So, after a long, hard mountain biking journey today, and before going home to shower, I stopped by the local music shop to see what was good. Boy, oh boy, did I find good. They've only been in business a year, so before they had, well, used stuff, and cheapo guitar shop geetars and basses. Austin and the likes. Well, they're the only shop in town, and now that they've got solid business, they're getting better dealers. They just signed on with Schecter, which I didn't know of till I walked in and saw the Stilletto Custom 4, Baron-H, and the Model-T. I've been wanting to play a Schecter for sooooo long, just on looks alone, and so I finally got the chance. I ed all over the Custom 4. The neck was exactly what I want in a 4. I've not played a jazz, but I can say that the neck was somewhere between Ibanez Soundgear and P-bass. Filling, but not enough to ruin the main course. I think I doodled around for about half an hour, and this thing was perfect Way lighter than my Ibanez, smaller body, yet it's still build of mahogany. The EMG's sounded great. I've never played EMG's, and these things still got a phat sound that I like, just not as much as the Bart's in my Ibanez. I also doodled on the Baron, but the knobs kinda messed me up, I couldn't really figure em out.... too impatient. The body edges bothered me, and all I could really coax from it was great slap and string harmonics, courtesy of the birdge MM-bucker. The knobs are really sleek black barrel things. Really nifty. So, I hope to put the Custom 4 on layaway soon. It's the red version shown here.
