Swamp Ash Body

The Diamond-J Plus features a body constructed from high quality swamp ash, making it lightweight, and resonant. The swamp ash creates an airy, twang tone that’s pleasantly sweet, offering firm lows, pleasing highs, slightly scooped mids, and an excellent amount of sustain. The Wilkinson bridge keeps the strings secure whilst allowing the string vibration to pass into the body wood, enhancing the alder’s resonance. The Schecter is finished off with an aged natural finish and chrome hardware to create a visually stunning look that’s both stylish and sleek.

Maple Neck and Fingerboard

With a neck and fingerboard both constructed from maple, the Schecter’s tone is tight and cut, providing an edge of sizzle to the highs and firmness to the lows. The maple wood provides bright characteristics to the overall tone, whilst offering a snappy attack in the midrange. When the strings are played hard, the wood produces more punch to the tone, and when played with light or medium picking, then tone has excellent clarity. The bass guitar also comes with many other features, including vintage Grover tuners, a Graph Tech nut, and ebony block inlays on the fretboard.

Seymour Duncan Pickups

Featuring a set of Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound J pickups, to offer a hot output, great attack, and massive amounts of tonal attitude. Featuring Alnico V rod magnets, diameter poles and intense coil windings, the Quarter Pound pickups are designed to take the bass to new tonal heights. With both pickups provide a full, even response with great sustain and sonic richness, the neck is built with a RWRP setup to provide hum cancelling when used with the bridge pickup.

Controls

The Schecter’s Volume control knob features a phase push/pull design for the bridge pickup, allowing you two choose whether or not its in phase with the neck pickup. When set to the ‘in phase’ mode, then the neck provides normal tone when combined with the neck. When set to the ‘out-of-phase’ then the bridge produces a honky tone that has a lot of emphasis in the midrange. The 4-way rotary switch gives you the ability to combine the bridge and neck pickup in series or parallel, offering a wide range of tonal possibilities.

Seymour Duncan's 2-Band Active EQ adds even more tone shaping versatility, enabling the player to add or subtract EQ at center frequencies voiced specifically for electric bass. The EQ can be used to make the low end deep, clear, and tight, whilst offering different treble 'dip switch' frequency centers to choose from. The lower setting is perfect for adding growl and bite to the tone, while the higher setting provides a crystal clear top end.
