Seymour Duncan Pickups
The Diamond-J Plus features a set of Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound J pickups, offer a hot output, great attack, and massive amounts of tonal attitude. Designed with alnico V rod magnets, diameter poles, and intense coil windings, the Quarter Pound pickups take the bass to new tonal heights. While both pickups provide a full, even response with great sustain and sonic richness, the neck is built with a RWRP setup for a hum-free operation when combined with the bridge pickup.
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, the neck provides normal tones when combined with the neck. When set to the ‘out-of-phase’ the bridge produces a honky tone with 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 centre 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 centres 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.
The Diamond-J Plus features a solid alder body, delivering strong, full-bodied tones with a decent amount of sustain. The rich sounding wood offers an excellently rounded low-end, bright, sizzling highs, and a beefy, pronounced midrange. 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 a beautiful ivory finish and chrome hardware to create a visually stylish and sleek look.
Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard
The maple wood provides the guitar with bright characteristics, creating a snappy attack in the midrange and a sizzling high end. When the strings are played hard, the wood adds more punch to the tone, and light or medium picking delivers extra clarity. Adding a rosewood fingerboard helps create a warmer and softer tone, with sparkling high end and a thick low end. The bass guitar also comes with many other features, including vintage Grover tuners, a Graph Tech nut, and mother of pearl dot inlays on the fingerboard.
