The thin “C” neck with ebony fingerboard and an extra-long 35″ scale on the C-5 Apocalypse throw open the gates of stylistic exploration and invite you to expand your playing in ways a smaller scale might not. Go up the smooth ebony fingerboard, and you’ll find new tonal expressions. A pair of Apocalypse pickups are there to translate your playing into rich, low-end amplified tone.
For metal bassists who rock and rock hard onstage and at home, Schecter offers up the C-5 Apocalypse 5-string Bass. Made from a solid swamp ash body, this instrument just oozes metal madness. A pair of Schecter Apocalypse 5 pickups delivers killer low end as well as searing midrange. A thin “C” neck with ebony fingerboard and an extra-long 35″ scale sit balanced and ready for smoking-fast runs and rhythmic lines that are the foundation of great metal.
