    PRICE DROP: NOW $500 plus shipping. Figure more for trade.

    FS/FT: my rare Schecter P bass. Had to start a new thread since I couldn't edit the old one any more. Old Thread can be found: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-rare-early-80s-usa-schecter-p-bass-980257/

    There's not much info on these Schecters. This one is likely from the early 80s and is in great shape. I'm told it's likely a Dallas era Schecter.

    Very little wear and no signs of abuse. Frets, neck, truss and electronics are great. Fit, feel and finish are excellent. It is on par with American Fenders. Neck is a dream. And it's very light - maybe 9 lbs.

    All original except the pups - now EMGs. Stock PJ configuration. Tuners and bridge are Schaller - but stamped Schecter.

    I'd hang this against most any American Standard P. I've had this up for a while so I'm not in a rush.

    $500 FIRM Plus shipping. Figure more for trades.

    Trades:

    Amps: Markbass 210 combo, Ampeg PN210HLF, Ampeg PN410HLF, Avatar 210, Markbass 210. Markbass 610.
    Basses: Fender Jazz 24 4/5, EB Musicman SUB 5., Warwick Corvette 4/5, Fender Hwy 1 Jazz

    PMs responded.

    - It's 9 lbs or less. It's the lightest bass I own which is why I've been hanging onto it. I'm just not playing it much.

    - I have a HSC I can include for a little more

    - It sounds great - sounds like a Fender with EMGs - I put it up against any fender for both tone and feel.

    PMs responded. I've got a line on a sweet USA SUB and a Jazz 24 V. Hoping for a sale but will consider trades.

    Pics of headstock and back of bass. There is no buckle rash. The neck is straight and true and the truss rod works.

    PMs replied. Still here. Again, I'll be pretty picky - I have my hands on a sweet MM SUB. But feel free to pass along any offers....worst I can say is no thanks.

    $500 for this? Absurd. This is much better than an American Fender of the same period.

    Anyway, whoever scores this will be happy for sure.

    Thanks. I agree. Not much market for this era Schecter. I may end up pulling it back down again. May convert it back to full passive.

    Updated trade bait.

    It's seriously a lot of bass for this price. Fit finish, feel and tone are all excellent. I just haven't played it in a long time and can't afford to hold onto it (or so the mrs tells me).

    Some guys who were closely associated with Schecter back in the day — Tom Anderson, John Suhr, Rudy Pensa. Want a really high quality P/J for next to no money?

    This is it.
