A truly elite brand, Schecter has been innovating and pushing instrumentation forward for almost 40 years. Their never ending dedication to putting quality, powerful instruments in the hands of musicians of all skill levels and playing styles has helped build them into a name that musicians around the world trust and respect. Schecter is a company with modest beginnings. In 1976, David Schecter opened a repair shop that was initially focused on manufacturing replacement parts for a variety of instruments. Before the end of the decade, however, Schecter began producing fully assembled instruments and the music industry quickly began to take notice.
Schecter bass guitars are played by a veritable who's who of musicians that transcend generations and genres. Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue, Nadja of Coal Chamber, Pando of A Flock of Seagulls, Vince Hornsby of Sevendust, Sean Yseult of Star & Dagger and formerly of White Zombie, Robert Deleo of Stone Temple Pilots, and more all hold down the low end on amazing Schecter bass guitars.
Schecter make bass guitars for everyone from beginners and hobbyists all the way to touring professional musicians, so you're bound to find the instrument here that is right for you. If you're a novice bassist, an option such as the Raiden Special-4 Electric Bass Guitar is definitely worth checking out. This basswood bass is highlighted by its absolutely thunderous tone that packs a serious punch, while being offered at a price point that is ideal for first time players. If you're a more advanced player, why not check out an instrument such as the Stiletto Studio-5 Bass? This five-string will present bassists with a new challenge while keeping the groove in the pocket whenever they hit the stage.
If you're an experienced player looking for a special bass though, you have to take a look at the Hellraiser Extreme-5 Electric Bass Guitar. Crafted from top-notch mahogany with a quilted maple top and a walnut neck, this bass is as much an instrument as it is a work of art; something very distinct for the bass player.
With Schecter, you know you are getting a quality instrument built on the back of years of fine-tuning. They've come a long way from David Schecter's small repair shop 38 years ago and continue to be on the cutting edge in the world of music.
