    That's what I have. What I don't have is much info. Looks to be a custom limited edition - maple body and neck - rosewood(?) fingerboard - gold hardware - 2 pots, one of which is push/pull - I don't know about the tone knob - is it supposed to be push/pull too?. Anybody know what the pups are? I bought it off a friend years ago who was closing his shop, and I don't play the bass. I don't think it has been played very much, in fact he put the strap buttons on it when he gave it to me. I have searched and have come up with nothing on the net. At least these pics will be out there now. Maybe I should start playing, except this thing is heavy! All info appreciated. Here are some pics, enjoy, and here is the link to all the pics:

    jeezus...the wood is beautiful...solid maple. That thing must go 13 pounds. The brass alone has to account for two or more pounds.

    Nice axe...

    You have to be a supporting member to ask "how much is my bass worth?" questions.



    That aside - that's an absolutely stunning bass!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I'm all about vintage Schecter basses and have owned a few. That is hands down the most beautiful I have seen.



    NICE!

    Thanks everyone - she really is a looker - suppose all unplayed gits are! I took out the worth question from my original post. Sorry to the mods about that. I just can't find any pics or anything on this particular model except the fact there were some customs put out there in that era.

    Schecter was a full custom shop back then and as far as I know every bass was unique. If you feel like it, take the pickups out and see if the body was made by Boogie Bodies. A lot of the 70's Schecters were Schecter necks on Boogie Bodies bodies.

    I have an 86 Schecter P in Black/Maple and it's a very good, well built bass. Never seen one with this custom level of wood, but that thing is nice!

    Ah, a thread after my own heart: a bass from the good old days, when Schecters were seriesly drool-worthy! Dat dere's a winner.

    The tone knob probably isn't supposed to be push pull. The Schecters I've seen with push pull knobs function as coil taps. One pickup only needs one push pull knob. Amazingly well preserved bass.

    Exactly.

    Cool to see an old schecter so well preserved. Don't see many of them around any more… and not surprising considered how much a lot of them weighed :p

    I still have my 80 or 81 schecter jazz (with coil tap pickups, and same bridge as the OP's), it weighs a freakin' ton! Sadly the neck twisted on it several years back.

    They were pretty high end back in 81.
