THE NEW REDESIGNED SCHECTER DIAMOND-P PLUS BASS
For 2015 we took the Diamond-P shape and redesigned it from the ground up to have a Vintage look while having top of the line electronics, versatile tone possibilities, and modern construction.
Starting with the Seymour Duncan Pickups, the Bridge pickup is the MM style ‘SMB-4D’, and the Neck pickup is the Quarter Pound P ‘SPB-3’. The SMB-4D is a hum-canceling pickup offering a balanced, highly musical tone contour with a richly articulated bottom, lots of midrange, and the treble has a great bite. The SPB-3 pickup features quarter-inch diameter pole pieces expanding the magnetic field and extending the frequency ranges for a fat, full, punchy sound with tremendous mid-range presence and maximum output. Though often used for heavy rock tones, this pickup gives amazing tonal versatility to a single pickup instrument making this the most popular Seymour Duncan Bass pickup.
The Master Volume knob features a ‘Series-Parallel’ Push-Pull pot wired for the ‘SMB-4D’ MM Bridge pickup. In ‘Series’ (Down position) the Seymour Duncan MM is wired as a high output Humbucker with Massive Low-end and amazing Midrange Attack. In ‘Parallel’ (Up position) still hum-cancelling the pickup has a wonderful Vintage tone rounding off the Midrange and focusing on a sparkling Treble upper spectrum in tone.
