It ain't called a Deluxe for nothin'.
The Schecter C-5 Deluxe electric bass guitar gets the job done and then some. With beautiful finishes available and quality woods and electronics standard, this is the perfect affordable bass for any intermediate player.
The bottom end on these Schecter Diamond Bass and Schecter J pickups matched with the 3-Band Bass/Mid/Treble Active E/Q will even shake the God of Thunder! The 3-Band Active E/Q can be dialed in to satisfy all ranges of tones, and the blend knob will allow you to quickly balance between the Bridge and Neck pickup. Ceramic magnet with epoxy casing for lifetime protection.
The C-5 Deluxe comes with a quality maple neck. Maple has a uniform grain. It's strong, stable and 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 that complements the warm tones of a mahogany body. Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact, which is why it's the most common wood used in fretboards. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-5 Deluxe Electric Bass Guitar:
When this bass first arrived, the fret buzz was quite significant. However, I seriously doubt this was due to any manufacturing defects or poor quality workmanship by Schecter but rather the fact that it was shipped to me during a particularly cold week here in Chicago. After the guitar equilibrated I did a quick, minor adjustment of the truss rod and the problem was immediately solved. I was also pleased to find that it stays in tune for extended periods of time with very little effort. The sound is excellent, and the paint job is gorgeous! The pickups provide a nice variety of tone and are more than adequate for me for a long time to come. Although I'm only a beginner bass player, I have played a standard 6-string guitar for over 40 years and feel confident saying that this bass is an excellent value. I highly recommend it!
