    Remember when these went around the first time. Feel free to report it to eBay. I already have and broke the news to the seller if he doesn't already know.

    Schecter or not, at a buck and 4 (currently) I'd say that's pretty good value. $35 shipping is reasonable too.

    It's not as if the guy is trying to pass it off as a vintage Fender, but nice of you to set him straight.
     
  3. 10 to 1 that that's a plywood body, but if it can be bought cheaply enough it might make a fun project.
     
  4. At that price, you could have a far nicer SX.

    He posted your comment on the page, so he's not trying to hide the fact. Plus he pointed out that the body looks cheap. I wouldn't report it. I don't think he's trying to rip anyone off.
    Plus, if someone is dumb enough at this point to spend a grand or something like that on it, well then they deserve to lose their money :smug:
     
  6. At what price? It's sitting at ten bucks right now.

    Absolutely a plywood body. The black forearm contour is a dead giveaway. It covers the plies. No one paints a burst like that unless they want to hide the plies.
     
  8. Yep. It's pretty much a dead giveaway.
     
  9. Everybody is talking about making it into a project bass.

    After you dump all kinds of money into it, you could have just had a nicer SX to begin with.

    But, project basses ARE an awful lot of fun.
     
  10. Well, to be honest, if I bought an SX I'd probably yank out the cheap pots, jack, wiring and maybe the pickups right off the bat, making it a project bass. Same thing I'd do to that plywood "Schecter" if I got it.

    I always have one or two project basses on the workbench these days.
     
  11. Yeah, I suppose you're right.

    Wish I could do that. Seems like I never have a positive cash flow, though. :p
     
  12. Mine positively will flow. Right out of my pocket!
