Schecter – C-5 Apocalypse


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.
