Well, N(to me) BD. I snagged a left handed active five-stringed jazz bass (that's enough adjectives for now) off of the GC used website for a great price, and it arrived today. It's a Schecter Diamond Series, according to the headstock, but I've never seen any others, let alone lefties. First impressions: It's a lot of bass for the money. Yeah, the pickup routs are bigger than the pickups, the pick guard is a botched attempt at a Marcus Miller bass, and there are a few stripped screws here and there. It plays really nicely though. That being said, it's got Bartolini JB pickups in it (though I've no idea what model) and a preamp to boot. This is my first active bass and my first fiver, so IMO it's as good as any to test the waters! Also, if anyone can hazard a guess as to the make/model of the preamp, that would be great. Now: group shot!
