collapse expand iconDescription

The Schecter C-4 GT electric bass is a force to be reckoned with as this innovative bass is built for serious players seeking maximum tone and playability. Featuring a mahogany body with a flamed maple top and a "GT" racing stripe for edgy style, the C-4 GT is hot-rodded with an EMG 40DC bridge pickup and EMG 40P5 neck pickup to provide a range of punchy to warm tones with clarity and definition.

High-Performance Electronics Provide Versatile Tone

The dual EMG pickups, including the 40DC in the bridge position and 40P5 at the neck, offer highly responsive, flexible tone options for any style. The 40DC bridge pickup provides focused lows, tight mids and cutting highs ideal for rock and metal, while the 40P5 neck pickup offers warm, full lows and rounded highs perfect for jazz, blues and classic rock.

Fast Neck and Ebony Fretboard Enable Effortless Playability

The C-4 GT features a fast 3-piece maple neck with an ultrathin C-profile for speed, comfort and stability. An ebony fretboard includes offset/reverse Roman numeral inlays, providing an elegant touch. 24 jumbo frets allow for expressive, articulate playability across the fretboard. A deep insert neck joint provides easy access to upper frets for soloing.

EQ Provides Tonal Sculpting

Shape your tone with the 2-band EMG EQ, including Bass and Treble controls. Dial in punchy lows or bright highs as needed for your style or the venue. The EQ, combined with the dual EMG pickups, provides a wide range of tones to suit any musical need.

High-Quality Components for Superior Performance

From the Schecter Custom bass bridge to the die-cast tuners, the C-4 GT is equipped with premium components for outstanding performance, tuning stability and sustain. The C-4 GT bass inspires confidence for any gig or studio work.
