Built with an ash body, 3-piece maple neck and ebony fingerboard, the new bass is decked out in black with gold hardware. The hardware is accented by gold bone cross inlays for position markers as well as Avenged Sevenfold’s Skullbat logo at the 12th fret.

For pickups, the bass has an active EMG MMCS dual coil and an EMG 81. Schecter says the combination create a tone “designed with detailed intensity, incredible amounts of high end cut and fluid sustain.” The pickups are matched with an EMG 2-band EQ.

The Schecter Johnny Christ Signature Bass will be debut at NAMM and will carry an MSRP of $1,399. For more info, check out the Schecter website.
