Product Spotlight: Schecter, Tokai and Yamaha Bass Guitars

Over the past few weeks we have been focusing on Bass Guitars. This week our attention is on instruments offered by Schecter, Tokai and Yamaha.

Schecter's Nikki Sixx Signature bass with its reverse offset body shape is a pleasure to play both live and in studio. This weapon of choice designed for the flamboyant rocker of Motley Crue and Sixx A.M. fame is loaded with features. EMG X Active pickups with a kill switch are installed into a mahogany winged, neck-thru body design producing a powerful dynamic tone with sustain for days. A high mass bridge and Grover mini tuners complete this Matte Black finished rock beast.

Tokai are a Japanese company who have a reputation for building quality guitars and their basses are no exception. The VB-50-VS is modeled on the famous 'Beatle bass' as played by Paul McCartney of The Beatles. This flamed sycamore hollow body bass features similar controls to the original with independent volume controls and the ability to switch between rhythm and solo modes.

If you're looking for something a bit more classic rock, the Thunderbird SG inspired bass finished in cherry red is just the ticket. Dual pickups with separate volume and tone controls and a three way switch allow the artist to dial in a wide variety of tones. Each Tokai bass also comes with a high quality gig bag.

Yamaha is a stalwart in the music industry with the brand being associated with high quality, reliability, innovative development, and most importantly great sounding products. Their TRBX304 bass reinforces these qualities. A sleek mahogany body mated with a five piece laminated mahogany/maple bolt on neck provides a strong resonant tone, easy access to the higher frets, and a fast, easy to play action. Hum cancelling pickups and an active two band EQ supply the tones, while a clever 5 way switch with pre-selected EQ bands allow you to select from slap to finger to solo modes pending on the style you're going after. These basses are receiving excellent reviews and are definitely worth looking at if you're a semi-pro player looking to upgrade.

So that rounds out our Product Spotlight on the bass guitars available here at The Music Spot. Given our extensive range we're very confident you'll find the right bass that meets your needs and desires.
