Schecter SLS Elite-5 Evil Twin 5-String Black Electric Bass Guitar
The sinister sibling of the SLS Elite-5 Bass, the SLS Evil Twin-5 delivers the same performance details with a darker visual impact.
A carbon fiber-reinforced 7-ply Maple/Walnut/Padauk ultra-thin Thru-Neck meets a premium swamp-ash body, and is then treated with an ultra-access heel carve for comfortable playing in all positions of the 35" scale neck and unencumbered access to all 24 X-Jumbo stainless steel frets.
The premium electronics package features Fishman’s Fluence bass pickups, offering incredible power with stunning clarity and warmth, and a generous assortment of tone-sculpting options at the player’s fingertips including a 2-band EQ, single-coil switching option via the volume push-pull, and 3- way switch for alternate voicing and mid-cut selections.
Ensuring that the foundation you lay for your bandmates is solid and consistent, premium components including a GraphTech BlackTusq nut, Schecter Custom bridge, and Grover 144 tuners keep your tuning exactly where you want it.
Available in Satin Black with Rusty Grey back and sides and pearloid Roman Numeral fretboard inlay, the SLS Evil Twin-5 has head-turning looks to match its tone and playability. Case sold separately.
