Overview

Striking looks and active electronics.

Featuring eye-popping looks and premium build-quality, the Riot-4 from Schecter Guitar Research is tailor-made to the demands of today’s modern bassist.

This instrument begins with a 5-piece maple/walnut laminate bolt-on neck, reinforced with carbon-fiber rods and topped with a 34” scale ebony fingerboard equipped with 24 narrow-jumbo frets, which is then matched to a light- weight swamp ash body with an eye-popping poplar burl top.

Afterwards it is armed with a thunderous EMG electronics package, including a 35JCSX in the bridge, a 35PCSX in the neck, and an EMG B-30 3-Band EQ, all operating off an 18v power supply for sky-high headroom.

Finally, Schecter die-cast tuning machines, a Graph Tech nut, and a Schecter Custom Bass String-Thru bridge round out the hardware package to ensure massive tone with maximum tuning stability.

Regardless which you choose between the available Satin Inferno Burst and Satin Aurora Burst finishes, both with contrasting Rusty Grey back and sides, with the Riot-4 in hand you’ll be sure to incite a reaction at your next show. Case sold separately.
