Killer looks and sick sound from Schecter.

Schecter's Blackjack ATX C-4 electric bass guitar is a fully loaded beast ready to take on any assignment you give it. The Grover "MINI” tuners are lightweight, compact and durable tuners for modern electric basses with a gear ratio of 20:1. The housing is specially machined to achieve the precise tolerance that prevents slippage and allows fine tuning. Its sealed gear box has permanent lubrication that makes the MINI friction-free for life. The ebony fingerboard has a snappy, crisp attack with the density of Maple, but with more brittle grains, oilier pores, and a stronger fundamental tone than Maple. It has a tremendous amount of percussive overtones in the pick attack, that mute out shortly thereafter to foster great, long sustain.

The ATX C-4's Seymour Duncan Blackouts Bass pickups have more of what you want: cleaner highs, deeper lows, and greater dynamic range than traditional active bass pickups. This high energy, expansive sound is capable of covering all your gigs with ease. The sturdy neck is made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. Standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years, but 3-piece necks can withstand the test of time and stay aligned and intact for a lifetime of playability.

The Seymour Duncan 2-band E/Q (w/selectable treble) 'STC-2S-BO' E/Q enables the player to add or subtract EQ at center frequencies voiced specifically for electric bass. There are two treble frequency centers to choose from. The lower setting is perfect for adding growl and bite. The higher setting provides crystal clear top end to modern-sounding, full-frequency bass tones.

Case sold separately.

    Right out the box I heard a electrical clicking noise whenever I pluck a string especially high notes I almost sent it back but figured I could change strings,adjust the action or something! My mistake! Schecter wont even aknowledge my e-mails!I have NO IDEA why this company came so highly recommended to me.

    Neck issues

    Pros

    • Good Feel

    Cons

    • Fret Buzz

    Best Uses

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX C-4 Electric Bass Guitar:

      Received one and it seemed great for a few days. The strings were a little bit on the high side, but not too bad. Within a few days the neck had back bowed on it's own to the point where the strings were actually touching the frets. I sent it back for an exchange and the same thing happened to the next one they sent me. (not quite as bad). I sent it back for a refund. If the neck wasn't so unpredictable I would have liked the bass.
