    Very cool riffing. I used to own one of those. They're really great basses.

    Awesome, and as a fellow Schecter fan, I definitely agree. But as living proof that gear acquisition does not improve playing skill, I know that the player is 95% of it. I think you could pick a trashed Squier out of the garbage, fiddle with it for a few minutes, and played something that sounded just about as good as what I just heard.

    So, what I am trying to say is that I need more specifics to understand your praise. What blew you away about this bass? What made it work for you? Was it the sound, the balance, the feel, the quality, or something else?

    They're an upper mid-level in price, and excellent quality for mass produced stuff. I had one from the earlier line, which was a bit cheaper than what they're doing now, but lacked the bound neck and active electronics. It's excellent quality:

    That was pretty tasty. I usually hate slap in gear demos, because it turns into clank 'n wank, but this was nice. Good job.

    My dear young man, don't take it too hard. Your work is ingenious. It's quality work. And there are simply too many notes, that's all. Just cut a few and it will be perfect.
