The Raiden Special-5 five-string bass guitar from Schecter combines the exotic look of a quilted maple top with the massive tone of Schecter's SuperRock bass pickups. Its bolt-on maple neck uses six bolts to ensure stability, and the rosewood fretboard has 24 X-jumbo frets that ensure superb playability.
Schecter SuperRock bass pickups are essential two jazz pickups in one casing. In two-coil mode the midrange is powerful with a nice punch. When the push-pull tone knob is pulled up, the single coil tone is classic with jazzy lows and highs.

Do Not Buy this bass if you are not looking for a headache. this bass is 35" scale and string thru body (good luck finding stings that fit). bought it from guitar center and wish i would have bought anything but this. the neck is so thin that if you hold the bass aginst your body in playing position and with you left hand gently pull the bass toward you from the headstock that the neck bends(with noooo effort) i worry that it will break in my hardshell case. the coil tapping is cool because the humbuckers cause too much output in my amp and cause it to clip(no matter what). trust me i have been around the block before and this bass sucks. if your going to spend YOUR money then just save up for something better then this.. ibanez, or a Fender, or a G and L tribute.
I bought this bass 3 months ago, I LOVE playing this bass. the coil tap feature is very nice and adds another dimension to your sound. It plays very smoothly and has a great tone range for a passive bass. This is not a light bass it has some weight to it but it's not too heavy. Over all I would give this a 5 star rating given the features for the price BUT if you EVER need strings in a pinch you will NOT find them in any store, this bass has a 34" scale and the strings are body thru. this bass requires extra long scale strings and not even Guitar Center carries them in store so you will have to order them in advance. I was not happy to find that Guitar Center carries this bass in store but I have to order the strings.
I got this as a christmas gift and I must say it's stunning sound is amazing. The neck is just perfect. The color is great. Very great bass to invest in if one is tight in funds or simply for a beginner. Originally I was looking for an Ibanez but this bass completely blew my mind away!
After my old 5 string decided to give out I looked at a Fender, Couple of Ibenez's and several others. Out of all I looked at, This Schecter has a great feel on the neck, action is better than my old bass, very clean sound. Well worth the money when on a tight budget.
