See all Schecter products
If you're a bassist, you already have an affinity for the lower end of the scale. But if a traditional bass isn't able to go as low as you want to go, or if you're just looking for more note position options, a 5-string bass is for you. And when you're also seeking high-quality components and rock or metal styling, Schecter is a great bet. This section has an ample variety of Schecter Guitar Research 5 string electric basses for most skill levels and budgets to help you lay down the bedrock for your band's sound. Are tonal control and understated good looks your main concerns? If so, the Schecter Guitar Research Stiletto Extreme-5 5-String Bass Guitar may be what you're looking for. With its 24-jumbo-fret rosewood fingerboard and maple neck, this bass is smooth and fast to play. Its electronics consist of two Schecter bass humbuckers with active EQ, making it easy to control and personalize your bass tone. When only the finest tone and eye-catching appearance will do, there's the Schecter Guitar Research Hellraiser Extreme-5 Electric Bass Guitar. Meticulously crafted from select maple and walnut wood, this beautiful instrument blends their darker and brighter aspects to create well-balanced tone. Plus, it has both single and dual-coil EMG 40TW pickups with separate outputs and a push/pull volume pot to switch between the single-coil clarity and humbucker fatness on demand. Renowned bassists as diverse as Johnny Christ of Avenged Sevenfold, Daniel Firth of Cradle of Filth, Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue and Simon Gallup of The Cure all use Schecter Guitar Research basses onstage and in-studio to perform and record their hits. That's how you know Schecter's instruments live up to the hype. So take a look around the varied options in this section and you may just find that your next 5-string is among them.
