As the brain behind Body Count's street-shaking bass lines, Vincent Price knows a thing or two about brutal riffs and heavy tone! With the signature MVP-C-4 Vincent Price bass from Schecter, players can tap into the sound and specs of a Grammy-winning bassist. The Schecter MVP-C-4 Vincent Price bass boasts a stunning Satin Black Reign finish exclusive to Body Count signature guitars and detailed construction, including a carbon-reinforced maple neck and active EMG pickups. A mahogany body delivers a classic heavy tone with commanding presence, bold sustain, and a 24-fret range for low-end punch and range fit for solos. Sweetwater bassists find the MVP-C-4 a true “most valuable player” thanks to two active EMG pickups onboard. These fierce pickups pack ceramic and steel magnets with a biting EMG 35DC humbucker in the bridge position and a balanced, warmer EMG 35CS humbucker in the neck position.
Vincent Price counts breakneck D-beat legends such as Discharge among his top influences. The MVP-C-4 is optimized accordingly with tonewoods shaped for maximum playability, even when sessions and gigs run long. The MVP-C-4’s smooth ebony fretting surface features 24 stainless steel frets and offset Roman Numeral inlays for effortless leaps between high and low frets. Backing the fingerboard is a maple neck triple optimized with 3-piece construction, carbon reinforcement, and Schecter’s “Thin C” neck carve. Schecter’s Ultra Access heel takes this neck’s range to the limit with clean, cramp-free access to those critical upper frets. Maple’s inclusion sharpens the guitar’s overall attack, while the neck’s 3-piece build and carbon fiber reinforcement guarantee impressive long-term stability and climate resistance. Beyond bass lines, Vincent Price has an earnest passion for gear and has worked in the past as a pro guitar tech. It’s safe to say his signature Schecter echoes those professional standards with unbeatable performance at a great price.
The MVP-C-4’s dual EMG humbuckers offer two distinct shades of active aggression matched with tools for fast, efficient tweaks. The bridge position EMG 35DC taps the scorching heat of ceramic magnets for piercing high-gain aggression. Down low, the 35DC grinds and growls while crisp, fluid treble response up high compliments the fingerboard’s twenty-four frets. This pickup cuts through mixes like a hot knife through butter, but when you need beefier output with a touch more restraint, the neck position 35CS humbucker more than delivers. The 35CS’ blend of ceramic and steel magnets gives it a warm, girthy punch with a less aggressive top end — just the thing for dynamic contrasts and sparse sections! On the control side, the MVP-C-4 delivers elegant, quick switching with master volume and blend knobs, plus an active 2-band EQ for shaping color.
The MVP-C-4 comes packed with advanced hardware for increased resonance and flexible setups. Noteworthy hardware includes a premium TUSQ XL nut, Grover 144 tuners, and a 2-way Schecter bridge that can be set up as top-loading or string-through. Choose string-through for slightly more sustain, or change course with a top-loading setup for faster attack and response.
