    I picked this up a while back for it's coolness factor. If you have followed my posts and gear you know I have a very soft spot for odd basses. And this one qualifies.

    This is a rare, discontinued Schecter bass model. The only Avenger basses they make now are the neck through Dale Stewart models for like $900. It took me a while to find one. These were only made for a few years in the late 90s and the early 2000's I think. This one looks to be a 99 based on the SN.

    Black, 24 fret, EMG Hz pickups and 9v preamp,that early style inverted Schecter headstock. Strung up with a set of Black Beauties for the full stealth metal look.

    It has a 1.5 nut and a Ibanez like neck. Those are the primary reasons why I just won't play it. It has a lot of tonal options, plays well and fast. I just don't like the neck.

    The bass is in very good condition. The neck and frets are good. Electronics are good. There are a few things I will point out. The paint on this is sub par in my opinion. It's a little thick and wavy. Hard to photo since it's black. There are the customary swirls that you get with gloss black basses that also doesn't show up well in pics.

    Finally and most importantly: there were a few nicks and dings on the back and one chip on the corner. I filled in the chip and touched up the paint with black modeling paint (all my basses are black so it comes in handy). It's not the best job but the wood is protected. It's on the back and not visible from the front. From the front the bass is in near excellent condition.

    I could keep it as a wall hanger since it has a certain coolness factor, but I'd rather see if I can grab something else.

    $300 shipped USPS ground.

    May consider some trade options: Looking for a Fender P or similar, MM SUB, or lightweight head.

    Still available and still considering trades but really pushing for a sale. I found the bass at the top of my GAS list locally.

    I'll try to get some better outside pics today. Weather hasn't cooperated in PA.

    bump...I would consider intl shipping on this one since the neck can come off. Buyer to pay all shipping and handling and customs costs. Must have good history on TB.
