Schecter Guitar Research


The P-5 is Schecter's take on the classic P-style bass design with all the killer appointments that you’d expect from a tone-heavy workhorse. While the Schecter P-5 sports an elegant P-bass look, modern features like a Schecter MonsterTone-P pickup and narrow extra jumbo frets give it a modern sound and effortless playability. Equipped with the Schecter USA MonsterTone-P split-coil pickup the P-5 Bass provides the warm, well-rounded bass tones from a split-coil but with more power for the deep lows, articulate highs and the quiet operation needed for modern music. The P-5 also features a super comfortable thin-C shape and a rosewood fingerboard with a 16" radius for a smooth, natural feel. Premium hardware appointments include a Graph Tech XL Ivory Tusq nut, a Schecter high mass bridge and narrow extra jumbo frets.
