Overview

This stylish and affordable electric bass features an 18V active pickup system with two EMG-designed single coils. The electronics consist of a master volume and a master blend knob that mixes the relative volume of the middle and bridge pickups. There is also a three-band active rotary EQ with cut and boost controls for bass/middle/treble. The satin finish lets the swamp ash grain show though and the lines and hardware complement to the inherent stylishness of this versatile bass guitar. 5-string.

Quality hardware, a slender and fast neck, active pickups and a handsome design make this a bass that is both affordable and professionaly presentable.

Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Riot-5 Session 5 String Electric Bass Guitar:

I haven't owned a bass with EMG's since the 90's and this one got my attention. Years ago, I owned an original Schecter bass, custom made in LA, and would have never considered owning a "new" Schecter but this bass definitely changed my mind. The neck is a perfect "C" shape and is fast and comfortable, with none of the typical dead spots. The position inlays, on the fingerboard, are real ebony wood and the fretwork is flawless. It's light weight and balance are spot on with no neck dive whatsoever. It has a natural matte finish that reminds me of a roasted maple look. It's darker in real life than the photos on the web. Excellent bridge with top load or thru the body stringing and Grover tuners. As if the bass wasn't good enough, the EMG electronics knocks it out of the park. It has the emg J in the neck and the dc in the bridge giving it the popular j/mm setup that is so popular. It has an emg 3 band preamp that gives you a ton of tonal possibilities and with its 18 volts it has tons of head room. Made in Korea with final setup in the USA, the quality and value are exceptional. This has quickly become my go to bass and can easily cover any style that I play.

    Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Riot-5 Session 5 String Electric Bass Guitar:

    As the first review said,this bass could sell for a lot more money.i played on the 4 string version first and really liked its feel and tone variations.i already have a 4string Marcus Miller bass. So I decided to get the Riot 5 string.the light weight and great neck and body feel was really great. Those EMGs really give this bass powerful slap and thump tone. It also has a great finger style tone too. I play old school funk smooth jazz blues and soft rock and Gospel. This bass handles all these styles!! Get one while the price is right! I think they will ask more for this bass in time.

      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research Riot-5 Session 5 String Electric Bass Guitar:

      You cannot find a better bass for under $700. You get a swamp ash body, EMG pickups, gotoh tuners, and many other pro features you would have to pay hundreds more for in other brands. This is by far the most versatile bass I have ever played; I can play jazz, metal, classic rock, or reggae on this thing and it all sounds equally amazing! Definitely better than the Ibanez I owned before. I 100% recommend it!
