The embodiment of attitude and style from The Cure's seminal bassist, Simon Gallup.
Schecter and Simon Gallup have teamed up to bring you the Simon Gallup Ultra bass. When you think about late '70s/early '80s punk and new wave a few bands come to mind. At the forefront of that movement was The Cure with influential albums like Three Imaginary Boys, Seventeen Seconds, Faith and Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, not to mention a list of #1s as long as your arm. And who was holding down the low end from 1979-1982 and 1985 to the present? Simon Gallup. With custom artwork including a giant "1979" across the body celebrating the year Simon joined, the Simon Gallup Ultra bass is loaded with good looks and the right components for good licks too.
Grover ‘MINI” bass tuners in the Simon Gallup Ultra bass are lightweight, compact and durable for modern electric basses. The gear ratio is 20:1. Their 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.
Rosewood is naturally oily, and works well for any surface that sees frequent human contact which is precisely why it is the most common wood used for fingerboards. The sound is richer in fundamental than Maple because the stray overtones are absorbed into the oily pores.
The EMG TBHZ custom passive soapbar is a passive pickup, custom made exclusively for Schecter's Ultra Bass, designed to fairly reproduce the sought after growl of the popular '70s era bass soapbar.
The multi-laminate maple & walnut neck 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. Often used for Thru neck construction giving the acoustic tone of the instrument a perfect string vibration transfer to the body.
