I am majorly liquidating pretty much all my guitars and basses to buy one really expensive guitar. I haven't had this bass too long, having purchased it from a forum member a few months ago, but I will say I love it and that is no lie. Here is the link I bought it from: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fs-schecter-diamond-studio-5-nordy-pups-pre-960629/ Here is the quote from that ad, which pretty much sums up the bass: "Up for grabs is a very nice Schecter Diamond series studio 5. I have gone through this bass and after a full fret dressing, I re-assembled it using custom built Nordstrand Big Singles and Nordy 3 band EQ with push/pull (active/passive) control. (upgrade worth $425 alone) She is now ready for a new home. You will not be disappointed. Structurally a 10, but this isn't a studio princess. She has some bumps and bruises, but nothing bad. Just a few dings and scratches. Cosmetically I'd put it at a solid 8. The neck is fantastic and the frets have a lot of life. The Nordy Big Singles really bark and growl. Here is a link to ZZounds website for reference, reviews and specs. http://www.zzounds.com/item--SCESTS5" I only played it at home a little bit, and frankly I didn't notice much in the way of bumps and bruises, but better to be safe with that description than sorry. I am kind of a low post-er here, but I have maybe 13-14 years of feedback on Ebay under Suho99, and have a bunch of deals on Sevenstring.org as Suho. I am looking for $525 shipped in the continental US. Pics are also from prior owner.
