Powerful sound and graceful aesthetics all in one.
The Baron-H Vintage electric bass guitar is Schecter's perfect combination of classic elegant looks and awesome modern technology. The Semi-Hollow chambered Baron body adds an ample amount of resonance giving it a fuller tone and better acoustic/natural tone, not to mention a lighter weight as well. The Grover vintage tuners offer up precision and durability with classic styling. The die cast housing is a sturdy foundation for maintaining center lines of the worm and gear. A fixed bearing surface in the housing creates a smooth turning surface for easy tuning. The safety string post and ‘elephant ear' button provide utility and a vintage look.
The Baron-H Vintage's rosewood fretboard comes standard for a reason. Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact. The sound is fundamentally richer than maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores. The maple neck is built to last. Maple has a uniform grain, it's strong and stable, and it has less reaction from environmental changes than other hardwoods. Its tone is highly reflective, and focuses more energy onto the body wood. Maple transfers a bright tone to the body, which complements the warm tones of the mahogany body.
The hum-cancelling Seymour Duncan SMB-4D pickup offers a balanced, highly musical tone contour with a richly articulated bottom, lots of midrange, and biting treble. It's got a nice, mild "bark" without being overly brash, and it's not at all harsh in the mid-range. The low end is full and strong without being mushy or foggy.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Baron-H Vintage Electric Bass Guitar:
Just recieved my Schecter Baron H Vintage bass today. I've had to wait for it for almost a month. THAT"S BAD. Delivery date kept being put further and further back. To add to the gloom, on th 22nd of this month I saw delivery date go out a little over TWO months away.Problem was I got a really great deal on this bass with a huge labor day discount so wasn't going to cancel and loose out on that size discount. So just waited and waited and waited and...... But praise the LORD it came in today.Took it back and hooked everything up, found it was tuned a little low so set the strings, set the amp where I normally play and started hitting strings and jumped back and out of my skin. The Seymour-Duncan pickups are amazing. In our practice room, I have an Acoustic Brand bass amp and I kept the setting on approx. 2 O.D. on 3 and damper pad off to keep from drowning out guitar, keyboard, and drums. Had to turn vol. down to 1, and put damper pad on to muffle the sound, boy those pick-ups are strong. It came with Ernie Ball strings and I never played any E.B. strings bass or elec. and boy was I impressed so much nicer on the fingertips. Sorry Fender, never going back to your strings again.The Wilkinson bridge was pre-set from the factory and I didn't have to touch it and I'm usually VERY particular about my bridge settings (elect. or bass). No fret buzz, no hard shoveing on strings, just great setup. Always been a Fender Tele nut and the top body cut out with the straight knob guard just kinda reminded me of a Tele a little bit. Never played a hollow body or even a semi-hollow body so was a little apprehensive about buying w.o. seeing/feeling/hearing it but the sound is great. The only thing I'm not happy about is, boy I'm glad it's a semi-hollow body to make it lighter cause man is this thing heavy but I guess if you want all the good hardware, it's gonna weigh a little more. The gears on the Grover Vintage tuners are huge so when you go to tune strings, a little bump goes a long way in tuning up or down. Not a bad thing, just something to get used to. Sad to say, it put my almost but not quite equally priced Yamaha to shame. I used to play professionally and tour but now only a christian church player but there's 2 other bass players that go to my church and can't wait to show the Schecter off. If you can stand the wait for it and don't mind the little extra weight on your shoulder then you'll be greatly surprised. Worth way more than I paid for it. Was also impressed when I went to unbox it. I had a box in a box in a box. Literally... guess they didn't want it getting damaged. Thanks M F
