone to be thinner with more spank then just activate the slider switches to coil-split the pickups for a single-coil-like tone.

Hardware

Another difference is the use of a TonePros bridge with a stop tailpiece over the traditional vibrato system. Using a fixed bridge, in combination with a Graph Tech XL Tusq nut, means you'll have much greater tuning stability. This instrument isn't a mere homage, it's a surprisingly versatile bass that can take you into new sonic territories that you've never imagined exploring.
