A bass that was born to raise hell from Schecter.
Schecter's Hellraiser Extreme-5 left-handed 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-5 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-5 are both single and dual-coil EMG 40TW 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 40CS. 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-5 Left-Handed Electric Bass Guitar:
There isn't much selection in the bass market for left handed players. Look no further! Excellent bass for METAL but is very versatile and you can achieve many different sounds. The Hellraiser does not just fade into the background; it stands strong with the rest of the music and never gets lost in the mix no matter highs or lows. The Hellraiser doesn't require EQ and can sound great in the mix with just a little compression. BUY THIS BASS TODAY! I promise you WON'T be disappointed!
