A powerhouse 5-string bass packed with earth-shaking tone.

The Schecter C-5 GT 5-string electric bass is designed for full-throttle, high-octane performance that pushes the limits. It features a mahogany body paired with a flamed maple, full radius top and is decorated with a “GT” racing stripe for eye-catching visuals. Armed with an ultra-fast 3-piece maple neck, this bass was built for speed and comfort. The neck has been shaped with an ultra-thin “C” profile and the deep insert neck joint construction allows easy access to the upper frets. The 16” radius ebony fingerboard is outfitted with 24 extra-jumbo frets, while offset/reverse roman numeral inlays add a touch of darkness to this speed machine. With an EMG 40DC in the bridge position and an EMG 40P5 in the neck position, master volume and blend controls, and a 2-band EMG EQ, the C-5 GT offers a wealth of sonic possibilities at your fingertips. Rounding out the black hardware is a Schecter Custom bass bridge that will stabilize tuning and withstand anything you can dish out. Take your sound to the next level with the Schecter C-5 GT 5-string electric bass. Order today.
