SKU:  7106-1452SHC
Manufacturer Part #:  1452SHC

Huge Value in a 5-string Boutique Bass

The Schecter Riot-5 electric bass looks and sounds wicked; its high-end boutique visuals and appointments belying its amazingly affordable price tag. Premium tonewoods are used throughout, including richly grained swamp ash for the sleekly sculpted body and beautiful burl for the top veneer. The Riot-5's thin bolt-on multi-ply maple/walnut neck and ebony fingerboard give you smooth playability and superior stability, courtesy of embedded carbon fiber reinforcement rods. The electronics package is top-flight as well, with a pair of active EMG pickups and 3-band EQ delivering the versatile tone you need to ace any live gig or studio session.

EMG pickups deliver a huge range of awesome bass tones

This bass is ready for a workout. Schecter loaded the Riot-5 with a pair of active EMG pickups to make sure it could handle anything you could throw at it. The EMG 35PX-CS in the neck position covers a wide range of classic and modern sounds. Because it uses ceramic magnets coupled with short, squat, parallel coils, the tone has brilliant treble articulation along with forceful low-end punch and overall warmth, superior dynamics, natural presence, and low noise.

For more midrange growl and punch, Schecter included the EMG35JX-CS in the bridge position. Utilizing ceramic magnets with steel pole pieces and EMG's X Series preamp, this pickup delivers dynamic range closer to the feel of a passive pickup, with the extended frequency range and quiet operation of an active. Less bright than most traditional J-style pickups, the 35JX-CS serves up a warmer, deeper, richer sound with smoother attack and less high-end presence. These EMG pickups deliver big bass tones while being extremely quiet, thanks to ultra-low-noise preamps.

Powerful 3-band EQ lets you dial in the perfect tone

When you need a specific tone for a recording session or live gig, there's nothing like an active EQ. The Schecter Riot-5 bass sports a powerful 18-volt 3-band EQ that gives you more headroom and a smoother low end. From funk to jazz to nu-metal, the Riot-5's EQ has the tone-sculpting power you need in a bass.

Custom neck joint for enhanced sustain and playability

There's a reason for the enduring popularity of basses with bolt-on necks — they sound punchy and quite different from neck-through and set-neck designs. Schecter has taken the classic 5-bolt design to the next level with their 5-bolt neck joint, which not only provides more contact between neck and body for greater stability, vibrational transfer, and sustain, but also gives you a smooth, tapered heel for unrestricted high-register access. Pick up a Schecter Riot-5, and you'll experience everything bolt-on construction has to offer.
