The Schecter Diamond-P Custom Electric Bass is perfect for classic tones to aggressive modern sounds. Armed with a Schecter custom Super Rock humbucker pickup at the bridge and a Monster Tone II pickup in the neck position you'll have full control over tonal approaches. Coil-splitting the Super Rock pickup extends the range of the Diamond-P custom bass into vintage revisits.
Road tested and reliable Grover Vintage Tuners hold the strings over the Schecter custom Top Load/String Thru high mass bridge-which allows for tensioned dropped tunings many metal players use. The Diamond-P bass' 34"-scale maple neck boasts 21 frets on the rosewood fingerboard, and an alder body that make the Schecter Diamond-P Custom the right bass for the best price.

Hey, I got this bass in Oct. of 2010, and its now Mar. 2011, so here is my review. Looks: Great looks, the pictures do not do it justice really. I have the Dark Metallic Blue and it really does look great. I plan on adding some of the DR red devil strings, I think the red would go great with the dark blue finish. I have not noticed any defects at all in the fit or finish. I believe these are made in California (says the plate on the back). Play: This is my third regularly played bass. The first was a Squire, the second and off brand (Hohner some or another). This is by far a better bass. The action is very good, and required very little effort to play. I mostly finger pick and slap a little, and sometimes use a heavy pick. There is a slight amount of fret buzz when playing hard, but its not that bad. I practice once a week at the least, and play once a week at church, and it stays in tune very well for around 3-6 weeks. Currently I have been playing it for about 6-8 weeks without tuning and I notice that its slightly out of tune on the higher strings. It would benefit greatly from a compressor/sustain pedal I believe. I hope to get one soon, and update this review. Its currently playing through a 110W acoustic brand setup and sounds very nice.
Hey, my mom bought me a diamond for my birthday. I have been playing it for about 3 months now. I am an intermediate player. I started with a squire (fender) and also played two other off-brand basses. I practice and play every week now with the diamond. The color in the picture (the blue) looks much better in person. Each pickup has its own volume control (top two knobs) and the bottom knob pulls up to use the coil-splitting feature (which I dont use too much) and that just slightly changes the tone. Turning the knob allows you to fine tune the guitar to your play style, which really helps with playing slap bass. I use it 99% of the time playing in church (contemporary to christian rock) and the rest of the time playing harder rock at my house (songs by Thrice, Blindside, etc.). The strings are very close and require very little effort to push. It seems to hold its tuning for 3 to 4 weeks (approx. 5 to 6 hours of playing). It plays great with fingers, picks, or slapping. The only thing it really needs is a fifth string.
The fit and finish is stellar. It is a heavy bass that is very resonant with loads of sustain. The neck finish is silky and the fret edges are smooth. The pickups are more modern and high output in nature but the tone is great. Rolling off of the pickup volumes on the bass allows it to lean a little more towards vintage but it never quite gets there although pulling the tap on the bridge humbucker helps in this area. Overall a superbly built instrument that I wish had more vintage character out of the box to match its looks. However, its woody growl with a modern twist gives it a pretty unique tone of its own.
This is an almost-perfect bass. If you want something like an Epiphone Thunderbird + Fender Jazz, here it is. It has an dark punk tone, good for post-punk, hardcore punk, heavy metal, and also Noise rock. To me it's very good bass, good for plucking. Very stright foward bass with a "Indepent" tone. I would recommend this to an beginner and even a professional. :)
