See All Schecter Guitar Research 4 String Electric Bass

A bass that was born to raise hell from Schecter.

Schecter's Hellraiser Extreme-4 electric bass guitar is a premium instrument made with top notch woods and electronics. This bass is truly a work of artistic craftsmanship.

The Hellraiser Extreme-4 has a multi-laminate maple and walnut neck. It's made from 3 pieces of maple and 2 center strips of walnut. This well balanced combination of select wood takes the bright tones of maple and adds a dark tone from the walnut strips. It's often used for Thru neck construction, giving the acoustic tone of the instrument a perfect string vibration transfer to the body. 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.

Inside the Hellraiser Extreme-4 are both single and dual-coil EMG 35TW pickups, each with its own output. The single-coil mode is a new version of the J pickup built in the CS (ceramic and steel). The dual-coil mode is the popular CS dual-coil consisting of two coils opposite one another creating a pickup similar to model 35CS. A push/pull volume pot allows you to change from the clarity of a single-coil to the fatness of a dual-coil.

Grover Bass tuners top off this bad boy. The Grover ˜MINI" is lightweight, compact and durable for modern electric basses. Gear ratio is 20:1. Housing is specially machined to achieve the precise tolerance that prevents slippage and allows fine tuning. Sealed gear box has permanent lubrication that makes the MINI friction-free for life.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Extreme-4 Electric Bass Guitar:

The Schecter Hellraiser Extreme 4 is a very well made bass that is extraordinarily well appointed. The hardware and design- pickups, materials, fingerboard and fretwork, neck and string through body- is all excellent. This is one of the best handling, and fastest, basses I ever touched, and I've been playing multi-style for 40 years. However, there is something about the preamp (EMG) that kept me from getting the tone I was looking for. After a few days of wrestling with the settings I had to concede (with great disappointment) that this beauty was not for me. It was boomy and unbalanced (sonically, the body physically balances quite well) . The response was better with a pick than fingerstyle. The split coil EMGs were quite good and one couild speculate that the problem lies with the preamp, which is somewhat hot (18v) with a fixed midrange frequency. I found the tone shaping to be troublesome and inconsistent. With that, if the tone signature matches one's desires, that player will be mighty happy; I require greater flexibility and balance. While the source of my issue could possibly be the string set, a good system should be able to still produce a balanced tone. Mine was returned.
