      Comments about Schecter Guitar Research CV-5 Bass 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

      I've been playing for a long time and have played many different makes and model basses. I primarily settled for playing Fender bass guitars. I stepped away from playing music for about 6 years and decided to get back into playing. I needed to buy a 5-string bass and went to a bunch of local music stores including a nearby Guitar Center. None of the basses seemed to be well made and I was getting really annoyed by this until I picked up this Schecter. This bass totally fit me well. It felt right, sounded great and has quality written all over it. Just played it for the the first time with the band today and it has totally exceeded my expectations. Good going Schecter for a well made all around good bass. Highly recommend this to a bassist of any genre.

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research CV-5 Bass 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        I am a 63 year old musician that started playing in 1965 and has never stopped. I have played bass guitars in every price range up to around 3 grand.This passive bass is absolutely the best sounding,best playing bass in its price range I have ever purchased.It has a very percussive punchy sound and kind of a rugged but warm feel to it.You want be disappointed if your looking for that classic rock bass sound that came out of the sixty's.

        nice bass I suppose

        Comments about Schecter Guitar Research CV-5 Bass 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

        There are basses that give good sound and basses that give reliability but only once in the cycle of life does one find a bass that seems made for you, and this bass is that for me. The white maple neck one shown is not what I bought, I got the rosewood/natural finish black pick-guard.
