Schecter's Blackjack ATX C-5 electric bass guitar is a fully loaded beast ready to take on any assignment you give it. The Grover "MINI” tuners are lightweight, compact and durable tuners for modern electric basses with a gear ratio of 20:1. The housing is specially machined to achieve the precise tolerance that prevents slippage and allows fine tuning. Its sealed gear box has permanent lubrication that makes the MINI friction-free for life. 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.
The ATX C-4's Seymour Duncan Blackouts Bass pickups have more of what you want: cleaner highs, deeper lows, and greater dynamic range than traditional active bass pickups. This high energy, expansive sound is capable of covering all your gigs with ease. The sturdy neck is made with 3 pieces of mahogany for extra stability. Standard necks may show aging defects from temperature and moisture changes throughout the years but 3-piece necks can withstand the test of time and stay aligned and intact for a lifetime of playability.
The Seymour Duncan 2-band E/Q (w/selectable treble) 'STC-2S-BO' E/Q enables the player to add or subtract EQ at center frequencies voiced specifically for electric bass. There are two treble frequency centers to choose from. The lower setting is perfect for adding growl and bite. The higher setting provides crystal clear top end to modern-sounding, full-frequency bass tones.
Case sold separately.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Blackjack ATX C-5 Electric Bass Guitar:
Shopped around and tried to play as many 5-strings as possible to test the action and pick-ups. I was looking for a mid-priced bass to replace a damaged Ibanez. This Schecter stood out clearly mainly with it's action. It balances speed and sustain nicely. Weight is moderate but the rich tone achieved is justified. I play on a Ampeg BA-115 and the Seymour Duncan pickups are on point with a wide range of tone versatility paired the bass's EQ's, heavy to clean. All in all, it plays great, price is more than reasonable for product supplied and the finish (sunburst) melts loins. Definitely consider and try it out if looking for both quality and mid-priced needs.
