Schecter is the king of bass!

By JB

from Akron, OH

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

I purchased my Schecter this past summer and I will not trade it for anything else. Everyone plays a Fender or a Ernie Ball Musicman for a professional look. Schecter definitely belongs in that same category. I guarantee if you buy a Schecter bass, you WILL NOT be disappointed.

Best Bass I Have Ever Played

By I'm Sold.

from PA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

This bass is amazing. I have never played anything so great. The Highs are snappy and bright and the lows are deep and full. The only problem I have had is that the neck pickup was a little loose. But I fixed that in 5 seconds. The inlays are beautiful and the body is sooo comfortable. I am suprised this bass did not cost $1000+. It is the best bass under $1000. It's great for any style of music.

Ibanez or schecter: what to choose?

By seat17

from parker,co.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

This bass is just as good or better as any 1000 dollar bass. It has looks and sound. the pickups have great lows and awsome highs. the four control knobs make it easy to switch between a low blues sound and a high slap/pop sound. Looks as good as it sounds. works great live or in the studio. forget the ibanez look-a-likes,go schecter!!!

My 1st Schecter

By Joe - " The Red \

from Michigan

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

After reading up a bit on this bass ( C4 ) I picked on up. I am not sure what the guy's review below meant that the action was too high, I actually needed to raise the action on mine because of a little bit of fret buzz while in drop D tuning. The bass has awesome sound and the action is fast. The neck is thin, and being my hands aren't gigantic, it fits me perfect especially after playing a 5 string Tobias. Very good MID-RANGE bass and great price makes this bass a good buy. The Active Pick-Ups Rock.

A Must Buy

By Showdown245

from Undisclosed

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

I got my Schecter lst chirstmas and even though i spent all my money at the time, it was worth it. It stays in tuning forever. And it has 6 bolts attaching the body to the neck, which means its very sturdy. The sound is great and low. And the only difference i know is that mine has gold hardware.

Amazing craftmanship

By Quazi

from Deerfield Beacf, Fl.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

I've been out of Bass playing for a year or two and I decided I needed to play again...I originally got an Epiphone T-bird it was beatiful but it was a copy...So I went to exchange it and saw This baby hanging up and tryed it out and after 5 minutes I knew this was the one..It's a stunning piece of art and it's tonal qualities are superb, I actually hear Alembic like tones from it... It is absolutely awesome!!and the neck is better than my old Dan Armstrong..I would recommend this Bass to any one.

Wow

By Josh

from Anoka, MN

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

This is the best bass I have played. I play it through my Fender Rumble 100 bass amp and it sounds great. I get no feedback unless I turn the treble up all the way on my amp, but this is because of the amp. I have the one with the antique amber finish and the gold hardware looks great. The only problem I had was a screw on the battery compartment was on so tight it stripped, but I got it off so it was no big deal. The 2 band EQ is a bass and tone knob. I like to play with a lot of tone, and with this bass I can get it without any feedback. The active pickups are very nice.

I was expecting better, after reading reviews

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

This guitar is a good bass, but to be honest I was expecting something a little better. The guitar is built well and it looks great, but I thought the action was a little high. The pickups are great if you play rock or metal, but it may not be the right guitar for other styles of music. The tuner machines work smoothly and the guitar stays in tune very well. Overall this is a good bass if you want a rock or metal bass, but if you want to play several types of music I would consider something different.

I went into the store to buy a Fender Jazz...

By Scott

from Maricopa, AZ

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

I had my heart set on getting a Fender Jazz. I played one and thought my mind was made until I decided to play five or six different brands and models, just in case. Well, after plugging this one in I was hooked. The feel, look, and sound were great. Former Fender purist turned Schecter fan.

All I can say is "Awesome!"

By ebaG

from Wisconsin

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

This bass is so cool, it is definately my favorite that i've tried so far- especially for the money. Mine is in Antique amber and it looks beautiful. When I saw it, I knew it was for me. The active pickups make the biggest different. EMGs man! Gold Hardware really looks slick/ Pearl inlays very nice addition. Compared to my old bass this is so smooth and the sound makes you sound like a pro. Definately try one out. Very heavy duty/ rugged. Sweet for any genre. Knobs can really customize the sound from slapping and popping to mellow sounds.Beautiful.

Just as nice as any Premium priced Bass

By Tim

from Tacoma,WA

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

I'm a semi-retired pro that has been playing for 35yrs+. I've played everything. I walked into the store and was trying just about every Bass they had into a rig like mine, I picked this up,looked it over felt nice and played every style on all frets especially the upper register to check for fret buzz and clarity and "Waala" This thing sounds friggin AWESOME! Not only doe's it sound great but play's like butter! fast neck and feel like the Ibanez Basses but sound's Much better. I use this as a main Bass anytime I feel like it,I have over 20 Basses and this is right up their in the top 5! I gave it 4 stars only because it's a bolt on neck not a neck through like my Rick.But it has 6 bolt's not 4 so it is as stable as any neck through, If you can't go neck through then definetly go with as many screw's as you can find and 6 is optimal. This is a great Bass for whaqtever skill level, I wish I'd gotten 1 of these for my first bass! GET IT NOW!!!! You won't regret it!

This is a 500 dollar bass?

By Crazy Lane

from provo, utah

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

I played about 12 basses at Bill Harris one day and didnt find anything that I really liked. The sales guy said that he had a diamond series from schecter that I should try. I said ok. After probably two minutes I realized that I could not afford the bass that I was playing and said, yah that is really nice but I am looking for something a little less expensive. I asked how much it was out of curiosity, and he told me I could have it for 450. I have never looked back. If this bass had a through body bridge it would be absolutely perfect. The only bass that I have played that I liked more was a Peavey Cirrus, and that is more than twice the price. Thanks Schecter, I am a believer.

Never Let Me Down!!!

By Kai

from Santa Barbara, California

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research C-4 4-String Bass Guitar:

This is an incredible bass for an incredible price! Originally I was given a Fender P-Bass starter kit for Christmas, but decided that I didn't like the look or the feel of that brand of bass. So I drove up to good old Guitarcenter Oxnard and looked inside their bass room. I picked the C-4 up right away and just couldn't put it down. It balances so perfectly and the shortened neck length gives this bass incredible playability, and all on top of this bass' incredible design and look. The red body and gold hardware look good on any stage. Everywhere I go I have people walk up to me and ask me "What bass are you playing? It sounds incredible!". For any bass guitarist out there looking for something top-line for a low price, the Schecter C-4 is the perfect choice. The setup I use (which I've found to work perfectly in cooperation with this bass) is: - Schecter C-4 - Schecter Diamond Series Hard case (can get everything but my pedal in this case) - DP Bass strings - 21' Right angle Monster Cable - Planet Waves Strap - Digitech BP-80 Bass Effects Pedal - Jim Dunlop Big Stubby Bass picks - (If I had a Markbass amp, I would put it here, but...) Line 6 Lowdown LD15 Modeling Bass Combo Amp ROCK ON SCHECTER!!!
