    I first got this bass about a month ago, when I was looking for a step up from my Squier starter pack. My friend suggested Schecter to me, I found this bass and instantly fell in love with it. The action is not too high not too low, just perfect. The tuners stay nice and smooth. The bridge could be better, but it's not something I'm too concedrned about. The EMG pickups give a great tone, and pack a lot of punch. I run the bass through a Fender Rumble 15 that came with my Squier starter pack, but this Schecter still sounds amazing through it. The electronics are very nice, I can get any tone out of it, it has a 2 band EQ, with a master volume control, and a pickup balancer. If the neck pickup is turned all the way up, it gives off a very nice slap tone. The only problem I've ever had with it was when I was trying to tune the G-String, it snapped, though I take full blame for that, I wasn't paying attention to how tight the string was, So I just replaced the strings with some Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings, and now I'm almost happy that the original string broke. This bass is a great bass for anyone looking for their second bass. It is one of the best basses on the market for it's price range.

    My friend, a fellow bassist, recently bought this for about $***, which is around the same as my Fender jazz bass (the Mexican one, which has an amazing feel and tone. My first impression of this bass was that it looked really great and expensive. The Black Cherry finish looks amazing and the hardware is clean and streamlined. The feel of the bass, however, isn't it up to par. The setup my friend had was with really low action, yet again about the same as my Jazz Bass, but it felt insanely rigid and tight, with no smoothness,akin to cheap starter basses and First Acts I've played in the past (No, I never owned a First Act.)I guess that the tone is alright, but it's nothing stellar, or at least, not what I would expect with EMG's. So basically, the bass is priced because of it's looks, and it's tone and feel are far under par it's price range. Go with Ibanez or Spector instead of this if you want a modern looking bass at this price range.The Spector Rebop basses are miles above this thing.

    Great Bass

    By Llama-eQZxU

    from Wisconsin

    I own a Warwick fretless corvette, and I wanted a second bass for gigs. I actually want to the store to purchase an Ibanez (which was a let down), then I saw this one. From the moment I picked up this bass I knew I was going to buy it. The pickups are great, I love the bride, and I just really like the way it feels in my hands. This is one really great bass, its light weight packs a punch and begs for more. Although it wouldn't be fair to compare this bass to my Warwick, its versatility and price makes this the one bass that you must try out before you make your next purchase.

    Perfect Playability

    By FingerMan420

    from Huntsville, AL

    I have owned this bass for about 6 years now. It plays and sounds just as good as it looks. I have played so may gigs with it I lost count. Funk, Rock, Metal, Jazz... It is very sturdy and feels like it could really take a beating. I usually take this bass when I ride my motorcycle to practice. The stock set up was great. The neck plays like butter and just keeps getting better with age. I like that it was stock with Elixer strings.

    Shecter C-4

    By BootzyCollins

    from Cmas Washington

    Got this for christmas, and started playing.And instintly i was amazed.The look is great the sound is great enverything is just great. The bass boost is so powerful and the treble booster is nice and smooth.The style sweeper does such a nice job, when i move the knob towards the finger side is so smooth. Smooth is the only word i can use to describe the sound. When i move the knob towards the slap style, once again its so smooth sounding. And the slap sound is so nice and clean, and its glass sounding if that makes sence. The neck is fast and beautiful not to mention the inlays on the finger board. And the gold hardware is so nice. The only thing i wish this bass had, is a mid-bass booster. But no big deal, just use the amp.Overall the bass is nice for the price and you wont be disappointed with your purchase at all.

    Excellent Bass

    By rtsc9090

    from Georgia

    I've had this bass for a little over a month now and it has been nothing but awesome! The quality is great, its flawless. It is also at a great price. So if you have the money to spare GET IT. I use mine in live performances regularly and I have yet to have any problem. The EMG pick-ups are active which just makes it even better, and I have yet to have to change the battery. So if you have the money get it!!!

    Get this bass!

    By funkybass4ever

    from Anaheim

    I have had this bass for 2 years now and beat it up real good when I practice and this bass can take it. I have had some of the gold on my bridge come off and had to solder my plug in a little since I don't have wireless but that was minor after a year or so. The finish is awesome, the neck is solid and fast. I play through an ampeg combo and have EMG's on it and it sounds real great. Not the best bass for funk due to the neck pickup being in the way but all other types of music it is perfect. It was my intermediate bass and I logged massive hours on it. I will never sell it ! It looks 99% as good after 2 years of constant playing as it did when i bought it.

    Savage!

    This bass is awsome. I got it a year ago and it is still amazing and has a great look. In person it is beautiful and the tone is almost as beautiful.

    Suprising...

    By fixxxer6661

    from buffalo, ny

    After two days of visiting music stores and playing essentially every bass known to man I came across this one. I was suprised! Great feel, light weight, smoothe playabillity, powerful sound, varied tone capabilities and this thing plays fast! The looks were only a bonus. After hours of playing this bass and plugging into several amps just to make sure it was the bass I was hearing I knew my exhausted search was over. Don't base your purchase on looks, go to any schector dealer and try it for yourself. If it fits you, buy it; you won't find a better bass for this price!

    Excellent Bass Guitar

    Unbelievable tone that can be noticed and heard. I recently had the pickup selector die on me, but overall excellent bass.

    Thats a whole lot of man!

    By Name-fgy_M

    from New Jersey

    Whoa nelly! What a beast! Extremely punchy tone. I mean, sure, you can make it go real flat, but this thing gives more kick than tabasco sauce! I run it through an Ampeg and it sounds like Jesus. I am so glad I purchased this particular piece of equipment. It was love from first play. It feels great. PERFECT weight! Some basses/guitars are either WAYYY too heavy or WAYYY too light. This is a solid medium. LOOKS! This bass looks Godly. Amazing colour. I love it. This thang is perfect. I would recomend it to anybody who wants a punchy, strong bass. Go for it!
