  • Beautiful axe featuring the real rock/metal tone.

    As reviewed by Felipe Giannazzo on 7/7/2010

    I bought this bass for the looks, but ended up admiring the sound it produces. I am a metal/rock player, so low tunings are a normal thing for me. This bass took my preference of high caliber strings and a Drop C tuning, without losing sound quality or playability. The electronics equipped on it are unbelievable, because it's the same as having an expensive active electronics set, without the need of a battery! For me, it?s the perfect axe. I won?t get tired of hearing people saying how beautiful my bass is! Thanks Schecter!

  • Lovely Guitar

    As reviewed by JimBo on 6/21/2010

    Only had this guitar for a week, took it back because I preferred another one a little better. Still, this is a great guitar. The active electronics sound wonderful. The body design & finish (I got the trans-ocean blue) are super cool. The dark chrome hardware is very slick and adds a nice touch. A tad larger and heavier than most basses. The body has very square edges, rather than rounded ones. Great value, hard to be dissapointed with this one.

  • Beautiful

    As reviewed by Meh on 11/30/2010

    I was looking to start playing a 5 string after a while, and this one immediately caught my eye. The bass itself felt very nice in my hands and when playing a few 5 string riffs I had memorized. I'm a fan of humbucker pickups, so these were perfect for me. After ordering and receiving mine (they had it back order for the longest time), it was set up perfectly out of the box. Surprising, I know, but there was no fret buzz, and the strings were perfect, after a little tuning obviously. I would definitely recommend this 5 string to anyone looking to step up from a 4 string.
