Schecter Guitar Research - Diamond J Plus - Ivory

Schecter took the Diamond-J shape and redesigned it from top to bottom to have a vintage look while having state of the art  electronics, versatile tone possibilities, and modern construction. Starting with the Seymour Duncan Pickups, the Bridge & Neck are the Quarter Pound J ‘SJB-3’. Developed for the bassist who needs the pumpin' output of the hot but with even stronger attack. The quarter-inch pole pieces and intense windings deliver a full response with great sustain.

The master volume knob features a ‘phase switch’ push-pull pot wired for the Quarter Pound J Bridge pickup. In ‘down position’ the Seymour Duncan ‘SJB-3’ is wired ‘in phase’ for normal tone when combined with the neck pickup. In ‘Up position’ the bridge pickup is wired ‘out-of-phase’ when combined with the neck pickup. This produces an original nasally honky tone with lots of emphasis on the Midrange. Previously a difficult tone to work with because the Low-end is cut until now since adding the Seymour Duncan 2-Band active EQ with 18v system the Bass can be boosted creating a very unique tone that can be used for tailoring your original sound. Schecter was looking for the most versatile tone possibilities so we developed this bass with a 4-Way Rotary pickup selector switch. This gives you the option to combine the bridge and neck pickup in ‘series’ or in ‘parallel’.
