    Killer looks and sick sound from Schecter.

    Schecter's Blackjack ATX C-5 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.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX C-5 Electric Bass Guitar:

        After losing my '98 Spector NS2000/5 to a thief, I had a very short time to get something before our band's next gig. I found this bass for sale by a private party and immediately lost track of time while playing it on his couch, it felt so good and had such great tone through a pair of headphones. That night, my anticipation to play it "live" at our gig was rewarded many times over - great feel and response, even tone across the strings, gutsy lows and crisp highs. In my experience with various basses, there seems to be a "quality line" below which it is difficult to enjoy playing due to the overall feel of the instrument. The Schecter ATX C5 is most definitely above that line - well above. Try and buy this bass - you won't be disappointed!

            Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX C-5 Electric Bass Guitar:

            I've been playing guitar and bass for more than 40 years and this MAGNIFICENT instrument is definitely in my top 5 basses of all time. The active pre-amp with the Duncan pickups provide an amazing array of tonal possibilities ranging from a "soft caressing Jazz" to a "kick you in the groin, metal beat down".

            If you don't at least audition this instrument, then you need to contact yor mental health provider for an emergency evaluation. It's really that good! I'm strongly considering having mine buried with me.
